About Joshua

I am a senior at Kent State University finishing my Bachelor's degree in computer science. I am a people person and enjoy seeing others succeed. I look forward to working with you to improve your computer skills.

I have an understanding of Programming concepts, data structures, Object-Oriented and Procedural programming methods, and basic database and network concepts. I am currently studying IOS app development, Operating system concepts, and Algorithm structure and design.

I use the EDGE method for teaching, where I explain the concept, demonstrate the method, guide the student through the process, and then ensure that they have learned the concept. I find that this method allows the student to learn the material as well as allowing me to ensure that they have understood what I am teaching by having them show me that they can perform the skill we were working on.

I have been tutoring students since middle school in Math, Chemistry, and Music. I have learned that a hands-on approach is best when trying to teach someone new skills. When someone shows you how to do something, you can see what they did, but when you are guided through the process yourself, you are more likely to learn the skill.

I specialize in Microsoft Office, C++, and MIPS, and spend a large amount of my spare time in the computer gaming community.

I look forward to working with you and helping you understand technology and improve how you interface with the world around you.
