Private Computer Programming Teacher

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in high-frequency trading and autonomous vehicles/machine learning.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or trying to change careers, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike. As a result, most of my students get comfortable with programming after 4-6 sessions, and become more independent in programming, being able to troubleshoot issues with their own code.

For intermediate developers, I can tailor my lessons to your specific goals, and focus on more engineering topics, such as software architecture, design patterns, performance/efficiency/scalability considerations, and interacting with external components, such as hardware/networking/operating systems/databases. In addition, I can help with technical whiteboard interviews, having extensive experience on both ...

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier 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. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

I make sure i take my time to make sure my client understands the lesson. I'm also patient and don't mind going over things a couple of times. I let my clients know that there's no such thing as a stupid question, i'm all about clients asking a lot of questions.

Computer programming can be easier than you think,
Taking lessons with me, you can get a good idea of the fundamentals, which in return will help you build and grow with any programming languages you might want to learn in the future. I always start with JavaScript, because I think the language is very versatile and can be used on Mobile (React native), frontend (Reactjs), backend(Nodejs).
Come learn with me!!!

Without a doubt the best writer and teacher. Wesley helped me with my research papers and essays several times, and they have been picked as the best papers in classes of 60 students more than twice. He is very patient and on point. He teaches so many great writing tips. I highly recommend him.

Wesley is a wonderful teacher. He explains everything so well and in details. He helped me so much with writing my papers and assisted me in structuring my paper perfectly. I learned so many writing techniques from him. He is super patient and he makes sure you learn everything by giving different examples that make sense.

Wesley R. is a very smart and helpful person. He helped me with my writing assignments so much and taught me so many things about writing and the English language.

In these lessons, students learn coding by practicing their skills on a consistent, regular basis with guidance along the way. Through fun digital activities integrated into the virtual course platform, this program allows students to gain firsthand coding experience and interact directly with a variety of programming languages. For extra fun, ask your instructor about "gamification" of your personalized lessons during new student onboarding. I look forward to coding with you!
