About Jonathan

Hi, my name is Jonathan! I am an experienced programmer that is ready and available to teach students and adults alike.

I've been programming since the 10th grade (that's 10 years, now) and would love to assist you in reaching the proficiency you desire. An extra benefit that you will get through me is that I have worked with large companies, as well as startups and small businesses, so you can learn a few extra tricks to get that extra edge. Besides that, any classes you have will be surely passed with the grade you desire, as long as you put in the work for it.

I have tutored people before and enjoy seeing people feel good about the same thing that was stressing them out a few weeks ago. I will almost always make sure to take an approach that actually teaches you the material, rather than just telling you the answers. Anyone can just look up answers online or in a book, but it's really the way you think about it that will allow you to excel in all aspects. Each student's case is unique, but almost all situations can be improved with different strategies.

My bachelor's degree in Software Engineering allows me to understand the problems that you may be stuck on in a deeper way, as well, so I will be bringing that experience to you so that you can learn on a higher level. Understanding the underlying principles beneath something is often one of the ways that a person can come to grasp how to solve a problem.

Just know that you can break through whatever barriers you are stuck at now and I will help you do that! Remember that with learning, as with most things, you often get out the effort that you put in.

In addition to what is listed in my tutoring skills section, I am also skilled in CSS, Node.js, ReactJS, and jQuery, among other things which weren't on the list of tutoring subjects available. If you think that there may be another subject that I can tutor you in, that is not in the standard set of categories, just feel free to ask!

I can't wait to help you with your particular sticking points. I will talk to you soon!

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 obtained a degree in Software Engineering and have done this as my job for almost 4 years. Every job title I have had has involved computer programming to a great degree. I passed the Java and HTML tests.

Java

I studied Java in college and used Java as a Cloud Engineer at AT&T.

JavaScript

I know how to computer program and graduated with a degree in software engineering. In addition to knowing how to properly code from the above, I worked at American Express as both a front end engineer and back end node.js coder for almost a year and a half.

Linux

I have worked in several Linux environments as well as Macs, which are Unix-based. I still currently manage Linux servers in my side projects and also used it heavily at a computer forensics company I worked for in college. I have also dug into the Linux OS that backs certain Android tablets and changed different aspects of it. In addition, it was used in some classes in college.

PHP

I coded the entire PHP back-end of a portion of a site I was building in my computer forensics job in college. I also used PHP at a start-up I worked at, as well as on a live streaming project I built. The standard computer programming skills that I have also apply here, as they apply to most languages.

UNIX

Unix is extremely similar to Linux, so I know much of it from that. Some differences between Linux and Unix are that Unix has slightly different file locations for certain things, occasionally. In addition, certain Unix distributions are less portable across different types of hardware. There is also the fact that Unix often gets certain tools after Linux gets them. MacOS, which I have used for development at American Express, is built on Unix.

Jonathan was able to help me solve the problems I was having with my assignments, and was also able to explain the solutions so that I could understand them.
