About Ourania

I have a Computer Science B.S. degree from Polytechnic University, Brooklyn. And I lived, ate and breathed computer science from the ground up.

In all the fields I have worked in, computer programming was the basis for all the core things that ran the departments. My background was sought after because, by reverse engineering software, you can learn the subject matter and are able to take it to the next step in the evolution of a process.

I have spent many years taking students through their school subjects and making their learning fun. In most cases, it is not the student, but the presentation of the subject matter as the school environment is so much more general. I use my experiences, having struggled with the same subjects, until they were put into a different context - and I got them! It's great to see a student's face light up once they grasp what they are being taught.

Over the years, I have expanded my range to teaching adults how to use computers at a basic level, or advance their skills in Windows, and in applications such as MS Office (Excel, Access, Word, VBA, Powerpoint, and many more),

Computer Programming (from Assembler to C to VBA to Web based CSS, HTML and JavaScript). All MS Office applications (beginner to advanced using VBA).

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.

Computer Programming

I have a Computer Science B.S. degree from Polytechnic University, Brooklyn. We lived, ate and breathed computer science from the ground up...from the bits and the bytes to the advanced programming we did.

In all the fields I have worked in, computer programming was the basis for all the core things that ran the departments. My background was sought after because, by reverse engineering software, you can learn the subject matter AND are able to take it to the next step in the evolution of a process!!!

Computer Science

My background in Computer Science ranges from the theoretical to the hardcore programming from machine code & assembler to advanced languages that all software and applications are built on today!

Under my belt I have Data Structures, Computer Theory, math past all calculus to theoretical (so interesting). As well, I have almost all major Programming Languages. I have taught basic programming languages to many over the years as I enjoy passing on my knowledge.

CSS

I first learned CSS along with ASP at the very beginning of the custom web-building craze, when I was first asked to learn and use javascript and HTML.

CSS is a wonderful way to organize the formatting of web based applications and minimize time for changes to these.

Visual Basic

I learned Visual Basic on my own, upon getting my first job, when I was brought in to reverse engineer software with no documentation and no one to maintain it.

In the process, I learned to use all of the tools associated with that and the world of back end databases and spreadsheets was opened up to me.

I enjoy teaching these skills to others as they are a wonderful way to build applications across multiple businesses.
