About Ben


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, JavaScript, PHP and ASP.net. Since completing this degree program, I have worked on various websites. I continued to study programming after finishing my degree program at DeVry Chicago.

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ASP.NET

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.

C#

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.

C++

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.

Dreamweaver

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.

JavaScript

The first time I learned JavaScript was when I was a student at DeVry Chicago. I used JavaScript based technologies on several projects. I have continued to learn more about this web scripting language since graduating from DeVry.

I can assist you with learning how to use JavaScript to make web pages dynamic. I can assist you with JavaScript technologies like jQuery and AJAX. I can show you how to use embedded or external scripts.

Linux

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.

Microsoft Access

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.

PHP

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.

Python

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.

Visual Basic

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.

Web Design

I learned about web design in my degree program at DeVry University. In my courses, I learned design fundamentals. I learned how to create mock-ups with Adobe Photoshop. I am familiar with how Microsoft Visio can be used to design interfaces. I have designed several web sites.
