I've been a teacher for game design with a focus in computer programming for 3 years. I'm currently a professional working with Disney Consumer Products and Drexel University. I have a strong passion for improving student literacy with game design methodologies because interactive media is rapidly becoming a significant force for how our culture is shaped. I've honed my craft while working for Disney, The VR Company, and 20th Century Fox.

About Justin
After studying at Drexel University and securing a B.S. in Information Technology with a Minor in English Literature, I studied for a Master's in Digital Media at Drexel University. As an undergraduate I was given the honor of acting as the commencement speaker for my school. As an MS graduate, I earned the Outstanding Master's award for my research and community contributions.

Drexel's professors and leadership supported my growth as a professional by hiring me on as an Adjunct Professor of Digital Media where I taught game design, project management, and 3D animation. I also served as a committee member to several graduate students. I've recently entered the games industry as a designer, embarking on a year-long game engineer position with Disney. I'm most rewarded when I provide mentorship to those who want to learn. I look forward
to working with you!

I wrote a review when my son first started working with Justin and a few months later I must say the experience continues to be exceptional. Justing puts so much thought into preparing for his lessons. He pays attention to what works best with my son's learning style and personality and is able to shift gears when necessary. He is extremely knowledgeable and not only recommends resources but answers questions via email between sessions. My son is feeling much more confident and has started to read books and articles on game design. I was so impressed that I started working with Justin as well. He has been an excellent HTML and CSS tutor and I am not at all a techie. I can't recommend him enough!

My son took his first online computer programming lesson with Justin yesterday. He had been trying to learn to code/make video games on his own but was finding it difficult to determine where to focus his energies. The lesson with Justin exceeded his expectations. He feels focussed and learned more in his first session than he has in the few weeks he has been trying on his own. I was impressed with Justin's prompt response to my initial inquiry which went out to several tutors. From his response it was clear that Justin had put a lot of thought into his response. He asked follow up questions was able to clearly articulate how he could address my sons needs. He put the same thought an energy into preparing the first lesson which he shared with us prior to the session. My son is looking forward to continuing to work with Justin. We will definitely be booking more lessons.

Justin provided a large amount of technical support and was interested in the projects we were doing both inside and outside of his class.

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!

I'm a former teacher so I recognize a great teacher. Tawana is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and explains the tasks simply and understandably. First she shows you and then she has you do it yourself to make sure you understood and mastered the skill. I'm really looking forward to our next lesson.

My experience with computer programming spans a little over 12 years, from classes in high school, college, and now working professionally as a Software Developer. My approach when teaching any technical subject is to break something down into the fundamentals in order to build a foundation. From there, once those fundamentals are mastered, it makes it a lot easier to transition between different languages and software design patterns.

I have previous experience tutoring online and have been able to successfully help multiple students understand fundamental concepts. I look forward to working with you!

About Gaurav
As a graduate of the Carnegie Mellon Mechanical Engineering program, I had the opportunity to provide guidance to students in multiple ways. I helped incoming freshman in the Introduction to Mechanical Engineering classes as a Teaching Assistant and also as a grader. I made sure to provide clear feedback on all homework assignments to ensure that students were steered the right direction.

As a teaching assistant, I would assist the professor in proctoring exams so I have a lot of experience interacting with students and being able to adapt to different situations.

Before college, I spent two years tutoring at Kumon Learning Center in high school where I would teach younger elementary school children Math and Reading. As I go forward, I'd like to continue to share the knowledge I have and help people learn.

I also have previous
experience tutoring online and have multiple students learn the fundamentals of the subject they wanted to understand. I look forward to working with you!
