About Joseph


Bio

I have been computer programming with a focus on the web for over 14 years and have learned the ins and outs of Java, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby and many other languages in that time. I have done work for Roadway, Goodyear and FirstEnergy Corp. on their core web applications and back end processes. I know how to build real applications for the real world.

I have been computer programming with a focus on the web for over 14 years and have learned the ins and outs of Java, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby and many other languages in that time. I have done work for Roadway, Goodyear and FirstEnergy Corp. on their core web applications and back end processes. I know how to build real applications for the real world.

Now that the "impressive" stuff is out of the way, I'm also very personable, more so than most of the other programmers I know. I've taught a number of classes at each place I've worked and have a love for sharing my knowledge. I have spoken at conferences and also at personal one on one classes with children to teach them computers and programming. I am mostly interested in teaching my students real-world programming skills and how to navigate the professional world of application development. No last minute exam cramming sessions or hiring me to do your homework, please.

Extremely relevant and helpful computer programming teacher

I am in a computer science program and am pursuing the traditional course route (java, data structures, compilers, operating systems, ect). I recognized that even though I was learning and completing my classes successfully, I didn't quite fully understand the concepts we were learning - enough to really elaborate and write good code from what I learned. I pursued the traditional route of researching via youTube, and other online monthly subscription sites such as Lynda.com/TutVids to name a few. I decided to pursue the face to face tutoring option from the frustrating hours of researching my own questions, when I realized it would be much easier to ask someone face to face. Deciding to make a change to adding Joe as a study tool has cut the amount of time it took me to comprehend my assignments down from 20 hours per week to 8 hours! Joe is an absolute professional who knows object oriented programming because he has years and years of development, testing, and deployment experience. I don't take that sentence lightly - so read his bio. He knows the web space front and back end (javascript, html, css to ruby, php, python). He knows java because has used in his own programs for somethings, and has coded commercially with all these languages. My first session with Joe I realized this value versus only working with professor/academic route. I remember it was one of my first simple data structures problems, where I had to use a singly Linked List - and code a simple gui interface. He started by drawing a picture, because he's very visual, and then proceeded to mock up a pseudo and classes that would be needed if he was solving the problem. Needless to say the errors I was getting would have taking me 4 hours to figure out while researching on my own, when Joe fixed my error with literally one glance. Simply amazing. My goal is to be a software engineer in the web space, ideally via ruby on rails which I am working on based upon help with Joe. I have studied an average of 1.5-2 hours per week with Joe for some time now and he has helped me understand the industry, and narrow down where I will fit inside of it. We meet at a local restaurant that is convenient for me, chat initially about industry or anything, and then analyze code. Having Joe along my way to becoming a junior programmer is making the path a lot more realistic and less frustrating, and I recommend him and only him to anyone who is serious about computer science.

Joe is a real pro

When I started searching for a PHP tutor I wanted to find a knowledgeable professional who can communicate on my level with the ability to make abstract concepts concrete. More than just learning the language, I was very interested in working with someone who can explain the thought process behind the problem solving. I didn't even care if the person was local since we can easily communicate via Skype. Joe met my criteria and then some. He has tons of real-world experience and is an excellent communicator. He makes complex concepts easy to understand and explains it in real-world terms. And he lives in my area. A bonus.
