Web Development/Programming Tutor -- first session free (oakland north / temescal)

Offering

If you are having trouble understanding programming concepts for classes at a school or bootcamp, want some help learning to program on your own time, or would like some assistance on a personal software development project, shoot me an email with your availability and any questions.

My first hour session is always free (and no commitment to further sessions is necessary) to make sure I am a good fit for your learning style. After that, I charge $150/hour (discounts available for multi-hour sessions). Sessions will be at the East Bay Community Space at Telegraph and 55th (I will cover the cost of your access to their coworking space). If you want to learn, but you're not sure you can afford weekly sessions, let me know -- it is often possible to provide lesson resources to work on that will fill the time between more sparse session schedules (every-other-weekly, etc.).

If you can't afford to pay for lessons at all, I'm happy to offer that one free lesson regardless and answer some questions or help give you some guidance for how to try learning on your own.

Experience

I've been programming for 10 years and teaching programming for 4 years as a private tutor, a teacher at Dev Bootcamp, and a volunteer with RailsBridge, ElmBridge, and Techtonica. I can provide links to student reviews of my teaching work on request.

Language-wise, I have worked primarily with HTML, CSS, Ruby, JavaScript, Elm, and Elixir. In terms of tools and frameworks, I have experience with Rails, Sinatra, Phoenix, and Node with Express for back-end web frameworks, The Elm Architecture, jQuery, and React on the front-end and Electron for building desktop applications. Though those tools are where I have the greatest depth and breadth of knowledge, I have experience providing assistance working with many other languages and frameworks as well. Feel free to ask if there are specific tools you're interested in and I will tell you if I think I'd be able to teach them well or not.
