Java seems cruel and extremely frustrating to a beginner, but I can explain why there are so many bits of fussy code, how you can remember them, and how to finally build and finish a project. Java seems more complicated than it needs to be, but it's worth learning as a first language, and learning the right way. It's precision forces good habits and it's many features expose a student to CS fundamentals. I will help you master the essentials. This is in your reach! Topics: data types, classes, objects, functions, methods, collections, keywords, debugging, design, problem-solving [more]

I taught undergraduate math and statistics courses at UC Berkeley for about six years while I was a doctoral student. During that time I had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students at very different levels. I'm just as happy helping out students who just need to pass as I am working with students who are striving for that A+. I'm passionate about math and about teaching. My favorite part of graduate school was getting the chance to work with students one-on-one. Working ... [more]

I have a over 15 years of experience working with Java professionally and otherwise. I have also taught Java/Android as an Instructor at General Assembly and mentored junior developers at the workplace over the course of my career. I started tutoring after leaving college to pursue a career as a professional software engineer. At that time I mostly tutored high school math, ACT prep, and the usage of the computer algebra program, Mathematica. After some time, I found myself mentoring a FIRST Robotics team attached to a youth program at the St. Louis Science Center. There I mentored students in [more]

I am an Oracle Certified Java SE7 Associate (earned Fall, 2016). I have been working full or part time as a programmer since the 1980's, using various languages and platforms. Most recently, I've been developing Java-based audio tools and assets for gaming. I'm a frequent contributor on StackOverflow (top 12%, over 3000 points), Java-Gaming.org (10th on "Most Awesome") list, and an author of Java tutorials ("Beginning JavaFX Game Programming for Java Programmers" has had over 100,000 hits). I strongly value creative work and value helping others acquire and hone the skills and knowledge that [more]

I tutor mainly on algebras, pre-calculus, calculus AB and BC. It is an easy job to give the correct answers directly to students. I prefer something better than that. I guide them to find the correct answers by themselves. So when they are in the test or exam, they can solve any problems. I explain to them the concepts and knowledge requirements behind each of the exercises. What they are all about. How we should tackle the problems. How we are going to break down the big problem into some p... [more]

Hi students and parents, My name is Cyrus. I am an engineer and I have years of experience teaching and tutoring all math subjects, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus and calculus, both privately and in classrooms, since I was an undergraduate in college. I am friendly and patient and I am willing to share all my knowledge and study methods with my tutees. When I am tutoring, I try to know the students and understand the way they learn so that I can adjust my method acco... [more]

** June 2017 Update: Please note that I presently work largely with students seeking extracurricular or advanced instruction in programming, robotics, and mathematics. I work with other students on a case-by-case basis. ** It's much harder to learn something when you don't care about the topic. That's why I've always approached learning as two step process. The first step is getting to the "hmm!" moment -- that moment when you realize that the particular topic you're studying really does m... [more]

I've been a full-time classroom teacher for 20 years-- English grades 7-12 and Computer Science, grades 9-12. I'm currently on sabbatical, pursuing Acting and enjoying my life, cooking and hiking. Parents and students have always appreciated my warmth, sense of humor, and attention to students' individual needs. I've taught in prestigious public and private schools in Connecticut, Maryland, and California so I am accustomed to the rigors of the academic work required of high achieving stud... [more]

I am a current student at UC Santa Cruz, majoring in Computer Science. I have taken Math Courses including Calculus and Linear Algebra, and I have taken Programming courses such as AP Java (in high school), Intro to Programming, and Data Structures. My major requires a lot math classes and programming classes, and in order to succeed in the major, I need to do well in understanding the concepts taught in these classes, which is what I have been able to do. I have passed the requirements n... [more]

I am pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from UC Berkeley. I scored a 36 on the ACT Math Section, an 800 on the SAT Math section, and placed in the top 0.1% of all American Mathematics Competition test takers with a score of 144/150. For four years I was a docent/master volunteer at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, TX. I was in charge of training the volunteers and delivering lectures in my area of specialization - astrophysics. I also worked at Mathnasium for o... [more]
