About Amy

I would love to help. I find online tutoring works quite well. I will have you share your screen with me. If you have an assignment, together we will write a working code solution. We will use the software development environment (e.g., eclipse) of your choice.

I'm a software engineer recently retired. My work experience includes coding in C++, Java, C, and assembler in the Linux environment. I have used tools such as vi and Eclipse. I have experience with various scripting languages including various Linux shells and Python. I am an expert at software design techniques including UML and object-oriented.

I have been tutoring with Wyzant for several years. Most my students need help with Java, C++, C, C#, or Linux. I have found the tutoring experience so enjoyable. I love interacting with and helping each student.

I have a masters degree in Electrical Engineering from CALTech (Big Bang Theory). I'm a married mother of two adult children. My 28 year old daughter is a veterinarian (TAMU) living in Germany. My 25 year old son is working in his field of Computer Engineering (UNM).

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.

C

I have developed software for 30+ years in the Unix/Linux environment. My job required me to interact closely with the underlying computer and attached hardware using the C programming language. I have tutored students in classic C subjects including Pointers, Memory Allocation, Bit Manipulation, ASCII, Hexadecimal Numbers, Sockets, Mutexes, and Semaphores. My goal is to teach you C, so that you too can be an expert.

C++

I have developed software for 30 years. The last 10 years I wrote predominantly in C++. I have tutored students on classic C++ subjects including: Object-Oriented Design, Classes, Inheritance, Pointers, References, Abstract Classes, the Standard Template Library (STL), Recursion, Data Structures, Dijkstra’s Shortest Path Algorithm, AVL Tree, Threaded Binary Search Tree, and Skip Tree. I am an expert in C++. My goal is to share my knowledge with you so you too are an expert!

Java

I have developed software for 30 years. Much of my software development was in Java. In the 3 years I have been tutoring most of my students are learning Java.

I have tutored students on classic Java subjects including: Object-Oriented Design, Classes, Inheritance, Abstract Classes, Recursion, Data Structures, Dijkstra’s Shortest Path Algorithm, AVL Tree, Threaded Binary Search Tree, Call-backs, Java GUI, and Model-View-Controller.

I am an expert in Java. My goal is to share my knowledge with you so you too are an expert!

Linux

I have thirty plus years of computer programming experience. I know how to use object-oriented techniques. I have worked in Unix based environments including Linux. My profession required the use of various programming and scripting languages. I have written extensive scripts in various UNIX/Linux shells including K, Korn, C, and Bash. I have also used other scripting languages including Java script, Perl, and Python.

I also have experience interfacing with UNIX/Linux programatically. I have interfaced with Unix using grep, socket, file and directory library functions. I am an expert on socket interfaces. Most commands available from the command line I have accessed programatically.

UNIX

I have thirty plus years of computer programming experience. I know how to use object-oriented techniques. I have worked in Unix based environments. With various programming and scripting languages.

Knowledgable and Passionate Tutor - Highly Recommend!

Amy has helped me multiple times over the last few weeks in advanced object-oriented programming. I have learned so much from every single lesson. She has walked me through many assignments and because of that, I have been able to pass every quiz/test with ease. I am a college senior and have never had any tutoring prior to this, but I am very pleased with her ability to help me understand. Her pa
