- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am currently a high school senior who has been teaching and tutoring math and computer science for the past 3 years.
I often found myself taking charge in my classes when the teacher did an inadequate job of explaining topics, it is for this reason that I decided to pursue teaching and tutoring. I have extensive personal experience with computer science and programming, as well as a fair amount of personal tutoring experience as well as landing a job as a teaching assistant for the 2019 All Star Code Summer intensive (A position usually only offered to college students, but that I was able to land due to my outstanding application).
Most of what I know is self-taught, although I do have 3 years of computer science classes (2 of them being college level) and a 5-week coding boot camp under my belt. I have also run middle school robotics teams, teaching them how to program robots as well as keeping them focused and under control, so I am very comfortable working with children. Being a current high school student, I can also understand how students grasp concepts (Not someone who has been in a profession for 20 years that will leave you more confused after answering a question then when you asked it).
I have a lot of experience providing clear and concise answers to questions, as well as in-depth explanations and examples to new topics, allowing students to fully understand what I am teaching them
I have taught Java, HTML JS and CSS (Web development), and Python, but am comfortable teaching introductory C++ and Lua
Garrett is a bright young man. Knowledgeable in programming. He definitely knows what he is doing. He loves what he does and it shows. I enjoyed working with him.
He is able to clearly and concicely explain the subject or matter at hand. Not giving the answer however effectively leading or explaining the steps as to how to solve the problem so the student has a better understanding as to what to do when he faces a similar problem in the future.+ Read More
