Hi, I'm Mike, a coding tutor.

I learned early that I love to code. My experience includes a degree from Caltech in computer science and 16 years working as a programmer at NASA.

But while working at NASA I became interested in teaching people to code, which I find even more rewarding.

Now I’ve been a coding tutor for over ten years.

I’ve identified six key teaching strategies that I believe all teachers should use.


Building a strong foundation

Helping you connect the dots before we progress to the next level.

Encouraging small steps

Showing that a large goal can be reached by many small steps.

Keeping it simple

Avoiding unnecessary complexity.

Using your imagination

Using your imagination to make ideas concrete and easier to remember.

Asking for precision

Reinforcing the precise words you need to describe your code.

Developing independence

Asking you to solve problems through your own insights, whenever possible.

If this sounds good and you’d like to work with me, contact me today to schedule a free consultation.
