'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12). In addition, Dr. Cliff is a Certified Tutor by American Tutoring Association and National Tutoring Association (Math); he holds California Teaching Credentials in Math (CSET I,II,III), Busin
ess (I,II,III), and Educational Technology/Computers (I,II); he is a Sylvan Certified Teacher in Math and Arts/Language K-12.

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

Java is the most used programming language in the world. I can teach you the basics through to advanced concepts such as abstract classes, interfaces, unit testing, and graphical user interfaces. There is a lot to learn, and I will patiently help you to learn to take advantage of this powerful modern programming language.

About Jason
Hello, my name is Jason. I began tutoring at Windward Community College while taking classes towards a bachelor's degree in information and computer science.

I can help with:

* C
* HTML/CSS
* Java
* JavaScript & TypeScript
* PHP
* Python

My specialty is in Web programming.

My experience started in helping iCan program participants master entry level mathematics and language arts. I also helped many students pursuing degrees in either computer science or engineering with programming and networking courses. I am now employed in the IT industry and teach what I've learned to others in the community.

I exercise patience and try to be easy going. Sessions are relaxed and productive. I understand technical material can be challenging and I try to explain things simply and clearly and I welcome questions. I look forward to he
lping you reach your goals.

I had such a good experience with Jason. He is very friendly, efficient and patient, which is essential when you learn JavaScript! We even went way over what I initially wanted to learn; he is very experienced and has impressive knowledge in front and back-end development. I have been trying to learn JavaScript by myself for a while but always ended up abandoning. I am confident that I will achieve my goals with the help of Jason. I strongly recommend learning with him! It will also be a good time!

About David M.

Close

Java is one of the most used programming languages in the world, it goes from our pockets in the mobile devices to cloud computing and robotics.

I can teach you from the most essential level to advanced concepts, helping you with an assignment or a project.

If you don't have any idea and you want to start from the scratch and you don't want to loose time you are in the right place.

About David
Hi! My name is David M. and I'm studying a degree in Computer Science. I'm in the last year so I hope that next year I will graduate.

All the assignments that I had to do in the previous years have showed me that programming isn't an ability for only a few people. If you have the correct attitude, motivation and see how it can change your life and the life of other people, you will learn easily all the keys to be a successful programmer.

In my classes I pretend to give this knowledge for my students and I believe that the world could be efficient, sustainably and better if we know how to control technology and use them with goodness, instead of letting technology control us.

I have advanced knowledge in C, C++, Java and Python that I have been learning for years so I can teach you from the basics to an expertise level.

Also, I
learned in deep Java while I was developing an app in Android, so I can help you if you want to know about making apps with Android Studio and more.

In addition, I have deep understanding in less known languages that implement programming paradigms that are very useful for solving certain type of problems:
• Haskell (functional programming)
• Prolog, CLIPS (declarative programming and SAT)

Finally, I know about efficient algorithm techniques (greedy, dynamic programming, flow networks); some AI techniques like local and heuristic search and compiler concepts (ANTLR, grammars).

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any doubt or you want to know if I can help you with other topic.

See you soon!! :)

This was my first time using Take Lessons and my experience with David is very recommendable. He knows how to teach to a beginner all the small details with very patience and it helped me a lot. He talks in a very comfortable and understable way and he demonstrate that he's a highly skilled developer. I would definitely reserve another lesson with him.
