About Chiu

I have 16+ years experience teaching a wide variety of students and a number of different topics. I have taught basic computer skills at a nursery school, computer and Tai Chi classes for various senior organizations, and basic programming for teens. Although I graduated from NYU with a major in psychology, my minor was in computer science and a majority of my work has been related to computers. I provide technical support, web development, and programming services for small businesses. I am also a Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan master instructor and I have been teaching at Mount Sinai Hospital since 2001.

My approach to teaching focuses on understanding concepts instead of just memorizing "facts" that have no obvious connection to reality. This is more useful in real life and something that is understood is easier to remember without relying on rote techniques or contrived mnemonics.

I am also extremely passionate about photography and I was an avid amateur photographer for over a decade before I started doing paid photography gigs. If you can't figure out how to operate your camera, I can teach you that too.

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 been doing freelance programming since 1996. I mostly code business logic for clients in C++ or C#, but I also write games in my spare time for fun. I have experience in teaching programming in Pascal, C++, C#, Javascript, and PHP.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is a significant part of both computer programming and photography, so this is not just something abstract for me. I use math every day, far more than the average person.

Photography

After more than a decade as an avid hobbyist, I started doing professional photography in 2011. Most of my professional photography is of merchandise for websites and publication, but I primarily photograph people as a hobby. My Facebook fan page currently has over 500 likes.

I also have a smaller selection of higher quality photos on my tumblr blog.
