Doctor in Computer Science gives theoretical Computer Science and Computing tuition online

Methodology

I offer tuition in Computer Science, including theoretical CS (algorithms, logic, automata, Machine Learning, ...) and programming in Python, C++, C, Java, Javascript, Haskell, Ocaml. I tutor university students, adult learners, and pre-university students, usually online, via Google Hangouts, Skype or Zoom, 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, projects, past exam papers and tailored programming exercises.

Experience

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

I am a full time Computer Science tutor for university students. I have tutored over 70 students since 2018. English - French bilingual, I offer private tuition to UK and overseas students. I also tutor adult improvers and pre-university students who want to improve their programming skills.

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

Student Reviews from 2018-19

Ivan (Masters, C programming)
5 stars "An exceptional and professional tutor with in depth, subject matter expert knowledge coupled with clear communication and coaching skills. Over 6 hours of 1-2-1 tuition, Jean provided fantastic support, guidance relating to very technical and challenging aspects of C programme writing. Jean is a great tutor and I am delighted with his help to reach my key learning objectives and knowledge development. It should not be under estimated how difficult it can be to find such a high calibre tutor as Jean delivering excellent support in respect to computer science. Many thanks again, I highly recommend Jean for computer programme tuition and support."

Sakeen (undergrad, Python programming)
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! "

Jonathan (engineer, C++ programming)
5 stars. "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."

Joseph H (CS Masters)
5 stars. "Excellent CS tutor. Jean is an expert in the mathematical side of Computer Science and has helped me to understand and solve the complex problems of my Fundamentals of Computing module. Outcome: Distinction in coursework modules and good preparation for exams."

Thomas (undergrad, C++)
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!"

Marie (undergrad, C++ for finance)
"Jean has been a huge help. He explains things very clearly, is supportive and has amazing ability to understand new concepts/equations quickly and implement them. Would definitely recommend!"

Darius (A-levels, Python):
5 stars. "He explains the instructions for Python programmes very well. He was very succinct in explaining complex code. His demonstration was very good when using the whiteboard, in explaining the Computer programming work."

Lara (IB HL, Java):
5 stars, An outstanding CS tutor. "Jean is really an excellent tutor. He tries hard in making sure that the student actually understands the topic. He is patient, thorough and methodical. Jean is also very knowledgable and he is able to explain in a clear and simple way. I am highly recommending Jean for CS Higher level IB curriculum."

Criss (undergrad, CS):
"Excellent, was vary patient, and brought me step by step on what i needed to think about, in what way, what not to complicate, and how to think of alternative ways of showing a proof. Whenever there was a moment i didn't understand or couldn't follow he'd make things simpler and retrace steps to help me find my position in my understanding."
