About Osa


Bio

I am a Math/Science/Computer Science enthusiast, and even more, an education enthusiast. I used to be an individual who was not fond of math/science/STEM subjects, particularly because it was never presented to me in a way that was appealing. It wasn't until I was in high school, and had an unbelievable teacher, that I realized how much I loved and appreciated the subjects, and that I had never been taught in a way that made me personally gravitate toward the math/science fields.

I am a Math/Science/Computer Science enthusiast, and even more, an education enthusiast. I used to be an individual who was not fond of math/science/STEM subjects, particularly because it was never presented to me in a way that was appealing. It wasn't until I was in high school, and had an unbelievable teacher, that I realized how much I loved and appreciated the subjects, and that I had never been taught in a way that made me personally gravitate toward the math/science fields.

Most importantly, what this has taught me is that knowing a subject matter and teaching a subject matter are two different skill sets which are often assumed to be overlapping, which isn't necessarily the case. Through working with different types of people with different learning strengths and learning styles, I have learned that not everyone learns, thinks or processes information the same. This means that it is important for a tutor to be able to identify the individual strengths and learning style of the individual being tutored and customize the content accordingly. My happiness does not lie in my strengths or my knowledge, but in transferring it to the individual being tutored, and knowing that their understanding and appreciation for the material is increasing.

I pride myself in knowing and understanding a wide variety of mathematics, sciences and computer science fields. Moreso, it is my personal commitment to make sure that the individual being tutored is learning adequately, and is happy with the process. I am very patient and very detailed, and try to make learning as easy and fun as possible. I have tutored students on many levels: I have tutored elementary and middle school students in different varieties of math and science, I tutored middle school and high school students in math, science and computer science classes, and have tutored college/university students in math, science, and computer science classes. I have also spent a little time tutoring high school and middle school students with standardized tests, such as the PSAT, SAT, ACT and the TEAS tests.

Ultimately, I am here to serve individuals with the need or interest to learn. Whatever it takes, I am dedicated to education and learning, so let me help you! I am also open and receptive to feedback, so let's make this a pleasurable experience!

Also, depending on time constraints and specific circumstances, I may be available for emergency tutorial sessions, in addition to helping with assignments/coursework or studying or reviewing material for specific tests. It is helpful to know your situation, so I can ensure that I can indeed help given the specifics of the situation.

C++

I have and still do write C++ code, and understand many programming languages, including C++. I have taken CIT 120 at Bunker Hill (in Boston), and passed the class with an A). The course was entirely based on C++. I have also helped students out with C++ tasks, such as understanding code, writing programs and even interpreting intermediary tasks, such as how to write pseudocode (which allows an individual to more easily and coherently generate code), or modularity (which focuses on writing simple building blocks of code which are reusable, and thus more elegant).
Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

I majored in Computer Science, covering topics ranging from programming in different programming languages (C++, Java, Android, iOS, Swift, Python, HTML, SQL, etc.), to Computer Networking (Cisco classes), Linux Administration and Data Structures. I am also a long-time programmer and Linux user, having worked my entire life in the tech industry doing various technical jobs, such as System Administration, Dev/Ops and software development.

One of the BEST Tutors I’ve ever had!

Osa is a lifesaver! I needed statistics help and he was able to quickly understand the data I'm working with. He was so knowledgeable and patient and explained the subject to me in a simpler way that I would understand! His teaching style helped me understand stats more quickly than any professor I've ever had. He was also able to identify certain biases and where the statistical results might be misleading. He is a fantastic tutor and I recommend him to everyone!

Knowledgeable, encouraging tutor

Osa helped my daughter with her AP computer science labs of her school. He not only helped her understand the lab but also used her ideas, encouraging her at every step. My daughter feels motivated and her concepts are also clear.

Madhurima, 2 lessons with Osa

Knowledgeable

I have been working with Osa for java tutoring and he's truly great. Very patient and most importantly really knows his stuff. I feel impressed to say the least.

Marlene, 4 lessons with Osa

Awesome Patient Teacher!

I've had few lessons with Osa so far and he's been super helpful and knowledgable about everything I provide him with. He helped me get a better understanding of programming and the material I am presented with from my class and how to go through the right thought process and get to the answer needed.

Abdullah, 4 lessons with Osa

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He knows his subject(s) well. He makes the problem easy to understand and explains the matters clearly. My daughter's grade improved a lot. He has a sense of humor that works well with my daughter's learning, making the subject seem fun and interesting also. He goes beyond helping her with homework and teaches her the material so that she understands and and do it herself. He is very patient with her. I highly recommend Osa if you need tutoring.

Wanda, 18 lessons with Osa

Overall Excellent Tutor

I have been working with Osa for over a month now and I am very satisfied with my improvements. He is always available to help out whether it be a tutor session or helping me to complete an assignment over email. After each session I have a much better understanding of the material. It takes very little time for Osa to help me understand what I need to know which allows more time to complete my assignments. I have done very well on all of my assignments as Osa will always thoroughly look the work over to assure it is perfect. I would recommend Osa to anyone in need of tutoring services.

Ryan, 3 lessons with Osa

Great tutor

Quite simply, Osa is an amazing tutor. He is extremely intelligent and it rubs off on you in the lessons. He will go above and beyond measures to ensure that you succeed in the task you set out to complete. Osa is very passionate about teaching and his love for computer science is inspiring (not to sound cheesy). If you don't understand something, he will have patience in explaining it to you and will provide personable analogies to help you understand. Altogether, I highly recommend Osa as a tutor.

Ben, 1 lesson with Osa

Great tutor! Very patient and smart!

Osa is a FANTASTIC tutor. He is the best thing that has happened to my grades. Not only is he extremely smart and easy to understand, but he cares a lot about his students and makes sure that they understand the material. He explains concepts well and follows up with his students to make sure they aren't struggling with the information. I HIGHLY recommend Osa!
