I work as a software developer by day and have a lot of experience teaching beginner programming and data analytics! For children wanting to get an intro into programming, I like to teach using Scratch, put together by MIT for kids under 16, to teach programming and logic while being able to create interactive cartoons and games! I can also teach general beginners programming concepts, python, data analytics with python, and basic web development with HTML and JavaScript for all ages.

About Marina K.

Hi! I'm Marina and I look forward to possibly working with you!

I am a software developer by day, dog enthusiast by night.

Math/Computer Programming:
I have been teaching subjects in math and programming for over 5 years, I was a frequent tutor and teaching assistant throughout college while getting my combined degree in math and computer science. I specialize in python development and teaching young children. One of my favorite jobs I've ever had was teaching programming in Scratch to kids aged 5-13 and designing curriculums to keep them engaged and excited.

Violin:
I have been playing the violin since I was in third grade and took private lessons through middle school. Starting when I was 15, I began teaching private lessons to local elementary schoolers in my area and went on to teach privately at a music school over the summers. I've taught kids just starting out on both piano and violin and have a lot of experience in teaching how to read and interpret music.

I am definitely not a professional violinist playing in orchestras currently! But I always believed that learning the violin and practicing every day for years was an instrumental part (no pun intended) in shaping my career, both academically and professionally. An instrument is such an important character builder. Life lessons from learning how to work at something you're passionate about, to patience and self-acceptance when you can't play something the first time you try, even to teamwork and learning to be a part of something bigger (an orchestra). These are all skills I learned from growing up with the violin and my goal is to ensure your child learns them too.
