About Preston


Bio

I am a current PhD student at the University of Pittsburgh. I completed my bachelor’s degree in computer engineering at Pitt in the spring of 2022. In my undergraduate career, I took college level courses in Calculus, Linear Algebra and several Electrical and Computer Engineering topics including programming. I was also part of several project-based courses that involved detailed research and software development in Python and C++.

I am passionate about teaching, and I hope to gain more...

I am a current PhD student at the University of Pittsburgh. I completed my bachelor’s degree in computer engineering at Pitt in the spring of 2022. In my undergraduate career, I took college level courses in Calculus, Linear Algebra and several Electrical and Computer Engineering topics including programming. I was also part of several project-based courses that involved detailed research and software development in Python and C++.

I am passionate about teaching, and I hope to gain more experience here on Wyzant. I provided lots of help to my fellow students in my own classes, so I already have a good skillset when it comes to tutoring. I was employed as an undergraduate teaching assistant for 4 semesters, so I have tutoring skills already. I worked as a teaching assistant in a programming course, a digital design course, and a signals analysis course.

As a tutor, I am careful to let my students figure out solutions on their own without giving away the answer. I strive to show my students the logical paths and insights needed to success rather than checklists or formulas with no explanation. I believe that learning complex topics is best approached by looking at why they work rather than rote learning. Don't hesitate to reach out and start working with me! I'd love to work with you online or in person.

excellent tutor !

Preston taught my 17 years old son and his method was so good that he was able to catch up to last assignment and finish the next. Couldn’t be happier! We will be working with Preston moving forward :)

5 Stars, explains things thoroughly and explains things better than my professor!

When I learn new c++ material I need things to be explained very slowly, and I am grateful that Preston was patient with me and helped me every step of the way through my assignment.
