Qualifications

I hold a B.S. in Computer Science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I’m a New Jersey certified teacher at West Windsor Plainsboro High School South. A brief introduction is available on my About page.

Teams from my classes won the 2007 and 2010 NJIT High School Programming Contests. My students write Java games and mobile phone games as well as other unique and challenging projects using Eclipse, BlueJ, and the command line.

In 2011 & 2012, I was selected as an instructor for Google’s CAPE Program. Together with other top CS educators from around the country, I taught animation, robotics, mobile programming, and other skills to aspiring high school freshmen. Local TV station NY1 featured the New York City CAPE Site at which I taught.

My services offer substantial advantages over tutoring by college students, professors, programmers, and online tutoring conglomerates. I tutor only one subject for which I am extensively qualified. I work with only one student at a time unless a group session has been arranged. My students complete all assignments themselves and develop an understanding of the underlying concepts.

How Online AP Computer Science Tutoring Works

Online AP Computer Science isn’t just more convenient than in person tutoring, it’s also effective. You can work in the environment in which you’re most comfortable. Whether you prefer a 3 monitor setup in your bedroom or a Macbook in your backyard, you aren’t limited to a messy kitchen table.

  1. Share screens with Skype or Google+ Hangouts (no camera needed)
  2. Talk using Skype, Google+ or a regular phone

I’m available as an online AP Computer Science tutor anywhere in the world. I’ve worked with students in nearby locations including New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. I’ve also worked with students from different time zones including Texas, California, London and Germany. For those students who prefer, I’m also available as a private in home AP Computer Science tutor in Princeton, West Windsor, Plainsboro, and South Brunswick, New Jersey.

I do not privately tutor my own students. Students currently enrolled in my classes who are seeking help should schedule time with me during their study hall periods, during lunch or in the morning.
