I have taught computer science in college and high school for several years, and have taught algebra at a local community college.
Prior to that I worked for many years as a senior engineer in the computer software industry.

I have tutored students in math and computer programming. I specialize in teaching all types of pre-college math, general computer science, a number of programming languages (C, C++, java, and perl), and various Microsoft Office Tools (Word, Outlook, Excel).

Having worked in the software industry, I know the relevance and importance of these subjects, as well as their practical applications.
I try to challenge my students, encourage them, and give positive feedback. I have a positive attitude, a good sense of humor, and a lot of patience.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

Knowledgeable

Jan helped me become confident in my trigonometry problems. He spent time to help me and was focused on me understanding the work.

Christa, 1 lesson with Jan

Great tutor

Jan is an awesome tutor. He's very positive and very patient. I recommend him to anyone trying to learn math.

Brandon, 6 lessons with Jan

Great tutor and very patient

Jan is a very patient and thoughtful tutor. He has worked with my daughter three times now and I couldn't have chosen a better tutor. Jan is punctual and thorough. He will not let my daughter give up and he makes sure she understands. I would highly recommend Jan to anyone for math help. He has a true passion for numbers and how to solve any equation.

Chris, 24 lessons with Jan

Very patient

Jan took the time to assess my son's current level of aptitude and understanding before diving into the session. He then spent two hours patiently reviewing three weeks of lessons that had been confusing and unclear. By the end of the session, my son was gaining confidence and really understanding the fundamentals of geometry. Jan has a real gift for explaining these concepts. I'm expecting great things from this engagement.
