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.
Well prepared and knowledgeable tutor
Tom was very well prepared for tutoring sessions with my daughter, even asking ahead of time for assignment notes. Tom was invested in success and was not just going through the motions.Mark, 3 lessons with Tom
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.Amy, 6 lessons with Tom
Tom was great, really knows his stuff. Completely understanding of my situation and never flet like he was talking down to me me. We were just two colleagues trying to work out the problem. He gave me a couple suggestions that totally made something extremely simple.Domingo, 1 lesson with Tom
Great Tutor, highly recommended
Tom is an excellent tutor. He really helped me understand my material I had for my exam. Before I went to him, I didnt know how to do the material and I was lost. But Tom made it very easy for me to understand and he explained it to me well. His tutoring sessions really prepared me for my exams. Im very happy I found him. Ive had many tutors in the past and he is definetly my favorite one. If you want to be a better programmer and you want to do very well in your classes and understand your homework, Tom is the way to go. I definetly recommend him. I feel confident that with Tom as my tutor I will finish my semester with an AAllen, 1 lesson with Tom
