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!

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.
