I've been studying computer science for 7+ years, and have tutored at the high school and undergraduate level. In the first class, we will discuss your goals and what you hope to take away from the classes, and customize a plan for your best interests. I specialize in theoretical computer science, combinatorics, graph theory, and discrete math, and typically either follow a textbook in a specific topic, or generate problems and exercises to work through with the student.

Specifically for computer programming, upon discussion with the student, we will be focusing on one or more programming languages including Python, C/C++, Rust, Java, HTML/CSS, Julia, or others. In terms of theoretical material, I roughly follow the well-known Introduction to Algorithms by Cormen, Leiserson, Rivets, and Stein (CLRS). I help improve algorithmic thinking and design through hands-on learning with example projects, along with exercises and problems to improve mathematical maturity.

I try to design my ...

I'm a self-taught programmer and have about a year's worth of experience under my belt working with Python 3 and Java. I'm Codecademy certified and am still learning every day! I'm currently capable of teaching and helping people code at a beginner's level.

About Denali

I'm new to tutoring, but I've been told I'm good at explaining things, and I have enough experience with coding to help beginners, so I thought I'd give it a try!

Private Computer Programming Teacher

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in high-frequency trading and autonomous vehicles/machine learning.

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 ...

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
