General Computer

I have used a computer since the early days of High school during my college-prep math course where I programmed a commodore 64 computer to display graphics and play music. This launched my career with computer. I have used them and learned how they work while attending my Engineering classes at the University level. I continued to progress in my knowledge of computer while working in the field of Engineering for the past 10+ years. I have read the A+ certification book to prepare myself for the A+ certification test. I learned the general idea of the inter-working of a computer from building computer for friends and family: Motherboard, Memory, CPU, Heat sink, Hard drive, Video card, Power supply and Case. Along with the understanding of the hardware need to construct a Personal Computer (PC), I have developed software using the common programming languages such as C, C++, C#, PHP, VB.


Prealgebra

As a teacher and a graduate from two major Universities, i feel my educational background has prepared me to be an excellent math instructor. I have master courses in several subjects: basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, linear algebra and differential equations to name a few. At the university level I tutored math. At the college level I have taught computer related classes. Currently I have a licence to teach Computer Technology. This has enabled me to tutor Math and Computers related subjects: Including Prealgebra. Solving system of equations, graphing inequalities and working with the quadratic formula are some to the topic that are introduced to the student during the tutoring session. In addition to the above explanation of my qualification, I have worked as an Engineer using various forms of math for the past 12 years.


Precalculus

I have taken basic math to beyond linear algebra which includes pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. I have tutored at the college level and I have taught computer classes at the college level. I am well versed in the subject of precalulus: (Limits, Derivatives, Integrals advanced subjects), and Graphing function, Linear function, Concave functions , Secant line, Slope, Tangent, Finite difference, Radian, Factorial, Binomial theorem, Free variables and bound variables. I have a master degree in Computer Science and Engineering.


Java

Java was the language used for my graduate level courses for my master's in Computer Science and Engineering: Operation System. In addition to learning Java for school, I have tutored several students in Java with great success. The techniques used to introduce Java and extend the student knowledge of Java roots in the fundamental understanding of the programming language. I teach Java lessons with patience while explaining my answer to the students question with a simple but thorough explanation. Therefore I find working through examples with the students helps to convey the techniques used by Java to solve real world problems. The key to great programming in any language is excellent documentation: Program explanation, Defining input/output, Developing test cases. One must learn to develop pseudo code that highlights the nature of the program and add many useful comments.


GRE

I have been there and I have passed the Graduate Record exam (GRE). I have a master degree in Computer Science and Engineering. The GRE General Test features question types that closely reflect the kind of thinking you'll do in graduate or business school. Verbal Reasoning: Measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences and recognize relationships among words and concepts. Quantitative Reasoning: Measures problem-solving ability using basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis. Analytical Writing: Measures critical thinking and analytical writing skills, specifically your ability to articulate and support complex ideas clearly and effectively. I have also participated in countless hours of GRE preparation software.


GED

I have first hand knowledge of the struggle between home life and school. I have a close relative who struggled with their education. It has made me work that much harder. I have a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering and a full understanding of what it means for someone not to have a GED or High school Diploma. I clearly want to help those that want to help and better themselves through hard work and dedication to achieving their educational goals.


C++

I have been programming with C++ since 1997. I can recall helping a clients on their homework assignment, preparing for exams and debugging their code. I take the time to work with the client to determine why their program will not compile and run. I am able to help them with the code by showing them the syntax error or general logic error in their code. During my career as an Engineer and professional student, I have taken more than one C++ class. However the most of my knowledge has come from getting my hands dirty digging through 1k and even 10k lines of code. I have a firm understanding of C++ topics. I challenge anyone to learn more about C++ with me.


C

I have helped several clients as a tutor in C. I recall my first tutoring session with a client needing to understand how to construct a doubly linked list in C. We used several tools to share code ideas and to communicate over video chat. What an experience! I was locked in at that moment. I could not turn back, I know this was what I wanted to do with my time: Tutor and Teach other new skill sets. I have experience in programming and tutoring C. I have taken two C programming classes during my educational experience and work experience. I have taken a C programming class at the University of Akron. I have taken a class while working at Joy Global. I have experience writing C code for three different companies: Hoover, Joy Global and GE Transportation. I have programmed an assembly line application to print and test armature. I am familiar with variable, pointer, and logic statements in the use of debugging C code. I have a master's degree in Computer Science.


Computer Programming

Upon graduating as a Computer Science major I have been programming with C, C++, C#, Java, VB, PHP and, ASP.Net. I have helped numerous clients with their programming assignments and provided instruction to renew their programming skill set. During my career as an Engineer I have taken two C and one C++ programming classes. While working in the field of Engineering I have used my education to develop code and solve real world problem. Therefore I feel that I am a expert in the general Computer Programming bases on my experience at three major companies and my educational background. Discrete Math, Algorithms, Control Structures, Data Structures, Programming Language Syntax, and Various Software Tools are the fundamental elements in Computer Programming. I believe programming is a detailed plan or procedure for solving problems using a computer. More specifically, it is an unambiguous ordered sequence of computational instructions necessary to achieve such a solution.


Computer Science

I have 10 years experience in programming. I have been programming with C, C++, PHP and Java more than 4 years. I have taken two c and one C++ classes during my educational experience. I have a master's degree in Computer Science. It is my understanding that Computer Science is the study of how data and instructions are processed, stored, communicated by computing devices. A modern descendant of Applied Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, Computer Science deals with algorithms for processing data, the symbolic representation of data and instructions, the design of instruction languages for processing data, techniques for writing software that process data on a variety of computing platforms, protocols for communicating data reliably and securely across networks, the organization of data in databases of various types and scales, the emulation of human intelligence and learning through computer algorithms, statistical modeling of data in large databases to support inference of trends, and techniques for protecting the content and authenticity of data. Therefore, computer scientists are scientists and mathematicians who develop ways to process, interpret, store, communicate, and secure data. Therefore I have the experience and education to tutor the of computer science.


Logic

I find programming on a computer and designing a digital circuits to use the logic. Logic is a system or set of principles underlying the arrangements of elements in a computer or electronic device so as to perform a specified task. I have taken Logic and Computer Design Fundamentals during my graduate level courses. I have taken Digital Design Principle & Practices that included the study of combinational logic design principles during my undergraduate courses. I believe that my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and graduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering has prepared me for teaching and tutoring subject of computer logic.


PHP

PHP (PHP: hypertext preprocessor) was the language I used to develop my first dynamic website within Dreamweaver. In addition to learning PHP for personal endeavors, I have created website for several companies and organizations with great success. PHP is server-side general-purpose programming language that can be represented as a standalone code or embedded in HTML code. The language uses Object Oriented programming techniques and provided a interface to MySQL database. The techniques used to introduce PHP and extend the student knowledge of PHP roots in the fundamental understanding of the programming language. I teach PHP lessons with patience while explaining my answer to the students question with a simple but thorough explanation. Therefore I find working through examples with the students helps to convey the techniques used by Java to solve real world problems. The key to great programming in any language is excellent documentation: Program explanation, Defining input/output, Developing test cases. One must learn to develop pseudocode that highlights the nature of the program and add many useful comments.


Electrical Engineering

I have 10 years experience in Engineering. I have a undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and a master degree in Computer Science and Engineering. Therefore I have undertaken several math courses and engineering classes: Intro to Engineering, Calculus, Circuit, Differential Equations, Chemistry, English, Foreign Language, Physics, Economics, Material Sciences, Microprocessor, Operation System, Computer Architecture, and Programming languages. Furthermore my experience and education provide the perfect background to tutor someone in the areas of Engineering. My specialty is in computer programming: C, C++, PHP, C#, and Visual Basic.


Computer Engineering

I have 10 years experience in Engineering with 3 years focused on computer engineering. I understand Computer Engineering is focused on computing in all forms, from microprocessors to embedded computing devices to laptop and desktop systems to supercomputers. As such, it concerns the electrical engineering considerations of how microprocessors function, are designed, and are optimized; how data is communicated among electronic components; how integrated systems of electronic components are designed and how they operate to process instructions expressed in software; and how software is written, compiled, and optimized for specific hardware platforms. Therefore, computer engineers are electrical engineers who specialize in software design, hardware design, or systems design that integrates both. I have taken two C classes, one C++ class, OS class, microprocessor class and several of Engineering related class during my educational experience. I have a master's degree in Computer Science and Engineering.


C#

I have helped several clients during my experience as a tutor. I recall building a Question-Answer form application with the client using C# to collect and retrieve information in a database. The application also sent an emails to individuals. It used classes and windows forms. Also C# can be a programming language that is used to develop MVC (Model View Controller) style website. During my career, I have developed C# application using Visual Studio. C# is one of the programming languages designed for the Common Language Infrastructure. C# is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language. This means the language use class definitions, (inheritance and polymorphous), arrays, and structures to organize the code. The C# code contains loops, variable, keywords in it syntax. I have written TCP/IP communication protocols, database front ends and other applications using C#.
