Are you passionate about algorithms and computer science?
I can help by giving you a proper USACO & IOI training: knowledge and insight into complex algorithms and data structures.
I'm a former competitor with relevant teaching experience.
I've worked with over 250 students from various countries and I've dedicated myself to improving my teaching methods.
I put my students on a systematic preparation program that amplifies their strengths.
As a result, every year, many of my students are awarded medals at national competitions. A few among them qualify for and are awarded medals at international competitions.
Some of my former students got accepted for internships and even got jobs at companies like Google, Facebook, Bloomberg, Apple or Microsoft.
I can help my students along the way by:
My coaching and mentoring will focus on skills essential in competitive programming:
For teaching online I use Skype for voice only and Google Docs for pair programming (it allows me to see in real time what the student is typing and vice-versa).
I find working in small groups of up to four students quite helpful because they can share ideas and spring new interesting discussions. Many of my top students are working with me in such groups. The students are grouped by their USACO division.
