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. My job required me to interact closely with the underlying computer, attached hardware, the operating system (Linux) and other purchased software. All of these required use of the C programming language.

C is very close to the hardware leaving many tasks to be handled by the software. My goal is to teach you techniques that can be used to handle these tasks. I can teach you how to use C pointers, how to manage memory, and how to do bit manipulations.

I will give you confidence to use C so that when you too need to interact with other hardware or software you can to it with confidence.

I really hope that you will enjoy C programming.

C++

I have developed software for 30 years. The last 10 years I wrote predominantly in C++.

C++ has great object-oriented capabilities. It is a great language to learn object-oriented constructs.

C++ also compiles C code. With C++ you can interface directly with the machine and the operating system (Linux).

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

Java

I have used Java professionally for 10 years. I have knowledge of object oriented techniques. I have used the various Java classes to create graphics and user interfaces.

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
