Hi! My name is Brandon. I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Cognitive Science, emphasis in Human-Computer Interaction. My background leverages a blend of computer science, data science, neuroscience, and human psychology in order to build usable and human-friendly websites. I am currently a software developer based in Los Angeles.

Learning computer science and web development has been and still continues to be difficult for me at times, but during my time in school I am thankful to have encountered professors and teaching assistants who were patient enough to walk me through my questions step by step. Because of my experience with these kind individuals, I too will always try to be as patient and thorough as possible with my tutoring. I love the joy and satisfaction I see in students when they are able to see the results of their efforts translated in a successful program or a beautiful design.

I have extensive experience working with JavaScript, React, Redux, Express, MongoDB, HTML, CSS, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and more. I also have knowledge of design tools such as Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

Topics that I can teach you include, but are not limited to, vanilla JavaScript, 3D graphics with three.js, React, Redux, web design, responsive mobile layouts, CSS Flexbox, CSS Grid, React design systems, OOP, recursion, git version control, data structures, algorithms, test-driven development (TDD), single-page applications (SPA), security, user authentication, model-view-controller (MVC) pattern, creating and querying SQL or NoSQL databases, RESTful architecture.

I’d love to help you with computer science or web app development. With regards to web development/design, I will not only answer your questions but I will also ensure that I help teach you the best programming practices to make life easier! Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have or if you would like to schedule a lesson. :)

Great tutor, very knowledgeable and efficient

Brandon helped me complete a project involving Mongoose, MongoDB, and Express. I couldnt find many people on Wyzant that were familiar with the technologies, but Brandon knew exactly what he was doing and could explain everything very well. Highly recommend.
