I love programming and working with computers as much as I love teaching others to code. From making my first few games to participating in programming competitions in Spain, Switzerland and Hong Kong, and having a chance to work in world-renowned companies such as J.P. Morgan and Skyscanner, I know that programming is what I want to do in the long term.
I seek to equip students with the necessary coding skills to not only do well in school, but to also be able to unleash c...
Before the sessions, I gather material about the previous/upcoming class in order to identify any difficult parts the student may have, and to also estimate how much time completion of tasks should take.
I always intend to make session student-led: for programming questions, I inspire the student to talk about their train of thought, what they think of the problem and how they would approach it, giving them hints and leading them on the correct path. I am very cautious about giving plain solutions without inspiring the student to think critically. For theory/bookwork questions, I follow a similar style where the student leads the conversation while I fill in the missing gaps.
For assessing progress, I would either check on the completion of class coursework, or attempt to solve problems from relevant exam papers. Although I know performing in class may be a top priority, I also seek to inspire the student to be creative and to make interesting things in their own time.
