About Devon

I tutor because I enjoy seeing my students excel in subjects they have previously struggled with. I have found that more rewarding than gaining knowledge and earning good grade myself is to help others do so. I love my major (Computer Science/Cyber Security) and still practice it in both my current job as a software engineer and in my free time, and tutoring is one avenue I use to keep up my programming skills.

I started tutoring while a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy as part of a student-run group study program, where I tutored my peers in computer programming, networks, and cyber security which lead to vast improvements in my students' grades. After graduation, I moved to tutoring a local high school teacher so that he could more effectively teach his class in cyber. I visited the class a few times in person to give guest lectures.

I love school and did well, earning a 4.0 Major GPA and a 3.79 Cumulative GPA. I have taken courses in: programming languages, computer architecture, networks, object-oriented programming, natural language processing, theory of computing, and systems programming. I am proficient in: C, C++, x86, Java, HTML, Javascript, Python, php, bash, and more. I currently work as a software engineer and use my skills regularly

If you want to not just improve your grades, but actually understand the subject matter, then I am the tutor for you. Look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Programming

I am proficient in languages C, C++, Python, Java, Javascript, x86, PHP, HTML, and others through under graduate classes, self-study, or through my current career path. I have taken a course in Programming Languages. I understand the underlying principals of programming languages and am able to learn most languages easily.

Computer Science

I have a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science with a focus in Cyber Security. I am currently employed by the government as a software engineer.

Discrete Math

I have taken discrete mathematics as an undergraduate at the United States Naval Academy and received an 'A' in the course. Discrete Mathematics is the foundation for many of the following high-level Computer Science courses I have taken as an undergraduate, so I routinely referenced my notes from Discrete Math. I assisted many of my classmates with the course both while I took it and once I had completed the course.

Networking (Computer)

Taken a course in Netowrking. Currently employed as a Software Tester for network configuration software. Have created, configured, and maintained multiple physical and virtual networks.

Knowledgeable tutor!

Devon is patient, and know his stuff/material very well....took time to break everything down for me and was very understanding as I was a little uncomfortable since this was my first online tutoring session. I would definitely recommend him.
