Meet CCLC Coach Josh Overbeek

Josh Overbeek, CCLC coach

About me: I'm a third-year CS student from just south of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Beyond that, I'm also a third degree black belt in tae kwon do and a FIRST alum/occasional mentor; I'm always happy to talk about it.
Thoughts on CCLC coaching: I really love teaching, especially programming, and I think it's a great way to continue doing that and actually helping other students.
CS courses that I can help with: CS 1122, CS 1142, CS 2311, CS 2321, CS 3141, CS 3311, CS 3331, CS 3421, CS 3425
Programming languages I know: C, C++, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, SQL
