Tutoring

In Victoria, BC I offer in-person tutoring for both adults and students (at both high school and university levels.)

Help for individuals is available in the following areas:

  • Programming — I specialize in Java, but may also be able to help you with Perl, PHP, Javascript, or SQL. I have been a professional programmer for more than 25 years. I have a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria. (If you’re looking for University-level Java programming tutoring, my real value is to year 1 and 2 students.)
  • Website design — Basic or advanced html, image processing, simple JavaScript and jQuery. I have 20+ years experience.
  • WordPress — Learn how to set up and maintain your own WordPress site. I have 9+ years experience.
  • Photoshop — Learn how to do those cool things with Photoshop that you’ve never been able to figure out on your own. I have 20+ years experience.

From the parent of one of my UVic 1st Year Computer Science (CSC 115) students:

“Thanks for all your help you gave my son this term.

“It’s great to see him going in to an exam feeling confident! He has been really happy with your tutoring and I’m sure we will be calling on you again, possibly this Fall depending on his courses.

“We all agree you’re the best tutor he’s ever had!” – Fran

(Follow-up… this student went from an F to an A- in his CSC 115 course! Congrats!)

From one of my Website Design students:

“Exam was easy peasy thanks to you. It’s been great working with you this semester, couldn’t have done it without you… looks like a 90% overall.” – Renee

My tutoring rate for students (high school/college/university) is a firm $45/hour; my rate for non-students is $60/hour.
(Minimum 2 hours for the first session, and 1 hour minimum after that.)

NOTE: I’m well aware that $45/hour is higher than most tutors… but I really can’t afford to work for less than that, as tutoring is something that I do in addition to several other projects. If you can’t afford that rate, then please contact School is Easy for other great tutoring options.
