Perfect! Before I met Nikolay I did not have any coding background and I was fascinated by the idea of creating my own website.
Nikolay has managed to explain to me the fundamentals of web development in a very simple and interactive way which encouraged me to continue doing web development! He found the perfect way to approach me so I can understand what I am doing.
If it was not for Nikolay and his passion to teach I do not think I would have managed to get into programming or web development.
I've used Nick's services when I ran into an issue with my website. It was a custom CSS-related thing that I wasn't able to resolve myself, so I needed some help. Nikolay did a great job! He's very knowledgeable in his field and his approach is excellent, so thanks to the lessons with him, not only I was able to resolve my issue, but now I feel much more confident to customise my website even further. I highly recommend him!
Nick has proven to be a tremendous help for me and my Computer Science course. He has given me accurate advice and help with React Native, Python, Java and C. I'd recommend him to anyone that is struggling with them, as he is really knowledgeable!
Nikolay is an incredibly informative tutor, who has taught me all the fundamentals of coding with python. Prior to starting lessons I didn’t have an adequate understanding of coding, however Nikolay’s explainations allowed the study to seem less daunting
I've been going to Nikolay for some time now, he's been great so far at explaining stuff that are too hard for me, I've been able also learn new stuff easiear than on my own and faster. All in all pretty good tutor.
