About Colum

Bringing people to a new and clear level of understanding is in my nature and something I look forward to. I look for the current level of my students to see what they need to bring them up to speed, or to mastery.

I have over 210 College credits in Math, Computer Science and Liberal Arts subjects. With over 20 years in the IT field I have worked for many well known corporations as well as private consulting, in programming, troubleshooting and research, both in the US and abroad. Have been affiliated with organizations such as ACM, Mensa and IEEE.

I use an informal approach with concentration on critical areas, as well as prioritizing immediate needs such as pending tests, deadlines, etc. I have been told that I have unique teaching ability and can explain things in different ways according to different student's needs. Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Computer Concepts and Programming are only some of the subjects I could help with. The satisfaction of my students in meeting their learning goals is of the highest importance to me and their improvement and success is something I value personally, as well as professionally.

I look forward to hearing from you and for your future success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

On time and Gracious

Colum was on time and very gracious. Colum listened to all my "Mom" worries and listened to my son's input on his ideas to make this a positive experience for our son, M. Colum was in NO way judgemental or patronizing to him. He took a few minutes to do a quick assessment of what to focus on for upcoming sessions for math and also asked about M. future goals and where he will be attending Colleg
