I have spent the last 5+ years managing a web application development staff, training them on our development process and coding techniques. I have strong communication skills, lots of patience, and an ability to relay information in a way that is understood by the individual. I have a BS in Computer Science from the University of Dubuque in Iowa and have been working as a Software Engineer in Des Moines for the last 15 years. My experience has spanned both desktop application development and web development.
I'm a country bumpkin, very much enjoying the outdoors and the country life. I'm happily married and the father of three girls. I strongly feel parents need to be role models for their children and to take an active role in their children's lives. I look forward to being able to assist you in any way I can!

Garritt is a great teacher, and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again. He is patient, knowledgeable, and very courteous. I needed help with a final project for a Java data structures class, I don't think I would have completed this project without him. I just wish I could give him 6 stars!
After few lessons with Garritt about recursion (a notoriously difficult topic for computer science students), programming with recursion suddenly made sense to me! He is able to explain confusing and complex concepts in a very clear, easy to understand way.
I started working with Garritt in February and met with him every week thru April. Every lesson was excellent!
I have nothing but positive things to say about Garritt! He was always on time for every lesson. He is very knowledgeable on the topic (Java) and was able to explain things in different ways until I understood! Garritt came to every lesson positive and energetic! You could tell he has a passion for helping people learn! He was always very kind and patient! I never once felt uncomfortable asking questions.
There was one time where Garritt was unsure of the correct way to solve one of my problems. However he did not leave me hanging, after our session he went home and did more research and emailed me his finding a day or two later. This is going above and beyond!
Garritt is a fantastic tutor and I would certainly look him up again if I needed help on a different topic! His help made all the difference for me.
Garritt is a first-rate tutor and has the programming skill-set to understand concept and relay them in an understandable fashion. There was absolutely nothing about our time together that I thought was less than excellent. He is very approachable, will answer the dumbest question you can think of without making you feel embarrassed and is extremely reassuring. On top of that he is also very flexible with tutoring times and location.
Very patient and responsive to questions and needs.
Very dependable input. Garritt came prepared with some pre-researched ideas on how he could help. Impressive.
I have had 4 sessions with Garritt now and it is finally starting to sink in. My trouble has been trying to learn java in an online environment and just not being given enough instructions to develop a good understanding. With the face to face meetings with Garritt I have been able to gain a better understanding of the materials. I hope a couple more sessions will get me back to where I fee comfortable doing this by myself.
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.
