About Bao

I have an extreme passion for education and a strong belief that I should play a part in giving back to the community. And from my passion and belief stemmed my interest in tutoring and teaching. I have been tutoring for nearly eight years now. I started out as an volunteer (in high school) as a tutor for an after school program, where I helped students who were struggling in class. After a while, I picked up a few private tutoring jobs while continuing my volunteer experience. After graduating from high school, I worked part time in a learning center to help students ranging from middle to high school with the respective math subjects they are learning in class. When I have time (during summer holidays and such), I would volunteer in local public schools to help with their curriculum. And during the academic year, I have TA'ed/taught a few computer science courses on campus. I have worked with tutees ranging from as young as ten years old to as old as university students.

I am a Computer Science major and have taken a great number of intermediate as well as upper/higher level computer science courses (few examples include computer architect, algorithms, artificial intelligence, network, etc.). I am confident about explaining core/fundamental computer science concepts via examples and in higher-level languages such as python (for younger audiences). I have been a tutor/TA'ed for some of the classes offered in my university.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns. I would be glad to answer any question and/or discuss any relevant experiences.

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.

Computer Programming

I graduated this spring from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor's Degree on Computer Science. I have taken various CS courses including introductory levels (during freshmen/sophomore years) as well as upper division courses such as Network, AI, Security, Algorithms, and more. I have assisted few CS courses on campus as well as provided private tutoring to students that needed help on Data structures.

Computer Science

I recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a Computer Science degree. I have both instructed and assisted in CS courses on campus. In addition, I have also provided private tutoring on campus for CS students who were struggling with their classes (namely Data Structures and Algorithms). All in all, I have a solid understanding of CS fundamentals and theories and is able to convey/teach those ideas to my students.

Python

I recently graduated from UC Berkeley as a Computer Science major. I have taken quite a number of courses (Computer Programming, Network, Computer Security, and more) that dominantly used Python; hence, I am comfortable developing in this language. Moreover, I have assisted in a CS course that teaches students Python. I had the opportunity to help introductory students with core concepts and assignments during office hours and lab time.

Ruby

I have taken a Software Engineering course that uses RoR (Ruby on Rails) as the main programming language. That semester we learned about the development cycle and many advantages of using RoR to employ an Agile style. We worked with a non-profit client in building a web app using RoR (which was fully released by end of the semester).
