Boyd helped me with my college assignment on Java, i was able to understand and complete my work. He was patient and gave me detailed instructions so i was able to work on my own. Thank you Boyd!
Boyd has helped me with Java Programing. He took the time and explained to me in a way I understood. He is patient and relates to his students. I would definitely recommend him to others.
I am currently taking Park University's CS219 Java Programming. The class is on line and it is an 8 week compressed class. When I saw the first week's assignment my heart sank! I went on WyzAnt and Boyd showed up. He was very quick to respond unlike some other people. I needed a tutor now, not next week. His teaching style is awesome, he has an extensive background from teaching Java. It is very clear that he takes the time to research on what we will be talking about. This course requires preparation even on the tutor's side. Boyd meets me on time and is well prepared for each lesson. If it wasn't for him, I would have already washed out of this difficult course.
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.
