Five Stars! I haven't used AutoCAD for quite a few years. Valentina is an amazing teacher. After a few lessons, I feel very confident in my skills. She answered all of my questions and taught me new tips and tricks. Thank you Valentina, I appreciate all of your help.

Valentina is a wonderful teacher. She is dedicated, concise and driven. She creates a very friendly atmosphere of learning and is available to answer any questions. She assisted me with pronunciation, conjugations and knowledge to learn the aspects of Italian as a beginner. Bravo !!

I teach computer programming from a range of basic to advance object oriented programming along with algorithmic programming and data structures. For any student new to computer science/programming this is exactly where you want to start, as this application of programming is essential in all software. Java itself is especially a great language to start with for new programmers because it is class based and its implementation will inherently strengthen your ability to read and write code; this will later be highly beneficial when transitioning to other languages. My lessons will provide you with a strong coherence in terminology, conceptual understanding of program design and implementation, and an in-depth knowledge of how the Java compiler works.

Kevin
My daughter is high functioning autistic and was struggling with Algebra 1 to the point of nearly failing the class. We tried to work with another tutor but that was unsuccessful due to personality conflict between the tutor and my daughter. Once Corey started tutoring her, with his focus on understanding over memorization, my daughter's grades improved dramatically and she was so much happier. We were extremely happy with Corey's approach to teaching, his work ethic, and his patience and understanding dealing with someone with special needs. We intend to continue lessons with Corey in the fall for the next school year.
Danika
Corey helped me in Calculus and is a really great tutor. He doesn't just explain the problems but also the concepts beyond. It really helped me understand the fundamental issues I had with the class. His explanations are really concise and easy to understand.

What is JavaScript? The Mystery of This Programming Language Unveiled

The web - accessed through a web browser and created to share information among people was originally made up of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language – used for structuring web pages) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheet – used to design and light up web pages). This approach and components (HTML and CSS) made web pages static, leaving them with no way of performing any further activities when retrieved by the web browser.
