Bio

Hello, my name is Joji. I am passionate in computer programming specially Java and Open Source Software. Back in 2000 I was teaching assistant at Oklahoma State University for Introductory Java classes. I assisted many students with their course works. After I graduated, I've worked in various industries since 2001 as software developer. Now I am here to help you learning design, writing, debugging, testing in Java programming language.

Hello, my name is Joji. I am passionate in computer programming specially Java and Open Source Software. Back in 2000 I was teaching assistant at Oklahoma State University for Introductory Java classes. I assisted many students with their course works. After I graduated, I've worked in various industries since 2001 as software developer. Now I am here to help you learning design, writing, debugging, testing in Java programming language.

I am more than happy to tutor at any skill levels. If you are a student in high-school or college and need some help on programming classes, that's great! I can explain how to approach solving algorithmic problems, then apply the solution to design and implementing working computer programs (Java).

Perhaps you are not student any more. You are working and considering to switch your career to become a professional programmer. I have few co-workers who recently changed their career to software and are doing very well. I'm more than happy to help you to make this transition successfully. I am able to not only share my programming skills, but also I'd love to share some of my work-related stories as a software developer.

I am proficient in Java language but also familiar with the other technologies such as MySQL databases, git source control, shell scripting, maven build tool, tomcat web servers, linux OS and HTML.

I am currently full-time software developer at Chicago based software start-up company. And, I would like to spend my after hours tutoring you.

Looking forward to working with you soon.

I started Java programming at the time Java 1.0 was released in 90s. I was teaching assistant at University during I was student for two years. After completing my master's degree, I have worked on various industries as a professional software developer. I speak 3 languages during a day: English, Japanese, and Java.
Linux

Linux

I have been using Linux OS as my main personal desktop computer since 2006. Also, my chose Linux OS for my work laptop for the current job (1.5 years). I would like to help a student to understand develop software applications on Linux OS. Also, I like to tutor a student by introducing many useful Linux commands and shell scripting. Simply put, I just love to share my Linux passion. My favorite Linux distributions are: Crunchbang (Waldorf), Debian (Wheezy), Mint (>12), Ubuntu (>11.10), Lubuntu (>12.04)

Very patient, and really really knows his stuff

If you don't know how to do something, he will go over it in many different ways until you really understand that something really well, won't give up, and consistently teaches a ton of new things, whether he goes by his plan or yours. There really isn't anything that he does not know how to do in Java or Linux, unless it is a really rare case that he hasn't seen before(not likely though.) In just three lessons, I was able to basic things in Java and nearing eight lessons, he taught me things that I didn't even know I would ever be able to do. He also goes above and beyond when it comes to helping you outside of lessons. Just message him and he will quickly respond and try his best to solve your problem. He also spends hours preparing for the lessons by writing new code and teaching himself for whatever needs you may have. By far the best tutor I've ever had.

Excellent help with Java Web and Maven using Eclipse

Joji, helped me to assemble a bunch of different Java Web projects (servlets, jslt, bean) I had created in Eclipse and was getting errors with. He troubleshooted the POM and Web.xml files with me, and helped me to do some maven builds so I could get my projects running and errors removed from eclipse. He also helped me make the files smaller so I could hand them into my instructor. Excellent tutor, I highly recommend!

He knows his stuff!

Joji was very patient, he helped me work on my java project and took me step by step through it. He taught new things about java I didn't know before and he was very helpful. He knows his stuff very well, I will definitely be back!

Extremely competent, excellent tutor

Joji is an excellent tutor. He is detailed and you can tell he takes a deep interest in the student learning the material.

Very well experienced and responsible tutor

Today, April 8 is the first day I studied with Joji. He is really gentle and experienced with his field. I am totally satisfied with him. After the meeting finished, I got an email from him about the issue that we still have not finished yet. Such a Japanese spirit. So responsible and gentle. Thumb up! From now on if I have trouble with Java, I will study with him.

Great tutor! Very patient!

The tutor was very knowledgeable and patient. I learned a lot of new things about coding in Java and some cool tricks using Eclipse. Definitely will reach out again!

5 Great Months of Lessons

I wanted to update my review to say that Joji and Simon have now been working together consistently and harmoniously since July and it’s been a great experience. Joji is among the top tutors I’ve seen and each week they’re working through the curriculum for the AP Computer Science exam. Our son has been studying for a number of years, but Joji is the one who will actually get him through the test prep and he will likely take the test before high school.

Extremely Patient and Adept

Joji is extremely patient and encouraging. He's a whiz at Eclipse and has shown me so many tips and tricks to make debugging easier. I like that he helps by drawing out diagrams to explain concepts; I'm very visual and learn best when I can see and do.

Last Minute Request

Joji is awesome, he is patient and explains the fundamentals of Java very well. He breaks down the concepts and syntax into simple and easy to understand pieces of information. In our last tutor lesson he was able to meet with me just a few hours after I asked for an emergency lesson, and he stayed late with me! I highly recommend Joji to any new student of Java.
