Hey, I'm Zee. I am recent graduate with a Bachelor's in Computer Science from Clayton State University.

I worked at CSU as the Department Tutor from 2013 in my late Sophomore year until my graduation in 2017. I most enjoy teaching programming and Computer Science, but can also teach related subjects, such as Math and English. I teach with understandable language and personalized examples that my students can relate to. I use extensive and comprehensive visual aids in my guided lessons and encourage curiosity and independent exploration. I teach younger and older students alike. I pride myself on making the learning experience fun, engaging, and relevant using real-world examples and analogies/metaphors that connect with my students personally. I am a visual and experiential learner that loves drawing pictures, asking questions, and getting students involved, but can also deliver detailed and organized lectures for my note-takers out there. I have worked with students with varied ages, experience, and backgrounds.

I like to approach Computer Science differently than what I've witnessed in my academic history. Professors and long-term professionals seem to have forgotten what it was like being a first-year student. I often make the analogy that professors are trying to "grow a tree in space." I believe that the mind is like "soil," and each new thing we learn is like a seed planted in that soil, drawing from past experience to build relevance and "deeply root" that new knowledge into our minds. However, I often feel that introductory courses in computer science try to grow that new tree "in space," meaning that they jump straight into computer science concepts and vocabulary without making relevant connections to student's past knowledge. Having a rocky start into this subject can cause low academic confidence, which can be hard to shake. As a tutor, I am here to make sure that doesn't happen." less...
