EducationBachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Dallas
I have been coding in Java for the better part of the last 7 years and have written several large applications including an inventory manager for a small store. I was captain/founder of the robotics team at my high school, and have coded professionally for about 6 months.
I scored a 2350 (800 Reading, 800 Math, 750 Writing) on the SAT my first attempt, and a 34 on my first attempt on the ACT. I am also a National Merit Scholar.
I have taken and gotten a 4 or 5 on the following AP exams: Calculus AB, Computer Science, Micro Economics, Macro Economics, US Government, US History, Physics B, Psychology.
Why I would be a good tutor:
I've spent as much time working on my social/speaking skills as I have on my academics, so not only do I know what I'm talking about, I know how to convey information clearly and concisely, and feel confident that I can make the tutoring process painless (and hopefully a little fun) for your child. In addition, my availability is very flexible.
I am proficient in programming the TI83-84 series calculators and have written several applications that can automate most pre-calculus math. In addition to my numerous other methods for improving test scores, I can also teach your son/daughter to fully utilize their calculator which can be invaluable when taking the SAT.
I have had several tutoring clients over the past semesters, and have worked out a system specifically tailored to the computer science programs at UT Dallas and SMU. While I am qualified in all the areas listed above, I am especially well equipped to handle those two programs in particular.
