Computer Science student teaching you how to code! Including Web development, desktop applications and even game design!

Methodology

I believe in mixing practical and theory tasks instead of teaching them separately, because I believe the two are learnt better together as you can do something and then learn why what you just did works. I believe in doing to learn, therefore I believe the best way to learn how to code is to do code so I structure my lessons around that.

Background

I am a computer science student and am going on to do a degree in Computer Science at Royal Holloway. I am also an experienced programmer and first started about 5 years ago. I am familiar with most web design technologies, extensive JavaScript and Node.js knowledge and some other server technologies. I also know Java and Visual Basic.

I have been tutoring for 2 years now and I have had many students in the past, I work for a company called Explore Learning and do private tutoring on the side.

John was super helpful when he taught me maths and computer science. He took it at my pace (which honestly was quite slow), but he never got frustrated and now I completely understand the stuff he taught me. Thank you so much!!!
