I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or trying to change careers, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike. As a result, most of my students get comfortable with programming after 4-6 sessions, and become more independent in programming, being able to troubleshoot issues with their own code.

For intermediate developers, I can tailor my lessons to your specific goals, and focus on more engineering topics, such as software architecture, design patterns, performance/efficiency/scalability considerations, and interacting with external components, such as hardware/networking/operating systems/databases. In addition, I can help with technical whiteboard interviews, having extensive experience on both sides of the interview table.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for ...

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Absolutely amazing! I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.
Erin
Helped me with Introductory Physics 1 and 2! Really helped me understand the material rather than just doing the problems for me! Great tutoring!
Angela
Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

Hey you! I know programming can seem really difficult or scary, I was there too not so long ago. It doesn’t have to be if you are willing and able to ask for help and, YOU are here so YOU are able to break down those mental barriers. We all can understand most concepts if they are broken down for us enough that we can follow the process at hand!

During our sessions together, we will use my palm-sized-globe (PSG) strategy to learn each new concept. With this strategy, any aspect that isn't crystal clear to you, we will stop, and I encourage you to stop me at any time, rotate the globe, and I will offer you an explanation of the concept from another perspective.

Whether you want to improve your coding skills, learn how to automate processes, get into a coding bootcamp, deal with large data sets, create websites to build up your portfolio, or ace your classes, I will be there to help you succeed.

My objectives are focused on you, your education, your future and your career and ...

You can expect catered lessons best suited to your goals. I'm eager to meet everyone where they're at in their math background and to help build them up to where they'd like to be, whether that be for school, or other goals. I've worked with students from various backgrounds, understanding levels, and enthusiasm levels for math.

I will put in the effort to identify the exact point of confusion on a topic, and directly address the matter. No one has the same ways of learning and understanding, and I cater my lessons to each individual student to best serve them!

In addition to my college education, I have attended a data science and machine learning immersive which equipped me with essential coding and computing skills! I also have experience working with machine learning app deployment, data based web visualizations, and more!

About Mehika

I'm currently a senior at Yale studying Sociology with Statistics & Data Science. I have a strong background in machine learning and statistics. Through high school, I tutored my peers and other students of all ages in various STEM subjects. I'm eager to meet everyone where they're at in their math

Super beneficial for my SAT prep - Mehika really helped me not only learn but fully understand the algebra/calculus I needed for both class and the SAT. She breaks down the material into easy to understand sections and fully ensures each topic is understood before moving on. She made me feel comfortable when I had questions and never made lessons feel like she was rushed.
Rachel
Mehika is an incredible tutor. Her background in math and computer sciences is highly advanced, but she was able to help make incredibly complex concepts seem super simple. I understood more in our sessions than I did watching hours of online lecture material. I recommend Mehika's services for anyone at any point of their math journey.

Private Python Lessons Near You

Primarily used for web development and application development, Python is a multi-usage programming language. It features dynamic, integrated semantics. Thanks to its dynamic binding and typing capabilities, it's widely used for rapid-application building or development.

Python's syntax aims for readability, making it simple to learn and great collaboration. Python also supports packages and modules. Python saves programmers loads of time by making it easy to recycle code into new programs. For these reasons and others, Python's one of the most widely used coding languages. 

Why Sign Up for Python Classes?

Python's one of the best coding scripts for beginners to learn. As mentioned above, it's specifically designed to read easily, which makes it simple to absorb.

...

Python's tools are also available to everyone at no cost. So, anyone with an interest in learning how to code can dip their toes in for free! 

Since Python's widely used for web and application development, including mobile applications, demand for Python programmers increases every day. Those who learn Python and reach a professional level of proficiency will have plenty of opportunities to work for a variety of businesses and non-profits developing mobile apps, games, web applications, and more! 

The opportunities for Python programmers abound. NASA even uses Python for programming the equipment and machinery they send to space. If you've ever dreamed of programming out-of-this-world applications, Python's for you!

The Best Way to Learn Python and What You'll Study in Lessons

Although you can find plenty of free Python classes and video tutorials online, the best way to learn how to program with Python is with private lessons. In private classes, you'll learn one-on-one with an expert. You'll receive personalized instruction, immediate feedback, and your teacher's undivided attention — benefits that simply aren't possible in a larger class setting or with online videos. This will keep you motivated and interested. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Private teachers customize each class to meet the student's unique needs. For example, Python classes for children differ in terms of teaching methods and content from Python lessons for adults. You'll work on the aspects of programming with which you need the most assistance and improve quickly, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Python

If you're new to programming or have some programming experience, but have never before studied Python, then beginner lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll be introduced to the basics of programming with Python. Your teacher will first talk with you about your existing knowledge of programming to determine where to begin and devise the perfect syllabus for you. In beginner lessons, you might cover the following topics:

  • Select a version of Python and install it 
  • Introduction to the Python shell
  • Learn the Python coding primitives including variables, built-in data types, comments, semantics, and syntax
  • Understanding how to use data types strings, lists, dictionaries, tuples, and numbers (integers, complex numbers, and floats)

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Python

If you're already familiar with the basics of Python, then intermediate lessons are right for you. In these courses, your python teacher will help you improve your coding skills. You'll learn new concepts, techniques, and challenge yourself to write increasingly complex programs. In intermediate lessons, you might study the following topics:

  • Learn to manipulate data types with operators, functions, and data type methods
  • Get used to working within IDLE and find a good code editor
  • Use Python's third-party modules and packages
  • Practice writing increasingly complex programs

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Python

Advanced lessons are intended for students with a solid background in Python. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to expand your knowledge, skillset, and capabilities while working with a Python programming expert. In these courses, you can improve your coding techniques and learn new approaches. The subjects taught in advanced lessons depend greatly on the student's individual interests, but your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • System programming
  • Mathematics and numerical computing
  • Graph theory and databases
  • Computer science
