About Jose C.

Close

Ever since I was little I loved creating on the computer. During college I fell in love with programming and game development. Programing games is one of the best ways of learning logic, math and object oriented programming.

I have experience ranging from EA, a multi million dollar studio, to creating my own games in my startup. Not only do I enjoy teaching programming but also enjoy talking about career prospects and how to network for a brighter future.

This is my fifth lesson with Jose. In that time he showed me how to read, write drum notation/score, play fills, and tightened up my overall playing. I am very pleased with my sound and I can't wait to learn more.

I have helped many students of computer science and engineering pass computer programming courses. I am patient and try to simplify the complexity of the subject. If you're a beginner, we can start with basics (syntax and semantics of a language) and eventually move on to creating working computer programs. At a more advanced level I can teach you software engineering techniques such as program structure, testing, and revision control systems. I look forward to helping you learn to program.

About Jason
Hello, my name is Jason. I began tutoring at Windward Community College while taking classes towards a bachelor's degree in information and computer science.

I can help with:

* C
* HTML/CSS
* Java
* JavaScript & TypeScript
* PHP
* Python

My specialty is in Web programming.

My experience started in helping iCan program participants master entry level mathematics and language arts. I also helped many students pursuing degrees in either computer science or engineering with programming and networking courses. I am now employed in the IT industry and teach what I've learned to others in the community.

I exercise patience and try to be easy going. Sessions are relaxed and productive. I understand technical material can be challenging and I try to explain things simply and clearly and I welcome questions. I look forward to he
lping you reach your goals.

I had such a good experience with Jason. He is very friendly, efficient and patient, which is essential when you learn JavaScript! We even went way over what I initially wanted to learn; he is very experienced and has impressive knowledge in front and back-end development. I have been trying to learn JavaScript by myself for a while but always ended up abandoning. I am confident that I will achieve my goals with the help of Jason. I strongly recommend learning with him! It will also be a good time!

About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

About Christopher
With eight years experience at Valencia College and 2 years at University of Central Florida I have experienced a wide variety of students between the ages 7 to 60 years. This experience has enabled me to customize lessons in one to one sessions with each unique student and their unique needs.

My teaching methodologies include plenty of visual aids, simile's, and clear communication with a strong emphasis on Socratic questioning to stimulate critical thought in helping to understand and take control of the information to be learned.

Sessions include visual and auditory components to learning and for students who need kinetic interaction to fulfill their learning process assignments can be assigned or custom problems can be created to be solved with an overview process of what is understood and what needs to be better diagnosed.

About Staci B.

Close
Wheaton, IL
View Full Profile

As an A+ certified student and a graduate in Bachelor's in Information Technology specializing in Programming, I am very confident in the field. I have worked contracts for companies like Rand McNally, BP corporate I.T department, and have done numerous I.T jobs.
I offer training for A+ Certification, Microsoft certification, and basic to advanced programming. I also offer SEO, and coding sessions. Don't be overwhelmed by the technicalities and the fancy terminology. It is a lot less simple than you think and you will be surprised to see how capable you are at being computer literate.

About Staci
Hey everyone. My name is Staci and I love meeting different students of different backgrounds and personalities. I have an Associates in Information Technology and am now pursing my bachelor's in the field, with a focus on programming. I am from Chicago so have almost seen it all. I excel in the field of communications and writing, and am also a freelance writer with several blogs of my own, and write for other blogs. I love writing research papers on various topics, especially on topics I am passionate about. I do creative writing and really have a good eye for art and film. In my spare time, I like to go to the gym, spend time with my fiance, canvas paint, and yes I even like to knit. Don't laugh at me. Music plays a major role in my life and know just about every R&B, soul, or hip-hop song that was released between the 80s-2000s.

I a
m the eldest of my siblings, and have a passion for teaching as much as I have a passion for learning. I have been tutoring since I was 8 years old, but did not monetize my tutoring skills until I was about 16 years old. Today, I am 25 and never get bored of finding different methods of teaching for individual students to help them achieve their academic or personal goals. I have tutored roughly 50 students in my tutoring career, more or less. I specialize in language, writing, Spanish for beginners, reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing research papers, science, mathematics from grades k-12, as well as college geometry and algebra, and many more subjects.

I cannot put enough emphasis on being patient with yourself when understanding a new concept. It's okay to not get everything the first or second time around. Take your time and enjoy the process of learning. You are actually exercising your brain when you are challenged, which is wonderful! I also want the people I work with to know that I am VERY LGBTQ friendly, and support minorities as well as understand some of the challenges they may face. Anytime you are in my presence, you are in a safe place, and you will always be treated with dignity.

Aside from being passionate about science for a few personal reasons, I actually aim to pursue medical school because of my passion for health and medicine. In case, for some reason I won't be able to do so, I have my bachelor's in an applied science to fall back on. Ultimately I would like to become an M.D working in the field of Preventative Medicine or become a surgeon I have written extensive research

I understand that the way computers work is not a natural way of thinking for most people and I strive to teach with examples and analogies that make concepts easier to understand. I find great joy in seeing somebody grasp a concept for the first time and will work to help you enjoy that feeling.

I have been working as a software engineer for 15 years and have the experience to help you with topics from high school programming courses, AP prep, college courses, and beyond.

About Derek
I am a working professional software engineer who also enjoys some video games, simulations, mountain biking, working on cars, and tinkering with just about anything.

I have loved computer programming and software engineering ever since my first program I wrote on my graphing calculator in high school. I have a Master's Degree in Software Engineering and 15 years of work experience.

I loved my formal schooling, but I love making practical application of computer science principles even more. I have worked professionally in C/C++, Java, and for the past 10 years C#. Often I find that the language you're using isn't the problem, rather the ability to understand the big picture and come up with an elegant solution.

I look forward to working with you to take your abilities to the next level and have some fun with it as you go.

Hi, my name is Bob. I have worked as a computing tutor for several years. In fact, I began my tutoring in college, and I have taught courses as part of my jobs in many companies. I really love teaching and working with students one-on-one.

A good tutor can guide a student in the right direction and save the student hours of frustration and days searching online. I specialize in computing topics including Web Design, C, C++, Java, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

My first and most important objective is to ensure that students are able to solve problems and apply reasoning skills on their own, to find solutions. We will develop new approaches to old solutions and apply the best of programming practices.

I have a B.S. in physics from CalTech, and a Ph.D. In Informatics from UCSF. I have worked in medicine, pharmacology, aerospace, healthcare computing, 3D visualization, and analysis. I have worked with students enrolled in a variety of programs including nursing, informatics, engineering, ...

About David
Hi! My name is David M. and I'm studying a degree in Computer Science. I'm in the last year so I hope that next year I will graduate.

All the assignments that I had to do in the previous years have showed me that programming isn't an ability for only a few people. If you have the correct attitude, motivation and see how it can change your life and the life of other people, you will learn easily all the keys to be a successful programmer.

In my classes I pretend to give this knowledge for my students and I believe that the world could be efficient, sustainably and better if we know how to control technology and use them with goodness, instead of letting technology control us.

I have advanced knowledge in C, C++, Java and Python that I have been learning for years so I can teach you from the basics to an expertise level.

Also, I
learned in deep Java while I was developing an app in Android, so I can help you if you want to know about making apps with Android Studio and more.

In addition, I have deep understanding in less known languages that implement programming paradigms that are very useful for solving certain type of problems:
• Haskell (functional programming)
• Prolog, CLIPS (declarative programming and SAT)

Finally, I know about efficient algorithm techniques (greedy, dynamic programming, flow networks); some AI techniques like local and heuristic search and compiler concepts (ANTLR, grammars).

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any doubt or you want to know if I can help you with other topic.

See you soon!! :)

This was my first time using Take Lessons and my experience with David is very recommendable. He knows how to teach to a beginner all the small details with very patience and it helped me a lot. He talks in a very comfortable and understable way and he demonstrate that he's a highly skilled developer. I would definitely reserve another lesson with him.

Passionate about programming but don't know where to start? Built a few applications already and want to deep dive into a specific topic? As a Master's student in Computer Science, I have teaching experience explaining complex mathematical and programming concepts, and practical experience from years of working in the industry. No matter your level of study, I can work with you to gain a better understanding of the wonderful world of code!

About Rebecca
I am a Master's student studying Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, with a specialization in Computer Graphics. I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at the same university, graduating in 2018. At my university, there is a strong focus on the fundamental mathematics underlying Computer Science - something that prepared me well for graduate studies and which I am excited to pass on to my future students.

I began programming at 15, and now have ten years of experience coding at different levels. I have years of co-operative education experience at five different companies, and have also worked as a contractor in industry. I have professional experience writing Java, academic experience writing C++ and C, and have also written applications in PhP, python, Go, C#, and bash, though I am less familiar with the p
articular syntax and libraries of those languages.

I have also worked with some interesting hardware - microprocessors, the Oculus Rift, Myo wrist bands, and more! I have a soft spot for gaming and game development, with some experience building games with Unity.

I am always looking for new projects to learn from and look forward to building awesome applications with you. :)
