I’m Siva Jasthi! I have a Ph.D. in Engineering and I have been working in the software industry for the last 25 years. I played many roles such as Developer, Architect, Manager, Trainer, Auditor, and Consultant. In the industry, I designed, developed, and delivered software using several programming languages.

I am a lifelong learner and earned several certifications, such as SAFe Process Consultant (SPC), Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Quality Auditor (CQA).

I enjoy sharing my industry experiences with the students. I have been teaching as Adjunct Faculty at a local public university for the last 20 years. I taught Computer Science classes to undergraduate students and working adults (18 to 40-year-old students). Some classes I taught are Programming (using Python, Java, PHP, MySQL), Object-Oriented Design, Software Engineering, and Capstone Project. The size of these classes ranges from 8 to 30 students. I also held many individual sessions with the students who are looking for additional help.

I also enjoy volunteering and started teaching Computer Science classes to middle and high school students at a local non-profit weekend school. I now serve as a Program Coordinator for Digital Literacy classes at this school. In this role, I design and develop the course curriculum and lesson plans for all five levels of classes (HTML and CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL, Python, Java).

I taught classes in a classroom setting, one-on-one tutoring, and online zoom sessions. I take pride in translating complex concepts into simple analogies and examples. My teaching philosophy involves active learning, where I encourage students to focus on doing, problem-solving and learning from mistakes.

I am easily reachable and will provide fast responses to your queries. Contact me to schedule a lesson!

Patient and Knowledgeable Coding Tutor!

Often times these reviews feel forced or uninspired but Siva was extremely helpful and answered my question promptly and in a way that I could understand. Since the sessions usually last an hour sometimes the tutors on Wyzant try to go through the problems as fast as possible and you don’t have time to understand what they are trying to say, or they have to look up the solutions as they go. However, Siva was able to understand my issue with my PHP code almost instantly, and provide an above and beyond answer. I highly recommend him!

Extremely knowledgable and overall outstanding tutor!

I went to Siva for help with a Python programming project for grad school. He guided me through the entire process, but also took time outside of our scheduled sessions to help me, going above and beyond to ensure my successful completion of the project. I could not have asked for better assistance and I will be utilizing him again for future needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone else in need of Python or other programming assistance!

WORTH EVERY PENNY

I am the most NOVICE of NOVICE Students to be introduced to Python and Computer Science in my late 30s. My lack of comprehension was even astounding to myself as I do hold advanced degrees and certifications. After accepting that I would need a guide to walk me thru imputing data into a program correctly, I had the pleasure of scheduling a session with Siva. He took his time and explained in depth why each line was needed for every step of the program that was built thru-out the session assisting me in understanding my own errors in my approach to coding. As I continue to embark on this new journey into Data Science, I plan to continue scheduling sessions with Siva to assist my brain in learning how to THINK, READ and CONSTRUCT Language like a Data Scientist.

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Siva is knowledgeable, patient, and very organized. Our son enjoys the lesson and would like to do more with Siva! The lesson started with some reviews and Siva really tried to figure out where my son is.

Juliana, 6 lessons with Siva

Very Helpful!

Am needing to make charts from data from Google Sheets. This seems to be rare as many tutors say they are mainly familiar with Excel. But Siva has been very flexible in his ability to adapt to Google Sheets, and then teach it to me. Thanks, Siva!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Siva was well prepared and knowledgeable about Python, Github, and Jupyter Lab. He was very patient in his way of teaching and was able to teach several concepts in a short amount of time. He was also prompt in responding to messages which made it easier to schedule sessions with him.

Great tutor

Siva was very patient and very knowledgeable. When he saw we did not cover every topic he set more time aside before that assignment was due to help me. You can tell he enjoys teaching. Highly recommend this tutor

Extremely helpful and prepared tutor

Siva really helped me understand a coding problem for a class assignment. He was prepared for our session, had reviewed the assignment ahead of time and helped guide me through completing the problem. I would highly recommend working with Siva.
