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 each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly. I am a quant analyst in the HFT realm, so if trading stocks and options is something you are interested in, either as a casual side hobby project or for a career, let me know!

Note: I very strongly suggest sending a message before booking to make sure I can meet your needs in your lessons! Python is one of the most popular and valuable programming languages in the modern world. It can be used for everything from data analysis to game design. I've been coding since I was in grade school, and have developed everything from games to niche software tools. I offer lessons for beginner and intermediate Python programming. My approach to teaching Python focuses on keeping lessons engaging and fun, while ensuring lots of practice with the concepts taught. I am constantly developing my curriculum to find ways to improve understanding while keeping things interesting. There are two main paths I offer students: 1) Game Development -- A very fun way to learn to code! We start by writing 10 different text-based programs & games along with numerous smaller exercises to teach the fundamental concepts of Python, then graduate to drawing graphics on screen using PyGame. 2) Data & Productivity -- For those looking to add Python to their repertoire for professional reasons, we cover the fundamentals with an eye toward data analysis using libraries like Matplotlib and Pandas, as well as GUI development using Tkinter. I'm also happy to tutor alongside your existing coursework if you're currently enrolled in a Python class. I look forward to being your new Python teacher!
