About Anissa

I am a rising senior at Vanderbilt University majoring in Computer Science. I have taken multiple courses using C++ including, but not limited to Data Structures and Operating Systems. I have been programming in courses since high school, and have a lot of experience with C+ and Java, as well as exposure to Racket, Prolog, Python to list a few. I also have often informally helped people with programming and math questions, but to be able to help more people would be incredibly fulfilling. I really love helping people understand things and personally think it is some of he most rewarding work you can do.

Every time someone I help succeeds, I feel that I have done my job well. I discovered this while being a camp instructor with 6-12 (for 1 year) and K-7 (for 3 years) at a STEM based summer camp. This allowed me to realize how much I enjoyed explaining concepts and doing hands on work with a variety of age groups. I hope that I can translate that experience into an engaging and effective learning environment for students on this platform.

I have a step-by-step teaching style. I am firm believer that the student needs the tools presented in a clear and ordered way. If the student is feeling lost or overwhelmed, then I will not necessarily tell them the correct answer but will instead guide them towards it, taking note of what they struggle with. When students understand the reason behind a method of problem solving, they can use that knowledge to answer future problems, without being confused by differences in presentation.

I have the app, so I will respond quickly during my hours. I also am very flexible and will be available usually during crunch hours.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra I is a cornerstone of higher level mathematics. My experience in those mathematics courses has taught me the importance of the fundamentals being thoroughly understood. I have helped many people informally thought the years in algebra and am ready to asset you as well.

C++

I am currently a junior pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I have taken multiple courses using C++ including, but not limited to Data Structures and Operating Systems.

Computer Programming

I am currently a junior pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I have been programming in courses since high school, and have a lot of experience with C+ and Java, as well as exposure to Racket, Prolog, Python to list a few.

Computer Science

I am currently a junior pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I have taken multiple courses in Computer Science and feel fully prepared to explain a wide variety of concepts. I have provided assistance to numerous underclassmen in various courses.

Java

I took AP Computer Science in high school and earned a 5. I have since taken several courses in Java. I personally love talking about object oriented programming (OOP).

Logic

I have taken course that directly and indirectly focus on Logic, namely General Logic and Discrete Structures. I also have to have a firm understanding of logic, to write correct algorithms. This all allows me to be able to explain this subject in a clear and applicable way.

Excellent Java Tutor

My 8th grade daughter has been stressed out and struggling in her java class at school. She's had a few sessions with Anissa now, and I can already see improvement. My daughter felt comfortable with Anissa immediately - she's very patient and communicates programming concepts in a way that my daughter just gets. She's terrific!
