We will go over each of the fundamental skills found in all languages, but specifically in C++. Although you may recognize many topics such as variables, loops, and other algorithms/data structures that are universal in CS, we will dive deeper into C++ specific skills and foundations.

I have taken Comp Sci 1&2, APCSA, and CyberSecurity + AI at my school. I also teach Competitive Programming at my school's CS Club and have about a year's experience in C++.

About the Tutor

I've been active on Khan Academy for about 5 years now and wanted to give back to the community. I've tutored a few of my friends and enjoy teaching and explaining subjects, but I don't want to be a teacher. I have my fair share of commitments such as school/after school activities and sports, so I may not be online as often. Some of my hobbies include computer science, where I find endless fascination in coding, problem-solving, and developing innovative solutions. I focus on competitive programming like USACO in my spare time. I play soccer as well, which has been a part of my life since I was young, and I enjoy the rush of scoring goals, the strategic maneuvering on the field, and the camaraderie with my teammates. By integrating these diverse interests, I've developed a unique perspective that combines creativity with analytical thinking, teamwork with independent problem-solving, and physical strength with mental agility. I'm always excited to take on new challenges, expand my horizons, and make a positive impact in both the digital and physical realms. I have also achieved 1580 on my October 2023 Paper SAT with a 800 Math 780 RW Split. Feel free to message me anytime if you need help or have questions.
