About Nannan

I have always been willing to help others with our computer science courses during my college time and in graduate school. I was an unofficial tutor during the first year in NYU and my students liked my teaching. I became an official tutor for Basic Algorithms during my last year.

I'm willing to be friends with my students. I'm easygoing and willing to hear about whatever difficulties inside or outside class from my students. I might be able to give suggestions. I think seeing my student happy is as important as seeing them making progress.

I have been trained in computer science for 10 years since high school, have my own up and downs, and did well in the end. The experience of going through the hard time and finally conquering it makes me fully aware of most of the difficulties a student might come across during the process and know about a way out. I am very patient and give sessions according to each student's level. I spend my time understanding my students' difficulties and guide them through step by step for both their course materials and their homework assignments. If the student finds that the way of thinking introduced by the professors is too hard for them to accept, I can also find some other ways and tricks easier for them. Those tricks are gathered from my fellow classmates, our seniors, my former students and myself during my computer science training in high school, undergrad and grad school. According to the professor of the course that I tutored, my students told him that I did better than the TA of the course. I myself also find it very exciting to spend time with students helping them through their difficulties because their every little progress gives me great sense of accomplishment and makes me feel happy for them.

Please feel free to contact me. I'm looking forward to solving any problems you come across during your study.

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.

Computer Science

I took the course for Basic Algorithms and Advanced Algorithms both in College and Grad school and got A for all the courses. I was an official tutor for Basic Algorithms in NYU.

Java

I took the course for Basic Algorithms and Advanced Algorithms both in College and Grad school and got A for all the courses. I was an official tutor for Basic Algorithms in NYU.

I have been using java for more than 5 years.

Pascal

I was trained for International Olympiad in Informatics for 3 years during my high school and we used Pascal to program the answers to a set of questions in limited time. I know quite well on how to convert each algorithm to a working Pascal program.
