About the lesson
I am looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge in computer programming with anyone who wants to improve their programming skills (at any level). I strongly believe in practice based learning supported by underlying theory. I also believe that programming is not about memorising syntax, but understanding its logics. This way, learning other programming languages will be a matter of a few days.
- Computer programming
- Programming languages
I currently teach various programming modules at the university and I am taking care of the faculty IT infrastructure on a daily basis.
My expertise includes:
- Computer programming
- Server management (Linux/Windows, VMware Virtualisation)
- Databases (MySQL, MongoDB, DynamoDB)
- Amazon AWS
- Web development
Please get in touch with me if you should have any questions :)
Perfect! Igor was a great tutor. He is very patient and explained everything I needed to understand in great detail.
Perfect! Igor is such an amazing teacher! My 9 year-old daughter is absolutely enjoys his lesson weekly!!
- Igor's response : Hanae's daughter is a brilliant girl! She's very joyful and smart. She had no issues understanding complicated concepts of Maths and Programming and she's just 9 yo!
Perfect! A really good teacher, Igor helped me solving many python issues I had for a university work. I found the lessons very clear, we can see the experience and the ability to solve quickly hard problems.
Perfect! Igor goes quickly if you want him to but explains everything in detail if you need him to which makes him great value for money. Igor makes sure you have a solid understanding of the logic behind coding and I feel like I am on the whole a better computer programmer not just able to utilise syntax.
- Igor's response : James is very motivated student who expresses genuine interest in the subject. He contacted me to get some help with full stack development using PHP, MySQL and fronted technologies. Sessions with him are pleasure as he constantly wants to know more :)
Perfect! Igor is a great tutor. Has helped me with my problem solving and understanding tech concepts to consolidate my knowledge and help me prepare for interviews. Would reccomend to all !! Thank you!
Perfect! Igor provided excellent Info and background on various elements of full-stack developement
- Igor's response : Chris is really interested in the subject and he knows what he wants. He's pationate and strongly motivated! It is a huge pleasure to be able to teach him!
- Igor's response : Maria is a strongly motivated student who easily picks up new concepts and topics. Sessions went nicely and it was pleasure to teach her!
Perfect! So far I have only had a handful of sessions with Igor and all I can say is that I am extremely impressed with him. His organisation, attention to detail and how he teaches is outstanding. He asks for any documents to be sent to him before the lesson, he prepares notes for you and then concisely goes through what you have asked. He explains concepts well, provides analogies, gives examples and documents everything for you. As well as organising all your recordings and files for you to revisit in your spare time. I like how he explains each line of code in detail and then gives you several overviews of what is happening. I highly recommend him as a tutor and I am looking forward to my future lessons with him.
- Igor's response : Maya is a smart and motivated student. She is really interested in the subject and she really wants to understand the subject in depth. I really enjoyed the session working our way through the problem together!
- Igor's response : Benjamin is really interested in the subject and strongly motivated. He is picking up knowledge quickly. He's a very nice and talkative person :)

Igor is the best tutor I ever had.
His programming skills are really good and he’s really educated and polite.
I had struggle understanding some languages and he calmly explain everything to me until I understood.
He’s using a very practical approach to teaching, i would recommend it to everybody
Igor is great support during the lesson. He always find many different way to explain the problem and adapt to my needs. He also used a clear examples, so it is so much easier to understand the problem. With his lesson even the most overwhelming problem step by step becomes fully understandable. Thank you and fully recommend.
He helped my daughter out with her understanding of python and c++ for her undergraduate degree. Very patient, kind and hardworking and explains the logic behind programming. He made sure that My daughter had a strong foundation of knowledge so that she is able to programme in any language as she understands the logics and the basics very well.
I have been Igor’s student at the university. Igor has lots of programming experience and he’s made for teaching. He has a practical teaching approach which makes it easy to follow and understand. He has lots of materials and can explain complicated concepts in depth.

Can you tell us about your first experience using a computer?
My first experience using a computer was when I was 4 years old, my dad had his work computer at home, and he would allow me to play with WordPad for an hour a week. Back in the days it was one of the most enjoyable things for me to do. As I was getting older, he introduced me to HTML which got me interested in computer programming.
What is the technological evolution that has marked you most and what will be, in your eyes, a turning point in this field?
When broadband became available in my country it was a huge shock not only to me, but those around me. Using internet without hearing modem making dial-up sounds while connecting was a real luxury - today most of us have access to the internet wherever we go. Not to mention internet connected (smart) washing machines, fridges or microwaves.
Explain your expertise, your interest in it and, more broadly, its importance in the computer world.
Do so-called 'visionaries', such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg inspire you or do you have other role models?
Visionaries inspire me, but my role models were changing throughout the years as I was acquiring knowledge and understanding. In my childhood Bill Gates was my biggest inspiration and one of the drives behind my programming passion. Since then much has changed and today I am more fond of the work of Elon Musk and Linus Torvalds.
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
I strongly believe that goals should be set higher than expectations. That is why at school, when we were given tasks like creating an image using Pascal, I instead created a short 3-minute animation. My tutor was impressed, yet annoyed because he had to go through hundreds of lines of code. It was worth it though.
What would you say to an uncomfortable person in front of a screen who says that "IT is too complicated"?
IT might seem complicated, but we are here together to make it seem easy. Luckily, even though it is complicated, it is very logical. Understand its logics and underlying theory and it will become crystal clear.
What are your other passions, related or non-related to computers?
I am passionate about automotive industry (and its links to computer science). I am also a curious person, so I spend most of the time checking interesting facts or reading articles. My partner calls me weird sometimes as I am solving Project Euler problems for fun.
What makes you a Superprof in IT?
I think that more than 15 years of experience, supported by several years of academic lecturing make me a Superprof. I am also a very patient guy who was called funny a few times.
