Engineer with 10+ years of programming experience offering lessons in Python, C, C++, and general programming topics (OOP, logic, data structures, algorithms, etc.) remotely and in Orange County

Methodology

I give lessons in mathematics, physics, and computer science/programming from high school up to undergraduate level topics.
I work with students to understand what their current comprehension level is for the given topic, and where it needs to be to pass their courses and exams with flying colors.
I come up with lesson plans, example problems, and reference materials that will help students gain a broader understanding of the topic without need for rote memorization of minutiae, with a focus on the fundamentals and specific details that students need to be very familiar with to succeed, not only in their current courses, but in future course that build on current concepts.

Background

I am an engineer with professional experience in communications engineering, machine learning, and data analysis. I graduated from UCLA with degrees in electrical engineering and applied mathematics (with specialties in communications and applied numerical algorithms). I have been programming for over a decade, and have been using Python, C, and C++ on a daily basis to solve a wide array of real-world engineering problems for the last 4 years.
