With over a decade of teaching experience, I know how to explain concepts. Learning coding requires writing code. I have experience with Java and Python. We can go over your class examples and learn "if, else" statements, loops, arrays and lists, dictionaries and tuples, and using documentation. I will translate the words of your instructor to plain English that can be broken down and understood at a fundamental level. I recently got an A on a final exam for a course on Java at an accredited university. I finished the Coursera program from the University of Michigan on coding for Python. I used to run a chess nonprofit and developed a curriculum. I'm currently studying electrical engineering and computer science.

About Ben R.

Learning coding requires making the jump from plain English to binary, 0's and 1's. When you write code, you speak in a language made for a virtual instrument called a compiler. This instrument then translates your specific syntax and language into 0's and 1's. The compiler sends the message to the Computer Processing Unit and the machine reads your instructions. We can work on "if" and "else" statements, for and while loops, arrays and lists, dictionaries and tuples, and common programming problems such as the Leap Year question or the Fibonacci Number. Imagine you're running a loop in one direction, imagine moving to a second dimension, and then a third. This is the type of creativity and problem solving skills you'll need to succeed in your class. Let's tell the problems on your homework assignment, "checkmate."

Tutor admittingly did not know java and was unable to help. Tutor had poor internet connection as well and was constantly disconnecting. Tutor advised us to ask for a refund which we will request on Monday when they open.
