About Uchenna

I love teaching. It's always my delight to see someone through a hurdle, and I will go through great pains to see one succeed in his goal. As long as a student has a desire to learn, I believe it is the teacher's responsibility to impart knowledge to him or her.

As far as I can recall, I have had tremendous success teaching both science and art. In fact, I don't see much difference between both fields. My structured science education as well as professional work experience and my love for the arts places me in a unique position to effectively communicate almost any subject. I can reach technical and non technical people and help them broaden their education as well as learning skill.

I blend structure with creativity. I usually set the road map for a student, however I will alter it where necessary to suite him. I continually evaluate progress as well as obtain feedback from my students so as to achieve the learning objective. I can be counted on to give a sincere assessment of a situation and prescribe the reachable goals that people are looking for.

I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science with a minor concentration in Management Information Systems from Saint Bonaventure University New York. On my graduation, I was awarded a Computer Science medal for scholastic accomplishment. I worked as an Higher Education Equal Opportunity student tutor during my student days.

My wealth of knowledge includes a 10 year professional career in Information Technology, working as a Software Engineer and Programmer Analyst. Besides computer programming, I would analyze and document business processes as well as give presentations to diverse user groups. I also had the opportunity to mentor and train other development staff. I have proficiency in a multitude of software tools.

I learned Spanish as a second language. I completed two semesters of college Spanish at Los Angeles Harbor College worth 10 transferable college units. I obtained A's in Spanish levels 2 and 3. My love for personal development also inspired me to take 2 semesters graphic arts using multimedia tools. It is one more asset that I can utilize to impact on a students quest to learn.

I am also an aspiring pianist, guitarist, singer, and songwriter. On June 12th, 2015, I received both an associate in Music, as well as an associate in liberal arts from Los Angeles Harbor College.

As a Wyzant tutor with almost 600 hours of experience, qguite often these days, I get students that I already have helped some one else through the same exact project. I have helped numerous students from USC and UCLA, that have some of the most challenging assignments. I have helped many of these students not only improve their grades, but secure jobs, and enhance their careers. I look forward to doing much more for you or your loved one.
