I teach basic computer programming with a focus in object oriented programming as well as procedural programming. 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 of great use when transitioning to other languages. What my lessons will do for you is teach you how to write basic programs efficiently, how to write classes, and how to use classes.

If you need a tutor who has a passion for programming and will go above and beyond then Corey is a perfect match. I am very new to programming and he was able to explain logic and math and various concepts to me well while at the same time not worrying about the time of our session but rather that i understood the subject matter. Also he asked me questions on what i think should be done, which is huge for me because i learn best not only when someone is teaching but when they ask me to think for myself. 5 stars Corey, thanks! and looking forward to our next session.

Private Java 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 close to 10 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other, and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals!

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 Java Lessons Near You

A general-purpose programming language, Java was first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. It's mostly object-oriented, though it does contain some primitive types. Java script is classified as and considered concurrent and class-based. It's widely used for software and application development across industries. As a result, it's pretty much essential to learn Javascript if you want to be a professional developer.

A dominant programming language, Java crosses industries and serves many purposes. It's used to manage transactions in banking, handle billing and receipts in retail, analyze big data, and helps scientists and researchers analyze data. Algorithms designed to analyze the stock market use Java, and it's used to eliminate implementation dependencies in information techno

...

logy. No matter where your programming or developing interests lie, you'll find Java to be an indispensable professional skill. 

Why Learn Java?

Do you dream of becoming a professional developer? Do you have a great idea for a smartphone app, but want to build it yourself? Are you interested in created solutions for machine learning and analyzing big data? If so, learning Java will open up many doors (in the shape of career opportunities) into several industries for you. Java developers are in high demand primarily because it's one of the most popular programming languages used today (and has been since the early 2000s). 

Java offers a great number of applications, including large systems development, software development, and mobile applications. Plus, the majority of smartphones used on the market today run on Android, which is a mobile operating system written in Javascript. With private Java classes, you'll be introduced to everything you need to know to become an expert-level professional developer. 

The Best Way to Learn Java and What You'll Study in Classes

Sure, you can find plenty of free Java lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn Java programming script is with a private Java teacher. With one-on-one lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the kind of personalized instruction that's not available in a larger class setting or when reading online tutorials. You'll be able to focus on the aspects of Java that you think need the most attention, while you learn new concepts at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. One-on-one teachers design each lesson and syllabus to meet their student's unique needs, taking into account existing knowledge and preferred learning styles. For example, Java classes for children differ greatly in terms of content and teaching methods from Java lessons for adults. You'll stay motivated and interested while you improve your skills quickly. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Java

Most beginner Java students have some previous experience with and general knowledge of C++ programming language. If you're an absolute beginner, though, that's okay, too! Your beginner Java tutor will work with you to determine your starting point and develop a syllabus to help you achieve your goals. In beginner lessons, you might learn some of the following topics:

  • Introduction to object-oriented programming
  • Learning language constructions: variables, data types, and classes
  • Java strings
  • Minecraft and Eclipse development environment

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Java

If you're already familiar with the basics of Java, but want to expand your knowledge and abilities to a more professional level, then intermediate classes are for you. Your teacher will introduce you to new concepts and challenge you to continue writing increasingly complex programs while overcoming personal challenges. In intermediate lessons, you might study some of the following subjects:

  • Exception handling and overrides
  • Java collections
  • Loops
  • Android programming

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Java

Advanced Java classes are intended for students who already have a thorough grasp and command of the Java programming language and principles. In these lessons, you'll have the opportunity to improve your skills by working with a professional. Topics covered in advanced lessons depend greatly on the individual student's goals and interests, but your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:

  • Abstract classes
  • Interfaces
  • Unit testing
  • Graphical user interfaces
