Learning to write software is an essential 21st-century skill.

Good programmers are among the most sought after on the job market today. What you see in your head is what you write. I'll teach you the most important things in programming that will be of practical application. Many times, students are confused about why they are learning a particular concept, and how does it apply to anything in the real world. I teach in a way that makes it fun for students to make that connection.

I have been teaching for a few years. My experience, listening to many different students and their problems, enables me to deliver a lesson that is unique and most applicable for each individual. In addition, I make myself available, free of charge, throughout the week over emails. The more excited you are to learn, the more you can get out of me.

I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science. I have worked as a Computer Scientist on US Defense projects through Honeywell Aerospace. My projects have ranged from classified mission-critical systems to commercial aviation. Formerly I was an Engineering Fellow, and Software Consultant at the Manpower group. I have been honored to receive awards for my work on Computer Graphics technology for display subsystems in commercial and military air-crafts. Currently, I work in the field of Virtual Reality.

Let me know if I can help you.

I've been teaching C/C++ for a few years. I've been working with these languages for the last 15 years. I've worked on mission critical projects sponsored by the Department of Defense along with commercial projects for the aviation industry. My teaching method focuses on building the student's sense of logic. Thinking like a programmer in C/C++ needs a little bit of guidance. Most of the time, I find that basic guidance in the fundamental concepts gets overlooked in the middle of heavy coursework, lengthy requirements for homework assignments, and the load of 3 - 4 classes that students have to tackle during their normal semester. Limited time and strict curriculum requirements from the state are driving teachers in universities and colleges to increasingly depend on the student to figure it out. Some of today's most successful programming languages like Java, Javascript (scripting language) have borrowed heavily from C. If you can make a commitment to learn it, it can pay off big time. When you know C and C++, your confidence in programming will grow. Learning any programming language in the future will not be a chore.
C++,

C++

I have more than 15 years of experience in both C and C++. I have worked on projects ranging from Mission Critical systems to Commercial Aviation. I started teaching a few years back, and know how to guide students around many pitfalls of learning a new programming language. My students range from absolute beginners to very advanced. For Advanced students, I teach concepts, and important details of the C++ Standard Library, and the latest features of C++11. You'll learn practical programming using C++11, and STL with working code samples. I also teach C++ problems that come up in technical interviews. I have interviewed with, and worked for Fortune 500 companies. If you're proficient with C++ and STL, and are looking to warm up for your technical interview, I can help you prepare for it.

Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering encompasses many things. My Bachelor's degree is in Computer Engineering, and my Master's degree is in Computer Science. I've been in the field of Computers for the last 20 years. I primarily teach Programming languages, Software Engineering, and Computer Science. Besides that, I also have knowledge of computer hardware. I used to build all my machines myself, and would build PCs for my friends while I was in college. If you want to build your next gaming rig, I can teach you how to research the parts. You'll learn how to select hardware that are compatible with each other, and how to put it all together from scratch. I wouldn't charge you $99 / hr for that. Just email me if you have a quick question on hardware, and I'll be happy to guide you in the right direction free of charge.

Computer Programming

I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Arizona State University. I've taught folks who want to redefine their career or just want to take their career to the next level. I've had students who want to get a better job or just need a crash course to prepare for a job interview. They do well in their interviews and sometimes land the jobs. Those are probably my most satisfying experiences and the reason I love to teach.
Computer Science,

Computer Science

I have 14 years of successful experience in programming and overseeing both high and low level software development. My primary job responsibilities have been design, development, programming, performance tuning, speed optimization and structural coverage analysis of software, firmware/embedded applications. Sometimes syntax can be boring but the good news is syntax is the short and the easy part. The fun is in the logic. As learning to read music isn't the most exciting thing and you cannot really make good music by reciting the notes only, learning the syntax for a computer program alone will not make you a good programmer. I'll help you to develop your sense of logic, appropriate algorithms and practical data structures. I can help you to learn the concepts of Software Engineering and Software Design - how to identify and apply the correct Object Oriented Programming patterns to real world problems.
HTML,

HTML

Learn HTML to be able to build web pages. It is the glue that holds together all your elements, content, styling, and scripts. There are a few software on the market that will write the HTML for you but it is something you'll need to pick up if you plan on learning CSS and Javascript, and become a front-end web developer. HTML is really the easiest language to learn. If you're learning Javascript with me then either you already know HTML or you're learning HTML as we go along. if you want to just learn HTML on its own, I can teach you the fundamentals necessary for moving forward with web-development in 3 sessions. There are web pages on almost anything you can think of. Your only limit is your imagination. And they are all written in HTML.
Java,

Java

I teach AP Java. I've been teaching for a few years. I mostly use Java for Android Development to connect with C++ programs using Android NDK and Java Native Interface (JNI).
JavaScript

JavaScript

I currently work for a company that designs 3D Computer Graphics applications for the aviation, medical and the defense industry. Among other things, we're also bringing the power of desktop 3D computer graphics to the web, portable devices, and virtual reality headsets using Javascript, WebGL, THREE.js, CSS3 and HTML5. I'll teach you Javascript that is immediately applicable. You can be at any skill level. I have courses designed to start you off based on your experience. If you're not proficient with CSS or HTML, don't worry because I'll teach you the basics of CSS and HTML along the way. You'll also learn about the latest Javascript language changes that are introduced with the recent ECMA 6 standard.

Review

The session went really well. Bivas explained everything patiently. He is very talented and has a lot of experience in software.

Vaishnavi, 1 lesson with Bivas

Patient, Knowledgeable, Prepared

Bivas helped me prepare for a technical interview where most other tutors said it could not be done. I sought to understand C++ and troubleshooting complex systems within a few week period. Bivas came prepared for each of my two sessions with a plan and material he created to help me practice and additional resources to use as homework. Aside from the computer science knowledge he presented, he has helped me solidify a more programmatic thought process and method for approaching problems. His diverse background and ability to break down difficult concepts into digestible pieces has helped tremendously. Oh and I got the job!

Knowledgeable and great individual

Bivas helped improve my understanding of multithreaded programming concepts in C and gave me great career advice. I am very appreciative of his expertise and insight.

Oliver, 1 lesson with Bivas

Wow, what a great tutor!

A god among tutors, a hero among confused students. In just one hour, Bivas was able to help me not just understand but master a concept I couldn't figure out for two weeks (even after asking friends for help, and watching online videos). He explained it in a way that flowed more logically and simply, and didn't just tell me the steps, but explained why, and had me do examples myself so that I got to the point I didn't even need to look at my notes to do the examples. Now I feel completely confident on the topic. Thanks Bivas!

Exceptional Tutor

I was having difficultly on a data structures lab and turned to wyzAnt for help. My experience with Bivas sharply contrasted my experience with the first tutor I met with. He responded promptly to my emails and clearly had spent some time preparing before meeting for our tutoring session. With Bivas’s guidance I was able to complete the lab and understand it on a deeper level. His first-hand experience in the software industry has also been really helpful to me in planning out my career. If I need a tutor for CS/programming again Bivas will be the only tutor I contact from here on out.
