Yes, gaming is a skill separate from the skill of being good at a particular game. There are many parallels between computer/video games and tabletop games, but once you understand the mechanics, they all start looking like they're built out of the same building blocks. This isn't a coincidence; they are! And lots of them get more fun when you understand this. Let's get to "work"! We'll start with some light games and work our way into something more dense.

A talented musician and caring instructor. My son is on the Autism Spectrum and really related to Francis. Francis encourages his students to lead the way with what they desire out of their lessons. So happy we found him!

my first lesson with Francis was excellent. we talked about goals for a few minutes, then got to work. It was a good vocal warmup and workout. I learned vocal exercises, as well as practicing on a song I wanted to work on. Francis is obviously a pro.

I have been playing games since I was 5 years old. I am a very high-level gamer and I have ranked number 4 in the entire world in the Gears of War leaderboards. I also have an extensive background in real-time strategy games like Warcraft, C&C, etc and I have played these games at a competitive level.

My target students for gaming are players of any level. I am an elite gamer and I rank in the top 1% in most games that I play.

Qazi is a serious tutor; I like that about him. He is also very intelligent. What I like about Qazi is that he balances the simple and the complex very skillfully. We reviewed terminal commands and started with Python. He knows his stuff but he doesn't brag. He lets the results speak for themselves. I am proud to be his student.

As a complete beginner in computer programming I had no idea where to start. Rafeh was able to help me gain a better understanding of the numerous languages and point me in the right direction. Awesome teacher and nice guy.

I have been working with Rafeh for 6 months and the results are far better than I could have imagined. When I started, I was a total programming novice. I began an online Coursera class in R programming and Rafeh’s help was the only way I could have completed it. He is a flexible and patient teacher. I found that he was committed to my full understanding of foundational concepts. He was not merely concerned with getting the answers right and getting through the class. Together, he guided me through several online courses using both Python and R. He has given me enough of a programming base to be accepted into a master’s program for analytics. This wouldn’t have been possible without his help.

Rafeh is a pleasure to work with. He has a friendly demeanor and is flexible with his scheduling. He is very knowledgeable in computer science, yet is able to explain to a total beginner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Adler is patient with me while also trying to push me forwards in the same moment, great to talk to about the lessons or even just normal things, sometimes it starts to seem more like I'm just getting some pointers from a friend instead of learning from a teacher. He knows what he is doing and knows that I can only do so much at times, he guides me through the lesson instead of just teaching it like most teachers I know of. Starting off he was able answer my repetitive questions about something that he might do without thinking, and will describe what he wants of me while teaching, not always serious or just going off on his own, expecting others to know exactly what he is doing. A great teacher and more like a friend than teacher at times.

Adler is a teacher who I'm fortunate enough to also call a friend. He is very passionate about art, is a very positive influence, and fun to be around. He doesnt sugar coat his critiques on your work but isnt harsh about it either. He gives many good pointers and advice, knowing how guide students to better foundations and improvement.

If there's a dream job out there, it's being able to teach someone how to game. With over 16 years of experience under my belt, I can get you wherever you want to be in a wide assortment of games, including certain MOBAs (namely DOTA 2), first person shooters, or, my favorite, grand strategy games.

My daughter took a few beginners lessons with Tyler a few years ago. She says that he was patient and always was willing to help her through her music. My daughter played in an orchestra in school but her playing improved much faster when she was taking lessons
