About Daniel


Bio

I have been tutoring since grade school, for a total of over 20 years. During high school, I joined the math tutoring program. Tutoring continued into college, where I received my BS in Computer Science, as I tutored for friends and as a teacher's aide in computer science courses. Even after graduating and moving on to the "real world" with a full time job, I continue tutoring on the side.

My approach to tutoring is to find out from the student where they are and where they want to go. ...

I have been tutoring since grade school, for a total of over 20 years. During high school, I joined the math tutoring program. Tutoring continued into college, where I received my BS in Computer Science, as I tutored for friends and as a teacher's aide in computer science courses. Even after graduating and moving on to the "real world" with a full time job, I continue tutoring on the side.

My approach to tutoring is to find out from the student where they are and where they want to go. As a tutor, I have helped bring student's grades up from F to A. In mechatronics, I have helped students bring their ideas to life. Some students have built automated pet feeders. Another built a 3D printer. One student built a bike helmet notifier. If she sat on a bike without having her helmet on, the bike would sound a reminder bell. She took this on to science fairs. Many students have continued on to receive awards at science fairs such as Synopsys science fair.

I built a combo lock breaking robot. Put in a combination lock that you don't know the combo to, and it will find the combination in 20 minutes or less.

At UCSD, I was a TA for many courses, and the computer languages course helped a lot. Once I learned 10 programming languages fairly well, I began to relate them to each other and see what patterns were common, and what language features exist. Now, picking up a new language is a matter of finding out which ideas are in the language and how they are expressed.

Let's get you where you want to be! I'll help guide the path and get supplies to make your learning as smooth as possible.

Typical tutoring sessions are 1 hour long, and repeat at the same time of day and same day of week every week. Different scheduling can be arranged.

Some languages I can help with include, but are not limited to:
C, C++, Java, Racket, Scheme, Ruby, Bash, Scratch, Lisp, OCaml, Clojure, ClojureScript, Prolog, Guile, Matlab, Python, Snap!

Linux

I have used GNU and Linux both on personal laptops and professionally for over 20 years. As a software engineer, I write developer tools using Linux for deployment on other developer's Linux systems. I also develop and maintain Linux systems currently serving public facing web pages.

Ruby

I learned ruby from why's poignant guide before his identity was revealed, and before matz had a beard. I've created servers and clients for transferring images to wireless cameras that are easy to set up around the house. At another company, I developed admin tools for in-house use for setting up services on new machines and testing existing services.
