About Tom

If you are having trouble learning to program, or have homework or programming projects that you need assistance with, then I would be happy to help you succeed. Modern computer languages require the student to learn to think in ways that are very different from almost any other discipline. This can make learning concepts and applying them in code difficult grasp and apply. If you are working in Python, you will have to grasp object oriented concepts. If you are using SQL you will need to use set-theory to retrieve data from a database, and if you are using JavaScript, you will need to code and think in what is called the functional style in addition to object oriented concepts. This can be overwhelming as well as frustrating, which can to poor results.

I have very deep experience in corporate IT and I am constant learner and a builder of software systems for over 10 years. I have worked for world class companies such as Mercedes-Benz Credit, ING Bank, Citicorp and two state governments. I have trained software developers one-on-one in a corporate setting and assembled a formal class at one state government, quite successfully, and I can do the same for you. I love this stuff and you may be surprised at how much you will too!

Your Success is my Business.

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.

Python

I have 12 years' experience working with Python as systems administrator and full stack developer. I have developed an introductory course which gets the student coding a working program within 15 minutes. I have extensive experience with the pandas statistical library which is used in data science applications as well as the Flask and Django web application libraries, to name a few.

SQL

I have done database management work for ING, State of Connecticut, State of Pennsylvania, General Reinsurance and Mercedes Benz Credit Corporation and have certifications in Sybase, DB2 and soon MS SQL Server.
