About Don


Bio

Numerous successes in school and many years of work experiences as a supervisor prepared me to do well as a tutor.

At my high school, two out of three years, I ranked in the top three on the national math test.

While in college I did extremely well in subjects in which attention to detail was critical. More than one instructor requested my help in proofreading and editing mathematics or computer science textbooks.

In the workplace, I was promoted to Service Manager and given many workers...

Numerous successes in school and many years of work experiences as a supervisor prepared me to do well as a tutor.

At my high school, two out of three years, I ranked in the top three on the national math test.

While in college I did extremely well in subjects in which attention to detail was critical. More than one instructor requested my help in proofreading and editing mathematics or computer science textbooks.

In the workplace, I was promoted to Service Manager and given many workers to train. I discovered that each person had a different way of learning. If I did not get the desired result from one of these workers, I would reconsidered the teaching approach I used with them to see if it could be improved.

When I returned to college to study Computing and Software Systems, I observed that most instructors either did not have the time or the desire to adapt to the students’ needs. Wanting to help, I enrolled in a tutor training course and then worked in computer and math labs, where I could assist my classmates in many subjects. As a tutor, I am often able to provide what the instructor cannot.

I am patient and understanding, but also thorough and detail oriented. Rather than just showing the students a correct way to perform an operation, I prefer to ask the right questions that will help the student think of a way to find it.

I like seeing people reach their potential--and, if I am able in some way to help them in getting there, I find that especially fulfilling.

As part of the requirements of the University of Washington's Computing and Software Systems bachelor's degree, I completed four C++ courses and then used the programing experience to complete many projects for other courses. Additionally, I took a college course on tutoring techniques and later was paid to tutor and/or monitor various computer labs. I did very well in all of the C++ classes and was able to help others because of my training.

Computer Programming

As part of the requirements of the University of Washington's Computing and Software Systems bachelor's degree, I completed four C++ courses and then used the programming skills to complete many projects for other courses. I did very well in all of my C++ classes and had opportunities to help other students with their programming. Since then, I have also studied Java and Python and have tutored many college students to help them write code with those languages for their programming courses.

Computer Science

I have been a student in the computing and software systems bachelor's degree program at the Bothell, WA, campus of the University of Washington. In fact, I have finished all of the required classes except the 400-hour internship, for which I am currently searching. Studies for this program included computer science, computer hardware, system analysis & design, and a lot of software development--mostly using C++. I also took a college course on tutoring techniques and later was paid to tutor and/or monitor various computer labs.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Don helped my son understand difficult Math problems. He took the effort to send me additional information after the tutoring session. I really appreciate all his help.

Vinod, 4 lessons with Don

Excellent

He works around his schedule to help me! Always knows what he is talking about and shows me faster routes to get answers! With him my math grade improved greatly!

Gregory, 10 lessons with Don

Highly Recommended!

Don helped my daughter with 1.5 hrs of points she was not understanding. She was able to bring her grades up dramatically on 3 test rewrites from this experience. Don was able to help her understand key things that she just couldn't get from her high school teacher. It was great and I would highly recommend him

Friendly and knowledgeable

Don did a great job with my 7th grade son in our first lesson assessing where he is at with his Math. He was patient and kind, but also thorough. We look forward to more lessons with Don.

Don made himself available on a short notice to help my daughter prepare for a test. He stayed as long as needed and was really helpful and encouraging.

Able to connect with students

Don is able to connect with my son on higher math. He starts by assessing where he is struggling, looking at past tests/assignments to make sure they are focusing on the toughest spots first.

Christine, 5 lessons with Don

Enthusiastic about what teaches.

I am learning about Excel from Don. In a short time, we accomplished lots. I just started getting tutoring from him and feel confident I can meet my goals with his help.
