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.

java

Great tutor, he really know the subject matter. He is very methodical helps you understand the problem and how to break it down to smaller pieces before coding.

Marian, 11 lessons with Carter

Very knowledgeable and patient

He is very knowledgeable and loves helping people. He helped me step by step with programming and explained everything that was going on. He also asked questions to ensure I was understanding. Very patient and teaches well. I wish he was my teacher for all my classes.

Kritsia, 3 lessons with Carter

Patient and Professional

Carter helped me understand concepts with Abstract Data types using Java. I have used several tutors over the years to help understand some programming concepts and Carter has been by far the BEST of them all. I Highly reccomend Carter to anybody who is looking for help with computer science concepts!

Ryan, 6 lessons with Carter

very knowledgeable. Good personality. Patient

I needed to get 3 assignments completed in java. Carter was very knowledgeable and patient with me as we worked together. He taught me to use the compiler Eclipse and we worked on syntax and placement. He also taught me rules of java and how to make my programs efficient, told me where and how I could cut down on repeat commands and make the program more concise. I would highly recommend his services.

Amber, 4 lessons with Carter

Great tutor

He was able to explain everything in a manner that easy to understand. Also, he gave me some great examples of how to continue leaning the Java concept covered.

Cesar, 3 lessons with Carter

Alhanouf, 3 lessons with Carter

Wonderful teacher and a delight to talk to!

I really enjoyed my tutoring session with Carter! He was able to help me with my homework without even looking at the assignment guidelines because he is a master programmer. I appreciated that he explained the concepts thoroughly before diving into the details of my code. We went through line by line and he explained what worked well, what wouldn't work, and what would be better practice which was particularly valuable. He has a gift for teaching and an amazing knack for knowing exactly why a student is struggling and targeting that area. I particularly enjoyed speaking with someone who experienced the birth of the field of computer science and the rise of the personal computer.
