I have a Masters in Computer Science with 16+ years of professional experience as a software engineer working with core Java, Java EE, Javascript (JQuery, Angular, React, and React Native), CSS, HTML5, and Python. During my professional career I worked for large companies including GE, Walt Disney and Google. Currently I work as Software Engineer for Google.
Programming is not only my work, it is my craft and hobby too: I have been writing programs since I got my first computer at the age of 10.

I am passionate about teaching, as a matter of fact I started tutoring computer science/programming in high school, and lectured many Java programming courses during my university years. My approach to tutoring is simple yet powerful: focusing on the areas where the student struggles and making sure they understand core concepts and have strong foundations to build on. Therefore all lessons are customized to individual needs.

In addition to that I am also available as a technical interview coach. Having conducted hundreds of technical interviews as an interviewer I am sure I can help anyone take a big step forward to landing at their dream job. Learn how to write a great resume, prepare for the interview, communicate efficiently and tackle tough technical and coding questions.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any help in the following areas:
- Programming in Java, Javascript, and Python
- Web Development with HTML5, CSS, Javascrip, JQuery, and Spring Framework
- Full Stack Web Development: React, Redux, Node.js, Express, Sequelize, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL
- Cross Platform (iOS/Android) Mobile App Development with React Native
- Cloud Backend: AWS, Google Cloud, and Google Firebase
- Tech and Coding Interview Preparation, Mock Interviews and Career Advice

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Subjects

Computer

Angular,

Angular

I have been using Angular from the very first version to build responsive frontends for web applications. Angular is a powerful framework for building cross platform web or mobile applications. It is an excellent choice if performance and reusability are important requirements. I am also proficient in one of Angular's competitor: React.
Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

As a software engineer I am responsible for designing and implementing software applications. Implementation involves writing programs in different programming languages. I have been programming mainly in Java and Javascript the last 16 years. In addition to that I tutored students in topics required by computer programming such as algorithms, data structures, and problem solving. As tech interview coach I also guided them through many different programming questions that are typically used during job interviews.
Computer Science,

Computer Science

I have a Masters degree in Computer Science with 16+ years professional experience on the field. This is not only work, it is my craft and my hobby. Since I got my first computer (Commodore 64) at age of 10 I became passionate about Computer Science. I tutored many students (sometimes my classmates) in High School and in College on various Computer Science topics including programming, algorithms, data structures, software design and development, mobile development and operational systems.
CSS,

CSS

As a software engineer I use various technologies and tools to build web applications, one of them is CSS. I used CSS to manipulate the style of the HTML elements. I am experience in using CSS, since I have been using it the last 10 years of career pretty consistently.
Java,

Java

I work as a Software Engineer at Google and hold Masters degree in Computer Science. I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer and have been using Java for the last 16+ years since 1.4 version came out. Through those years I learned and mastered Java with all of the technologies around it. Most students I tutored in programming learned Java, which is an excellent choice as the first programming language. With its easy to understand syntax, versatility and strong developer community I would recommend everyone with or with no programming experience to learn. Great choice for enterprise, web and mobile development.
JQuery,

JQuery

I have almost 10 years of experience with working with JQuery and Javascript (the language JQuery is based on). JQuery is a fast and small Javascript library with support for document traversal, event handling and animation. With JQuery it is easy to write code that will work across different browsers. From form validation to interactive dashboards and navigation menus JQuery is a versatile tool that I kept using for many of projects over the years. I can help students with or without prior Javascript experience to learn and master this library.

Hungarian

Born and raised in Hungary I am native Hungarian speaker. Since I learnt advanced grammar during my education I understand how its unique grammar and vocabulary compare to the languages from other language families. Since I am fluent English speaker too, I tutored English speaking students who decided to learn the basics of the the Hungarian language before.

Fabulous mock interview

Istvan is a deeply experienced interviewer, and offers really excellent tips whether you're just starting out on your interview journey, or you've got a thousand Leet Code problems under your belt. Don't even think about walking into an interview with practicing with Istvan first!

Great JavaScript Teacher

Istvan was extremely helpful in explaining JavaScript fundamentals to me. He helped me work through TDD (Test Driven Development) and understand how to implement my code. I would highly recommend him!
