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.
I am passionate about teaching and helping students achieve their academic goals. My journey into tutoring started when I started scheduling for other students; I have conducted personal training for colleagues and juniors alike I love passing my experience and knowledge in management, programming, networking etc. to other students and everyone interested in learning something new.
Students with me will to completely understand a topic from its roots, this style of learning has been successful for me and should be for any student I help. Learning a concept from its roots and then preparing for the exams will become effortless.
My methodology is to understand the person and provide the knowledge. I adapt to particular student in every moment of the learning process. Many times I explain subjects which are not the core of what we study, but are relevant or crucial for better understanding of main subject.
I provide learners with both breadth and depth of understanding in each topic, before challenging them with extensive independent practice in tackling questions and coaching them through developing better responses. As learners gain confidence I build in the more challenging aspects and nuances of computer science.
I have a strong understanding of what teaching methods work best for students. I adapt and structure my lessons depending on how the student learns best. I have very positive feedback in one to one sessions I have already had.
My teaching method is very simple and it always depends on the skill level of my students. I'd say it's a rather adaptive technique based on the student and the material that he/she wishes to learn.
I am passionate about teaching and assisting a motivated student in achieving their goals. I obtained a Bachelors degree in Computer Science from the Bangalore University with a First. I also have a masters` degree in Software Engineering from the University of Southampton as well as a 2-year Diploma in Law.
I prefer to teach on a face to face basis. The length of the lessons are flexible and agreed upon prior to commencement of the course. I'll start with why learn the subject and then move on to the basics and then onto advanced subjects. The candidate can dictate the subject matter explicitly if preferred. I am flexible.
Consider me ONLY IF YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT PROBLEM SOLVING & CODING ! :) Hands on Practical coding techniques I concentrate on understanding of the student. Less theory & more practice with different problem solving exercises. Real world business cases. I learnt coding by hands on. If you are not interested in hands on - kindly do not consider me.
I usually teach in a hands on way. I will teach you by guiding you in small projects that push your skills further as you go on.
My youngest student is 6 years old - he has coded a custom maze game from Scratch without relying on a step-by-step guide; my oldest student was... well… a bit older - she wanted to build a website for a masters assignment. I don’t see the value in running through a tutorial zzz, it’s crucial that all my students learn to enjoy problem-solving and think for themselves...
I approach each topic my giving the student the necessary knowledge for that lesson before providing them with a few tasks to evaluate how well they understand the current topic. After that, I either give them a few more questions so that they feel completely comfortable with the subject or we touch upon the next section of the topic.
I have more than 10 years experience for tutoring in Glasgow. Tutoring to all those students from all the Glasgow universities who either fail or expecting to be failed in computer technology or any other relevant subjects.
My teaching method is showing the student how to perform a task, then letting them try it, and giving feedback to help them improve their skills
My lessons are created using lesson plans based on the individual's learning ability and tasks are set in small quantities with a hands on approach to reinforce learning. I also utilise question and answer sessions as a means to monitor learning. Small projects are also used as and when required.
I am a Software Engineers interested in sharing knowledge and experience, working with other interesting people, coaching, teaching, and making new friends in the tech community.
I tutor elementary to college level students. My teaching style is always based on the student's level of understanding and proficiency. I prefer 1:1, so that I can effectively zone in problematic areas for the student and then fix it.
After understanding your goals, motivations and strengths we dive together into a business problem we want to solve. Starting with a clear objective in mind, helps us to focus on the most important high level skills first, covering the relevant theory as needed. I provide you with similar exercises so that you can practise in your time what we have covered during the previous lesson.
My teaching method relies on the "dont rebuild the wheel" philosophy. In programming, a lot of concepts have already been built for you. I focus on how to decide which concept you will use and when to achieve the desired result. I base this by following the BlueJay textbook written by Dr. Michael Kolling. I also empower the student to fail as controlled failure is the first step to mastery.
The main thing about teaching for me is the individual approach to the student and the variation of the intensity of learning, that helps to increase overall progress. Also, it should be fun! I always use unique examples and analogies to fully present the topic.
For Python programming, I start with the algorithmic basics until full understanding. Then, I get the student to the implementation phase. During the implementation, I favor a hands-on approach where the students makes the mistakes and help him fix them while explaining why such and such doesn't work.
I do my best to simplify programming concept by learning visually and building projects step by step until a full competition which allows students to learn faster and learn by doing. I also explain why we use a certain concept in the project and how it contributes to the final picture of the project.
I can teach adults using a computer and textbooks. No lesson structure - we can agree on a topic to tackle e.g. modelling the weather or managing household expenses and then write a program to do this. I do not write apps but can build websites with Php. Can also modify photos and do artwork both on and off the computer.
Just send me your work, I can read through the code and make notes about what you need to do to improve on and can correct any errors you might have. I can also answer any questions you might have.
I believe the best introduction to programming and robotics is through practical applications. So that might be programming a computer game or building a robotic arm. The project should present enough challenges that encourages students to problem solve which cements the concepts to memory once it has been worked through.
I am friendly and enthusiastic with a lot of energy, and I think this comes out a lot during my classes. I understand how difficult it can be when first starting out to code. I can help you get to grips with some of the fundamental and the more difficult concepts of programming until you have the confidence to go it alone.
Firstly I will see where you are at. I will give you a small task (1 min). If I can see that you are doing well, I will continue with giving you harder tasks, until we reach your level of understanding of the subject. From there on, I will try and explain as much as I can about the subject by using practical examples of everyday uses of your subject.
Depending on what you want to learn I can teach you computer science from the baseline of the electronics of microprocessors, through assembly level code, to the C programming language and beyond. I will take you through examples of procedural code, object orientation, functional programming, HTML and CSS design, and I can make sure you understand the topics.
