I use MySQL and SQL Server regularly. I can help you design and setup a database. If you have an existing database, I can help you design and execute queries. We can go over when it is appropriate to use a database and when other methods might suffice or be more appropriate.

About Casey G.

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 because I take that very seriously, I prefer to give you a free consultation (up to 30 min) to help you decide if we are going to be the right fit for each other. I am truly excited to speak with you and can’t wait to get started working with you to achieve your goals!

Casey is a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to any other students. His explanations are clear, concise and target specific areas of student’s difficulty. I was honored to be his student and would do it again if I needed to take another class.

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.
