About Jonathan


Bio

I have tutored computer science (coding/programming), math, and general computer skills for over 4 years. My students have ranged in age from 8 to over 80! If you're looking to learn C++ or Java (the language of AP Computer Science), I'm your guy. If you're overwhelmed by the computer at work, and need training with Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook, turn to me. For math help (from third-grade math up to Algebra II/Trigonometry), heeere's Jonny!

I have tutored computer science (coding/programming), math, and general computer skills for over 4 years. My students have ranged in age from 8 to over 80! If you're looking to learn C++ or Java (the language of AP Computer Science), I'm your guy. If you're overwhelmed by the computer at work, and need training with Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook, turn to me. For math help (from third-grade math up to Algebra II/Trigonometry), heeere's Jonny!

The above subjects are my specialties, but I am not limited to just those. I would describe my educational philosophy as "traditionalist" and "focused on the fundamentals". If you want "fluff", look elsewhere, but if you want to learn, or if you want your child to learn, message me. You can only learn why something like long division works, if you know how to do it well, in the first place.

My qualifications:
- I have a B. S. in computer science from NYU's engineering school.
- Computer science and math were my two best subjects in school.
- I have over 13 years of programming experience!
- Over the years, I have written many of my own computer science and math lesson plans, but can also adapt my teaching methods to students' textbooks and school curricula.

C,

C

I have over 10 years of overall programming experience, in many languages, including C++. As a C++ programmer, I am qualified to teach C, because C++ is a superset of C, and I first learned C++ "the C way". I am one of the few people on Earth who understands how pointers work!
C++,

C++

I have over 12 years of experience programming in C++. I first learned how to program in this language, and have built many games in it. Out of all of the programming languages I know, C++ is the one where I have the most depth of experience. Also, most of my books use examples written in C++. Finally, in college, I used C++ the most, by far, in completing my programming assignments.
Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

I have over 12 years of total programming experience in a variety of programming languages, such as C++ and Java. My experience includes many independent/hobby projects, 2 classes in high school, my 4 years at NYU-Poly (as a computer science major), and some time programming professionally.
Computer Science,

Computer Science

Computer science is basically computer programming. However, there is more of a theoretical background here, which I do have, thanks to my education. My programming background: I have over 11 years of total programming experience in a variety of programming languages, such as C++ and Java. My experience includes many independent/hobby projects, 2 classes in high school, my 4 years at NYU-Poly (as a computer science major), and some time programming professionally.
DOS,

DOS

I am knowledgeable about MS-DOS, the ancient PC operating system! If you want to learn the ancient art of controlling a computer via the command line, I am the tutor for you! I own several DOS manuals, know many DOS commands, know how to use DOS Shell, the MS-DOS Editor, some QBASIC, C/C++, and am familiar with other DOS programs. I know how to install Windows (several versions) from the command line, partition and format a hard disk, you name it! Best of all, I actually USE MS-DOS, via DOSBox, often!
Java,

Java

I have several years of experience programming in Java. It is an object-oriented programming language, which is similar to C++ (another language I know). Out of all of the programming languages I know, Java is the one I have the most experience teaching, due to its role in the AP Computer Science curriculum. Finally, I have written hundreds of pages of my own Java lessons, including 12 lessons on GUI programming.
Microsoft Outlook,

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook can be a nasty program, but I know how to use it, and can help you tame it. Whether you're swamped with 10,000 e-mails that you need to organize, or whether you need to format your e-mails, to make them look nice, I've got you covered. I also know the nuances of searching for lost messages, and keyboard shortcuts that can help you be more productive.
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

I am knowledgeable in the following versions of Windows: 3.1 (and 3.11, etc.), 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Whether you need help using the internet on your PC, finding and organizing your files, fixing your computer's problems, or even developing your own software (programming), I am a Windows expert! I am familiar with Office (and other Microsoft software), I know how to install Windows and other software, and, if you're brave enough, I can teach you how to use the command line to your advantage. As a lifelong Windows user, who has broken and fixed his computers MANY times, I bring around TWO DECADES of Windows experience to the table!
