About Tom

I am a Software Developer that has worked in the Silicon Valley for 20 years. I can provide tutoring on a technical level and also provide information about the actual work environments in the valley, including the challenges of working in high tech.

I taught High School Students at San Lorenzo High School in Northern California, I am also extremely patient and will be motivated to make sure the student understands the subject matter and I will not just simply solve the problems for the student if that is not the goal.

I provided technical support for the Turbo C compiler for DOS in the 1990s. I was on a tech support line that charged callers $2.00 a minute for consultation. I have used C for a total of 20 years professionally. I supported the first versions of PC/Windows based C++ compilers for Borland International. I have used C++ primarily throughout my career.

I have many years experience with Java programming and Concurrent Programming Concepts. I have recently had to use my assembly language skills both INTEL and MIPS for tutoring jobs.
