I do a lot of Python and SQL programming and can help in many ways from automating tasks, to building websites to data analysis or simply figuring out a good way to view your data.

About Casey

Hey you! I know programming can seem really difficult or scary, I was there too not so long ago. It doesn’t have to be if you are willing and able to ask for help and, YOU are here so YOU are able to break down those mental barriers. We all can understand most concepts if they are broken down for u

I’m a Senior Front End Developer and have worked extensively with Jp on multiple projects. He was always organized and had a well thought out plan whenever designing or developing a project. I hope to work with him again in the future and definitely recommend him for anyone who really wants to learn.
John
I can say without a doubt that JP was a main driver when it came to our teams ability to stay ahead of the game when it came to meeting deadlines. He is an extremely talented programmer with knowledge that many would envy about the industry and software development.
RAHAT
He is a good guy and told me some good recommended what should I do next time for this class.

But meanwhile, the main reason I paid him he wasn't able to do it. Yet he was counting his time while he should have thought about what he did for the amount of money I paid him. Before the lesson, I pick with him I told him what he needs to do for me. He said he is definitely able to do what I'm asking for. But at the end he didn't do not all of them but also whatever he did was a couple of them were wrong. Never taking any lessons with TAKELESSONS. Waste of my money.

Private 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.

Private Computer Programming Lessons Near You

Without computer programming, computers would be functionless hunks of metal and wire. Computer programming tells computers what they should do next. These instructions are called code. There are several types of codes (or languages) used for different types of computer programming. 

Computer programming can be as simple and basic as telling a calculator to perform simple sums or subtractions. It can be as complex as gathering and analyzing gigantic data sets. Computer programming can be used to automate cars, to send rockets to space, and even to tell your microwave the perfect parameters for popping corn. Studying computer programming gives you the keys to understanding how just about everything in today's world works. 

Why Sign Up for Computer Programming Classes?

Computers and software are everywhere you look. The world we know today couldn't function without them. Various programs are used across all industries for data collection, record keeping, data analysis, communication, commerce, transportation, productivity, research science, engineering, and more. Computer programs are no longer limited to personal computers, either; they're found in our appliances, vehicles, and in our pockets. 

Needless to say, there's an enormous demand for computer programmers of all kinds. This means ample opportunities for career advancement in a variety of sectors. Whether you're interested in creating algorithms to improve search metrics or marketing, writing programs for use in the finance industry, or taking your skills to the cutting edge of machine learning and artificial intelligence, a solid background in computer programming is essential for success. 

The Best Way to Learn Computer Programming and What You'll Study in Lessons

Sure, you can find plenty of free computer programming lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is with a private computer programming teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your tutor's undivided attention and the kind of personalized instruction that can't be found in online tutorials or in a larger class setting. With immediate feedback, you'll improve quickly, while focusing on the aspects of computer programming that interest you most. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers customize course content keeping in mind the student's interests, goals, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles. For example, computer programming classes for adults differ from computer programming lessons for kids in terms of teaching methods and content. No matter your age or current skill level, a private computer programming tutor will keep you motivated and interested, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Computer Programming

If you're new to computer programming or only have some previous experience, then beginner classes are for you. In these lessons, you'll learn the fundamentals and basic skills you need to get started. In beginner lessons, your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to computer programming, programming languages, and their common uses
  • Choose a language to learn first (JavaScript, Python, Ruby, HTML, CSS, etc.)
  • Overview of the fundamentals
  • Write your first simple command

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Computer Programming

If you're already familiar with the basics, but want to expand your knowledge and skillset, then intermediate lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll work with your tutor to improve your computer programming skills, challenging yourself to take on increasingly complex projects, as you learn new techniques. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Understanding, using and modifying data types, variables, strings, conditionals, loops, lists, etc.
  • Boolean logic
  • Consider user interface design and function
  • Compiling and interpreting

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Computer Programming

If you're an experienced programmer, hoping to improve, update, and/or streamline your programming techniques and knowledge, then advanced lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to work with a professional to hone your skills and expand your knowledge. Topics covered in advanced tutoring sessions depend greatly on the student's individual interests and goals, but your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Creating flexible programs with system recognition
  • Troubleshooting
  • Coding for security
  • Write complex programs

How to Find a Computer Programming Teacher Near You

Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as your technical knowledge and skills improve after only a few lessons.
