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.

My grandson Kristoph is happy and challanged enough to want to continue. Marian is very patient with children. We need to think about future classes and a little more structured approach. Thanks.

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 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.

Adler is not only a great instructor but an awesome person. He'll work with you one on one and really help understand the subject clearly. He helped me understand zbrush more than an actual school course did, at least for me.
