Math, for a long time, has been one of my passions. Another is helping others to understand and enjoy it. I especially like tutoring students that really want to learn and have found that those taking Calculus are usually very serious about understanding it.
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.
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.
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.
