About Me

Experience Summary

My career path has winded around quite a bit but always focuses on computer science and math education. My education experience has included tutoring freelance, tutoring on USD's payroll, leading group study sessions, providing supplemental instruction for university coursework, leading workshops at a computer camp, writing workshops for that camp, and ultimately teaching math full time in a high school. My computer science field experience includes several part-time jobs, freelance web development, personal projects, an internship with NASA, and ultimately working full time as a Web developer.

Teaching Style

I prefer personal and small group teaching, but I can also do online tutoring with Webex. I like to get to know my students and their goals. I can help students set those goals, make plans, and achieve. I have lots of experience creating curriculum materials and lessons, and I try to find a real-life application to each lesson.

My Hobbies

Video games, gardening, cooking

Computer Programming Proficiency: Expert
My specialty is front-end Web development, but I am also competent with several back-end and desktop languages. I can also help you understand the vocabulary of the field, read the documentation for your technologies, and search for help effectively. I have 2 years experience tutoring students in college level Java classes, and experience as a freelance tutor in Web technologies.
CSS This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
My specialty subject is front-end Web development, and CSS is one of my strongest languages. I can help you at any level from your very first web page to advanced topics, such as choosing better selectors, debugging cross-browser issues, using frameworks and resets like Normalize, precompilers like SASS or LESS, and much more.
Geometry Proficiency: Experienced
Geometry is a fun subject because of the hands-on applications and variety of visual/interactive lessons that can accompany the topics. I briefly taught high school geometry, and I can also work with college-level axiomatic proof-based geometry.
Homework Help Proficiency: Experienced
Homework and study skills are one of my strength areas. I can help you get the most out of your textbook resources, knowing when to ask the teacher for extra help, searching for online help effectively, creating study materials such as note cards, and generally setting up a study routine that works for you.

jquery Proficiency: Experienced
JavaScript is one of my strongest skills, and my framework of choice is jQuery.
Microsoft Excel Proficiency: Experienced
I have a custom-made curriculum for Excel 2010 Basics, which at it's shortest can be crammed into a 30-minute presentation. But it can also be expanded with hands-on activities, new custom lessons, help with your specific Excel needs, and more to customize the experience for your goals and schedule.

The contents of a Pre-Algebra class vary school-to-school. I can help you identify the core concepts in your particular class, fill gaps in prior knowledge, learn study skills specific to algebra, and more.

Statistics is a subject that does not typically get in-depth coverage in K-12 classrooms, and I can help students understand the importance of basic statistics and data analysis with both drill exercises and real-world projects like weather-tracking.
Study Skills Proficiency: Experienced
Homework and study skills are one of my strength areas. I can help you get the most out of your textbook resources, knowing when to ask the teacher for extra help, searching for online help effectively, creating study materials such as note cards, and generally setting up a study routine that works for you.
