UCLA (Computer Engineering)
Hi, I'm Kevin. I've spent the majority of my life learning and teaching others. At UCLA, I was employed at the PIC Lab, which is a computer lab where students came to complete their computer programming and math assignments. It was my job to help the students through any struggles they may encounter. I have to say that was my most enjoyable job in my career. I love seeing people have those moments of realization, and helping them achieve it.
Aside from my PIC Lab job, I've tutored many people in algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. Ages ranging from 15 to 40. I like to have the people I'm tutoring try to explain how the problem they're having trouble with was taught in class, so that I remain consistent with the teacher/instructors teaching methods, and so I can see if there are any steps in the problem solving process that are missing or incorrect.
I will not solve actual assignment problems for you, rather I will help you solve problems simpler and similar to the ones giving you trouble. I follow the saying "you have to the learn how to walk before you can run."
I think the most important part of being a good teacher or tutor in any area is being passionate about the subject. I thoroughly enjoy math. It was my favorite subject in school. I chose a degree in computer engineering because it is the closest career to my favored math flavor.
I have many years of computer programming experience in my career, mostly in C and C++. In my PIC Lab experience, I got accustomed to Java, lisp, perl, and VBA for the MS office suite.
I hope I can help you with any of your programming or math needs. Hi, I'm Kevin. I've spent the majority of my life learning and teaching others. At UCLA, I was employed at the PIC Lab, which is a computer lab where students came to complete their computer programming and … Read more
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.
I've tutored three different people in algebra 2. They went from struggling with the subject matter to not requiring my assistance within a couple months. I enjoy the material covered in Algebra 2 and get excited seeing others learn and appreciate it as well. I hope you'll let me help you with Algebra 2.
I got my degree from UCLA in computer engineering, programming mostly in C and C++. At the PIC Lab, I tutored students mostly in C++. I held that job for 3 years, until I graduated. I programmed in C and C++ at Raytheon for 5 years in my career.
Precalculus is one of my favorite subjects. It introduces trigonometric functions, expands on exponent/logarithmic functions, simplifies systems of equations through the use of matrices, as well as a few others. I've recently tutored two people in precalc. Both were high school students.
