I have 10+ years of tutoring/teaching experience.

I'm usually very goofy and clumsy. Students are never afraid of asking me questions.
I know how to teach to students who love math and how to make it simple for students who hate math.

Computer Science Success

Cau was able to view my assignment and came prepared to assist me with the task. He knew the subject matter (C++) and was able to deliver the help in an organized way. I will use Cau again.
