First off, your awesome for taking the time to read this! I assume you're having trouble with Python code/programming. I know the feeling, I understand that coding in Python can be freighting and often times intimidating, but that can change for the better. Just like learning anything new Python can seem as confusing as a puzzle for you, but with my R.R.F strategy we'll break down each coding piece to fully understand it, and then put those pieces back together to see the whole picture of how the concepts work together. No matter what you want to do with Python, whether it be improving your skills as a programmer or getting better grades in class. I am here to get you there.

I am here for you. to help you improve, reach your goals and further your education so that you may succeed. your success is important. I'm really hyped! Can't wait to speak with you and get the ball rolling!

About Marcus

I'm on the rise to becoming a full-stack developer and have been self studying python for a long time now. I have been able to teach my little brother the very basics of Python, and to my surprise he understood it at nine years old! This showed me that teaching was more so about social and communi

I have been teaching Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for more than eight years
This course takes you from knowing nothing about Photoshop to having an incredibly good handle on the program in as little time as possible.

The three legs of Photoshop are:
* Layers
* Selections
* Color Correction
If you understand how to manipulate those three elements you can accomplish just about anything with Photoshop. This course starts by going over those concepts and then shows how to combine them for powerful results. Rather than showing you every single feature this course focuses on the features people actually use without boring you to tears on the other tools.

About Kelvin

I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis. I am very comfortable with all aspects

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 8 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.

5 star isn't enough stars to rate her. Deniece is BRILLIANT, fast, and works totally inside of what I needed and how I needed to learn. She really listens and can create what's needed immediately. I can't say enough about how talented and customer oriented she is. I am beyond impressed with her. My issue was something I'd been struggling with for years and she created an excel system that's brilliant. I wouldn't go to anybody else and she's worth every penny!
Kara
Deniece was extremely patient, friendly, quick and taught at a pace that was comfortable for me. She is also thorough and if you have any questions even after your session-she is always quick to answer! I’m excited about working with her and I will be booking future sessions. I’m more knowledgeable in Excel due to her, thanks again!
James
Recently while working with Microsoft Excel I had a task before me that seems like it would take three or four hours. I called Deniece to see if there were any tricks to speed up the process. Within 8 minutes Deniece showed me a few features that I was unaware of and the job was done. Needless to say I was a star at my job and everyone wanted to know what I did!!

"I hired Etana to help me create a perfect birthday invitation for my daughters 1st birthday party. She was help, profession, and very intuitive in her design work. She helped me through the process from discussed graphics, the overall look, color scheme, and details. She was there with me from start to finish. The outcome was AMAZING. My daughters invitation turned out better then I could have ever anticipated!!!!! Etana is an outstanding designer and I would HIGHLY recommend her for any teaching or design needs you may have. Don't bother looking for anyone else. She is the BEST!!!"
