About Kevin

I am currently also a tutor at Santa Monica College for the department of Computer Science and Computer Information Systems. The subjects I work with and the students I work with are diverse. The subjects I tutor range from C language to PHP/mysQL, and from Adobe Dreamweaver to Wordpress. Although my main focus in learning is web programming, I have kept myself familiar with many general purpose languages such as C, Visual Basic, and Java as I also help students frequently with these subjects.

I consider code debugging to be a crucial skill, and this is something I have worked hard to attain. over my work in assisting students faced with 'bugs' in code. I devised a set of techniques to troubleshoot programming code, which many students over the semesters used with much success - whether to Visual Basic, or to Java, or javascript. Some of the problem solving techniques are effectively done on pen marker and paper and not merely on the computer screen. I like to teach the use of native tools such as Google Chrome Developer which offer - once familiar - an excellent and fast tool to solve problems with web source code and css that can't be as easily solved with text editors such as Dreamweaver (my favorite web authoring tool), Aptana Studio, or Expression Web, or advanced search tools including search tools on the web.

I am a believer in the Socratic approach, emphasizing my essential role as ultimately showing students how important it is to formulate quality questions as the key to quality answers or solutions. Thus by asking the right question or questions, I can empower the student to find their own solutions.

I am willing to travel up to 6 mile radius from Downtown / mid-Wilshire area. I try to be flexible with my time, and offer a 24 hour cancellation policy.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to succeed in your studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C

I have tutored this subject for 2 semesters with great success, and have been familiar with this language for over 3 years. I am currently a tutor at Santa Monica College and the subjects I tutor range from intro and advanced Java, C, C++, web development languages, Visual Basic, PHP, mySQL, and more.
I am also currently a student at the college and working toward my Web Programmer certificate

Computer Programming

Classes I currently tutor at Santa Monica College are C, Visual Basic, C++, Java (intro and advanced), PHP, advanced web scripting, Dreamweaver I and II, Javascript, and web design with HTML5/CSS.
I emphasize the use of pencil, paper, and marker to map out and plan the programming solutions (including pseudocode and mind mapping) as a first step to make the coding more efficient, structured, and trial-and-error-free. I learned from my experience in tutoring that certain habits applied makes programming not only more manageable, but also much less intimidating to the student, thus leading to more confidence in the student. I also emphasize leading the student more with questions, to help them better discover their own answers.

Dreamweaver

I took Dreamweaver I and II at Santa Monica College. I have been using Dreamweaver CS6 for 2 years, and recently switched to Creative Cloud, which the Dreamweaver II class focused on. I am very familiar with Dreamweaver (both versions) and have tutored numerous students in my tutoring job at the Santa Monica College computer lab.

Web Design

I am familiar with Javascript, html5, css, and jQuery. I have extensive experience using Adobe Dreamweaver and also proficient in Photoshop CC, as it is an essential tool in developing web pages. I also am very familiar with Wordpress development. I have 1 1/2 years experience tutoring for the Computer Science and Information Systems department at Santa Monica College, where I tutored in subjects ranging from Java, VB.net, to web programming languages including PHP/MySQL.

Very good tutor!

Kevin is a very nice and good tutor. My son had fallen behind due to illness and Kevin has helped him catch up (and beyond) within a week! My son is now feeling confident and positive about his Java class. We highly recommend him!
