Methodology


First and foremost, I am a college student and a computer programmer! I can provide lessons to anyone that is in high school or starting out in college. You can be someone who has never programmed before or someone that is familiar but needs to strengthen their skills. My techniques to help teach (bear with me as I’m new to this) would be to let the student show me what they’re trying to work on or improve then I can walk them through it line by line and explain whats going on in the program. If a book is available, I can go through it with the student to reference important concepts or examples that will help with homework or projects. Otherwise I am happy to use various websites that I use in my own classes in order to teach the student an important programming concept. After the student knows what they’re supposed to do, my approach as a tutor is to let them do it on their own and if I see anything wrong, I’ll point it out at the end or if there’s a better way to do something then I’ll also point that out. I’ll avoid giving out full answers right away until the student has exhausted all other options.

Background

Hello all! I've been giving lessons for the past year through one-on-one sessions at the lab in my college.
From early 2019 to now, I've helped out over 30 students (both classmates and non classmates that were majoring in STEM). They were all really good students and after spending a few lab sessions with me, many of them improved their grades in their programming classes and they stuck to their major rather than changing it. My practical experience has been through the classes I’ve taken at my college and outside of the college during my summers. During both summers I worked on a variety of personal projects to further expand my knowledge on Python and C++. I’ve created a tic-tac-toe clone, calculators, GPA report generators, restaurant bill generators, a PokeMart simulator, a Breakout clone, and many more projects. I’m still in college and expect to have my Computer Science associates in Spring of 2021. Following that, I’ll be pursuing a bachelors in Computer Science and learn languages like Java,Swift and more so I can be a robust programmer!
