Hi, my name is Bob. I have worked as a computing tutor for several years. In fact, I began my tutoring in college, and I have taught courses as part of my jobs in many companies. I really love teaching and working with students one-on-one.

A good tutor can guide a student in the right direction and save the student hours of frustration and days searching online. I specialize in computing topics including Web Design, C, C++, Java, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

My first and most important objective is to ensure that students are able to solve problems and apply reasoning skills on their own, to find solutions. We will develop new approaches to old solutions and apply the best of programming practices.

I have a B.S. in physics from CalTech, and a Ph.D. In Informatics from UCSF. I have worked in medicine, pharmacology, aerospace, healthcare computing, 3D visualization, and analysis. I have worked with students enrolled in a variety of programs including nursing, informatics, engineering, business, and finance. I have also worked with many high school students over the years. I hope soon to work with you!

About Robert A.

I am a former Pediatrician. I got into computing in High School in the 1960s and have worked at Apple, Boeing, GE, and SAP in several roles developing software for medical and graphic applications.

Today I work primarily in Java and Javascript and have taught these topics for several years on WyzAnt and elsewhere. We can build websites, and make static sites active; we can access online information for sites and develop smart good-looking web pages.

I have tutored University of Washington classes in Java at all levels, and have worked professionally on large Java projects.

My Education:
BS CalTech 1971
MD U of Michigan 1976
PhD UCSF 1985

I love to code and teach smart coding.

I have taught kids as young as 8, and adults of all ages. We can work in-person, as well as online using shared desktops.
