About Michael

I am currently a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University studying Information Systems and Management and have a BSc in Computer Information System from Babcock University.

I have over two years IT industry experience and have been involved in the development of various enterprise and web applications. I am very passionate about learning and passing such knowledge onto other people in the simplest way possible.

I have the relevant skills and experience needed to effectively teach computer and maths related courses. You can contact me if you need a PHP, Java, MySQL, algebra or statistics tutor.

I believe that with the right mind set and a good level of dedication, all can be learnt. I also believe there are no stupid questions. My job as your tutor will be to help you learn easily and to help you confidently do meaningful things with whatever you learn.

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.

Computer Programming

While in college, I took a number of programming classes including Java and PHP. I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer(SCJP), and have been working with both PHP and Java for over 7 years now.

I have also had work experience with PHP at companies where I worked for over 3 years, designing new modules and features.

Most of my class work at Graduate school also required the use of Java, and I excelled in these classes.

PHP

While in college, I took time to learn PHP and have been working with it for over 7 years now. I also took PHP classes in college and taught students who were struggling with it.

I have worked with a good number of MVC frameworks including Laravel, CodeIgniter and Zend. I have a good understanding of how PHP works and how it is used in combination with javascript, HTML and MySQL to build useful applications.

Web Design

While in college, I took time to learn PHP and have been working with it for over 7 years now. I also took PHP classes in college and taught students that were struggling with it.
I use PHP in combination with HTML, JavaScript and MySQL to design useful web applications and sites.
