Hello! I am a multidisciplinary artist and NYC native looking to share my skills with anyone interested in pursuing art or fashion either personally or professionally. My skills include advanced research, design, sketching, patterning, and construction. I combine these skills with graphic design, photography, illustration, and video editing to provide a visual communicator of concept and artist identity to the viewer. I am very patient and I create a personal and in-depth approach to fashion and art development. In 2017 I received my MFA from the Fashion Design and Society Program at Parsons The New School for Design. After graduating I taught sophomore-level sewing, junior-level design, and senior-level thesis within the Parsons BFA program. I have held two independent fashion exhibitions and have dressed artists such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, Solange Knowles, Ciara, Kelsey Lu, and more. I recently completed a 2-month artist residency in Guayllabamba, Ecuador where I ...

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.

I graduated from IronHack in Data Analytics through Python, SQL, and Tableau. I still teach myself more every day after graduation because this is a very broad field, and there are always new technologies to learn. Thank you to my previous experience as a tutor for math and physics, I will be capable to also teach you the skills I have acquired for SQL.

About Sahivy

Learning a new skill is often difficult when professors teach a big class and teaching yourself can often be difficult and boring. I will make your learning much easier, and fun (as I consider myself a funny person, and I always make my students relate to the subject in a fun way). I have been tut

Thank you Amy. The lesson was absolutely wonderful! One thing though, as I was trying to take notes, the information coming at me started coming at me too fast. It was like a whirlwind came flying just over my head. But I did manage to catch much of it. Good stuff.

"Jason worked with me during the first few weeks of my C/C++ programming course. C was incredibly difficult for me to grasp at first (I have 2+ years in Java prior to this), especially with the concept of pointers and tracing. Jason was patient with me as he provided me different verbal examples of how to understand pointers (and how to implement that code). What was most helpful was how he helped me to learn to trace the stack while a program runs. The method was simple (using a dry erase board and creating the stack on a written table), but his patience with me and constant practice and reinforcement made the entire concept easy by the time I reached the end of the course.

I would use Jason again for tutoring in the subject of C, and also his knowledge of PHP."

"I love Joanne's teaching approach, she's very patient, professional and has tons of book knowledge, as well as corporate world experience. This is my first time taking a SQL class, as well as taking an Online Class, I love it!!! I feel comfortable asking questions during our (1 on 1 ) Skype sessions. When I have questions that surface while I'm working on the Homework Assignments, I feel very comfortable asking/emailing Joanne questions, her response time is Amazing!! = ) Especially considering the difference in our time zones, (3 hours difference). I"m looking forward to taking additional SQL classes."
