I Love Teaching Web Development! No matter what your goal is with coding (finishing projects, preparing for an interview, or even learning the basics), I can mentor you by helping you hone your skills and build your confidence. Back at University, I was a TA for several Web Development courses and I loved helping students work on their projects and fully understand the principle coding concepts in the process. I have build many projects using a wide range of coding languages (HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, React, Python, PHP, SQL, Java).

Hi, my name is Bob. I have worked as a computing tutor for several years. In fact, I began my tutoring in college, and I have taught courses as part of my jobs in many companies. I really love teaching and working with students one-on-one.

A good tutor can guide a student in the right direction and save the student hours of frustration and days searching online. I specialize in computing topics including Web Design, C, C++, Java, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

My first and most important objective is to ensure that students are able to solve problems and apply reasoning skills on their own, to find solutions. We will develop new approaches to old solutions and apply the best of programming practices.

I have a B.S. in physics from CalTech, and a Ph.D. In Informatics from UCSF. I have worked in medicine, pharmacology, aerospace, healthcare computing, 3D visualization, and analysis. I have worked with students enrolled in a variety of programs including nursing, informatics, engineering, ...

About Robert

I am a former Pediatrician. I got into computing in High School in the 1960s and have worked at Apple, Boeing, GE, and SAP in several roles developing software for medical and graphic applications. Today I work primarily in Java and Javascript and have taught these topics for several years on W

In all my lessons I take more of a psychological approach to things, and so my methods work for just about any age group. My lectures aren’t focused on the boring stuff, like books. They’re focused on getting your foot in the door of programming as quickly and effective as possible. I was self thought, I’ve been through it, and so I know what you need to know to get that foot in. I’ve taken everything I’ve learnt and stripped it down to what I actually needed to know to get to that place; you’re basically learning from my mistakes. So you’re getting what would usually take at least a couple of months to learn, in weeks. So come on, start programming in no time.

About Odane

Online Computer Programming Teacher

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I am also currently attending a top 10 computer science Masters program at Georgia Tech specializing in machine learning/artificial intelligence to fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

"He is one of the better individuals to talk to when it comes to starting with SQL and database. He paces himself fairly and invests the right amount of time in making sure you understand the concept. His problem solving techniques are what set him apart from other tutors that I had referred to in past."
