I completely understand how fast a coding bootcamp can go sometimes and I like to slow things down and break down concepts so that they're easier to understand.

Hi! I am passionate about working with beginners, building their skills and understanding, and helping them land their first job in tech. I completely understand how fast a coding bootcamp can go sometimes and I like to slow things down and break down concepts so that they're easier to understand. I started by mentoring people locally and all of them have landed jobs. That always brings me such joy! I am available for mock interviews, resume enhancement, practicing coding challenges, and more! I specialize in Frontend technologies (JavaScript, React, HTML5, and CSS). I also work with younger children that want to start coding. Currently, I am a Software Engineer for a startup.

A little background about me:

I graduated with a BS in Computer Engineering Technology. In college, I realized the classes I didn't find any fulfillment in the tech-relate classes. I knew I loved technology but I wasn't sure where I fit in. After graduating, I decided to do some self-discovery. That led me to web development. I finally found something I was passionate about! I decided to take a chance on myself and go through a coding bootcamp.

My first job after bootcamp was teaching Computer Science to underprivileged kids in a local high school. I enjoyed seeing the kids' development from not knowing any piece of code to being able to teach younger kids what they learned. I have been a mentor ever since.

Coming from a non-traditional background in tech (e.g. Coding Bootcamp), I know how to explain JavaScript, React, HTML5, and CSS in a way that beginners can easily understand. I didn't have 4 years to understand these concepts, I had a few months. So it is important to me to explain CS concepts in a way that I was able to understand. I also know how it feels to battle Imposter Syndrome and I can help to combat those feelings.

I'm really excited to help you on your journey to becoming a Software Engineer!

Made an excellent quiz for me.

I asked her to give me a quiz based on my level. She did a great job, and provided me with a 10 minute review of my work after I was finished and explained anything I didn't understand.

Aaron, 2 lessons with Dahnaya

A great choice for React

Dahnaya was able to quickly look over my React code and suggest a different approach. She was also careful not to just give me the answers and helped me think through the problem and discuss how best to solve it and some of the problems with things I tried. It's obvious she cares about her students learning and growth. 10/10 would recommend.

Dahnaya is a great instructor. Very knowledgeable

Dahnaya taught me a better understanding on how useState operates in React. In addition, I like that she explains and she teaches as well as ask questions to ensure you understand. She's very patient and doesn't make you feel as if you're stupid.

Dahnaya was very patient. She helped me figure out the answer by asking me questions that got me thinking. Even when I was not seeing what was in front of me! Dahnaya would walk through concepts with me. Helping me understand the under-the-hood workings of JavaScript. Thank you!

Patient and makes you work for your answers

Wonderful tutor and straight to the point, Dahnaya helped guide me to thought processes that helped me form/find my own answers. I feel confident in my understanding of the code I laid down during our session. I look forward to working together more!
