Computer Science PhD Candidate gives math and computer science tutoring in St. John's

Methodology

My teaching methods are based on interactivity with the material. Core testable concepts are repeated until students can easily do them on their own. Interspersed with this rote memorization and application of algorithmic problem solving are deeper questions about why we are doing this in the first place.

Background

PhD candidate in computer science, with a BSc in mathematics, an MSc in computer science.
7 Years of TAing experience in both mathematics and computer science. Calculus, databases, algorithm analysis, software development tools, object-oriented programming, compilers and translators.
Course instructor experience in computer science.
