About Nirmala

I offer tutoring sessions plus course work and project help to Middle school/High School/College Students and Working Professionals in the following subjects :
- Java/J2EE/AP Computer Science
- Python Programming
- R Programming
- SQL and Database technologies
- Web Design and Development using HTML/CSS/JavaScript etc.
- Graphic Design using Illustrator/Photoshop

I hold a Master's in Physics and an Associate Degree in Computer Applications. I strive to create a learning environment that is comfortable for all students. My sessions are very interactive with hands-on coding and execution, and students work on programs about 60% of the time. Those who have never touched a computer should be as at ease in my class as those who have prior exposure. Also having a professional background in Computer Applications Programming aids my teaching abilities by portraying real-life scenarios to help students understand the concepts.

I have several years of professional experience :
- OO Concepts, the Java programming language, and the J2EE suite of products
- Web Technologies such as HTML, CSS, and Java Script
- SQL and Database Technologies such as Oracle, SQL Server, and DB2
- Adobe CSS products such as Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Photoshop for Graphic/Web Design.
- Other programming languages such as R Programming and Python

The key to being successful is to be ahead of the game, as technology touches every division of life. I am looking for highly motivated students; eager to share my learning experience and help the student succeed.

Wonderful! — Nirmala is very patient with me, and proves to have extensive knowledge of the subjects she teaches. In my particular case, I had only a few weeks to get the hang of a year's worth of AP Computer Science, and Nirmala was very helpful at all times. She always slows down to make sure I fully understand a topic before we proceed; that way I feel confident and less uneasy about starting new subjects. ...
