Note: I very strongly suggest sending a message before booking to make sure I can meet your needs in your lessons! Python is an incredibly versatile and sought-after programming language in today's digital landscape, with applications ranging from data analysis to game design. As a coding enthusiast since grade school, I've developed a wide array of projects, from engaging games to specialized software tools. I offer beginner and intermediate Python programming lessons that strike a balance between enjoyment and practical learning. My dynamic teaching approach centers on keeping lessons engaging and fun while providing ample hands-on practice with Python concepts. I continuously refine my curriculum to maximize understanding and maintain student interest. I offer two primary learning paths tailored to your needs and aspirations: 1. Game Development - Immerse yourself in the thrilling world of coding! We'll begin by crafting 10 diverse text-based programs and games, complemented by numerous smaller exercises to instill a solid understanding of Python fundamentals. Afterward, we'll dive into creating vibrant on-screen graphics using PyGame. 2. Data & Productivity - For those aiming to harness Python's power for professional purposes, we'll explore the core concepts with a focus on data analysis using libraries like Matplotlib and Pandas, as well as GUI development using Tkinter. If you're currently enrolled in a Python course, I'm more than happy to supplement your learning with personalized tutoring. Let's embark on your Python journey together—I can't wait to be your new Python teacher!
You can expect catered lessons best suited to your goals. I'm eager to meet everyone where they're at in their math background and to help build them up to where they'd like to be, whether that be for school, or other goals. I've worked with students from various backgrounds, understanding levels, and enthusiasm levels for math. I will put in the effort to identify the exact point of confusion on a topic, and directly address the matter. No one has the same ways of learning and understanding, and I cater my lessons to each individual student to best serve them! In addition to my college education, I have attended a data science and machine learning immersive which equipped me with essential coding and computing skills! I also have experience working with machine learning app deployment, data based web visualizations, and more!
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 trading stocks and options is something you are interested in, either as a casual side hobby project or for a career, let me know!
Experienced tutor of over five years, having taught students of a variety of backgrounds and skill levels ranging from tutoring middle and high school students in algebra to college undergraduates in solid-state physics. I tutored a sixth-grade girl in Python and helped her learn numpy, plotting, and more. I am a Princeton graduate with a degree in physics and a current Caltech PhD candidate in Materials Science. I aced the SAT and ACT in high school, got a near-perfect score on the GRE, and have achieved high grades across various challenging high school and college classes. My subject-matter expertise and wide range of tutoring experience, including with international students, illustrates my ability to adapt to different student needs. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your educational goals.
Many folks know Python as the language for Computer Science or Data Science developers. And though yes it is quite powerful to be used that way lets have some fun and build some Full Stack Applications. We will build real applications that you can use now. They will be visual and useful while using Python. We won't just use Python to work with data, but to show that off. Bring data to the user.
Joshua has worked great with my son. He explains coding in a way my 10 year old enjoys and understands. He seems to be organized and professional.
Natalia (Python lessons with Joshua A.)
My son and I were sorry to lose Joshua as a tutor. He was able to keep Roswell engaged in the material and fueled his curiosity.
Tom (Python lessons with Joshua A.)
Tawanna was clear in her instruction; lesson plans were extremely helpful and well thought out. I'm looking forward to more lessons. Book her you won't regret it
Tricia (Python lessons with Tawanna S.)
BIll is very knowledgeable, intelligent, and patient. I would recommend him to anyone learning Python. He will get you started and keep you going much more quickly than self-learning.
