About Ron


Bio

Hi, I'm Ron. Years ago I taught college level classes in Geology and Engineering and have since worked in industry, most recently with a gaming company designing and leading a team of engineers and artists creating a variety of poker and keno games. As such, I know what is important to study and know how to make the most out of limited time to learn a new subject. I've spent years with new engineers, programmers, mathematicians, and artists taking concepts from inception, through prototyping,...

Hi, I'm Ron. Years ago I taught college level classes in Geology and Engineering and have since worked in industry, most recently with a gaming company designing and leading a team of engineers and artists creating a variety of poker and keno games. As such, I know what is important to study and know how to make the most out of limited time to learn a new subject. I've spent years with new engineers, programmers, mathematicians, and artists taking concepts from inception, through prototyping, design, and implementation and release to the public.

I am good at bringing complex topics down to a level so that most can understand not only the methodology and the "why" of the concept, but also the practical implementation of those concepts. I believe the only way to truly learn is to see how things are used in real life, and on real problems. I will go the extra mile to help anyone get over the hurdles of subjects which may temporarily cause you difficulty. However, to do this, I would also expect you to let me know in advance those particular areas for which you need help. This requires good communication and a willingness on your part to share where you are and what you need to accomplish. I can help help you only if you help me understand your stumbling blocks.

I have Masters degrees from the University of Nevada, Reno and Colorado State University and a Geology degree from SUNY Buffalo. Algebra 1 & 2 are varied subjects, some of which I have not formally taught. However, I have used most of these subjects in my work for years in a variety of ways. I can quickly come up with a plan to meet your needs to help you master these subjects and move on to understanding the theory, and most importantly, the practical applications of these areas.

There are two aspects to learning how to code and proper programming. The first, and most important, is to learn how to think like a programmer. How to take a complex task and break it into smaller, more digestible pieces. Most importantly, how to build on you previous know

Excellent tutor

Ron made some concepts that seemed abstract and complex very clear. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone struggling with programming. We worked on p5. Projects

Knowledgeable tutor

We worked through building the necessary functions to manipulate the word string in the assigned ways. We then took those functions and created an Object oriented Python project. Ron explained in great detail the entire way what we were doing and why.
