DeVry Chicago (Multimedia)
I have been tutoring at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines and Skokie, Illinois for one year. I have worked with a diverse group of students, and I have helped them with different programming and computer application concerns. I have tutored students in Java and C++, HTML, CSS, SQL, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access. The challenges my students face remind me of when I first learned the basics of programming. Helping students complete assignments and learn concepts is very rewarding for me.
Similarities and differences between computer technologies motivate me to learn more all of the time. I want to motivate students to learn more. I appreciate the challenges students face when learning computer technologies for the first time. I want to help students meet these challenges.
I am patient. I enjoy explaining technological concepts in ways that different students can understand them.
I look forward to assisting you this semester.
I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Multimedia Design and Development at DeVry University Chicago. The program I completed there focused on web development technologies such as HTML, CSS, Read more
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.
I have completed college level course work on this technology. I have also studied C# and Visual Basic, which are languages that can be used with ASP.NET. I am familiar with Microsoft Visual Studio, which is the IDE used to develop with ASP.NET.
I have learned about how C# works with ASP.NET and how it can be used to build desktop applications. I understand how C# uses classes, like Java. I am familiar with Microsoft Visual Studio and Mono, a framework for developing C# in a Linux or MAC OS environment.
I have assisted students who are using C++ in computer science courses at Oakton Community College. I understand how C++ is similar to Java. I am familiar with how this programming language can be written.
I learned to work with Adobe Dreamweaver when I studied web development at DeVry Chicago. I have used Adobe Dreamweaver to develop several websites. I have continued to learn about this technology as it has changed since I first learned it.
I completed four courses in Linux during the 2014 - 2015 school year. These courses covered BASH shell scripting and Linux Systems Administration with Fedora. I am familiar with Linux commands, and working with the shell, or command line interface.
I can assist you with learning how to work with Linux commands to operate a Linux based system. I can also assist you with organizing Linux commands into scripts to automate Linux system tasks.
I have assisted students with Access projects for an Access class. I understand how this Microsoft Application is similar to MySQL. I am familiar with how this application can work with data, and how it can be used to present it.
I completed a course in PHP at the end of my program at DeVry University. I have used PHP on several projects. I am currently learning about the new and advanced features of this language, such as object-oriented PHP.
I completed a python computer science course this past fall at Oakton Community College. I have continued to learn about python on my own. I am familiar with python functions, file IO, and the data structures supported by the language, such as dictionaries and tuples.
I have assisted students with python programming. I can assist you with using different python modules. We can discuss good reasons to use python, as oppose to any other scripting or programming languages.
I completed a course on Visual Basic last fall at Oakton Community College. The course that I completed explained how programming concepts are applied in this .NET language. We can discuss when and where to use .NET, as oppose to any other technology.
