Doctor in Computer Science gives programming and algorithmics tuition in Portsmouth and online

Methodology

I offer private tuition in programming and algorithms (C++, C, Java, Python, Haskell, Ocaml...) for GCSEs, A-levels / IB, degree level and adult learners, face-to-face in the Portsmouth area or online, via Google Hangouts or Skype, with webcam, whiteboard and screensharing. Each session is carefully thought out so that the student gets the most out of it, on specific topics they have chosen, working on theory, exercises and past exam papers.

Background

I have a PhD in Computer Science and studied at the most prestigious university in France, the "Ecole Normale Supérieure".

I have given over 350 hours of CS tuition in 2018/2019 to over 20 students. English - French bilingual, I offer private tuition to UK and overseas students.

I have given tutorial classes and practical classes to degree-level Computer Science students (undergraduates years one through three) at Montpellier University (France).

I have long been a poker coach, producing didactic poker strategy videos and offering one-to-one coaching.

Jonathan (engineer, C++ programming) :
Jean is really friendly and welcoming. He provided links to excellent learning resources which I have found very useful, and that I otherwise would never have found. He has very quickly established the right level for me to begin at, and all of my lessons so far have been really productive. He is patient when I need a moment to think and get my head around a concept, and encouraging and helpful when I'm working through something during a lesson.

Excellent! Jean has been brilliant at breaking down problems and has helped me understand concepts that I struggle with. He is extremely patient, and is always pushing me to think about what is happening in the code until I understand perfectly. He is a great guy and an amazing teacher, and I would highly recommend him!

Perfect! The tutoring in C language programming was very helpful. Jean was resourceful and patient in going through the C++ mock exam along with answering subject questions. His programming background made it nice to ask extensive questions about variation in semantics or syntax.
Our tutor sessions were at his house, his family was very welcoming and inviting. The two exam preparation sessions were great, writing code and drawing diagrams helped solidify C Language conventions.
Thanks for helping me pass with flying colors!

Jean's response

I'm glad it was helpful. You are an enthusiastic student, and you made quick progress in your understanding of C++. Good job with your exam!

Jean is very caring and kind, as well as being extremely bright. We both have babies of a similar age- if my little one needs a maths tutor in the future I’ll be asking jean!

I've known Jean since school, and he's always been passionate about maths and its applications to various fields. He's very good at explaining complicated topics, breaking them down into small simple pieces. I highly recommend Jean as a tutor!
