Software Developer / Monash Computer Science Graduate offering Programming, IT, and Computer Science chats online!

Methodology

My lessons are pretty flexible depending on what the student wants.

I can go through a particular syllabus with the student, but I have also prepared my own. I mainly use Python but the language

I am able to help students with:
Programming for the first time
Python
Java

I do not usually set homework unless student wants it or I believe it is necessary for the student to do some extra practice, but I will provide feedback at the end of every lesson and what needs to be worked on.

My teaching method tends to try to make sure a student understands a topic well enough they would be able to teach it to someone else before moving on.

Background

I started learning programming in year 10 and have since been happy to help many friends and peers with anything I can :D

I was a PASS leader in my second year for FIT1047 - Introduction to computer systems, networks and security, considered to be one of the more difficult first-year units, where I assisted many university students to pass that subject.

I worked at a tutoring company, Kumon, for a long time so I have lots of experience tutoring many students from Prep to VCE in Mathematics, and I have been private tutoring on and off for a few years.

My LinkedIn: (concealed information)

I now work full-time so I don't have the time for structured lessons.. So now I'm using Superprof so people can reach out to me and ask me about anything, connect with me on LinkedIn if you would like!

Alvin's response

Cassandra was really patient and communicated what worked/didnt't work. She was also flexible and responsive. I would be happy to help her again in the future.

Our daughter was interested in computer coding, so we found Alvin as her computer teacher.
Alvin's expertise in teaching has put our minds at ease. We are so grateful to see how our daughter has enjoyed her learning with Alvin.
Alvin has care, compassion, patience and commitment. Alvin is easily approachable. Whenever our daughter sends questions or inquires about her work, Alvin always responds very fast, it's very helpful for her to complete her tasks on time.
I am very pleased to have Alvin as our daughter's teacher!

Alvin has tutored me for a few of my university units which I initially had trouble with.
With his help I managed to get distinctions in FIT1047 introduction to computers, networks, and security, as well as MAT1830 discrete mathematics for computer science.
Every lesson I learnt something new and felt that he was very thorough and organised with his plans. He ensured that I understood something and regularly tested me to check.
Alvin was extremely patient and was able to answer all of my questions as fast as he could. I would send a question at 2am while I was stuck on something sometimes and I'd still get answer within 30 minutes.
