Math, Computer Science, and Music Tutor

Don't let math or computer science be intimidating! My name is Mike, and I have a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign and a master's degree in applied mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago. While attending the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, I worked as a math tutor in the Office of Minority Student Affairs, where the classes that I tutored ranged from introductory college-level to advanced undergraduate...

Algebra 1


Algebra 2


Calculus

As an undergrad engineering major as well as a graduate applied mathematics major, I had to take practically every existing calculus course (and did well in all of them). These included calculus 1, calculus 2, calculus 3, differential equations, advanced calculus, applied differential equations, and partial differential equations.

General Music

I have been involved in music for over thirty years, and currently do side work as a "semi-professional" musician (trumpet) in the Chicagoland area. Music has been a big part of my life for a long time, both while in school and now as an adult outside of school. I also have a piano/general keyboard background. I am available for general music tutoring for all levels and any age (beginners included and welcome!).


Piano

I have been involved in music for over thirty years, and currently do side work as a "semi-professional" musician (trumpet) in the Chicagoland area. As a young music student, I took keyboard lessons for eight years, and realized the benefit of having a background in piano and how much it helps your understanding and ability on other instruments as well. I believe that a piano foundation is a big asset to any musician, and my experience with keyboards of all types continues to this day. I am available for piano tutoring for beginning to intermediate students of all ages.


Trumpet

I am a "semi-professional" trumpet player in the Chicagoland area who has been playing the instrument for over 30 years. I have played in numerous bands/ensembles, including: concert bands, jazz bands and combos, pit orchestras for musicals, 18-piece big bands, brass bands, rock bands, church ensembles, brass quintets and larger brass ensembles, and folk/ethnic bands, as well as a solo instrumentalist for weddings and funerals. Additionally, I have done work in recording studios on various projects. I am available for lessons/tutoring on trumpet (and the other brass instruments) for all skill levels, including beginners.


C++

I have been working as a software engineer in the financial industry for the last fourteen years, and the systems that I have worked on have been built exclusively with the C and C++ programming languages (both of these languages are closely related to one another). These two languages have been the focus of my career thus far. At the various companies that I have worked for, I have also trained new employees on these systems. Including the years spent in college and graduate school and my corporate experience working with these languages, I have spent a long time learning and working with them, and can tutor anyone at any level.

Computer Programming

I have had numerous computer programming/computer science classes both as an aerospace engineering major as an undergrad and as a graduate student in applied mathematics. This eventually led to a career as a software engineer in the financial industry for the last fourteen years. I have also trained new employees on the systems that I have worked on at the various companies throughout my career.

I have also trained new employees on the systems that I have worked on at the various companies throughout my career.


DOS

I have worked as a software engineer in the financial industry for the past fourteen years. The majority of that time has been spent on systems using the Microsoft Windows/DOS operating system. I also have trained new employees on the complex systems that I have worked on, which were built for this operating system. Utilizing my experience from my career and courses that I took in college and graduate school, I am capable of tutoring anyone at any level on this operating system (beginners included and welcome!).


Linear Algebra

I have a bachelor's degree in engineering (aerospace) and a master's degree in applied mathematics - two fields where linear algebra is important. I studied and used this subject for both of these degrees. In graduate school, I also studied the use of computer programming to solve problems in linear algebra. I am available for tutoring this subject to anyone looking for more help.


Microsoft Access

I have been working as a software engineer in the financial industry for the last fourteen years. Throughout this time (as well as during college), I have spent a considerable amount of time studying database theory and working with databases of all kinds, including Microsoft Access. As a result, I am available to tutor this software package for anyone looking for more help with it.


Microsoft Windows

I have worked as a software engineer in the financial industry for the past fourteen years. The majority of that time has been spent on systems using the Microsoft Windows/DOS operating system. I also have trained new employees on the complex systems that I have worked on, which were built for this operating system. Utilizing my experience from my career and courses that I took in college and graduate school, I am capable of tutoring anyone at any level on this operating system (beginners included and welcome!).


Visual Basic

I have been working as a software engineer in the financial industry for the last fourteen years. Throughout this time (as well as during college), I have spent a considerable amount of time studying and using various programming languages including Visual Basic. I college, I had two semester's worth of courses in this language (both introductory and advanced courses). As a result, I am available to tutor Visual Basic for anyone looking for more help with it.


Computer Engineering

I have been working as a software engineer in the financial industry for the last fourteen years. Throughout this time, I have gained experience in all areas of the full software development life-cycle (SDLC) (gathering of requirements, design, documentation, implementation, testing, deployment, and maintenance), all of which are key aspects of software engineering. I have also trained new employees on the complex systems that I have worked on at the various companies during my career.


Mathematica

I was first exposed to Mathematica as an aerospace engineering undergrad student at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, where this software package was very prevalent on campus (due to its creator, Wolfram Research, being located in Champaign, IL). After working with both Mathematica's built-in functionality as well using it as a programming language, I realized how powerful it really is, and made it an integral part of my undergraduate and graduate degree (applied mathematics) programs.
