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 sides of the interview table.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for ...

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

About Wesley

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.

Wesley is an excellent instructor. He is patient, guiding and very supportive. He is fantastic about giving praise and building confidence and provides very helpful feedback when needed. I feel I am advancing more quickly that I thought I would which I credit to Wesley, his instruction and the encouragement he consistently provides. You will not find a better piano teacher!

We can fake our way through standards and simpler Disney tunes for our other students, but this is not usually the case when it comes to Mozart or Verdi. And if you are a classical soloist, it’s every bit as frustrating. It can get very costly to hire an acc …

Of all the instruments to choose from, learning piano is arguably the best. Let's look at some reasons why children should learn piano, and what makes this such a great first i …
