About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!
I believe the best way to teach is to make it simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.
-------- QUALITY FIRST --------
Everybody wants the best. I believe quality is the most important. I also believe each person is unique, therefore each student should have tailored lessons.
-------- HAPPY TEACHING --------
Teaching should be a positive and fun experience. I believe in a personalized and genuine approach. In my experience the benefits are enormous: we save a lot of time, energy, and since it is way more suited to the student, we are more efficient = happy! Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

-------- PHOTOGRAPHY --------
Photography has been my full-time job since 2003. I am a 34-year-old French-American man living and working
in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +16 years of expertise as a professional photographer. Recent clients include Porsche Minneapolis, Taste of the NFL, Medal of Honor Convention Twin Cities, and Women's Leadership Trust Forum. I will be your teacher today.

-------- WHY THE MOVE TO THE USA? --------
I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14. They all are musicians or artists.

-------- MY FRENCH HERITAGE --------
From 1995 to 2002 I primarily I studied French literature, English literature, and German, and even Russian for 3 years when I was in high school in France.

I was born in France so the language is my mother's tongue. My parents are Monique and Alain, typical French names. I have an older brother (Frédéric) and a younger sister (Johanna) who lives in Québec, Canada now. I do not practice German and Russian at the moment but I am a specialist of French language. If you want to test my French here I am!

-------- LE TEST FRANÇAIS: BIEN, OU QUOI ? --------
Comme on dit en français: "quand on me cherche on me trouve !" Le français, on l'appelle aussi la langue de Molière par opposition à l'anglais qui est la langue de Shakespeare.
Le français c'est facile car il suffit de pratiquer souvent avec un bon prof' qui sait ce qu'il fait. Et voilà les amis c'est comme ça qu'on doit bien faire les choses en bonne et due forme ! Y'a pas d'secret vous pigez le truc on quoi? Si tu es d'accord dis-moi oui oui hoche de la tête mon ami ! Alors, tranquille le chat? T'inquiète biquette ? Ça roule ma poule ?

-------- MY PASSION FOR SOCIAL WORK --------
In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of nonprofit organization Association Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.

Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak, we have people from +14 countries working together towards that goal.

I know the organization well since I have been working with them since 2012 in France, India, Serbia, and now in the USA!
I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It is called Universal Peace Centre • SUNYOGA AMERICA.

-------- GLORIOUS CONCLUSION ABOUT TEACHING --------
Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you for your trust and friendship.

Wishing us all best success, peaceful, blissful, healthy, and enlightened life.
Merci! Gratitude.

I was unsure if I wanted to go back to school. I was unsatisfied at my job and I didn't know what to do next. Jocelyn was great in that she listened to me but allowed me to make up my own mind. She had a lot of experience as a student and as an educator. She helped me to pick the right program, school, and prepare me for the GRE. i'm now enrolled in a program I love and I look forward to graduating and going into my new career.

About Stacy
Hi, my name is Stacy! For 4 years, I pursued a BS in Computer Science as part of my goal to become a video game developer. I received the Stephen P. Hepler Academic Award in Computer Science, the most prestigious award in the CS Department at Wayne State University. However, before I could finish my degree, I injured my hands from typing too much. During my recovery, I discovered that I really enjoyed helping others learn programming. My world has never been the same.

For the past 4 years, I've been mentoring students for the online code-learning organization Udacity. I've provided feedback on student projects, assisted students on the discussion forum, and worked with students 1-on-1 in video and text chats. Through these, I've helped thousands of students with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Python for Udacity's Front-End Nanodegree and I
ntro to Programming Nanodegree programs. Because of my experience, I've also assisted in training and advising other mentors at Udacity.

How would tutoring work? First, I want to know what you want to do and what your goals are. From there, I'll make lesson plans that help you work toward those goals. If you're not quite sure about what direction you want to go, that's OK, too. I'll help you figure it out.

That said, I empathize with my students in their struggles. I'm not going to talk over your head, instead working to break down complex topics to make them easy and fun to understand. Also, I'll help you shoot down those doubts you have about your own abilities. I want you to realize that if you can put in the time and the effort to do something, you really can pull it off!

So what do you say? Feel free to reach out with any questions!

About Reza
Greetings,

My name's Reza. So my bio won't be the typical programmers bio, as I'm not a typical programmer. I find that people choose to work with someone whom they like. Thus, I’ll get into a bit about me, my life, and my story into coding so you can understand a little about who I am.

I really wasn't supposed to become a programmer. While I was a little geeky and played video games, I generally was pretty extroverted and hung out with a lot of people and went to parties growing up. I never saw myself as someone super ‘intelligent’. I thought I was smart, yes, but definitely not a techie. I didn't think I was a ‘nerd' either. So if I wasn't a nerd, how'd I be able to learn something so technical? Because only nerds would and could learn programming and IT, right?? Or so I thought at the time.

I originally planned to become
a psychologist because I was fascinated by how the mind worked and wanted to figure it out as well as help people figure out their own minds in order to be successful in any area of life they wanted to be. This passion stemmed from a young age of 13 when I received a book on how to be a confident man and attract women. See, someone from my video game clan in warcraft 3(I mentioned I was a geek) ended up sending me this e-book that changed my life. My interest in personal development began around dating and meeting women, and then shifted to becoming the best version of myself I could be. I began self-teaching myself social skills, confidence, leadership, body language, positive thinking and transformed myself from a shy geek to someone who could speak in front of a room full of people in a seminar. This ended up leading me to me working as a social dynamics coach at the age of 18 helping men and women obtain power in their social, and dating lives. I coached individuals, ran seminars and helped with the curriculum design.

My love of self-development and coaching drew me towards becoming a psychologist. Even more so, I began dealing with depression and that fueled my fire of wanting to understand what was going on so I could solve the problem. It’s like when you’re dealing with a bug in programming and you have this intense desire to figure out the problem so your application can work! Except this time, the application was my brain and it wasn’t working properly. I ended up being forced to drop everything, school and the job I had, in order to deal with my mental health. It got so bad, I didn't think I'd ever be able to work again. A simple delivery job felt too daunting for me. But, as do all great changes that occur, I began taking full responsibility for my life and began figuring out my health little by little. I put the onus on me to have a healthy mind. I began researching and self-teaching myself about brain-chemistry, and how the brain and mental illness worked. I would use this knowledge to self-tailor a personal treatment plan that let me crawl out of depression and burst back into life. I ended up finished my psychology degree and got to working at an Apple store as a tech specialist. Again, just as with social skills, my ability to self-teach myself a particular skill yielded me tremendous results that changed my life.

Well, that notion would be put to the test a year and a half ago after I visited Colombia. I fell love with the country, and thought to myself, "how can I work and travel at the same time?" I did some research, and found out that programming was a great way to live the digital nomad lifestyle I so desperately wanted. Again, I didn't think I could do it, because, well, I'm not a nerd... or I'm not smart enough...or I'm a 'peoples' person...or I'm a sales guy, not a tech guy....or I'm too old, even if I was only 26(lol)...or I have depression and my mind can't focus on difficult tasks for very long so I should stick to simpler tasks...or *Insert excuse*. Blah blah blah... but, I decided too actually try to programming first before I agreed with any of those excuses I was making in my head. And, then something happened... I don't what it was, but from the moment I wrote my first print statement and I saw something happen in the console, I was hooked. It felt like an addiction. It felt like magic. It felt like I was in control. I felt like this was my ticket to success, freedom, and most importantly, getting my life back to the next level. Even though I felt behind in progress compared to my peers in the field of success/career due to mental illness, I knew programming could be my ticket back on top. It felt like my very own comeback story!

So began my long journey into learning code. And I'll tell you what, immediately the next day, things began getting more difficult and my brain began to hurt in ways it never had before. It felt like it was going to explode out of my head. But, I kept persisting and kept simply staring at the screen and gave my brain no choice but to figure out the problem it was looking at. And low and behold, somehow, someway, I stuck with coding and a year and a half later, I'm working on an appointment setting App to sell to local small businesses. All the meanwhile, getting closer to achieving my digital nomad goal.

Now I'm here, on Wyzant, looking to help others. In the last year and a half, I've made more progress self-teaching then most people do in double that in college. When you're forced to teach yourself, it changes things, because you know the onus is on you. However, getting help from friends who became mentors in coding made a huge difference as I was able to get unstuck on problems that plagued me for hours, days and sometimes weeks. I’m here to help basic students who are just getting into programming as well as intermediate students in Python and Django. I believe what makes me different then other teachers is that I'm someone who wasn't 'supposed' to become a programmer, but I did anyways. I'm very good at self-teaching and ultimately that's how one can speed up their learning time in development as there's so much to learn and you can't just go to a class or a bootcamp and expect to learn everything in the classroom. To me, it's not about how good I am in coding, it's about how good I am at getting the knowledge I have into my student's head that counts. I strive to give my student's the best experience possible. That's where I come in.

About Daniel
I am a web developer that focuses on python. I have graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Computer Science. I have continued to expand my knowledge through online courses and python projects.

I have been a private tutor since 2013. I have a great amount of experience working with a wide variety of students. This makes it simple for me to properly adapt my teaching methods to best fit the student.

I have also been a coding instructor in iDTech for 2 summers, working with students to create a product based on the topic of their choice. The classes range from 3 to 10 students. This range gave me the experience needed to understand and amplify the multiple perspectives a student can have while coding.

An example project I have recently made is a python file that recommends which month it is best to invest in a particular stock. This
program takes in the inputs of stock_sticker, years_in_length, percentage, and increase/decrease and uses them to properly show how many times each month has gone up/ down that percentage.

I currently am continuing my studies as I always will be. I am also working on creating different websites through django to enhance my full stack web development experience.
