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.

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I have been working with computers since the 1960's and have 30 years of experience as a software developer. I have been using Microsoft Excel since its first release, and used Visicalc and Lotus 123 before that. I have built complex spreadsheets that connected to external databases.

Computer

C,

C

I have been a professional software developer since 1981. I learned C in 1983 and C++ a few years after that. I used C++ full time for five years and occasionally after that. I led the successful migration of a software development group from Fortran to C++. As part of that effort, I designed and developed a class library to support exact arithmetic, 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.

Knowledgeable and Experienced

Carter helped me with a Java project that read and appended entries to an existing data file. He not only showed me what I was doing wrong but showed me how to properly complete the assignment and how to do research to find the correct functions and methods. He brings experience from both academia and industry and teaches you and doesn't just assist you with the assignment so that you learn better.

Very concise and understood of the workings of the problem. I will recommed him anytime. Carter is very adept at figuringout what the problem is and getting to thr bottom of it.

Elvis, 1 lesson with Carter

Knowledgable and professional

Carter was able to help me further understand SQL. I'm over half way done with my semester in college and it's become a bit overwhelming. Connecting with Carter helped me put together loose ends and provide a logical approach to each question we answered. Thank you Carter!

David, 1 lesson with Carter

Knowledgeable and helpful!

Carter was an amazing tutor! He was very patient and made sure I understood every step of my program. I learned more from him today than I have in my daily programming class. I highly recommend Carter and will continue having him as my programming tutor!

Christina, 1 lesson with Carter

Awesome Lesson

What took my professor a whole week to explain in class, and I still didn’t understand it, took Carter only an hour. Carter also broke it down to where I could understand and explained why I was writing my code like I was. He was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Carter. Note: He’s helping me on a huge project in my Java Data Structures Class. I give him ten out of five stars!

Amber, 1 lesson with Carter

Great teacher, helped a lot

Carter was very helpful in helping me remember a lot of the old Java that I went through over a few years ago. Helped makes sense of my current assignment.

Lance, 3 lessons with Carter

Just a good guy

Carter is just a down to earth good guy with no attitude and lots of knowledge. He will solve the issue and then suddenly, you will realize your problem is solved!

Kevin, 3 lessons with Carter

Knowledgeable and resourceful tutor

Carter helped me extensively with my C++ project and broke down the project step by step and even went into the details of what algorithms and syntax should be used. He made sure I understood the subject and was very clear in teaching. He has much experience with typical issues that arise with programming and is able to work through reasonable solutions.
