About Sar


Bio

Hi! I believe that ANYONE can do computer science, and I love helping people figure out how. My teaching style is "N+1". First, we'll figure out where your level is, together, and then we'll add one new thing. I've been in post-secondary education for 8+ years, and love teaching students HOW to learn: How to break daunting assignments can be broken down into manageable parts, and how to decode computer algorithms into everyday concepts you already know. Also, I'm super patient, and happy...

Hi! I believe that ANYONE can do computer science, and I love helping people figure out how. My teaching style is "N+1". First, we'll figure out where your level is, together, and then we'll add one new thing. I've been in post-secondary education for 8+ years, and love teaching students HOW to learn: How to break daunting assignments can be broken down into manageable parts, and how to decode computer algorithms into everyday concepts you already know. Also, I'm super patient, and happy to explain something as many times as you need. If something isn't working, we'll try something else. I never, ever want my students to feel dumb for not getting something right away.

IMPORTANT: I will never give you the answer to a question directly. I will help you break down the problem, work through the steps, and arrive at an answer yourself. I will help you check your answers. But if you're looking to hire someone to do your work for you, I am not the right fit.

I just completed my MA in Linguistics from the University of Hawai'i. My specialization is endangered language documentation and revitalization, and I've studied syntax, phonetics, phonology, morphology, and typology. I'd also be happy to provide advice on pursuing a master's degree or a career in linguistics.

During my Bachelor's program at Virginia Tech, I was voted by students as the Best Undergraduate Teaching Assistant in the Computer Science Department. Professionally, I've worked as systems networking engineer and written code in Java, C, Javascript, Python, bash, and lots more. I've also worked as a Systems Administrator and know a fair bit about Linux/UNIX provisioning, administration, and use.

If you're interested, please don't hesitate to reach out! If you think you might be interested, but have questions about me as a tutor, reach out! Or just schedule a lesson.
