I've been coding for 15 years and have enjoyed it from day one. Starting with the basics (loops, conditionals, variables), I can lead you through the logic of programming languages, and build towards the more advanced stuff.

Already have a foundation? We can start there as well. Either way, you will be a coding maven in no 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.

Languages include:
C
C++
Java
HTML
CSS
JavaScript
PHP
MySQL
JQuery

From Language basics to API Usage.
Language Algorithms

This course focuses on introduction and a system of self discovery of programming languages beginning with HTML scripting and ending with Python Interpreting.

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 Kristy V.

Close

I have over 15 years of university teaching experience in computer science. My courses have involved everything from programming languages such as Java to web design to data structures and algorithms. I will teach you the concepts of programming as well as walk through coding examples with you. I can also provide guidance for writing and debugging programs. Boost your programming confidence and get your programming assignments completed 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 the university level for more than 15 years. My experience also includes working as a graduate teaching assistant in both Computer Science and Mathematics. I continue to apply my experience and skills in online tutoring environments.

My web development courses have involved basic web design (HTML, CSS), client-side web programming (JavaScript), and server-side web programming (PHP, SQL). Programming languages I have taught include Java, C++, Visual Basic, and AppInventor. Java is the programming language with which I have the most experience.
I continue to learn new topics, programming languages, and web technologies to widen the array of subjects I am able to teach. I enjoy writing a program or designing a webpage and then watching it come to life.

My teaching methods involve detailed step-by-step explanations, working through examples, and live coding and problem solving. I am also skilled in tracking down errors in student programs, as well as suggesting ways to improve coding style and organization. The teaching settings in which I work best are one-on-one interactions with students and online environments.

I live in Hickory, NC and I have enjoyed regularly visiting the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. I am eager to work with students online or in-person to facilitate their learning and to encourage them to do their best. Contact me for more information and to schedule a lesson!

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 (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) 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 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.
