From an early age, I have always found an interest in computers. Whether it was watching my brother play video games, or tinker around with the terminal, I knew that my future would involve computers. When I took more computer classes, I learned that much of computer programming wasn't making video games, but mainly solving math problems. After years of disliking math, programming essentially brought out my inner math nerd and I enjoy solving problems and am more than glad to help you with any problems you may have.
Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I would rather take all the time in the world for my students to understand material versus rushing through it for completeness and credit.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would get to know my student and figure out what they may want to study in school or pursue in a career. From there, I would try to apply the subject I'm helping them with to that career path.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I would help a student become independent by walking them through a problem, then I'd have them solve a similar problem on their own.
