About Me

As a teacher specialized in programming and ICT, I provide material and resources for the development of analytical, critical, and computational thinking, while also encouraging my students to be creative. I design activities for the cultivation of interpersonal and social skills and a team-working ethos, which are essential for establishing a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. Furthermore, I aim to develop and foster a secure IT environment and an e-safe culture.

I have designed and implemented programming courses not only for young but also adult learners. Some of those courses do not require prior programming experience while some others are more advanced so that learners can choose the one best suited to their needs.

Since 2014, I have also been authorized to teach Maths in light of my mathematical background from my university studies. Therefore, in addition to my computer programming courses, I offer primary and secondary maths lessons.

It can be used in many areas such as web development, mathematics, science, education and general purpose software development. This course aims to demonstrate how Python can be used to create solutions to real-life problems or programs that can be used to faciltate tasks performed at school, in a workplace or at home. It aims to engage not only learners with advanced programming experience but also those who have little or not any experience at all. Creative and critical thinking are continuously encouraged during the lessons. Relevant topics: - Input/Output - Data types and variables - Operators - Lists,tuples, sets - If / else - Loops - Functions - Lambda - Classes/Objects - Inheritance - Iterators - Scope - File handling - Modules - NumPy - Python Maplotlib - Python SciPy The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners. Younger learners may prefer to start with my course entitled “Create fun games and interactive programs in Python”.

Whether you are asked to create a spreadsheet for maths or science assessments, a database of pupils, or an engaging presentation for a school project, Microsoft Office is usually your choice. The more you know about advanced capabilities of Office programs the more impressive your work can be. This course includes one or more of the following modules: - Documents with Word - Spreadsheets with Excel - E-mail with Outlook - Communication with Teams - Presentations with PowerPoint - Databases with Access If learners are advanced or not interested in any of the above modules, I could happily exclude those modules from the course.

This course aims to engage learners with little or no programming experience to create Java programs. Participants are introduced to object-oriented programming concepts, terminology and syntax, and the steps required to create basic Java programs using the Alice and Eclipse interactive development environments. Hand-on practice enables learners to experience the power of computer programming. The Java™ programming language can be challenging for computer programmers with limited or no experience in object-oriented programming. To provide an easy introduction to Java, Alice is explored first in this course, so that fundamental principles and skills are established using 3D animations in a fun, visually rich environment. When learners become familiar with the concepts of object-oriented programming, they can proceed with the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), which is widely used in computer programming. It contains a basic workspace and an extendable plug-in system for customising the environment. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

+Assignment Help - Exam Preparation - Practice in Python related University modules Hey, Alexandros here :)! I work as a self-employed full-time private tutor having recently completed a Master's at UCL. Here, I am involved with tutoring undergraduate and postgraduate students in Python, Monday to Saturday. What makes me a great tutor is that I encourage students to develop their problem solving and critical skills on a wide range of practical programming tasks. This means students are not simply learning facts but are able to think more independently and laterally. I'm also really friendly, patient and try to make my lessons really engaging. In my spare time I enjoy walking, singing and socialising.
