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.

Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes.
Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background.
Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white.
Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face.
Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease ...

I love to solve problems with code and enjoy helping others overcome the challenges they face when working through their projects. I recently completed the Data Science Immersive program at Galvanize. And because I'm passionate about learning new technologies, I was already a self-taught Rubyist and a self-taught Pythonista. I have a previous background in Information and Computer Science from UC Irvine.

I look forward to working together with you.

Jonathan is without a doubt a talented professional photographer / artist. Yet he has adapted himself to working with a novice trying to navigate a new digital camera before a big Patagonia vacation of a lifetime. Whether you are a beginner like I am or a professional photographer looking to improve your game, Jonathan will exceed your expectations. I like his patient and calm approach to my questions and after only two lessons I have already improved so much.

"I learned SO MUCH in just a short amount of time. Etana makes it SO MUCH FUN to learn and it's even more enjoyable because you're actually finally learning! Before Etana I tried a college, endless online courses (snore) and private lessons. They were all boring, not what I needed or just went by way too fast with no one to ask questions to. This experience was AWESOME! And Im SO glad I chose this Instructor out of the others. Great personality, funny sense of humor and learned alot."
