About Todd
Hello! My name is Todd. I've been playing music for most of my life. My first instrument was a Casio keyboard when I was about ten years old but I moved over to guitar as a teenager and fell in love with it. I recently graduated from Webster University with a BA in music after receiving an AA in guitar performance at SWIC. In college, I learned everything from music theory to conducting as well as playing in the guitar ensemble, jazz ensemble and so on. After music school, I went through a computer coding program at LaunchCode where I learned python and java and built my own application for booking bands. Over the years I have played in a handful of bands in the St. Louis music scene but in January I moved to Portland, OR and am hoping to meet some friendly people here. I look forward to hearing from you.

Todd is wonderful! The lessons are always a combination of fun and challenging. I'm so engrossed in the lesson, 60 minutes just go right by. He's so patient and calm and encouraging, an ideal personality for a teacher.
Would highly recommend lessons with Todd to anyone who wishes to learn ukulele!

I learned exactly what I needed to know within our planned lesson time; Jean Marc made this possible by planning with me in advance specific learning objectives. And he was available when I needed him (a big plus). I will definitely book another lesson, and highly recommend him!

About Bill L.

Close
Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I have also studied machine learning/artificial intelligence academically 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 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!

Bill is very patient and breaks the material down in a simple way to understand. He's helpful and motivating. With his help, I was better able to understand my assignments and class material. Before his help, I was very confused about java concepts. I would definitely recommend him as a programming tutor!

About Gerardo M.

Poway, CA
View Full Profile

I have mentored over 50 students in 20+ different subjects. I have experience with grades 4th to 12th, undergraduates, graduate students, and industry professionals.

I guarantee improvement in your understanding of the material starting from our first lesson together. I am committed to my students' success!

About Gerardo
My name is Gerardo M. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. I am a STEM-focused tutor that specializes in teaching all levels of math (AP included), science, academic test prep, and college level classes. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to communicate with my students. I identify areas that need improvement and figure out where the fundamental disconnect between the material and my student's understanding of it exists. In addition to tutoring, I have 7 years of experience in technology startups in the semiconductors and consumer electronics industries.

My philosophy is to teach my students to learn by intuition and logic rather than memorization. I emphasize teaching the fundamentals to build up a strong foundation of understanding. I believe this approach produces superior l
ong-term learning and enables my students to continue succeeding later in life.

Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!

Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!

· AP Calculus · In studio
Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

Hey you! I know programming can seem really difficult or scary, I was there too not so long ago. It doesn’t have to be if you are willing and able to ask for help and, YOU are here so YOU are able to break down those mental barriers. We all can understand most concepts if they are broken down for us enough that we can follow the process at hand!

During our sessions together, we will use my palm-sized-globe (PSG) strategy to learn each new concept. With this strategy, any aspect that isn't crystal clear to you, we will stop, and I encourage you to stop me at any time, rotate the globe, and I will offer you an explanation of the concept from another perspective.

Whether you want to improve your coding skills, learn how to automate processes, get into a coding bootcamp, deal with large data sets, create websites to build up your portfolio, or ace your classes, I will be there to help you succeed.

My objectives are focused on you, your education, your future and your career and ...

Casey is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and able to break down concepts into easy-to-understand language. In addition to teaching the general steps to writing code, he is able to present real-world applications in a wide variety of scientific disciplines for each example.

I highly recommend Casey for teaching Python, and programming in general.
