About Keyona

Hello Everyone,

I am a developer with a dual Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and Information Technology. I can program in Java, Java Script, Visual Basic, Perl, Kornshell and Bash. I have been in programming competitions and developed Android applications. I graduated with manga cum laude honors with Top Computer Science student awards. Most importantly, I have been tutoring for over 8 years and understand what it takes to be an effective tutor. I understand that people learn differently, and I succeed in conveying essential programming concepts in an easy to understand format and in a way that is retainable for the student.

Helping my students understand coding is my highest priority!

I also offer online lessons.

Creating installation, monitoring and other types of automation scripts using Perl, Korn Shell or Bash scripts.

Developing a Java based API to retrieve information from a database, format it and return the data via a web browser.

Programming an Android Application based on information about La Salle University.

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile!
