I am a professional web developer and currently employed as a teaching assistant at Southern Methodist University Coding Boot Camp class where i teach several students web programming for both front-end and back-end development for approx 24 weeks.

I first began writing code in 2003 when i graduated from Belgium I.T. Varsity and have worked at several companies doing web design, development ,search engine optimizations and also some online marketing / data analytics.

I have taught a lot of people how to code,some who never had any hope and thought that it was something too difficult for them to learn.Once we learn the fundamentals ,and after a few weeks of taking lessons together, students begin to realize how approachable and fun coding can be.This is the moment where i smile and be glad that i have been able to give my students the confidence they need in order to unleash their potential and create amazing things!.

The industry is fast paced and there is a lot of things that may change fast.My job is to make sure that all my students are learning the most relevant and in-demand skills that can help them to achieve their goals.Whether you are interested in learning to code in order to get employment, start a business, or just as a hobby, the skills that we will learn together are applicable and i bring a lot of experience as teaching is what i do for a living ,so you can be assured that you are getting some solid material with every lesson we go through.

My teaching style involves focusing on my individual students needs and then working on the areas that i find need more practice to make sure they grasp those concepts.I am able to teach students of all different ages, backgrounds and experience levels because patience is the key and once we establish a rhythm that we both like, the lessons get easier and much more fun as we get along.

Many people have a misconception that coding is for very smart individuals who are mathematics geniuses and love working with numbers or complex algorithms and the like.This couldn't be more further from the truth,and anyone can learn how to write elegant code once they are taught how to do it steadily i.e step by step

I encourage you to take a few lessons with me and i promise i will teach you the skills you need to become a great programmer.We will face some challenges and we will learn how to overcome them together,and this is how everyone learns to be a master at coding.Thank you for reading and see you in our first lesson together!
