'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration.

ts, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12).

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

About Chris
Hello I'm Chris! I am a Senior Software Developer specialized in website development. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a specialization in Web Applications.

I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year.
I worked as a Web Producer at Barnard College in New York City for a full semester and I also worked as a Lead Developer during three years.
I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.

L
earning about computers, development in school and knowing how hard it can be, I came to a realization that what we learn is most of the time not what is being used on the job. Therefore I try to teach and give my students the exact skills they will need in order to succeed in their careers and personal endeavors.

My lessons aim to everyone: children, teenagers and adults with all levels.
The method I use is based on active learning with interaction in order to make my students practice what they learn directly on their computers.

As a tutor but also as a professional, I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible to achieve that I make sure that my lessons are always tailored to the students and as personal as possible. I am also open to suggestions because the most important thing for me is that the students enjoys our lessons.

I am very easy going and will always answer you as fast as I can so please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

As a Software Developer I am very competent with basic computer programming. I have a very good knowledge of HTML, Javascript, CSS, JQuery, Angular and other front-end languages. I also teach about content management systems such as Wordpress and Magento.
Having worked at an IT help desk, I also have very good knowledge of computers in general such as Macbook and Windows based computers.

Please reach out if you are interested in learning about website development or just computers in general. I can not wait to help you reach your goals!

I have been programming for several years and JavaScript is my specialty as well as all time favorite language.I am aware of the subjects importance and as an experienced tutor i am willing to share my knowledge with all students who wish to master the language.I can also specialize in specific focus areas that some intermediate or advanced students might find challenging such as data structures,algorithms,design patterns, testing etc

I love a teaching method that is interactive and practical so that when we go through a few lessons together, a student feels confident enough to tackle similar problems on their own and if they run into any issues, i am always available to offer additional support until we are both satisfied with the results.

JavaScript is arguably one of the most import programming languages to learn and the best thing about it is that it is fun and easy, especially when you have a passionate and enthusiastic tutor like myself.

About Simba
I am a professional web developer and currently employed as a teaching assistant at Southern Methodist University Coding Boot Camp class where i teach several students web programming for both front-end and back-end development for approx 24 weeks.

I first began writing code in 2003 when i graduated from Belgium I.T. Varsity and have worked at several companies doing web design, development ,search engine optimizations and also some online marketing / data analytics.

I have taught a lot of people how to code,some who never had any hope and thought that it was something too difficult for
them to learn.Once we learn the fundamentals ,and after a few weeks of taking lessons together, students begin to realize how approachable and fun coding can be.This is the moment where i smile and be glad that i have been able to give my students the confidence they need in order to unleash their potential and create amazing things!.

The industry is fast paced and there is a lot of things that may change fast.My job is to make sure that all my students are learning the most relevant and in-demand skills that can help them to achieve their goals.Whether you are interested in learning to code in order to get employment, start a business, or just as a hobby, the skills that we will learn together are applicable and i bring a lot of experience as teaching is what i do for a living ,so you can be assured that you are getting some solid material with every lesson we go through.

My teaching style involves focusing on my individual students needs and then working on the areas that i find need more practice to make sure they grasp those concepts.I am able to teach students of all different ages, backgrounds and experience levels because patience is the key and once we establish a rhythm that we both like, the lessons get easier and much more fun as we get along.

Many people have a misconception that coding is for very smart individuals who are mathematics geniuses and love working with numbers or complex algorithms and the like.This couldn't be more further from the truth,and anyone can learn how to write elegant code once they are taught how to do it steadily i.e step by step

I encourage you to take a few lessons with me and i promise i will teach you the skills you need to become a great programmer.We will face some challenges and we will learn how to overcome them together,and this is how everyone learns to be a master at coding.Thank you for reading and see you in our first lesson together!

JavaScript is a great programming language, and also one of the most popular languages today! It basically makes websites come alive. Without it, most websites would be static and boring.

I teach both the basics of JavaScript for complete beginners, along with advanced topics such as Ajax (calling APIs), closures, functions, arrays, OOP, Prototypical Inheritance, ES6, coding challenges, common interview questions, libraries, frameworks, etc.

We will be covering theory and striving to understand the inner workings of how JavaScript works, how to run JavaScript in a browser, quick and easy ways to practice writing JavaScript, and great online resources for you to use at your convenience to continue coding and learning every day. I will also be doing a lot of live coding so you can see how things work. You will also be expected to write code to further cement the learning process.

About Eric
Hi, my name is Eric. I am a web developer with just under 10 years of professional experience in the industry. My top 3 languages are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I love learning, teaching, writing code, and building web sites! I'm constantly learning and striving to improve on my skills so that I can be both a better teacher and better developer.

My goal is to make each lesson both fun and educational for you. You should come away from the lessons having learned something new and useful in web development. I will cover the importance of each topic and explain how it fits into the bigger p
icture of web development as a whole.

Though learning to code definitely does take hard work, it doesn't have to be a boring "repeat it until you learn it" type of thing. It can also be interactive and fun.

A little more about me - when I'm not behind my computer writing code, I'm often up in the mountains snowboarding, climbing or hiking, or playing with my dog.

Allow me help you on your journey to become a web developer.
