About Carter


Bio

In my professional career as a software developer, I formally trained many adults and mentored younger people who worked for me. I am well informed about software design with a detailed knowledge of algorithms, data structures, object-oriented software development, relational databases and other topics. Java, C++, C and SQL are among the computer languages I have mastered.

In my professional career as a software developer, I formally trained many adults and mentored younger people who worked for me. I am well informed about software design with a detailed knowledge of algorithms, data structures, object-oriented software development, relational databases and other topics. Java, C++, C and SQL are among the computer languages I have mastered.

My objective is to help each learner master the subject, but also to help them become more effective learners on their own. My approach is to stick closely their text and other materials, making sure they can complete the assignments correctly. In addition, I make sure they understand what they are doing so that they don't get lost later on.

The first time we meet I consider a trial lesson. I do my best to help and, at the end of the hour, I decide if I can be of help and ask the learner if they want to continue with me as their tutor. If they do not, I do not charge for that first hour. For online lessons, I do not charge for a brief session to determine if we can work together.

If you choose me as your tutor, I look forward to meeting and working with you.

C

I have been a professional software developer since 1981. I learned C in 1983 and developed a PC-based test scoring system as my first project. I used C/C++ full time for five years and occasionally after that. I led the successful migration of a software development group from Fortran to C / C++. As part of that effort, I designed and developed a library to use mapped memory files for lookup, and other tools. My approach is to help you complete whatever programs or projects your course requires. We can address your high-level approach to the problem, the design of the classes you will use, the data structures you will use, and even the syntax of C. Short of doing them for you, I will do what is necessary to get each project completed in a way that you fully understand.

Great Tutor

He is awesome, and does his best to teach you the material. He has advance knowledge of C programming language. He does a great job of blending class material brought to him, and giving real world examples of how it applies.

Franklin, 8 lessons with Carter

Recursion

How to work with recursion and output them as odd integers and total them in row of pins to find value and sum of all in the pins. Did a great job of working with me through it

Harris, 7 lessons with Carter

Amazing Skilled Tutor

Worked on Generic List and Array queues. Taught me the importance of the assignment and implemented functions. Looking forward to future lessons.

Knows His Stuff!

I learned more from Carter in our short lesson than I did from my school instructor! Learning Java is certainly challenging. I am certainly going to be in touch with Carter AGAIN.

Super Smart

Carter A. has helped me on my C++ Assignments. He teaches you by helping you understand it and helping you figure out what’s wrong with your code if you have errors. Great Tutor !!

Isaac, 2 lessons with Carter

good tutor

Carter is very knowledgeable, understands Java very well. He is patient and takes things steps by steps. He can help you to understand concepts and reasons behind

Jing, 3 lessons with Carter

Knowledgeable and patient

Carter was a great tutor. He helped me break down my project for Java and discrete math. He showed me step by step on how to create a certain output using new concepts.

Nicole, 11 lessons with Carter

Informative and detailed

For this first session Carter helped me see the value of learning the basics and being able to identify problems and plan solutions. Putting a project together can be overwhelming but being able to break down a problem and solve it in sections is great foundation to have in becoming a swe and Carter did a great job in conveying how important the basics are. Currently working on my assignment and detailing some long and short term goals for our next session.
