I might not be Japanese, but I've been studying it for 8+ years now and have grasped professional fluency of the language. In fact, it may be easier for me to explain things to you as an experienced learner of the subject, as I will be able to guide you through what it takes to reach fluency in this extremely challenging language.

About Julian R.

My name is Julian - I'm an experienced programmer with 4 years of tutoring and teaching experience under my buckle. I founded my own company a little under a year ago because of my love for video games and the continuous drive to make millions of gamers around the world feel the passion in the games my team have been developing.

I look to bring this drive to teaching, which is a passion that I have adored for a while now primarily because of the extensive hours I have spent teaching my two younger siblings all sorts of school work (math, English, social studies, science).

If you want to learn programming from scratch and are looking for someone who can break down seemingly complex concepts into an easily understandable level (adjusted for any age), then pass me a question! I look forward to hearing back from you all :).
