Everyone Should Be A Computer Programmer!

I love programming! Do you? Do you want to? If you're looking for a patient and thorough tutor with a passion for both computer science and education, look no further! With me you have the advantage of a tutor that has both industry experience in software engineering and recent university academic and teaching and tutoring experience. Have you tried online tutoring? It's surprisingly effective with WyzAnt. Their screen-sharing, collaborative whiteboard, chat feature and optional audio/vi... [more]


Algebra 1

My math coursework extends to Calculus II, Discrete Mathematics, Stochastic Models and Differential Equations. I have an AA, BS, MS in Computer Science, and teach computer programming at Florida Atlantic University while I work on a PhD in the same subject. Computer scientists and especially computer programmers inherently have a strong intuitive knowledge of Algebra since most programming languages are modeled after its structure.


Algebra 2


General Computer

I have been a computer user since 1981. I have been around for the birth of the personal computer, the internet, and the software engineering disciplines. I have used all kinds of personal computers and operating systems but also a variety of mainframes (IBM, HP, etc). I have a AA, BS and MS in Computer Science from Broward College in Fort Lauderdale and Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. I am about midway through a PhD in the same subject and teach & tutor computer programming to undergraduate students.

C++

I taught and tutored Introduction to Programming (C) and Foundations of Computer Science (C++) at Florida Atlantic University, including online courses. I also tutored and TA'd for Data Structures, Algorithm Analysis, Object-Oriented Software Design, and Operating Systems. My BS,MS,and PhD are in Software Engineering, as has been much of my professional career (20+ years). I specialize in teaching and tutoring brand-new programmers and helping struggling programmers. I especially enjoy helping students learn how to decompose programming assignments into manageable chunks which is a valuable approach in the professional world. You may very well end up loving programming by selecting me as your tutor!

COBOL

I first learned COBOL at Broward College in Davie, Florida in 1988. I worked at two internships using that language, and then from 1988 to 2009 in industry, exclusively using COBOL. I have coded applications and large integrated ERP systems used by Hewlett Packard, Sony, Office Depot, and nearly 800 of the top 1000 retailers in direct and e-commerce. I have two published papers about COBOL projects I have worked on.


Computer Programming

I have been a computer programmer for most of life starting as a pre-teen. After attending RPI, BC, and FAU, I went on to have a long career as a software engineer in industry. Later, I returned to university life to at a new BS, MS and PhD in Computer Science and Engineering, attending BC, Tsinghua Universityl and FAU. I have been exposed to most major computer programming languages over the year, specializing in BASIC, COBOL, SQL, XML, etc in industry and now C, C++, Java, and others in academia. I have taught and tutored both C and C++ at the collegiate level in person and online. If you're looking for someone who loves to code and can possibly help you love it too, you've found him!


Computer Science

I've been a programming for most of my life and most of my 20+ year career was a software engineer. I recently returned to university life and graduated with a Master's and PhD in Computer Science, specializing in Software Engineering, Software Evolution, and Software Reengineering. I've taken most Computer Science courses and taught or TA'd for several. If you want a tutor that lives and breathes Computer Science, you've found the right one. If you love (or hope to love) computer programming, look no further!
