I am most experienced and work in React/JavaScript/TypeScript code every single day. I enjoy showing the troubleshooting process in diagnosing problems so that you can better triage issues in the future.

I've held my current position as a full-time Lead Developer at a software firm since 2016 and lead a team of other React/React Native/JavaScript and PHP developers creating a software platform. I enjoy unit testing as well as code coverage and have experience with Mocha, Chai, JUnit, Sonarqube, Gulp, Isparta, and Jest frameworks. Furthermore, I have designed websites and user experience interfaces in Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, and am knowledgeable in the Adobe Creative Suite environment. In the development teams I am involved with, I act as a scrum master and enjoy leading teams through the agile process of behavior-driven development with user stories, planning poker, sprint planning, retrospectives, and review.

I also have an extensive amount of experience in the AWS Amazon Web Services cloud setting up EC2s, Auto Scaling groups, Cloudwatch, S3, Lambdas, DynamoDB, as well as Microsoft Azure. I am well versed in Linux, Ubuntu, RedHat, Amazon Linux, CentOS, the command line, and other server infrastructure configurations.

I am interruptible at any time you need clarification or are not fully unders

Among the Best I've Learned With

Matt is very knowledgeable and is very interested in seeing his students succeed. It was nice to have pinned pointed instruction on what I needed to know. It was fustrating doing hours of research but finding answers to every question I don't need answered. Matt, thank you for your patience and for helping me make the best use of my learning time.

Incredible teacher, project thought partner, and React ninja

Tutoring sessions with Matt have been incredibly valuable - we've worked together on a commercial application where he has not only helped me add functionality I've envisioned (but couldn't implement), but also taken the time to thoughtfully and patiently explain what exactly is going on in the code and why certain patterns make sense over others. He also goes out of his way to point out helpful shortcuts and time saving methods which have been game changers for my personal development as a coder. So glad I found Matt!

Kind and extremely helpful

Matt debugged an AWS API logic problem in my code's business logic. He found the solution in 40 minutes (opposed to the 3 hours I spent earlier that morning!). Without his guidance I'm not sure I would have fixed the logic myself. Moreover, Matt reached out to me after his next class didn't show up–something I didnt expect. :)

Akshay, 3 lessons with Matt

He is great!

He has a way of explaining that is simple and easy to understand. Came out of a one hour session with a lot better understanding of the assignment. I will be using his services again.

Outstanding

Matt saved the day for me! He is an outstanding developer and teacher. He took his time to explain everything to me in detail but also in a concise way so I finally understood concepts I had been trying to grasp for years. It was a pleasure to learn from him!

Amazing tutor!

Matt showed me how to use React hooks in a project I was working on. We also worked on some code and helped me improve my code by providing tips and insight. Thank you Matt!
