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 undergraduat
e 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.

Available to teach programming.

About William
I am math teacher, father and grandfather. I start tutoring when I was in high school and then graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics in the late seventies. Later I earned a master's degr
ee in engineering. I have taught for decades and I also had the opportunity to work as an engineer and programmer over the course of two decades. I now teach part time at colleges and tutor part time.

I teach grade school through college and the approach I use has been very helpful for students who have had trouble in math. I have students write the steps with words instead of just working examples.

A student recently wrote:

Mr. Diss took my hardest subject and broke it down so it was easier to understand. He shows clear examples of how to the problems and if I didn’t understand something he was quick to respond to my emails. I honestly have to say that this is the first time in my life I felt like I could truly understand math and not just hope to scrape by.

Do you want to program but are afraid to try because you're not a technical-minded analytical thinker? Let's work together and I'll show you that you already have what it takes to understand programming fundamentals and start down the path of becoming a developer.

Ruby is the PERFECT language to start out in development because it's easy to read/write, easy to understand, yet powerful enough to build robust applications. I love teaching people Ruby because nothing gets in the way of those "Aha!" moments when something finally clicks. If you're at all interested in programming, I would HIGHLY recommend getting started with Ruby. People talk a lot about which language is a good first language for programmers, and I firmly believe that the best language is the one that gets out of the way of understanding the core concepts and fundamentals of programming. You don't get this with Javascript, Java, Python, or any others. Even seasoned developers come back again and again because ...

About Dana
Not sure you have the brain or the background to be a world-class developer? Sick of your current job and dying to try something creative, challenging, and rewarding, all in an industry that's growing
? I know exactly how you feel, because I was there too and I have seen and helped dozens of people break into software development with confidence and a clearer understanding of the skills involved.

I specialize in Ruby on Rails, which is a web framework that incorporates the Ruby programming language, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and database technologies--all of which you can learn quickly and master. I have been a professional Rails developer for over three years and a web developer for seven years. My background in teaching English abroad, as well as software support and mentoring developers makes it easy for me to adapt to your level of knowledge, your pace of learning, and most importantly, your STYLE of learning.

I came from a non-technical background and thought for sure that I was too "right-brained" to do this work, so I know that the struggle is real. More than anything else, I want you to know that If you are interested in programming and you are willing to work hard to understand the tools involved, then you already have what it takes. Let's get started!

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 Mechanica
l 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!
