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 ...

Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.
Audrey B.
Daniel was an hour late to the class, didn't have any intro, did not even show his face online which should be a mandatory practice for security reasons. My son had a lesson with him for less than 45 min, ( in between he had to figure out to effectively use Zoom features because he didn't want to use the platform from Takelesson ) and he charged us one hour lesson. He was an ok teacher, but I think it's a strictly business for him, he said he won't teach an extra minute for free, Lol, don't be in this business if you don't love what you do.
It took me 30 min to found a better AP physics teacher at a better price on a different provider website, and honestly, they love what they do so everyone is happy.

Daniel was a great help to Skylar in math analysis and really helped her build her skill and confidence.

Private Python Teacher

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I have also studied machine learning/artificial intelligence academically 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 8 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.

I first learned to program on a IBM 5150, using the Intel 8086 processor, 640KB of RAM, and no hard drive! Back in those days, you really needed to know a lot of details about computers to even write a simple hello world program. Like about a page worth of difficult to decipher 8086 assembly code... Today you can do that same thing with just one line of simple code.
The point here is while programming has gotten much easier today, it does not mean you don't need to know at least some of the basic underlying fundamentals of computing. While computers are fast enough that you won't ever notice the performance of your code, there are surprisingly many instances where performance can be an issue. (Like building AI models, but also algorithms, for which performance isn't based on what language you use.)
So I don't just teach you Python, because once you have a basic grasp on the language itself, you can just google the rest. I don't even use many more advanced Python language ...

About Luther

I'm a laid back kind of guy, and I'm passionate about the subjects that I teach. I've been tutoring since 2011 in college and grad school, so I do have quite a bit of tutoring and teaching experience. Perhaps more important than knowledge and passion is the ability to break down a subject so

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
