I am a very patient and flexible teacher, and I think that the best way to learn is to work on challenges that are interesting to the student.
I don't like copy-pasting teaching methods. Instead, I believe that the most effective way to learn programming (or anything, really) is to understand every step of the process and to apply the acquired knowledge to new projects.
As a result, and depending on the student's starting level, I offer different methods:
(Beginner) Step by step exercises to understand programming core principles. These include fun challenges like programming your own small games or apps.
(Intermediate) Help the student create a small project based on the student's interests. The student does most of the work outside of tutoring hours, and during tutoring hours we work through the more challenging bits.
(Advanced) Help debugging existing projects and consulting for starting more ambitious projects. The main goal in this case is to teach the student to think through potential solutions critically and to master the art of getting unblocked using the internet.
I studied Computer Science at Harvard for my undergraduate degree.
During my undergrad degree I helped my classmates with the coursework, and I taught friends who were interested in programming what I learnt.
Once I graduated, I worked for 6 years as a software engineer, first in startups in Silicon Valley (San Francisco), and later for the Argentine National Government in the Open Data department (I am Argentine and can offer lessons in Spanish, too).
I have now finished a Masters degree at UCL in Smart Cities and Urban Analytics. I have vast experience in data storage, analysis, and visualization as well.
Perfect! Pili was super professional and helpful. Would recommend!
Perfect! Pili is an all rounded programmer, straddling across languages which has been ideal for me as I was looking at understanding how to code in Python and HTML based library. More importantly she’s also a natural at teaching where she’s taking you through methods (concepts) with examples when a task it hand instead of only writing the code.
I’d highly recommend Pili for anyone who wants to learn how to code - she’s a great teacher !
Darshie is a dedicated student who is eager and learns very quickly. She is very bright and understands new concepts incredibly fast. I would recommend her as a student without a doubt.
Perfect! Pili was an amazing tutor - she was very patient and broke down complex problems into very simple solutions. She was also able to explain everything very clearly and in a lot of detail. She is clearly very knowledgeable about computer science and I would 100% recommend her to anyone who needs tutoring. Her level of enthusiasm while teaching will make anyone become more engaged and even passionate about the topic.
Cami, Natan's girlfriend, is a wonderful student. She is keen to learn, asks relevant questions, pays a lot of attention, is a very fast learner, doesn't get frustrated in the face of a daunting task, understands that learning is all about patience, and appreciates the effort that goes into tutoring. Additionally, she is a pleasure to be around. All around, I couldn't have asked for a better student.
Pili is my daughter and I have to say she's the absolute best, she's always been -star student, committed worker, passionate field hockey player, loving daughter and sister, generous and reliable friend.
I've always struggled with technology and she's always there to make things easy, no matter how difficult the terms, topics or procedures may be, she always finds a way to explain herself and let others understand, with patience and support. She's been teaching for quite a while now, and she always gets great compliments!
I’ve known Pili for over a decade. She’s an absolute star - knowledgeable, passionate, and a great teacher!
As my teammate, Pili has taught me about everything from Argentine hockey skills to the World Bank, and every time she teaches me a lesson, she is patient, captivating, and engaged. She takes the time to understand me, and in turn she can explain things to me in a way she knows I will fully understand. And she is so much fun! I could not recommend someone more highly.
