« Perfect! Chris is a super friendly and caring tutor. I have almost zero background in computer science, so he made a personalised teaching plan for me to ease me into this new subject. While our main focus is python, he makes sure that I have some basic computer science background so that I could understand why certain approach would work. This will be helpful if I want to learn a different programming language because they have similar backbone. Chris also leaves me some tasks to solve after class, which I find very helpful. Would highly recommend him to any motivated individual! »

MSc Computer Science graduate seeking to tutor programming in Python or Java. I have also been teaching Mandarin, Chinese so I would also be happy to tutor this subject too.

Methodology

I am friendly and enthusiastic with a lot of energy, and I think this comes out a lot during my classes. I understand how difficult it can be when first starting out to code. I can help you get to grips with some of the fundamental and the more difficult concepts of programming until you have the confidence to go it alone.

I am comfortable teaching beginner to intermediate level Python or Java to all ages.

Some of the more popular topics covered include :

datatypes
variables
operators
data structures
control statements
algorithms
object oriented programmiong (OOP)

My approach to teaching children and adults is quite different. With children, I like to use real-life objects to conceptualize programming concepts. I have found that with the help of pre-prepared supplementary material including the use of hand-written exercises, I can effectively enable the student to quickly grasp more abstract material that will enable them to go on and become both proficient and confident coders.


Background

I graduated from Newcastle University in 2017 with an MSc in Computer Science with distinction. Since then I have been happily working as a freelance software engineer and back-end web developer. I am also working on several projects of my own that I intend to launch early next year. In the following year I am also exploring the prospect of becoming an ICT teacher.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £10/h

Details

For more advanced students who require specialist help with their college or university projects I would charge a more premium fee proportional to the difficulty of the topic.
