Opportunity to tutor:
motivated 10 year old would like to learn computer coding (Java)
Student’s parents are looking for an interested responsible student who is capable in Java and would like to make some extra money and have fun tutoring a very motivated young student.
The sessions could be held on campus, at the Edmond public library, or any location that is convenient and safe.
Sessions could be scheduled on the weekend or possibly after school during the week, starting now and continuing through the summer and beyond.
One approach might be to use Codecademy (or something similar) as the basis for the tutoring, but parents are open to any reasonable suggestion.
Since the family has a 1 bedroom cottage for rent on our property (in an established neighborhood about 4 miles from campus) it might be possible to offer reduced rent in exchange for an agreed upon tutoring schedule if the preliminary results of the tutoring are satisfactory.
If qualified and interested, discuss an appointment for an interview by contacting the prospective clients at
