I love coding, I love teaching, and I love people. Coding can be extremely intimidating to newcomers, but it's not as tricky as it seems. I love working with beginners and showing them you don't have to be an expert in technology or math to be a good programmer. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.
Hi, I would be happy to help in any way I can. I have a graduate certificate in software engineering from San Francisco State University. I have been learning how to code for a long time and I hope as a teacher I can make you learn what I know faster. I also have a programming job, so I know how to land a job and can also help you with your job search.
I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or trying to change careers, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike. As a result, most of my students get comfortable with programming after 4-6 sessions, and become more independent in programming, being able to troubleshoot issues with their own code. For intermediate developers, I can tailor my lessons to your specific goals, and focus on more engineering topics, such as software architecture, design patterns, performance/efficiency/scalability considerations, and interacting with external components, such as hardware/networking/operating systems/databases. In addition, I can help with technical whiteboard interviews, having extensive experience on both sides of the interview table. I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly. I am a quant analyst in the HFT realm, so if that's buying/selling stocks and options profitably is something you are interested in, either as a casual side hobby project or for a career, let me know!
