Computer Studies / I.T. Lessons in Southsea

I have a PhD in Computer Science and studied at the most prestigious university in France, the "Ecole Normale Supérieure". I offer private tuition in Computer Science (including programming in C++, C, Java, Python, Haskell, Ocaml...) for GCSEs, A-levels / IB, degree level and adult learners, face-to-face in the Portsmouth area or online, via Google Hangouts or Skype, with webcam, whiteboard and screensharing.

Tutoring Experience

I have given tutorial classes and practical classes to Computer Science students (undergraduates years one through three) at Montpellier University (France). I have given over 350 hours of tuition in 2018/2019 to over 20 students. English - French bilingual, I offer private tuition to UK and overseas students.

Sakeen (undergrad, Python programming)
Excellent! "Jean has been brilliant at breaking down problems and has helped me understand concepts that I struggle with. He is extremely patient, and is always pushing me to think about what is happening in the code until I understand perfectly. He is a great guy and an amazing teacher, and I would highly recommend him! "

Thomas (undergrad, C++ programming):
Perfect! "The tutoring in C language programming was very helpful. Jean was resourceful and patient in going through the C++ mock exam along with answering subject questions. His programming background made it nice to ask extensive questions about variation in semantics or syntax. Our tutor sessions were at his house, his family was very welcoming and inviting. The two exam preparation sessions were great, writing code and drawing diagrams helped solidify C Language conventions. Thanks for helping me pass with flying colors! "

Jonathan (engineer, C++ programming) :
"Jean is really friendly and welcoming. He provided links to excellent learning resources which I have found very useful, and that I otherwise would never have found. He has very quickly established the right level for me to begin at, and all of my lessons so far have been really productive. He is patient when I need a moment to think and get my head around a concept, and encouraging and helpful when I'm working through something during a lesson."

Tutoring Approach

Each session is carefully thought out so that the student gets the most out of it, on specific topics they have chosen, working on theory, exercises and past exam papers.
