Hi, my name is Scott, and I am a developer and teacher who is passionate about learning. I work primarily in software development and computer security. Aside from this, I've taught students a variety of programming-related topics, and I love to inspire students to be passionate about the topics I teach. I have experience in both large class and one on one teaching, so I have the skills and experience to help you understand and succeed in the topics I teach!
I believe that mathematics and computer science can be approachable and fun topics. I tailor my courses so that they are easy to comprehend, with exploration of the what, why, and how of every topic. I understand that these topics are not a spectator sport, so I provide as many examples and practice problems as possible so that you can follow along and learn!
I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you, and I hope that you enjoy my classes.
