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 ...
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

The voice can be fickle, mysterious, and deeply frustrating. I know this because I struggled to connect to my own voice for a long time. However, with the right direction and commitment, our voices can be fulfilling, powerful, and free. When I feel connected to my voice, I feel exhilarated.

Joseph taught my son a few difficult topics in honors Pre-calculus. In 2 hours my son went from knowing nothing, to understanding the topics fully. Joseph is an expert in this field and was able to clearly and patiently explain everything that my son did not know. We used him multiple times including the following year for AP Calculus. We highly recommend him!"
He impressed me already the first minutes of the first lesson he gave my son in AP Calculus BC by asking specific questions and pin pointing where my son might need help. After that he has come prepared and focused with materials for each tutoring session.

On top of all that, Marwan is a good, kind person and a really cool guy. You could not be in better hands."
