I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year.

I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.

About Chris
Hello I'm Chris! I am a Senior Software Developer specialized in website development. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a specialization in Web Applications.

I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year.
I worked as a Web Producer at Barnard College in New York City for a full semester and I also worked as a Lead Developer during three years.
I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.

Learning about computers, development in school and knowing how hard it can be, I came to a realization that what we learn is most of the time not what is being used on the job. Therefore I try to teach and give my students the exact skills they will
need in order to succeed in their careers and personal endeavors.

My lessons aim to everyone: children, teenagers and adults with all levels.
The method I use is based on active learning with interaction in order to make my students practice what they learn directly on their computers.

As a tutor but also as a professional, I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible to achieve that I make sure that my lessons are always tailored to the students and as personal as possible. I am also open to suggestions because the most important thing for me is that the students enjoys our lessons.

I am very easy going and will always answer you as fast as I can so please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

As a Software Developer I am very competent with basic computer programming. I have a very good knowledge of HTML, Javascript, CSS, JQuery, Angular and other front-end languages. I also teach about content management systems such as Wordpress and Magento.
Having worked at an IT help desk, I also have very good knowledge of computers in general such as Macbook and Windows based computers.

Please reach out if you are interested in learning about website development or just computers in general. I can not wait to help you reach your goals!

My passion all of my academic life has been computer programming. Ever since I took AP computer science my junior year of college, I knew this was going to be my career. I enjoyed it so much that I became a teacher's assistant for the very same class the very next year. I then went on to tutor many students, and took this skill all the way to college. I understand how different people learn because I have worked with many people with many different learning patterns. I enjoy knowing i can teach something that I have such a passion for.

About Viktor
I've been there: cramming for the next test, not understanding the material no matter how much I study it, at times it seems hopeless. I now understand how having an effective and experienced tutor can be the key to having an approach to schooling that is both effective and satisfying for both the student and parent. I've been through it, I understand it, and now with the knowledge I have gained I have been helping people achieve their academic goals in a fun and painless way.

View Full 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 enjoy tutoring and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

I thought piano was going to be impossible to learn for me because I have bad hand-eye coordination. Somehow Bill is able to motivate me to work with me despite my slowness until I am able to start advancing on my own.

Used to play a little violin when I was young and want to get back into it. Although I forgot almost everything, Bill made the transition really smooth and easy to understand. We also created a daily practice routine together and discussed how to practice without becoming frustrated.

I have been teaching professionally for 22 years. I have a specific style of teaching computer programming--it's whatever method works best for your learning style!! Besides learning computer programming, I will teach you the tools you need to make sure you have all the tools you need to be the programmer you would like to be! Today's computer programmers are expected to know the importance of usability for your audience, search engine optimization and how to create graphics and more. You will learn why things and what are your best reference tools to turn to if you ever need them! I make it fun and accessible to learn--as it should be. Humor is a great enabler to unlock your greatest computer programming. Anyone can teach and anyone can learn, but when you connect with your teacher who shares your goals and objectives it is a whole new level of what you can do.

About Zack
I have been teaching computer programming, (HTML, PHP, CSS, JavaScript, Frameworks and more), computer skills and Photography for over 20 years. I teach software programs such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and more. If you want to learn how to design or manage social media website, I'll help you too. I believe that the best teachers adapt to the ways the best work for their students. The environment for Take Lessons makes it very easy to adapt to what works best for you. If it's online or in-person, I'm your teacher and I really look forward to meeting you and helping you unlock your interests and greatest potential. - Zack

Zack has really taught me a lot as far as basic html, how to create easy email templates and basic coding skills for microsites. His skillset knows no bounds. Has vast experience to draw from, has the patience of a saint, has been teaching for a really long time. But private lessons are where its at. That way you can learn exactly what you want, and not syphon through the stuff you really don't need to help your career, along.

If you're interested in programming and have never typed a print statement before, or if you're a college student who needs help with your current programming assignment, I'm your guy!

Currently, I specialize in iOS development at a tech company in downtown Boston. In college, I worked pretty much exclusively with Java and JavaScript. Solving tricky problems is my day job and I'm excited to help teach you how to think like a programmer!

For beginners, I can introduce you to the thought process behind programming. One of the most important lessons when learning is to be able to take a problem and break it into smaller, more manageable problems. To work on this concept, we can start with simple word problems and try to break it into simpler steps.

For college students studying programming in some way (computer science or math majors), or for people that already have some knowledge and just want to improve: something we can do is cover the basics to separate technologies that ...

About Nathan
I'm Nate!

Music has been a huge part of my life since I was a kid. I started drum lessons when I was in second grade and eventually switched to learning bass in seventh grade. I've been playing bass ever since (so for about ten years now).

In high school, I studied music extensively and worked one-on-one with many of my teachers to gain a better understanding of the subject.

In 2012, I was accepted for Jazz bass performance at UMass Amherst back. After a semester of intense music study, I switched majors and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a focus in Software Engineering.

In high school and in college, I tutored students via an online tutoring portal (similar to TakeLessons). Subjects I've tutored in include 5th grade and 7th grade mathematics, as well as college level music theory.

I look forwar
d to meeting you and learning what it is exactly you wish to improve. I'll do everything I can to help you achieve that goal and hopefully have fun doing it!

About Ahmed
I do not see teaching as simply repeating what has been already detailed in text books and lectures. Everyone’s mind is different and thus everyone has a unique perception to understanding one issue or another. Things are better illustrated with an example.

A while back, there was a television show hosted by a T.V. personality named Monty Hall. In the show, Monty presented a contestant with 3 closed doors. Behind one door was a new car. And behind each of the other two doors was a goat. The contestant had the option to choose one door so as to win the new car.

The probability that a car was behind door 1 or door 2 or door 3 was the same, about 33.33%. Let us say that the contestant picked door 1. Monty would then open one of the other two doors that were not chosen by the contestant. There were 3 terms in the game: 1) Monty knew what w
as behind each door; 2) Monty cannot open the door that was already chosen by the contestant; 3) Monty would only open a door that hides a goat.

Let us say Monty opened door 3 revealing a goat. Monty then asked the contestant if the contestant would like to switch to door 2 or keep his original choice of door 1. Contestants would be bewildered not knowing really what to do. Was it better to keep the originally choice or was it better to switch or it would make no difference whether to keep the original choice or switch?

Meet Marilyn vos Savant. Marilyn wrote a column called “Ask Marilyn” in a newspaper called Parade. Marilyn was known for having one of the highest recorded IQ. A reader sent Marilyn a letter asking her if it was better to switch or not to switch. Marilyn stated in her column that a contestant should switch since switching doubled the contestant’s chances of winning. Many of Marilyn’s readers erupted in protest including readers with Ph.D., mathematicians, and academicians. Most people believed that the probability that a car was behind door 1 or door 2 was the same of 50%.

This became known as The Monty Hall Problem or The Monty Hall Paradox. Articles and books were written over this problem. Actually Marilyn was right and this was proven using computer simulation. Yet until today many people cannot understand that switching doubles the chances of winning.

At first glance this paradox might seem irrelevant to teaching. But I think it does. This paradox tutor the mind in the subject of structured thinking which is very important in learning.
