I have 15 years of experience developing and testing applications written in procedural languages including C and C like languages. I have developed web applications, language compilers, and office automation software using C and C++. My experience includes writing applications for Linux, Windows, and smartphones in C and Objective. I also have 5 years of experience evaluated safety critical embedded software written in C and assembly language. My approach to teaching C is to briefly introduce students to top down programming concepts, and to follow up with teaching the syntax and semantics unique to C. I also cover debugging and testing techniques. My instruction can also cover the use of the C library and other development libraries.

I have twenty years of experience developing and testing applications using in C++ and C++ like object oriented programming languages. I have taught object oriented programming at Durham Community College. My experience includes writing applications for Linux and Windows PC systems as well as embedded systems and smartphones using object oriented programming languages. I have also been employed to evaluate safety critical software written in C++ and other object oriented languages. My approach to teaching C++ is to introduce students to object oriented programming concepts, and then to teach the students the syntax and semantics unique to C++. I also cover the use of the standard C++ library. For more advanced students, I can also cover design patters used in C++ programs. I will set my pace and starting point based on the students current programming experience level.

Calculus,

Calculus

As a student, I received excellent grades in Calculus and differential equations in college, and as an electrical engineer, I have had years of experience applying those concepts. I am able to teach difficult math concepts by relating them to everyday concepts with which the student is familiar. Whether you need help to keep up with your class, prepare for an upcoming test, or qualify for AP credit, I can help you reach your goal. I have experience teaching Calculus to high school students, college students, and to students who need to complete math courses to qualify for graduate and business programs.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

As a college student, I received an award for having the highest average in chemistry of all of the students in the my freshman class. I have been very successful in reproducing that level of achievement with my students by providing them with an organized approach for solving chemistry problems on exams.
Physics,

Physics

As a college student I double majored in engineering and physics, and I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and discussing those subjects. I have had good success in tutoring college and high school students in mechanics, optics, and in preparing high school students for taking SAT II test in Physics. In explaining difficult concepts in physics to new students, I make use of analogies with everyday concepts that the student is familiar with so that those concepts are understood and not merely memorized.

Great Tutor

I worked on many coding assignments with him. He is an excellent tutor. He is very knowledgeable. In fact, he can code in multiple different languages. Also, he is a very nice person too—very humorous and willing to work with you. I highly recommend him.

Han Bit, 14 lessons with Isaac

Excellent Tutor

We found Isaac as a tutor last year, he is very knowledge in calculus and physics which he tutors my kid, and he is very clear to explain to the student in concepts and solving problems.

Lee, 2 lessons with Isaac

Great teacher! A really patient, knowledgeable and gifted teacher.

Isaac was a lifesaver and helped my daughter with some challenging Chemistry homework. He's a great teacher, he helped her figure out the answers herself so she can truly understand the underlying concepts. And we needed him on a really short notice. He stepped in and helped us, even staying up late to do it. Can't wait to work with Isaac again.

Rosemond, 1 lesson with Isaac

Fantastic!

I have worked with him for 2 years and he is super helpful. He really explains everything in a way I can understand! I got a concussion and he taught me 2 classes as I could no longer attend them. I have gotten all A's in classes he has helped me with!

Jillian, 23 lessons with Isaac

Patient, caring, and professional tutor

Isaac helped meo finish a terribly difficult C programming assignment. It was long and tiresome but he helped me pull through. I am greateful to him. I could never have finished my assignment on time without his help. He really tried his best every step of the way and it just goes to show the dedication he has for the people he is tutoring.

Mohammed, 1 lesson with Isaac

Very knowledgeable

Mr. Isaac’s extensive knowledge of Calculus put me at ease. We went over my tests and he walked me through every problem I got wrong .This was our first meeting but I’m already more feeling more confident and hopeful.

Renee, 9 lessons with Isaac

Patient and Helpful

Isaac was invaluable in helping me complete a complex Algorithms project. He was very patient and helped me solve each problem as it arose. He knew the material very well.

Jasmin, 1 lesson with Isaac

Attentive and Helpful!

Isaac really helped me develop new skills and broaden my understanding of Python. I needed help with a specific and difficult assignment and he was more than willing to pour through it line by line. Cannot recommend enough!

Reiss, 2 lessons with Isaac

Great Tutor!

Isaac answered all of the questions I had and explained everything we were doing and why we were doing it! I wasn't sure how the tutoring session would go as this was my first time using the site, but it went better than expected!
