Software engineer with experience in high-frequency trading and autonomous vehicles/machine learning

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or trying to change careers, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike. As a result, most of my students get comfortable with programming after 4-6 sessions, and become more independent in programming, being able to troubleshoot issues with their own code. For intermediate developers, I can tailor my lessons to your specific goals, and focus on more engineering topics, such as software architecture, design patterns, performance/efficiency/scalability considerations, and interacting with external components, such as hardware/networking/operating systems/databases. In addition, I can help with technical whiteboard interviews, having extensive experience on both sides of the interview table. I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly. I am a quant analyst in the HFT realm, so if trading stocks and options is something you are interested in, either as a casual side hobby project or for a career, let me know!
About Bill L.

I have always been a self-studier 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. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best at teaching a subject. This is where I can help. My lessons are never generic, and caters exactly to my students' needs and goals. I value the importance of understanding, rather than memorization. P.S. I am a quant analyst in the competitive high frequency trading industry, doing research and programming algorithmic trading strategies to buy and sell stocks/options, using math and statistics, and developing low latency platforms using programming. So I really appreciate the real usefulness of academics in the real world. I am also very open about what I do, so feel free to ask me anything about it!

BIll is very knowledgeable, intelligent, and patient. I would recommend him to anyone learning Python. He will get you started and keep you going much more quickly than self-learning.
