About Gordon
Hello! My name is Gordon L. and I would love to help you or your child discover your passions and work towards reaching any academic or artistic goals!

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am fortunate to have had an exceptional academic foundation. I attended Punahou School K-12 earning high marks and went on to graduate college from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a variety of expertise and tutoring experience in these subjects:

- Computer Programming
- Math
- Chinese
- Humanities
- SAT

Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily investing myself in various forms of creative expression including:

- Dance (hip-hop/urban)
- Photography (DSLR, Lightroom/Photoshop)
- Card magic/Card flourishes (look it up :P)

Over the years, I have found that my enthusiasm for both people
and learning different things greatly enriches my life and those around me. If you're looking for someone who can introduce you to a variety of subjects, I'm your guy. I love learning about anything and everything and hope to encourage others to explore their passions. Furthermore, though my interests are many and varied, I have also committed years into training, have a solid grasp on their principles, and can confidently say that I am a qualified expert. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn with me!

Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I am also currently attending a top 10 computer science Masters program at Georgia Tech specializing in machine learning/artificial intelligence 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 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

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 enjoy tutoring and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

We start with an iterative format to give you quick results. The overall class will be based upon your desired general knowledge. Each lesson will give a basic towards a complete understanding and will include associated technologies unless you specifically state you would like to exclude them. The format is loosely similar to popular project managements systems such as Agile, Scrum and Sprints. The goal is to interweave techniques that give you an advantage and allow you to practice your skills on your own time.

About Akutra
Being a software developer for many years, I have seen technology change. Ever since a child I was always excited to see the new features and possibilities that would come with the knowledge of new technologies. The future is amazing and expect to see aspects of it in my classes. I like to teach a complete idea to help others develop their skills which may include associated technologies and allows a full project.

I have explored many skills in technology and have a general love of technology, multiple college degrees in technology with a 4.0 grade average (University of Advancing Technology). I feel that internet marketing and internet technologies are great skills to obtain. We should all get used to workforce re-education since the world is changing and developing.

Should you have a project or business idea, I would be glad to assi
st, advise, simply comment on it, and/or even help you market it. Should you need a business idea I can teach you idea expansion and brainstorming methods to open up new possibilities as well as help you to do this for yourself in anything you do.

Akutra is a great teacher... A professional approach and very thorough in his teaching. He takes his time to ensure that you are understanding and there is no feeling of rushing through.

I highly recommend him for brushing up your skills or learning from scratch.

A windows update caused my computer to crash in a major way, I did have some backups in place but was unsure of how to use them properly to get my computer running again. Akutra was able to diagnose the exact problem with me and walk me thru step by step of how to implement my back-up and get my computer running. I learned a ton, not only about windows but the skills a good teacher shows you have within yourself.

The thing that sets me apart as a teacher of the fine art of C++ is my ability to relay the material in a way that beginners can easily pick it up. There's alot of jargon and huge confusing words, but all that can be explained easily with associations with everyday concepts.

About Daniel
So as far as experience: started programming at the age of 12 (25 years ago! OMG I'm getting old!). I moved up to C++ and OpenGL for 3D graphics at the age of 16, and I just recently released my own game developed entirely myself. Of course along the way I pursued an actual degree in game and simulation programming. I'm laid back, down to earth and extremely good at breaking down the complexities of programming into easy to learn, bite size tidbits.
