I currently teach programming at a community college, so I have lots of experience working with students, both in the class room and for individual tutoring. The languages that I currently teach include Java, Python, C++, and C#. Also, I have also taught and worked extensively with Excel. I teach a range of courses, from those with no programming background required, through intermediate programming and advanced programming. My students' evaluation of my classes and teaching techniques are consistently good.

I believe programming is best learned by working through examples. When I have to help students who are stuck on a programming concept, I work with them to reduce the problem or question into a few simple steps, then combine these steps into a more complex solution. I always try to give examples in programming about things that are familiar to students, rather than abstract problems. By programming something familiar, like the pattern on a traffic light or simulating a card game, my students see that programming is a way to model reality, rather than an activity not related to anything real. This teaching style results in better learning at all levels.

I realize learning programming can be intimidating at first and it's easy to get stuck on a topic and become frustrated. There are always alternative ways to explain programming topics and opportunities to get over a hurdle when you get stuck. Patience and persistence pays off on both sides of the teaching/learning relationship. I welcome the opportunity to help you understand programming and learn to love it as much as I do.

I prefer online tutoring. Please let me know when you are available and what topics you wish to cover.

Great help with Java understanding

My son is having some issues in his Computer AP class and Eric has been a lifesaver. He knows his stuff and has a great way of communicating with his students.

Dan, 9 lessons with Eric

Great dude and very helpful

We covered basic C# applications for about 4 weeks. Great tutor. To say I wouldn't have passed the course without his help would be an understatement. Eric was truly helpful and professional.

Dawson, 6 lessons with Eric

Great Tutor

Eric helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with in C#. He did this by not only helping me read and understand the specific problems I was solving, but also asking me questions along the way to probe for what I already knew and help to apply that to what I was learning. A great tutor. I wish he was my teacher.
