Yo!

If you're reading this, you probably think you're out of ideas.

You've tried figuring it out on your own.

You've tried Googling and Stack Overflowing for what seems like several hours now.

You've gotten distracted and watched your 3rd video on Youtube about how people that must be way smarter than you are enjoy their free snacks at cushy software engineering jobs and just thought, "This is way too hard for me. I'm not meant for this."

First, breathe. Relax. You're going to be okay.

I've been in your exact shoes. I've gone through the same struggles you've been through. And now after around 4 years of being a professional developer, I'm the CTO of a startup, and yes, the money is pretty good.

It is my belief that anyone can learn how to code. They just need the right teacher. The teacher who can simplify advanced topics so that a 5 year old can understand. The teacher who not just helps you on 1 problem, but gives you the mental models to solve your next 100 problems.

I'm not just an engineer. I have been teaching my whole life, from elementary school students to adults, on topics like the SAT as well as programming. I am deeply passionate about making hard things easy to understand. Seeing my students smile as they finally "get" a new idea never fails to make my day.

Tell you what, if you are interested, send me a message, and we can have a chat!
