About Kenneth

My specialty is teaching science and IT to anyone willing to learn! Science truly is fun and learning it is rewarding and exciting. I have taught science and IT to thousands of students across the globe, across several continents, and have found that students are willing learners, capable of aspiring to great heights, given a proper learning environment. I utilize a variety of teaching strategies, all emphasizing a hands on learning approach. U-tube, physical models, and related materials provides a more realistic and practical way to bring home difficult scientific concepts. You will be amazed how easy subjects like chemistry become once you have actually done the experiment yourself! This is especially true in the IT field, where you will be able to see your code in action!

Through my own scientific training, where I earned several degrees (biochemistry/neurophysiology/computer science) as an undergraduate, and my PhD in Computational Neuroscience, I found that the experimental side of my studies was really important - it made learning interactive and helped me to truly learn the material. I will provide that same approach to you - so be prepared to explore science as it is meant to be - a means of understanding the world around us through intellectual and hands on experimentation.

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.

Biostatistics

I have taught biostatistics at the undergraduate and graduate level at several universities, focusing on the use of statistics in analyzing biomedical data for the purposes of extracting information.

C

I have been programming for well over 20 years, and C was my first real programming language. I have studied the C programming language at college, and have since taught several thousand students the joy of programming in C.

C#

I teach C# programming to mid level college students, within the .NET framework. This language is interesting, as it is a cross between C++ and java, extracting out the best of each language. it is fast becoming an industry standard language.

C++

C++ was my first object oriented language that I learned - I have taught programming in this language for well over 10 years, to professional, undergraduate and graduate students at a variety of universities.

Computer Programming

One of my undergraduate degrees is in computer science, where programming is a critical component of your coursework. I have taught computer programming to literally thousands of students at both the professional and undergraduate level.

Computer Science

One of my undergraduate degrees is in computer science, which is a broad and general topic. I have taught a variety of computer science classes at the college level both at undergraduate and graduate level for well over 13 years.

MATLAB

Matlab is a fantastic programming language for scientific programming. I have used Matlab for over a decade, and have taught Matlab programming to Bioinformatics and other non-computer science students for many years.

Organic Chemistry

I have a degree in Biochemistry, which subsumes chemistry, and have worked as a bench chemist in industry and academia. I understand and truly appreciate how chemistry is an integral part of the world around us.
