My love of teaching stems from my love of learning. I have a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Computer Science, and I have over eighteen years of professional experience to bring to my students. My teaching experience includes being a substitute math teacher and an outdoor education instructor, as well as a parent and foster parent. I have tutored school-age children and assisted with homework, test preparation, and improving grades. I have also worked with adult clients in general computer topics and Math GED preparation. I have worked with a variety of school environments: students enrolled in online courses, students enrolled in traditional courses, students using online-only materials, and students using books and tangible materials.

I understand that each student is unique and has a different learning style. I like to understand the goal of each student to determine what kind of tutoring and teaching fits best. Some students are seeking to be shown examples of how to approach math problems, or how to accomplish a general computer task. Others are seeking practice refining skills, mastering a task, or passing a standardized test. I strive to use techniques that work for the student, whether that hand-held notes with colored highlighting, mnemonic devices and clever ways to remember topics, stimulating games, or simple repetition. I encourage practice and will give homework assignments between lessons if desired. My goal is to make learning fun and effective for each student.

My favorite topics are related to math and general computer tasks such as word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and general computer use. I am also skilled in programming languages such as C, C++, Java, and HTML/CSS. I know that it takes patience and dedication to be successful in education. I can work with if you are enrolled in a course or just want to learn something new or solve a problem!

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your goals in computer topics or math!

C

I have a bachelor's and master's degree in computer science, with a focus on software engineering. My undergraduate programming courses were taught in the C programming language, which has provided me with a solid foundation. Several of my graduate courses also utilized C. Professionally, I have eighteen years applying my C programming language skills between one private and two university employers. These tasks included designing, writing, testing, executing, and debugging programs written in C, as well as performing peer reviews on source code written in C. Finally, I have was a grader in graduate school for a class that was taught in C. I have tutored students in C and find that many students do well with small program exercises to learn specific parts of the language, as well as exercises intended to get an overview of the programming assignment goal.

Great APA formatting tutor

She taught me APA formatting. She was patient and very knowledgeable. She took the time to show me all that I had to do to write a research paper. She also gave me material to read on APA formatting. I benefited and enjoyed the session.

Great tutor!

Gwendolyn is very knowledgeable and patient. My two Outlook emails were very clunky in getting to them since I had to sign out each time. Installed chrome for the second email and now very easy. Helped me with lots of organizational skills and even got started on Excel for a basic spreadsheet for a fundraiser I'm chairing.

Joan, 4 lessons with Gwendolyn

Very informative and organized

Gwendolyn really helped me grasp the multiple Algebra concepts. She organized my notes and was very detailed with showing me different ways to solve the problems. I am hopeful to bring up my exam grades with her tutoring expertise. I highly recommend her. Cole E.
