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). I would love to help. I find online tutoring works quite well. I will have you share your screen with me.

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 passion for the material is evident and she is willing to explain and demonstrate multiple ways to accomplish the task at hand. While nervous at first at the idea of online tutoring, she made the experience very easy and comfortable. When I started my Java class this semester, I had no idea how I would be able to pass. Now, I am looking at finishing with an A thanks to Amy's help. Please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment. Every minute of Amy's tutoring is valuable!
Helped with details made my work more efficient. Explained how and why certain things. I will use her services again in the future she's helping me get through my summer course because tutoring is limited in the summer session
Amy helped me navigate a challenging set of C projects and I look forward to booking with her again!
Very pleasant teaching, smooth, and concerned of students understanding.
not upset at all, patient, and understanding questions in the right target, motivating, I enjoy better my programming class after this meeting
She helped me understand my Unix homework better and taught me more Unix commands with how they work and how to work in the vi editor. She was patient and helpful.
Amy was extremely knowledgeable and helped me connect the dots in a very difficult subject. She was friendly and pushed me to establish and maintain best practices in regards to syntax. Very helpful!
Amy taught me Java. I was way behind in my beginner class (part of a master's degree) and she helped me understand what I was doing wrong while completing two assignments in two hours. She is pleasant and patient. I highly recommend her teaching skills.
It was also great that she was available at such short notice.
Quickly grasps the problem that you are trying to work through and helps you work through that problem step by step.
Amy helped me set up a working Java program to read a text file specified on the command line and to process it line by line, and character by character, ready for me to customize it for my project requirements, within a single one-hour session.
Amy helped me implement a priority queue as a binary search tree in C++. Amy answered my request for tutoring very quickly and was able to figure out the code pretty quickly after some research. Amy was a very good problem solver when it came to errors and how to fix them.
Amy is very patient but we are not a right fit.
She knows concepts well but some syntax of C language, she had to Google.
I am taking an introduction to Linux class and Amy has been a great help with prepping me for my skills exam. I look forward to other sessions with her
Amy has all the qualities. She is very kind, her knowledge in Java is great. I personally recommend her for any type of programming. Thanks Amy.
Amy's knowledge and patience was what I really needed to get a grasp on learning C#. I was frustrated before our session but now have a better understanding of the program. If I have a problem in theft future, I won't hesitate to use her services again. I highly recommend Amy for anyone needing tutoring in programming.
Amy was very patient with me and explained the purpose for using certain data types and how to use them. I was very tired from work , but she made the tutoring session informative and it didn't feel like work. Wonderful person, I recommend her all day everyday!
Amy taught and helped me with my computer science class - intro to programming. Speaking as someone who is a beginner in computer programming, she is patient and really helpful. Explaining concepts that I don't understand in an easy way and helping me feel confident in programming. I would definitely recommend her and will be getting more lessons from her in the future!
Really explains well and gives you way more than you expect. She knows the material very well and works with you til you get it.
Amy was an amazing tutor. The fact that she was able to help me even with extremely short notice was fantastic. Her knowledge on the topic of Java was very impressive and I enjoyed every minute I had learning with her. I highly recommend Amy if you need a Java tutor.
Amy is by far the best programming tutor that I have had thus far! She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and skilled. I can't wait to have another lesson with her and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!
She is a very good teacher! I am really impressed! Extremely knowledgable. Will definitely be getting more lessons from her.
Amy was excellent she helped me greatly with Connect 4 game I had to code in C++! I will be keeping her
I need help to understand how do do some coding questions about arrays in Java, so I sent Ms,Amy , and responded in minutes. She started the lesson immediately !!!
She taught me everything about Array , and after the lesson, she sent me some helpful Web sites about the lesson!
I enjoy the lesson with her and I will take many lessons with her in the future
Amy is one of the most patient and helpful teachers I have ever had. She really helped me out with a last minute Java lab and she made sure I understood what I was doing. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Thank you Amy for being so patient and detailed with why are things suppose to be written in a certain way. Amy have helped me get an "A"!
Amy is discovering where our daughter is weak in math and turning it into a strength with some extra practice.
Amy is helping me build a knowledge of Java. She really knows how to explain computer programming language in a way that a beginner can comprehend.
Amy is incredibly knowledgeable. She is a patient and kind teacher. I know I will be ready for the GRE within a month thanks to her.
Excellent assessment of our son's needs. He's now confident of his math ability. We'll be back for more; algebra & geometry.
Amy really helped my daughter through a rough year of geometry. We will start the year right with her at the helm for algebra II. She's awesome!
Amy is an excellent tutor and she has helped me become a more confident student. She is not only extremely knowledgeable but equally as patient. Amy has a wonderful approach and is always willing to explain complicated concepts. Along with all her other attributes, she is very personable and easy to work with. Amy genuinely cares you understand the assignment. From my experiences with Amy, I believe she has to be one of the top people in her profession. I am glad to have found such a great tutor and I plan to continue to work with her in the future.
Amy is very responsive and accommodating. If you need tutoring on the fly, she's the one you need to call. I worked with Amy to help me for the Quant section of the GRE. I would recommend her if you are looking for a true understanding of math, not for learning the format/tips/tricks of the GRE -- her speciality is math, not GRE formats, which she communicated to me in our first meeting. She helped me improve my understanding of mathematical principles and pushed me to sharpen my multiplication skills. She is willing to find videos, exercises and extra resources to help you learn the concepts. Over the break, she even offered to tutor me via Skype or by sending her text pics of tough problems. Overall, she was great. She also tutors in programming, which I'm sure she is phenomenal at too.
Amy is one of the best tutors I have ever worked with. She is a great communicator and very reliable. I highly recommend as a tutor to anyone who needs one in her field of expertise.
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.
