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.

Kenneth is working with me on R topics, machine learning and bioinformatics.
I highly recommend you give him a call.
Kenneth R. is a joy to work with. He is very detailed, dedicated, and has flexible hours. He listens well to my son and is taking a very good paced approach to make sure my 11 year old understands what is happening at every step. Ken also communicates with me very well so I know where this process is going and when. Ken and my son share a very interactive, "just do it," learning experience. My son looks forward to the lessons and takes positive actions in between by doing examples, etc. I couldn't be happier with what's going on and expect measurable success from this exchange over time.
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.
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.
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++ 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.
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.
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 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.
