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 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 teach basic computer programming with a focus in object oriented programming as well as procedural programming. For any student new to computer science/programming this is exactly where you want to start as this application of programming is essential in all software. Java itself is especially a great language to start with for new programmers because it is class based and its implementation will inherently strengthen your ability to read and write code; this will later be of great use when transitioning to other languages. What my lessons will do for you is teach you how to write basic programs efficiently, how to write classes, and how to use classes.

About Corey

Hi my name is Corey, I'm a computer science major and I am a huge nerd when it comes to math and other subjects of science. I have a strong passion for helping students excel in their academic goals! I began tutoring once I got back in school. At first it started off as a little side gig I didn'

If you need a tutor who has a passion for programming and will go above and beyond then Corey is a perfect match. I am very new to programming and he was able to explain logic and math and various concepts to me well while at the same time not worrying about the time of our session but rather that i understood the subject matter. Also he asked me questions on what i think should be done, which is huge for me because i learn best not only when someone is teaching but when they ask me to think for myself. 5 stars Corey, thanks! and looking forward to our next session.

What is JavaScript? The Mystery of This Programming Language Unveiled

The web - accessed through a web browser and created to share information among people was originally made up of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language – used for structuring web pages) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheet – used to design and light up web pages). This approach and components (HTML and CSS) made web pages static, leaving them with no way of performing any further activities when retrieved by the web browser.
