About Joseph

I am a programmer with 40 years of experience in both distributed and mainframe environments. I have extensive knowledge of Visual Basic, Java and Python on PCs and distributed systems. I have considerable expertise in COBOL on mainframes. I have also worked with the Oracle DBMS and SQL.

I have a proven track record as a tutor in both Java and Python, and I recently taught an “Introduction to Python" class. Teaching is important to me because it gives me the opportunity to transfer the knowledge that I have acquired throughout my career. I prefer tutoring individuals or small groups because this allows me to interact more directly with each student and provide the personalized instruction that he or she requires to fully understand the subject matter.

I have spent many years developing business and scientific programs in several different computer languages and environments. This has provided me with a unique perspective that allows me to facilitate learning and understanding of computer programming. I can simplify and explain basic concepts, data structures and program design. I customize my approach to each student's needs and abilities.

I encourage my students to contact me to ask questions about the material and to schedule additional lessons. Although I require at least 24-hour notice of cancellation, I am flexible about rescheduling based on availability. I assign homework and projects intended to further enhance the learning experience. I provide feedback through periodic assessments in order to evaluate each student's progress.
