Learn to touch type or improve the skills you have with practice sessions that are fun.

Touch typing is a technique that helps you type faster and more efficiently by using all your fingers. Typing with this technique is important because it can greatly improve your productivity, especially if you have a type-intensive job, like a programmer or a writer.

As a student, touch typing helps teach you how to decode and break down words and sentences which can also help with spelling skills. As you learn to type you become used to the pattern of the QWERTY keyboard and the structure of the letters, muscle memory alone can help you remember how to spell!

I couldn't imagine a better teacher. I was skeptical at first being the classes are online, however, I have immensely improved in my typing accuracy with only 10 short classes. It has been a wonderful experience and I will definitely be going to Mary Lou for any other lessons me or my son will need!

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 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.

"I used Aperture for years to adjust my photos, but when Apple stopped supporting it, I subscribed to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. LR is comparable to Aperture, but neither does a good job of fixing a blown out sky; PS offers several methods of dealing with this problem, none of them particularly simple. PS is a complex, daunting professional tool and I was stymied and discouraged. Nick taught me how to use PS to solve my problem and gave me confidence that I could, with study and practice, learn how to use PS to solve other problems. The important thing is that Nick listened to me as to my goal and directed his teaching to that goal. He showed enormous patience as I interrupted him with questions every 20 seconds. To sum up: it's unrealistic to try to learn PS in three hours. I needed specific knowledge to get over a difficult hurdle, and Nick taught me what I needed to use PS to solve my problem. I believe that I can now go forward to do a much better job adjusting and developing my photos, and that I have a better grasp on how to learn more about PS. Thank you, Nick."
