I use illustrations and fun (OK, crazy) stories to make the concepts well understood. No "techno-babble" (OK, maybe a little: just the required amount to qualify as a true geek :).

My goal is tailored to your specific need. Job interview prep? School help? Just want to see if programming is for you? That's what we'll learn.

About Rodney B.

Hi I'm Rodney and I've loved programming since after I got out of high school. When was that? A long, long time ago.

I offer three unique perspectives:

1.) I use illustrations and stories that teach and show how programming concepts reflect the real world (and so aid in retention and understanding as they get more complex)

2.) I show the practical and pragmatic face of software (and unmask the un-pragmatic stuff) and

3.) I offer a keen understanding of the evolution and journey technology has taken and where it is today. Beyond concepts I share my expertise in Microsoft .NET, C# and JavaScript/HTML/CSS.

I adapt my approach to both the individual and age. As with my own daughter, I teach without condescension; treating all like adults (so to speak).

I look forward to working with you to show how exciting and fun (and powerful) programming is. Whether making a Grocery List App for your family or spamming your best friend with 1000 emails or preparing for your first job: It's the "joy of creation"!
