About Arvind

I have taught at different levels over the years, starting with helping middle school students to High school and also BS computer Science students at California State University East Bay. I have a Master's in Computer Science and Bachelor's in Computer engineering. I like to teach students from the ground up for the long run so covering important gaps in thought process is more important right now then say write a cool app where the basic fundamentals are overlooked because we have used a tool which is doing the work.

I have worked over 20 years in Software Development Area on different languages, platforms and most importantly algorithms. The use of algorithms is prevalent in CS education the approach I try to take is to make the student comfortable first in what he already knows by filling any gaps in understanding and then build the foundation. I have found that as a effective way of teaching. At the same time pacing the material is different for different students, in the first lecture I try to gather that and so it is learning for me as well to learn the pace of the student and guide him to the correct rhythm based on the student's goals and comfort. So Goal setting every sitting is an important aspect of my teaching.

I prefer to teach online over weekends but will be flexible in accommodating different days as well.
