Experienced Math And Computer Programming Tutor
I successfully completed the College Reading and Learning Association's International Tutor Program of Certification, and would very much like to talk to you about how I can help with your tutoring needs. I have a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering Technology (SET), from Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT), "minored" in mathematics, and tutored programming and math while earning my degree. As well, after earning my degree, I continued tutoring and began teaching math and programming students at local schools.
I took my first computer programming class in high school, and discovered I loved programming, and discovered I also loved helping others with programming. I became a programming tutor for various computer classes while earning an Associate of Applied Science in Business and an Associate of Arts at Kenai Peninsula Community College (KPCC). I was also a volunteer tutor and charter member of KPCC s Student Tutor Education Program, and earned an education credit for my work.
While continuing my education at OIT I came to love math, and took all the extra math classes I could, and the tutoring center coordinator asked me if I would tutor for them. After I began tutoring students asked me if I would tutor them privately. I also had parents contacting me via the grapevine, requesting that I tutor their children. My students regularly told me they thought I was a good tutor, and encouraged me to continue in the education field.
After I earned my Bachelor in SET from OIT, I considered the encouragement of my former students, and continued as a math and programming tutor at Lake Washington Technical College (LWTC) and Bellevue Community College (BCC). I also taught math and computer programming for 9 quarters at LWTC.
Later I taught computer programming at Bellevue Christian School (BCS), and also tutored math as a math-lab instructor, and also substituted for other teachers as needed. During my first year at BCS I also tutored math and computer programming at UW-Bothell, where students again encouraged me to continue in the education field.
More recently I tutored math and taught Java and C# computer programming at Bellevue College (BC). And today I work at King High school as a substitute teacher, and I hope to pursue my teaching credentials.
I still very much enjoy tutoring computer programming, and math, and I know my experiences as a math/programming teacher/tutor, and my own love of learning and my joy of sharing knowledge will be of benefit to you, enabling me to make a contribution to your confidence, understanding, and learning success, and I am sure you will agree after we discuss your tutoring needs.
Please contact me to discuss the possibility of my helping you with your tutoring needs. Thank you for your time, and consideration.
