I consider my hobby to also be my passion which is why sports was not just an extracurricular activity but also shaped me into the responsible, industrious, and self-driven student athlete that I am today. I had consistently been on the honor role, as I pursued and achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer science focused on Information systems at the Johnson C Smith University. I have always been a team player who is willing to accept challenges and is very reliable at completing tasks and ensuring my teammates achieve the same. I have previously worked at the Upward bound program where I tutored and guided students in various subject areas, which motivated me to further my tutoring experiences. I believe getting help from someone who can be considered a peer makes understanding the content much easier. As a Computer Science, major I particularly enjoyed learning Internet Programming so its a topic I enjoy teaching. I also have knowledge in subject areas such as Excel, Office, Java, SQL, CSS and general Computer Science topics. I am a strong believer in the statement its never too late to be what you want to be and I believe everyone can learn with the patience and proper content delivery.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I am a strong believer in repetition of the content, patience, and being creative in delivery. This is because individuals learn at different speeds and may prefer different methods.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I would point that student to material which can improve their knowledge, and also encourage them to form study habits.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would remind them of their goals and dreams and the potential they have from hard work.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

If a student has difficulty, I would try to break down the content. I would also try to relate it to something they would enjoy or are more likely to grasp an understanding of.
