About Monte

I'm a professional software developer. I have 10 years experience with computers, math, and technical communication. In addition, I have taught courses at ITT technical institute and tutored students in college computer science classes. And I've gotten students through some pretty difficult courses, so I'm sure I can get you through yours.

I have over 10 years experience in the computer programming industry, mostly related to ecommerce and web applications. If your studying programming or web design, your class will probably just teach you how to write code. I can teach you the design patterns, critical thinking, and habits that will make you a great engineer. If your studying mathematics, I can help you through the homework problems, but I can also help you understand how they relate to the real fields of engineering, physics, etc.

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 over 10 years experience in software development. This includes experience in C, Java and Javascript. I have also both tutored and taught college courses in Java and web design. The students I tutored in college improved their grades and test scores significantly. I am very good at explaining concepts like pointers, OOP, encapsulation and modularity, etc..

Chess

I am very good at chess. I have extensive experience teaching children how to play chess. I have even developed a series of drills to teach certain strategic concepts. I am very patient with children.

Computer Programming

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and 10+ years real-world experience in the software industry. I have dealt extensively with many languages, including C++, Java, Javascript, XML, Ruby etc. I have also both taught and tutored high level college courses in computer programming and web design.

Computer Science

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science. I have over 10 years' experience in the computer programming industry, mostly related to ecommerce and web applications. I have extensive experience with web technologies including JQuery, Angular, and CSS3. This includes my most recent experience with Software Technology Group, a top-tier consulting company in Salt Lake City. I have used Spring MVC, Hibernate, JPA, and GIT. I also passed the Oracle SQL fundamentals exam and the Oracle Java 1.7 exam. In my spare time, I have recently been studying server configuration, Hibernate, Maven, Angular and SQL.

Elementary Math

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science, which included studies in algebra, calculus, calculus 2, physics, physics 2, algorithms, linear algebra etc.

English

I got straight A's in college in both English and technical writing. I have excellent grammar, reading and writing skills.

Football

I was in football for 4 years in high school. I was in football for 3 years in junior high. I have practiced passing and catching with many of my nephews. I am very patient and good at explaining things.

Java

I have over 10 years real-world experience in Java and associated technologies. In addition, I have both taught and tutored for college courses in Java. I have worked with JDBC, J2EE, JDBC, JPA, JSP and many other java technologies. I also recently passed the Oracle Java 1.7 certification exam.

JavaScript

I have 10 years experience in web applications development. This includes extensive experience with Javascript and associated technologies. I have also taught courses in web design at ITT technical institute. I have also worked with many javascript libraries such as Angular, JQuery, etc..

Linux

I have over 10 years experience in software development. This includes experience dealing with Unix based operating systems such as Linux, Ubuntu, etc.. I have also both tutored and taught college courses which required the use of a Unix command line. I am very good at explaining difficult concepts. I also recently installed my own Ubuntu operating system and built a web server and database into it. (Ubuntu is a unix variant, very similar to Linux)

Microsoft Access

I have extensive experience with relational databases. I have designed and used databases for many years. I passed a 400 level database course using Access in college. I also recently passed the Oracle SQL fundamentals exam.

I have also both tutored and taught college courses in database theory and computer science. I am very good at explaining difficult concepts. I also recently passed the Oracle SQL fundamentals exam.

Pascal

It's been a while but I studied pascal code in high school. If someone, for some strange reason, needs tutoring in pascal, I'm sure I can remember it with a couple days of study. So I can tutor in Pascal - I'll just need a few days notice.

Study Skills

I have tutored students in high level college courses in computer science. I have helped many of my nephews and nieces with their studies. I have done volunteer work at elementary schools where I helped troubled students get their homework done. I am very patient with children.
