About Tom

I am a Software Developer that has worked in the Silicon Valley for 25 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.

If you need tutoring please schedule something at least few days before your assignments are due or you are being tested, its very difficult to help the night before a test or assignment due date.

Great Expert

It was a great session. He really helped me understand better and we found couple memory leaks which is good to be discovered early. Highly recommended and definitely we are going to meet again. I like the style and the way we discussed issues and hopefully, but we needs lots of time to do simple things due to the complexity.
