About Mike

Hi my name is Mike. I am offering tutoring services in Computer Science. My specialties range from computer science to bioinformatics. I attend Solano community college, and previously Rochester Inst. of Technology in New York, where I completed the Computer Science sequence and minored in Bioinformatics and Biology.

Computational biologist with a passion for debate. My background is computer science with an emphasis on biological data analysis. I have varied experience coding in different languages and collaborating with peers to achieve a common goal. Nuanced programs, specific to the task at hand is my specialty. I excel in on the job learning and quick innovative programming.

Articulation is an essential skill to teach. Many professors don't thoroughly explain how to derive efficient and effective solutions to problems and instead assign projects with little to no background on why the process of solving problem is important. If you have a genuine interest in computer science and are struggling in your current course I am well versed in what assignments are assigned and how to complete them. If you want to develop fundamental skills and learn how to think like a computer scientist I can explain the conceptual aspect of computer science and help you develop a framework that will help you in your studies.

I am well versed in debate and communication skills. I participated in British Parliamentary Debate for many years and can teach cognitive and critical thinking to those interested in English and humanities based studies.

Kumon, 4 years of mathematics, Algebra is an essential skill in computer science.

Biology was my passion before I found computer science. I understand basic biology, cell biology, molecular biology, as well as microbiology.

Struggling students don't exist. There are only students. It is the job of the tutor/educator tailor the subject matter to the student. A dynamic approach to learning is essential, unfortunately most students that do not succeed or need a boost in their education can be helped. As a tutor I am willing to adapt. Education in all capacities from vocational studies to high level engineering are all equally important.

A tactful educational plan will always be more effective in teaching students than rote memorization or strict studying. Relaxed minds are more receptive to new ideas and concepts than stressed and anxious minds.
