About Freeman


Bio

I worked in the science education department at Harvard College Observatory for over 10 years creating the first software that allowed students to totally control robotic telescopes over the WEB.

I enjoy working with people of varying technical backgrounds, and helping them courteously no matter what their level of technical understanding is. I love helping people figure out how to get software and technology to work best for them.

I tutor in: Computer Programming, Java, JavaScript,...

I enjoy working with people of varying technical backgrounds, and helping them courteously no matter what their level of technical understanding is. I love helping people figure out how to get software and technology to work best for them.

I tutor in: Computer Programming, Java, JavaScript, Linux, Python, iOS, HTML5.

I am an award winning dyslexic software engineer who believes that my dyslexia has helped me to be more creative in developing software and solving problems. I know how to teach others how to do the same.

Computer Programming

I have a BS in Physics and have been using computer programming languages as a professional programmer at Harvard University. The American Institute of Physics has awarded 3 of my software packages as first place winners in one of their software contest. I served as a programing resource to many Harvard professors and staff in many computer languages and operating systems while the Harvard University. I was awarded the technical person of the year award at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
JavaScript,

JavaScript

I have been a collaborator with Harvard edX to create interactive JavaScript applications to educate people. One of my applications is an interactive simulation of a BeanMachine(also known as the quincunx or Galton box) that uses HTML5 Canvas and JavaScript to allow people to visually understand the binomial theorem. I also developed a dashboard to help monitor student activity completing course assignments and progressing through their work. The dashboard uses the JavasScript d3 library that allows for highly interactive web pages. I have also developed interactive 3-D models using the Javascript three.js package.
Linux,

Linux

I have worked with Linux professionally for over 10 years at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, developing software to control robotic telescopes. I work in the Bash shell. Linux has helped me get the job done from parsing, piping, editing, filtering, and controlling jobs.
Python

Python

I have worked in Python at the Center for Astrophysics as well as developed my own personal interactive food blog with Python and Django. I have also helped a nonprofit with their Django/Python website, and developed video editing software using Python. I find Python is a wonderful language for getting things done.

Freeman

I've met with Freeman like 4 times now. We are studying beginning Python. Freeeman is patient, but more importantly he examines and puts effort into the lessons we have. For instance, recently he brought examples to our meeting to simplify my assignment and make it more understandable. That was really helpful and I was very appreciative.

Helpful with Javascript

Very good it was fun and always enjoyable. He has his own style but if you are patient and listen there is a method to his action. Worked on defining functions and calling functions, passing parameters to functions and worked on the syntax issues of Javascript programming Language.
