Mariia is professional, punctual, and a good piano teacher. My daughter is learning so much, so fast! I've talked to other moms of similarly aged children, and their kids took much longer to be able to play with two hands. I attribute this to Mariia's teaching skills. Thanks Mariia!

Taking classes for Linear Algebra with Ms. Akanksha was really helpful in my academics. In class I was really feeling left out as I could not understand the language. Akanksha has helped me a lot not only with the academics but with my accent so that I feel comfortable in class now. She is great person and shows great patience while teaching

I have taken classes from Akanksha. She is really good at teaching Mathematics. Her style of explaining is really different and I had a great experience being her student.

I have a M.S. degree in Computer Science from Stanford University. Additionally, I have worked in the computer field my whole career as a programmer, engineer and project manager.
Java is a great language to learn Object Oriented programming concepts. It is also the language of choice for many university Computer Science Programs including Rutgers.
I have helped many Rutgers students with their coursework for courses such as Introduction to Computer Programming and Data Structures. I work with each student in as much depth and detail as required to ensure they come away with a better understand of Java and Object Oriented programming in general.

If you look me up on the web, you will find that I am a principal artist on the world's great opera and concert stages. Such a career is only possible by working with the very best people. Finding the right teachers and coaches is almost an art in-and-of-itself. Patrick, is most assuredly one of those teachers. His knowledge of the computer and several challenging disciplines is unmatched in that he knows how to convey that knowledge. I not only learned from him, I enjoyed my lessons.

Jean definitely has the heart of a teacher as he explained everything in the simplest form to make it easier to understand. He answered every question with a thorough answer and made sure that I knew what I was doing before he got off the phone. I would definitely recommend him!

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I am also currently attending a top 10 computer science Masters program at Georgia Tech specializing in machine learning/artificial intelligence to fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

Bill is superb at making difficult concepts easy! One particular problem I always had trouble understanding is calculating volume of revolutions using the cylindrical method. He drew a diagram explaining intuitively why the formula worked and it just clicked.
