Jamescomp - Private lessons teaching computer programming
.. One on one teaching and explaining.
From ages 5 up...
Using computer games as a basis for younger learners or applications for older learners.
Learn programming techniques or how to make applications, on either a Mac or a PC in Java programming language.
Follow the same steps I took from a young boy to become a programmer for both Novell and then Xbox.
One on one in my home office, I can explain programming concepts in a reasonable way, how I came to understand them as a pre-teen and beyond. Just bring a PC or MacBook. No programming software required. - it is downloadable from the Internet.
...With the goal being to teach concepts to the level of personal game / application creation, I can also isolate concepts that need effective clarification and explanations.
I will also suggest exercises and work to be done at home to practice the lessons.
Also, I like to have children accompanied by a parent / guardian.
My programming ability was invaluable in many junior high and high school projects.
I teach all ear round, except December.
For a Half hour lesson, I charge $20
45 mins $30
1 hour $40
