Private Python Teacher

I started my teaching career in college to help pay the bills, but soon discovered a passion for educating. My formal education is part business and part engineering and. As a result, I view the software engineer is a professional with an understanding of the business, an intimate understanding of the technology, and the knowledge to leverage technology to benefit the business. It is my reward in life to make a living sharing the knowledge and experience that I carefully honed over the years, to help my students improve in their abilities and, reach their academic goals.

About Major

I specialize in full stack web application development. While at Duo Security, a leader in leader in multi-factor authentication, I wrote integrations for third party applications to use a two-factor cloud service. I founded MS3.llc where I built tools for predicting the profitability of products p

The reason why I hired Major for tutoring is that he is not only a good software engineer but also a great communicator. As a university student preparing for a software developer job after graduation, I needed to build a solid project with the latest technology as well as practice how to explain the code and its algorithm concisely and accurately. With his solid experience as a software engineer, he knows the best practice to implement features and make use of the latest libraries. With his intelligence and open-minded personality as a person, he will neatly explain the answer to my question with his rich vocabularies.
Anne-Sophie
I attended two group lectures and workshops by Major. I liked them! The pace was quick and we were expected to be strongly focused and to complete several exercises during the session, which ensured we wouldn't absorb knowledge passively. Major was very careful to take comments into account to improve or modify his teaching materials. The lessons started with a high-level overview, which was helpful in putting them into context.
Jack
Major is a GREAT instructor! This is my 11-year old son's first attempt with Python (he has been doing Scratch) and Major does a great job engaging with him and adjusting as they go to give my son a great experience. He has also been patient with some of our tech issues (thank you Major)

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 us enough that we can follow the process at hand!

During our sessions together, we will use my palm-sized-globe (PSG) strategy to learn each new concept. With this strategy, any aspect that isn't crystal clear to you, we will stop, and I encourage you to stop me at any time, rotate the globe, and I will offer you an explanation of the concept from another perspective.

Whether you want to improve your coding skills, learn how to automate processes, get into a coding bootcamp, deal with large data sets, create websites to build up your portfolio, or ace your classes, I will be there to help you succeed.

My objectives are focused on you, your education, your future and your career and ...

Casey is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and able to break down concepts into easy-to-understand language. In addition to teaching the general steps to writing code, he is able to present real-world applications in a wide variety of scientific disciplines for each example.

I highly recommend Casey for teaching Python, and programming in general.

For the hard core developers and scripters at heart. Python is a multiusage programming language that can be used to create "macros" or scripts that will accomplish tasks 1,000,000x faster than a person, as well as network,gui,and logical api's to provide any Python developer the power to create tools that can be run locally or on a server!

This course provides a fundamental understanding of Python, the syntax, logical operators, and expands later to explore creating web spiders, filtering traffic, creating packets and recreating a popular networking tool called "NMap".

This is an advanced course with advanced concepts and must be qualified for in order to be admitted.

Private Python Lessons Near You

Primarily used for web development and application development, Python is a multi-usage programming language. It features dynamic, integrated semantics. Thanks to its dynamic binding and typing capabilities, it's widely used for rapid-application building or development.

Python's syntax aims for readability, making it simple to learn and great collaboration. Python also supports packages and modules. Python saves programmers loads of time by making it easy to recycle code into new programs. For these reasons and others, Python's one of the most widely used coding languages. 

Why Sign Up for Python Classes?

Python's one of the best coding scripts for beginners to learn. As mentioned above, it's specifically designed to read easily, which makes it simple to absorb. Python's tools are also available to everyone at no cost. So, anyone with an interest in learning how to code can dip their toes in for free! 

Since Python's widely used for web and application development, including mobile applications, demand for Python programmers increases every day. Those who learn Python and reach a professional level of proficiency will have plenty of opportunities to work for a variety of businesses and non-profits developing mobile apps, games, web applications, and more! 

The opportunities for Python programmers abound. NASA even uses Python for programming the equipment and machinery they send to space. If you've ever dreamed of programming out-of-this-world applications, Python's for you!

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

Although you can find plenty of free Python classes and video tutorials online, the best way to learn how to program with Python is with private lessons. In private classes, you'll learn one-on-one with an expert. You'll receive personalized instruction, immediate feedback, and your teacher's undivided attention — benefits that simply aren't possible in a larger class setting or with online videos. This will keep you motivated and interested. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Private teachers customize each class to meet the student's unique needs. For example, Python classes for children differ in terms of teaching methods and content from Python lessons for adults. You'll work on the aspects of programming with which you need the most assistance and improve quickly, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Python

If you're new to programming or have some programming experience, but have never before studied Python, then beginner lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll be introduced to the basics of programming with Python. Your teacher will first talk with you about your existing knowledge of programming to determine where to begin and devise the perfect syllabus for you. In beginner lessons, you might cover the following topics:

  • Select a version of Python and install it 
  • Introduction to the Python shell
  • Learn the Python coding primitives including variables, built-in data types, comments, semantics, and syntax
  • Understanding how to use data types strings, lists, dictionaries, tuples, and numbers (integers, complex numbers, and floats)

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Python

If you're already familiar with the basics of Python, then intermediate lessons are right for you. In these courses, your python teacher will help you improve your coding skills. You'll learn new concepts, techniques, and challenge yourself to write increasingly complex programs. In intermediate lessons, you might study the following topics:

  • Learn to manipulate data types with operators, functions, and data type methods
  • Get used to working within IDLE and find a good code editor
  • Use Python's third-party modules and packages
  • Practice writing increasingly complex programs

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Python

Advanced lessons are intended for students with a solid background in Python. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to expand your knowledge, skillset, and capabilities while working with a Python programming expert. In these courses, you can improve your coding techniques and learn new approaches. The subjects taught in advanced lessons depend greatly on the student's individual interests, but your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • System programming
  • Mathematics and numerical computing
  • Graph theory and databases
  • Computer science
