Available Tutoring:

  • Programming - I can teach individual languages such as Python, Javascript, C++ and really any language. In terms of activities, I can teach website development, video game creation, robotics, and a whole bunch of other neat stuff! So if you have an interest in technology in any capacity, let me know and we can talk about it! 
    • I’m very easy to get along with and approachable. Usually people don’t have issues talking to me about tech, code, or just their lives, which I think helps the teacher-student relationship alot.
    • Furthermore, I am a professional in tech and work as an engineer during the day. This means I can teach you things that real-life engineers use as part of their work and the best coding practices 
    • Finally, I always try my best to find something that you like to do in tech! Coding can be really boring honestly, so I always try to help you find an interest and passion within the sphere and help you expand upon it!
