5 years ago, I started an unexpected and atypical journey into the world of computer science. As a self-taught developer, I'm familiar with the many struggles that come with learning how to code. I'm also appreciative of the many rewards that it brings!

Even if you're not planning to enter a STEM discipline, learning how to code and gaining exposure to concepts in computer science will give you access to a unique set of tools that will help you to excel in any domain.

I spent 3 years as a Computer Science Instructor with a nonprofit organization providing instruction and professional development for people of all ages, working to increase computer science exposure in public schools. The one concept that I always stress in my instruction is:

Computer science is not the study of computers. It's the study of problems, whether they can be solved, and how best we can solve them.

If you've ever had a problem you wanted to solve but didn't know where to start, learning to code can teach

I've had about 3 lessons with Amrita so far and she's really great. Accounting topics that professors talk about in class that can be hard at times Amrita breaks down and makes it really easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and you can definitely depend on her to teach you and help you in every way. I highly recommend her!!! :)

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 10 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other, and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals!

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.

Illustrator is an essential tool for any designer as Its vector focused format give it very little competition. Logos, minimalist art, and designs that are to be animated are a just a few areas that I would only use illustrator for. It is a difficult tool that when used well, can create some of the most appealing images a designer can create. With over 5 years of experience, I have developed a strong foundation with Illustrator. My lessons will focus on the aspects of Illustrator that separate it from other adobe products. My main specialty is Logos, Landscapes, and Pre-Production Animations. If you are interested feel free to message me anytime!

What is JavaScript? The Mystery of This Programming Language Unveiled
