I have vast experience working with computers and have been an avid user of Microsoft Office for decades. I can teach you all the things that Office has to offer or concentrate on one specific aspect of it. You tell me why you are interested in Office and what you plan to get out it, and I will do my best to help your reach those goals.

About Pedro

I am a Civil Engineer specialized in Earthquake Engineering, but have diversified my background throughout the years (I am an avid student myself!). My teaching experience includes working as a professor at my university back at home and tutoring high school students- mainly in mathematics and phys

Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!

Hey you! I know programming in Python (or just coding in general) can seem really hard or scary. I do get it, but it doesn't have to be. Most concepts just need to be broken down for us human beings to understand what is going on! When you and I have a session together, we'll use my LEGO strategy to learn each new concept. Basically, we are going to break every big concept down into smaller pieces, master those smaller pieces and then put them back together. So, whether you want to improve your coding skills, get in your favorite coding bootcamp, create websites that go on your portfolio, or ace your classes. I am here to help you crash it!

About Sean

There is no such thing as talent. You simply need love and passion for what you want to achieve. My main focus is to get you excited about learning new things! I am a professional web developer, who also works as a data warehousing developer. There are many things I love, but I am most passionat

  • Speaks English, Mandarin Chinese

  • Masters in Computer Science (Machine learning/Artificial Intelligence) from Georgia Tech
Quick view 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 think I am quite aware of the fact that there are numerous times where students go completely blank. At that time I genuinely think that I as a tutor would be a lot helpful to guide such students to get what they are looking for. The main responsibility of the tutor is to help students learn, reviewing content with them, explaining how to solve problems and checking completed work. On top of that, a tutor may also help students develop study skills and organization techniques to help improve their academic performance. Taking all these things into consideration I personally involve myself to understand my students deeply so that I could teach them according to their needs.

About Prabin

This is the first time I have started to teach others and be their tutor. I think this will help me in the long run to improve my skills and knowledge that I have gained so far. I think the best way to expand one's knowledge is to teach others and share your knowledge. There is no other way to mast

I have taught or been a teaching assistant for several web development courses at universities. One of my web development courses involved basic web design with HTML and CSS. Students designed a small website as a final project. I have mastered the use of basic HTML tags, such as links, images, and lists, as well as more complex web page elements, such as tables and forms. I will teach you the programming concepts as well as walk through coding examples. Boost your confidence in web design and programming by scheduling a one-on-one lesson with me!

About Kristy

I hold a Ph.D in Computer Science and MS degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics. As a university professor and lecturer, I have taught several courses in computer science, computer programming, web development, event-driven programming, data structures, algorithms, and discrete mathematics at

Rob is an amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter is very energetic, and has challenges staying on task. Rob makes every class fun, and adjusts his style or plan to keep her interested in the guitar lesson. I feel like she has learned a lot in a short period of time. I highly recommend Rob!

No show. I was set up and ready 10 minutes ahead of time, and 15 minutes after we were supposed to start I gave up. No call. no email, nothing. I called him at 6:20 to be told his day was screwed up by a funeral, and I told him my dog ate my homework. Pathetic. I knew I had a lesson, he must have known he had one to give, and no notification whatsoever. I don't do business like this.
