Ridgewood, NY

View Full Profile

Introductory and practical course on programming with the objective of making it a fun experience for non-technical people; also offered as part of a learning package.

(IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)

About Rod
I specialize in Test Prep (NYC Gifted & Talented Test, SHSAT, TACHS/HSPT/COOP, SSAT/ISEE, Common Core, Regents, college/graduate admissions tests [i.e. SAT/ACT, GRE/GMAT]) and tutor a number of academic subjects in Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Combinatorics), Statistics and Science (especially Physics) and K-12 English. I am particularly interested in Number Theory, Systems Engineering (Feedback Theory), Electronics (Analog Circuit Design) and Cosmology. In the social sciences and in my work experience, I was practically exposed to Marketing and HR/Corporate Strategy. I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and business respectively and I enjoy tutoring both children and adults.

(NOTE: Use the "Ask a Question" feature to confirm if we have a match in schedules
and targets/expectations. In other words, DO NOT book any lessons with me unless we have a mutual understanding. Please read my profile below, the subject(s) you are interested in, my tutoring rates and minimum times very carefully. Thank you.)

My interests also include gifted learning and STEM education. For example, I was successful in helping a 5-year old pass the NYC Gifted & Talented Test so he could enroll in any New York City school participating in the program.

I have several years experience working with various people from different backgrounds as an engineer (hardware+software) and as business developer in multinational companies and startups and this exposure has given me deeper and practical insights into personality and intelligence enabling me to adapt my teaching style to different needs and situations. Furthermore, I have learned from experience that there are three best tools for learning: practice, practice and more practice!

Tutoring for yourself or for your son/daughter is both an investment in time and money for a future return so please also plan accordingly. Now, I make sure that I do not totally depend on tutoring for income so I can maintain a certain level of quality. In other words, when there is a match in objective, budget and schedule, I am quite happy to be part of someone's educational journey. I consider it indeed a very special privelege to be able to help a student because it is my experience that effective education can be life-changing. Finally, I am aware that other tutors may be in a better position to meet your existing situation so we have to accept that and move on.

Tutoring Rate (IMPORTANT): I only do in-person tutoring because I believe effective learning is multi-dimensional and personal not flat and distant. My minimum lesson length is 1.5 hours for Academic subjects and 2.0 hours for Test Prep. My rates for children and teens will in principle be at least the same as adults because I actually invest more time and effort since I have to consider the feedback of at least 2 individuals (student+guardian) compared with an adult student. Different arrangements possible on a case-by-case basis. Please see each subject rate for more details.

When I am not tutoring, I am involved in projects related to technology, hospitality and service industries. I also enjoy cooking especially when I can make an ordinary dish into something extra-ordinary by adding that little "extra."

I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

Rod worked with my daughter weekly for a couple of months leading up to the NYC state tests. With Rod's careful, concerted planning and diligence, my daughter's score went from 2.4 on the 7th grade Math state test, to a 2.8 in 8th grade, which equates to a move from below the 50th percentile, to between the 50th and 75th percentile. My daughter's in-school math instruction was chaotic and disjointed, and I attribute her improvement to Rod's intervention.

I have been teaching professionally for 22 years. I have a specific style of teaching computer programming--it's whatever method works best for your learning style!! Besides learning computer programming, I will teach you the tools you need to make sure you have all the tools you need to be the programmer you would like to be! Today's computer programmers are expected to know the importance of usability for your audience, search engine optimization and how to create graphics and more. You will learn why things and what are your best reference tools to turn to if you ever need them! I make it fun and accessible to learn--as it should be. Humor is a great enabler to unlock your greatest computer programming. Anyone can teach and anyone can learn, but when you connect with your teacher who shares your goals and objectives it is a whole new level of what you can do.

About Zack
I have been teaching computer programming, (HTML, PHP, CSS, JavaScript, Frameworks and more), computer skills and Photography for over 20 years. I teach software programs such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and more. If you want to learn how to design or manage social media website, I'll help you too. I believe that the best teachers adapt to the ways the best work for their students. The environment for Take Lessons makes it very easy to adapt to what works best for you. If it's online or in-person, I'm your teacher and I really look forward to meeting you and helping you unlock your interests and greatest potential. - Zack

Zack has really taught me a lot as far as basic html, how to create easy email templates and basic coding skills for microsites. His skillset knows no bounds. Has vast experience to draw from, has the patience of a saint, has been teaching for a really long time. But private lessons are where its at. That way you can learn exactly what you want, and not syphon through the stuff you really don't need to help your career, along.

We start with an iterative format to give you quick results. The overall class will be based upon your desired general knowledge. Each lesson will give a basic towards a complete understanding and will include associated technologies unless you specifically state you would like to exclude them. The format is loosely similar to popular project managements systems such as Agile, Scrum and Sprints. The goal is to interweave techniques that give you an advantage and allow you to practice your skills on your own time.

About Akutra
Being a software developer for many years, I have seen technology change. Ever since a child I was always excited to see the new features and possibilities that would come with the knowledge of new technologies. The future is amazing and expect to see aspects of it in my classes. I like to teach a complete idea to help others develop their skills which may include associated technologies and allows a full project.

I have explored many skills in technology and have a general love of technology, multiple college degrees in technology with a 4.0 grade average (University of Advancing Technology). I feel that internet marketing and internet technologies are great skills to obtain. We should all get used to workforce re-education since the world is changing and developing.

Should you have a project or business idea, I would be glad to assi
st, advise, simply comment on it, and/or even help you market it. Should you need a business idea I can teach you idea expansion and brainstorming methods to open up new possibilities as well as help you to do this for yourself in anything you do.

A windows update caused my computer to crash in a major way, I did have some backups in place but was unsure of how to use them properly to get my computer running again. Akutra was able to diagnose the exact problem with me and walk me thru step by step of how to implement my back-up and get my computer running. I learned a ton, not only about windows but the skills a good teacher shows you have within yourself.
