About Joseph

Hello, everyone! My name is Joseph, and I currently reside in sunny San Diego after having just graduated from the California Polytechnic University, Pomona with a degree in Computer Engineering and a minor in mathematics. Having taken numerous math-heavy courses for my engineering degree and math minor, I have the knowledge necessary to help students succeed in their endeavors.

As far as experience goes, my interest in tutoring stemmed from helping elementary students who came to the free tutoring offered by the Mexican American Student Association back at Cal Poly Pomona. From there, I then became a part time tutor for a program called Upward Bound and even participated in a summer residential program for Upward Bound, where I took up the role of teacher assistant, tutor, resident advisor, and mentor to the students.

Despite my towering height, which can be intimidating to some, I promise I'm a friendly individual with numerous jokes at hand and a knack for explaining mathematical subjects. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

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 took a course on Object Oriented Programming and another on Data Structures that both used C# as the primary language for coding. These were both part of the curriculum for my Computer Engineering degree.

C++

This was the primary language used throughout my undergraduate studies. There was an introductory class on C++ my first year, followed by a class that taught us how much easier it is to use C++ vs a more primitive language like Assembly. Later down the road there was a course that required programming a microcontroller in C++. My degree is in Computer Engineering.

Computer Engineering

My degree is in Computer Engineering. I feel like that speaks for itself. As far as courses, I know about microcontrollers, computer architecture, basic electrical engineering principles, operating systems, networks, programming in C,C++,C#, assembly, Verilog, some Java/Python, and in addition I know about integrated circuit design down to the layout level.

Computer Programming

I have taken many programming classes for my Computer Engineering degree, including classes for programming in C, C#, C++, Verilog, Assembly language, and some Java and Python. I also know about data structures, object oriented programming, and operating systems.

Electrical Engineering

The computer engineering flowchart at Cal Poly Pomona requires a lot of the fundamental electrical engineering courses to be taken, including things related to circuits, network analysis, electronics (such as transistors and diodes), and microcontrollers.

Logic

I took a set theory, logic, and proofs class back at Cal Poly Pomona. I also took a class on critical thinking that followed similar principles to the logic part of the math class on logic. Finally, programming classes have a lot of logic-based lectures.
