Austin, TX Software Engineer with extensive college level math experience tutoring Algebra.

Methodology

My teaching method focuses on an interactive approach in which concepts are taught in steps with mnemonics and strategies for success, feedback is gathered from the student, and examples are solved by the student to measure understanding and ability. I plan my lessons using the goals and/or class expectations of my students, and teach in a fluid manner expanding on concepts which appear difficult, and reducing focus on concepts that the student masters quickly. That being said, repetition is key, supplementary practice will be provided covering all concepts, so that none become left out.

Background

I am a UT Alumni with a BS in Computer Science, over 30+ hours math credit, 80+ hours credit in courses heavy in mathematics. I've been tutoring for about 2 years, and improved the math skills of students from the middle school level up to college.

Shane's resume

EXPERIENCE

Core Curriculum Tutor, Freelance (January 2020 - October 2020)
Tutored two middle school students in the subjects of Math, Science, History, Spanish, and English. Tutored specific concepts and conducted mock labs to reinforce lessons. Aided students in improving note taking strategies.

College Level Computer Science Tutor (August 2019 - December 2019)
Tutored several college level students in computer science concepts and languages such as Java, Python, and C. Helped students learn concepts specific to the needs of classes through structuring lessons so that they match up to college course syllabi.

Application Developer, Sub Systems, Inc. (March 2020 - Present)
Working for a company designing and building software for use by other companies internally or as modular components in larger software.
I made inaccessible, buried, and hard-coded features of software products accessible and easy to use for users without a technical background.
I use C, C#, .NET and the win32 library to design and create user interfaces which allow the common user to quickly and easily access features which would before have necessitated modification of the source code.
The demo versions of the component software are more accessible and demonstrative of their capabilities, which has generated an increase in customer interest.

Full Stack Software Engineer, Software Engineering Project (Summer 2019)
(A project concerning the creation of a dynamic website supporting a civic cause with a RESTful API and database backend.)
I designed and implemented key components of the UI/UX of our front end using ReactJS, designed our JSON API, wrote MySQL and Python database queries, handled client side communication, and wrote unit tests.
Created a website revealing statistics on water quality and conservation, displaying geographical data on water quality in the US, and providing resources such as water conservation organization info and contact information.
Source code / proof of work: (concealed information)

Software Developer, Virtualization Project (Fall 2019)
(Tasked with contributing useful feature-related code to an open source virtualization project.)
I wrote C code to fix issues with an open source virtual machine's audio system to provide support for stereo sound output and reduce noises such as crackling.
I added support for internal undocumented registers used by some programs released by the system's developers which would not run on the virtual machine correctly.

Web Developer, Freelance (October 2018 - Present)
I utilize HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create websites showcasing small businesses' products and services.
Web Design and Graphic Design work for Pflugerville Women's Society, a nonprofit focusing on public works projects led by women in the Pflugerville, Texas area.
Web Development work for Training Wheels, a company that provided training for making sales in the automotive industry.
Graphic Design work for Shamrock Insurance, acquired by Lezam Insurance.

Lead Programmer, Operating Systems Project (Fall 2018)
(Tasked with adding functionality to a bare version of the PintOS toy operating system.)
I took initiative in leading the team towards each goal, bringing C and x86 experience and guidance to a team of primarily Java programmers.
Constructed critical components of a Linux-like operating system, such as building the handler for system service requests, implementing a fair context switching algorithm with minimal deadlock, handling virtual memory tasks such as address translation, and constructing necessary code for file system interactions and data transfer.

PROJECTS

Pantry Manager - an app maximizing utilization of pantry ingredients in the home by structuring meal plans.
GifCapture - an application for capturing a portion of the screen over time to produce animated images.
Text Prediction - creating predictive text programs using personal SMS data and Markov chains.
Virtualizing Board Games - creating computer games of traditional board games like Chess, Go, and Hive.
