About Jeff

As a physical chemist, I work with mathematical models that can become computationally intensive. At my day job, I apply my programming skills in MatLab and Python to create animations, simulations, and programs for my colleagues to use. I also created our company's time-tracking software. My expertise in programming comes not only from the courses I have completed but also from extensive practical experience.

Before accepting my current position, I worked as a community college instructor. I have taught general and organic chemistry to a large number of students. Teaching in the diverse community college setting helped me hone my communication skills; I learned to present information in a variety of ways and to make the material relevant to my students.

I am able to help with basic coursework in Python or Matlab. I can help debug code, offer suggestions on algorithms, or explain programming principals.

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.

MATLAB

I use MATLAB on a daily basis. MATLAB is the programming language that I used to create my employer's time tracking software, which is now used internationally. At my previous job, I used MATLAB to create a data analysis program that reduced a multi-week data analysis procedure to something that could be finished in a matter of hours. My strong background in mathematics includes coursework in linear algebra, which provides a foundation for understanding the mathematics of MATLAB.

Python

I successfully completed An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python, taught through Rice University. While taking the class, I programmed a port of the classic arcade game Q*bert. My port earned a place in the course "hall of fame" and a position as an online teaching assistant. Since taking the course, I have used Python to create various pieces of software for my employer. In addition to my Python coursework, I have taken other computer science courses such as Introduction to Systematic Program Design.

Another great Python tutor on Wyzant — Jeff was able to help me, on short notice, to complete my Python assignment. He was very knowledgeable and willing to answer all questions I posed to him. He walked me through each step and explained everything as he went along, which was extremely helpful. We used the Wyzant features to connect remotely and get the job done, which was cool since I had no idea that the features existed. I woul ...
