About Nikesh

About Me:

I graduated summa cum laude (3.85/4 GPA) from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Management Information Systems and Biomedical Sciences. My professional experience includes working SAP (2 years) and I currently work for Ernst and Young (3 years to date) in Banking Compliance and Technology for Fortune 500 clients in the New York area. My professional experience includes database design and development, web application and software development, banking compliance, requirements development and writing, and many number of technical skills.

My Tutoring Subjects/Experience:

I specialize in tutoring Microsoft Access, VBA for Office, Database Design, PHP, XML, jQuery, Javascript, HTML, SQL (Oracle PL/SQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, SQLite), and Management/General Business. My database experience includes database design and integration with PHP, Python, VB, and Java (basic integration) I have been working with these languages since high school and I have both learned the subjects through college courses and through my professional daytime job as a consultant. I have also developed full stack PHP applications which integrate PHP, HTML, Javascript, AJAX, Databases, and Search Engine Technologies.

I have tutored many students in college, through other tutoring services, my colleagues at work, and family and friends.

Why I Tutor:

I have found it very rewarding to help others succeed in technical and complex subjects. My approach to tutoring is hands on and I like to design relevant examples that make sense to help you achieve a breakthrough in understanding the subject. I have seen classroom examples that make no practical sense and sometimes make concepts more confusing. I like to explain things in plain English and use visual examples to really help drive the concept home. I like to do this through hands on exercises, customized lesson plans, and preparing for easy and difficult problems that may be encountered on a test. I also try to bring in practical applications through my personal experience and client problems I have solved as a consultant. These techniques have helped me enable others to succeed.

I am generally available in the evenings after 6 pm and on weekends all-day. I prefer to meet online. I can meet in person within the Manhattan area on some weekends. Please schedule this with me in advance.

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.

JavaScript

I have professionally developed many web applications with rich Javascript user experiences using jQuery and other modern Javascript frameworks including custom code and libraries for custom user-based functionality.

I have utilized Javascript with PHP, Web Services, and AJAX based applications. I have previously tutored other students in this area.

My Javascript experience also includes the basics of server-side programming with Node.js and headless testing frameworks (Phantom.js).

Microsoft Access

I professionally develop Microsoft Access databases with forms, reports, VBA, and integration with SharePoint and Microsoft Excel for many of my projects at Fortune 500 banking clients. Previous projects have included: (1) importing and transforming data in Access to generate daily change reports, (2) generating customized project plans in Excel based on data in Access, (3) building a database for analysis.

My experience with Access includes developing and creating tables, integration and development with VBA, developing complex forms with file uploads and integration with other data sources, and developing reports.

PHP

I have developed numerous PHP database driven applications using object oriented and procedural (script-style) like language with PHP. I have used PHP in conjunction with Apache Solr (search technology), MySQL, Oracle, and Microsoft Access. Additional PHP packages include Zend Framework and Propel ORM.

My professional experience includes developing a mobile based application for an innovation festival with a target audience of 15,000 users and a people-finder platform which was launched at a Fortune 500 business software maker. I have also developed numerous smaller applications for one-time or short-term use (PDF generation from database, online forms/applications to collect data, web scraping)

I have previously tutored a few students in this area and the experience and insight I bring is from practical business experience and programming challenges that I have previously solved that are encountered often when developing PHP applications.

SQL

I have previously and currently tutored college level database and professionally work with MySQL, Oracle, and Microsoft Access. Includes drafting entity diagrams and data quality / data transformations.

I have developed end-to-end database driven applications.

Many of these projects have been for higher education and banking institutions.

Visual Basic

I professionally work with and develop VBA in Microsoft Excel, Access, and Word applications as a consultant for Fortune 500 banks.

I have previously tutored in students on how to develop VBA macros for use in Excel, Access, and VBA.

When tutoring VBA I use practical examples from work that I have previously done and provide advanced tips and tricks that go beyond the book and classroom.
