About Erich

My name is Erich and I'm an applied Computer Science Major. While I do not have professional experience tutoring I have spent a lot of time tutoring my peers and teaching.

To me the best part about teaching is watching the light-bulb turn on as a student begins to conceptually understand a topic. My goal as a tutor is not to improve grades through rote memorization. Instead I prefer to focus on concepts, every subject is built on concepts and understanding them allows students to extrapolate their knowledge to other subjects and facilitate better learning everywhere.

To roughly quote John Locke in Human Understanding: "Abstraction is the basis for all general ideas."

Mathematics has been one of my strongest topics, but only because I have struggled with it. Often the best teachers are the worst students, this is because they have had every incorrect interpretation and made every mistake. They've been there and done that and they understand that sometimes Math can just be HARD. It takes time for some ideas to click.

Mathematics was not always an easy subject for me but I persevered and contributed the overtime hours that I needed to so that I could perform well. I understand what needs to be done to learn concepts and I understand that it takes time.

If you feel that I am a good match as a tutor please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I can coordinate around times that work best for you both on-line and off.

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.

C

I am a Computer Science Student at Oregon State University. In my CS261 class I implemented binary search trees, skip lists, heaps, and hash tables among other data structures. I took tests and submitted assignments. I received an A grade for an approximately 95% overall score. On all tests I was in the top 1% of my class. Proof and source code can be submitted in zip format or through a link to Github upon request.

Linux

I'm an applied Computer Science Major. 12+ months of using Linux-based Operating Systems. Have taken Op. Sys. class on Unix in which I developed a trivial shell and implemented some localhost socket encryption and decryption daemons.

In which I wrote this mess:

void encrypt(char *p, char *key){
//encrypt that shizz
for(; *p; key++, p++)
*p = (*p= ((*p-' '?*p-'A':26)+(*key-' '?*key-'A':26)+27)%27 ) != 26? *p + 'A':' ';
}

which uses a given key for a one-time pad and some crazy pointer and ternary operation.
