About Greg

I've worked in the analytical software business for a number of years, and have trained software engineers for Fortune 500 companies worldwide. I have extensive practical experience with using math and science for software applications. I have run a software consulting business for over 15 years. I have taught computer science courses for CU/Boulder and Red Rocks Community College.

I have B.S. degrees in computer science and physics from Colorado State University.

So...why be a tutor? I started tutoring my kids in math & science when they were in middle school because it looked like they would begin to lose ground otherwise. I discovered I liked it, and would up tutoring them and their friends later on.

My goal is to work myself out of a job - to make it possible for you to say "Wow. I get it. I don't need your help any more." Note that this means I won't do your work for you. Instead, I'll work diligently with you to make you more successful and more confident in your newly acquired skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C++

I have written a large number of lines of C/C++ code, and have trained and mentored professional C++ developers. I originally started writing object-oriented C code before the C++ standard was finalized, and was an early adopter of C++.

Computer Science

I have a B.S. in computer science from Colorado State University, and have taught computer science courses at CU and Red Rocks Community College. I have mentored and trained computer science professionals in the U.S. and Europe.

General Computer

I have a Bachelors' degree in Computer Science, and have over 30 years of experience in high-performance and analytical computing. I have taught computer science courses, including programming, object-oriented techniques, and software project management, at the university and professional level. I have hired and mentored a number of new graduates for software jobs, so I have a good understanding of what hiring managers look for.

Piano

You might be wondering why a computer jock would be interested in tutoring on the piano. I'm a professional computer nerd and a musician by avocation. Music is a nice release for me, and it turns out that there is a lot of overlap between scientists and musicians. I've been playing the piano since I was a little kid, and was originally a piano performance major in college. I'm a former church accompanist and organist. I've taught piano lessons to kids and adults.

Great Tutor

Greg helped me with an assignment that I was struggling with after taking a long summer break following my into to C++ class. He helped me refresh my memory about everything that I had forgotten over the summer and taught me few new things as well. I have already booked another lesson.
