    Computer Science Tutoring from 30 Year Computing Veteran

    I am a specialist Computer Science tutor/teacher with more than 30 years of involvement in computing of all kinds. I have 10 years experience delivering private tutoring and teaching class-based students. I was educated in Trinity College Dublin and hold a Degree in Computer Science and a Post Grad Diploma in Cloud Computing. I provide a student-centered, supportive classroom that promotes compassion and tolerance, emotional security, resourcefulness, and independent critical thinking while addressing the individual academic and emotional needs of each student.

    It is a pleasure to teach one’s hobby. I have extensive experience of providing online tuition to students all around Ireland and Europe. I deliver subjects ranging from Introduction to Computers, ECDL\ICDL, IT Administrator, Networks, IT Manager and Cloud Computing. I have hundreds of testimonials from satisfied learners. Here are some examples:
    John is very knowledgeable about computing overall and has broadened my knowledge and interest in computing and software applications. He has a great sense of humor and is focused on making it possible to achieve certification. Thank you for a well-presented course and your help John. I would recommend this course and John as a lecturer to anyone considering studying computers.

    This was an excellent course I have enjoyed every minute of it. I had very little computer experience starting the course and I thought it would be too difficult for me. John is an excellent teacher, probably the best one I ever had. I loved his sense of humor and I feel he was very helpful in many ways. I now feel confident in using computers. I really enjoyed the course and Thank you, John, for everything, you’re a super Teacher.

    I derive great pleasure from helping others learn. As a teacher, our professional practice is an expression of who we are. It connects us with a desire to share and to partake in something bigger than ourselves, an opportunity to make the world a better place by shaping the next generation. I teach because I believe that what I do should matter.

    I'm a professional and young software engineer working in Munich, Germany. I have completed many different enterprise projects that came to life and are accessed by thousands of users. In this class, we can cover any general computer science topic related to high school and university exams, as well as real-life enterprise project consultancy. I have been teaching for many years and I have adopted a way of learning with "ELI5": "Explain like I'm five". I'm gonna explain hard concepts in easy and real-world examples. We're not just gonna learn a language or topic, but learn how to learn fast and adapt it in every aspect. I'm a passionate software developer and I will make you love the subject by teaching it in a fun and successful way. Please get in touch with me to let me know what kind of help you need. I'm here for you!

    Passionate native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
    This class is for aiming for confident Italian speakers and practice is the best way to improve language fluency. My students and I love to split each class into two parts: the first half generally focused on grammar (foundations are crucial) and the second always dedicated to speaking activities and conversation. We'll talk about a number of different topics and share content and ideas while having lots of fun. Classes will be in English, hopefully in Italian :) Please contact me for a tailored learning program designed on your needs!

    Kickstart your Korean! 1 to 1 tutoring online or in-person (+ bring your friend for a group discount!)
    여러분, 안녕하세요? 🇰🇷 Do you want to start learning Korean and do you want to do it in an organised way? 🇰🇷 Did you already get started on learning but you got stuck on a particular grammar? 🇰🇷 Are you aiming for a TOPIK 1-2 language exam and do you want to get prepared in as short and effective a time as possible? As a language tutor with over 10 years of didactic experience and a TOPIK level 5 language exam, I can help you overcome difficulties and reach your goals. My love with Korean language and culture started more than 10 years ago thanks to my amazing Korean friends that I made during my first exchange year in Japan. Fast forward to 2016, I spent one semester in Korea as part of my individual research trip abroad to collect materials for my PhD which later turned into another semester of working holiday as an English tutor. This year spent in Korea was my real motivation to start learning the language properly so that I could connect more to the locals. For me this was a very enjoyable, but at the same time challenging process. As a result, I can completely relate to your struggles. That is why I like to make sure that I teach my students in the way that I wish I had learned when I was a beginner. I can assist you with grammar, pronunciation, and script (but also hanja and cultural notes) up to a TOPIK level 1-2. If you have a favourite vlogger, comedian or song that you want to translate in class, that is also no problem: my classes are very open to your input to turn your progress into a really personal experience.

    Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
    Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

    Mathematics and computer science accessible to all
    Need a catch-up, tutoring, private lessons or help with homework in mathematics? In computer science ? In logic? I'm here for you! I offer you a personalized approach; because there is no one method that works for everyone, I adapt to the needs and requests of each student (and their parents). The first hour of class will be used to define the student's needs, deadlines and strengths. My courses are aimed at secondary school students of all levels, higher education students outside technical courses (engineering, physics, mathematics, etc.) and anyone wishing to refresh or strengthen their knowledge in mathematics and computer science. Through my reading and my studies in computer science at the École Polytechnique de Louvain, I have amassed a quantity of knowledge in mathematics and computer science that it would be a shame not to share :) Being a student myself, I know the difficulties that certain subjects can cause and the lack of pedagogy of certain teachers. I look forward to working alongside you and unlocking your skills :) I am a master's student in computer science at the École Polytechnique de Louvain (UCLouvain), with a bachelor's degree. Naturally curious, I supplemented my course in computer science with numerous courses in physics (classical and quantum) and logic. I have also been brought to work with people from many backgrounds in various contexts, I learned a great adaptability. I have been volunteering for a long time helping friends and acquaintances in the success of their studies and I hope to be able to use this experience for the benefit of your success :)

    American politics and its impact in the world| Comparative approach
    Do you want to understand the Trump phenomenon? Does the Democratic Party have a chance for a comeback? The focus of this class is to learn more about American politics and the pressing challenges that they will face in the next decade. Is American society becoming more capitalistic and conservative or is there something else going on? How can we address the polarisation in national politics? Is the local government the solution? What is the role of lobbyists, think tanks, and interested groups in all this? These are some of the questions that we will address. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.

The course for beginners starts with a description of the interface and how you can import or create various backgrounds or objects. An introduction to basic command blocks follows, and as the course progresses, learners are given many opportunities to be creative, practise analytical and critical thinking, and combine various command blocks to add functionality to their programs. The course also aims to foster effective communication, as learners have the opportunity to share their creations on Scratch community, receive feedback and exchange ideas with other members. This course is intended for teachers who want to use Scratch in the classroom.

I'll use Sejong Korean book(Korean language school book) to teach you. and give you many chances to speak Korean. I'm very friendly and we can talk about Korean culture as well (If you want) You don't need to be afraid that you're a real beginner. It's a good start to learn. In addition, we can find the best time for both of us. *During the class Only Korean is allowed* (It's a good method to learn a new language. In case you can't understand at all, I'll use English. my Dutch is beginner level) *You can ask for a group class with your friends (Same Level)* Thanks for reading. 감사합니다!

    Mastering IT for your daily needs
    Hello, You are an adult and you need the technology to take steps or take actions. But it seems difficult to see insurmountable on your own. Arm with your notebook, you would like us to explain you step by step and know how to reproduce in order to gain confidence and autonomy! That's good, I'm able to guide you and explain what the platforms / sites expect from you! For example, how to lighten a file so that it is accepted on official sites? What are the different file formats? What are the tips to save time or make your job easier? I have a European license for computer graphics (design using the computer) and the handling and use of the different software (in French and in English) does not scare me. I have been helping those around me for many years, I have also learned to create tutorials. The language barrier is not a barrier. I have patience, curiosity and I am a teacher. And above all, I will create real situations drawn from our learning in order to assess your progress, give feedback and anchor your new skills! Take a first lesson in order to get to know each other and understand your needs, whether they are one-off or part of a longer course. Hope to meet you ! Amandine
