Your new Computer Science Tutor!
I have worked as a tutor and teacher for many years and in many different subjects! I originally started by tutoring my best friend in high school trigonometry and brought him up from a D grade to finishing with a B+! In college, I worked as a Math and Computer Science tutor for the univerity for 2 years, covering structured / object-oriented programming (C, C++, Java), databases (SQL), calculus, and probability/statistics. As one of the founding members of the university's Linux User Group,...
I have worked as a tutor and teacher for many years and in many different subjects! I originally started by tutoring my best friend in high school trigonometry and brought him up from a D grade to finishing with a B+! In college, I worked as a Math and Computer Science tutor for the univerity for 2 years, covering structured / object-oriented programming (C, C++, Java), databases (SQL), calculus, and probability/statistics. As one of the founding members of the university's Linux User Group, I also taught many seminars and workshops about Linux and Open Source Software (including installation, kernel compilation, shell scripting, Python, etc). I graduated magna cum laude with a joint degree from Rutgers University and NJIT.
After working as a Software Developer and IT Security Associate (for PricewaterhouseCoopers) for a few years, I then had the opportunity to teach English in Japan for 3 years! The most valuable thing I learned was that if the lessons are fun, the learning will happen automatically! I was able to successfully apply that principle to teach small groups of children as young as 3 years old, all the way up to 1-on-1 sessions with adults. One of my lessons was even recorded and used as a training video for newly-hired Assistant Language Teachers!
I really do love teaching people new things, no matter the subject! There is a level of joy that comes to both parties when a student has that "aha-moment" and fully understands what is being taught. And it should come as no surprise that I fully embrace the age-old proverb, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." So if any of the subjects I'm teaching interest you, I will do my best to tutor you in a way that is FUN, practical, and easy to understand. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to message me! And if you don't have any questions, then go ahead and sign up and let's get learning!
Beyond Excellent Tutor
I am currently in a Python programming continuing education certificate from eCornell and Ted spent our session helping me through some advanced (to me) image processing functions for a homework assignment. His decades of professional computer science and coding experience, coupled with his extraordinary interpersonal and teaching skills, resulted in me learning more about Python in our two hour session than I have learned on my own in the last few months. Additionally, Ted did not just give me the answers... he took the time to really answer my questions as we walked through the homework assignment and socratically helped me find the path to the answer as a true master teacher does. I will absolutely be getting on Ted's schedule again for all my coding tutoring needs.Davis, 4 lessons with Ted
Super knowledgeable and thorough
Ted is the best teacher. He spends time explaining everything so that you can really learn from him. He is patient and very knowledgeable about coding! I highly recommend him!Logan, 5 lessons with Ted
Knowledgeable, patient, and great tutor
Ted is an amazing tutor that has helped me with many difficult aspects of Python and Java. He provided great insight on not only the "how" but also placed great emphasis on the "WHY" so that I would really understand why something works from its core. He took the time to explain these detailed concepts to me in a way that was very understandable and practical. He is extremely knowledgeable about Python and programming in general and I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to excel at both.Michael, 41 lessons with Ted
Great teacher! He knows his stuff.
Ted helped me out a lot this semester with learning the Django framework. With his help I was able to understand how to implement a website using the Django framework.Zachary, 4 lessons with Ted
Best tutor I've ever had
Finding a cybersecurity tutor was incredibly difficult and I am so glad to found him. Ted's expertise in python and his background in security helped me write secure code. He explained things very clearly. Coming from a non-tech background just learning C++ he was able to help me learn python and make that bridge between the two languages. Highly recommendCynthia, 68 lessons with Ted
Ted is the best!!
Ted is so kind, patient, and extremely helpful! I would recommend him for anyone in need of a little extra help with programming. He helped break down large & difficult concepts and make them easier to understand. Ted is extremely intelligent and I am extremely satisfied with this tutoring experience.Bari, 2 lessons with Ted
Knowledgeable, patient and very organized
I was very lucky I met Ted on Wyznat to help me understand some python code. He is very knowledgeable, organized and patient. He starts with what you already know and builds on it. He really goes out of his way to make sure you understand the issue at hand!!! Thanks so much Ted. It is a pleasure working with you!!!Rasha, 2 lessons with Ted
Extremely Knowledgeable and Helpful
Ted is extremely knowledgeable in the field of computer science and helped explain concepts of Python that were not covered in my classes. He challenges you to think in different ways and makes sure you understand the concept fully. He is very enthusiastic and makes sessions fun and not boring at all. One of the best tutors I've ever had I highly recommend!Kelly, 15 lessons with Ted
Within 60 minutes, Ted was able to understand my Python project, diagnose my challenges, fix them, and teach how to avoid these obstacles in the future. Highly recommended!Donald, 2 lessons with Ted
Detail-oriented with both breadth and depth
Ted helped me work on a personal coding project, and he was able to immediately answer even very specific conceptual questions of mine as well as break down larger topics into bite-sized chunks. I would highly recommend Ted to anybody, and I will definitely seek him out in the future if and when the need arises.Rahul, 2 lessons with Ted
