About Simon


Bio

I started my adventure with programming in high school when I discovered that my TI-83 calculator can be programmed using BASIC and I have been fascinated by the spirits that live in my computer ever since.
Before deciding to become a full-time software engineer and turning my long-time hobby into a profession, I completed a Master's degree in Economics and worked in the financial technology sector for a few years.

I started my adventure with programming in high school when I discovered that my TI-83 calculator can be programmed using BASIC and I have been fascinated by the spirits that live in my computer ever since.
Before deciding to become a full-time software engineer and turning my long-time hobby into a profession, I completed a Master's degree in Economics and worked in the financial technology sector for a few years.

Since deciding to make the transition to writing code for a living full-time, I decided to go back to school to pursue a degree in Computer Science and afterwards completed a 3-month program at App Academy - a selective, full-stack development bootcamp focused on React and Ruby on Rails. Since then I have been working as a full-stack engineer, spending the majority of my time writing JavaScript/TypeScript and React during the day and helping students feel more confident with JavaScript and React concepts in the evenings and on weekends.

Whether it is a specific concept you are struggling with, need help working through a project or want an extra set of eyes to review something I am always more than happy to help so feel free to reach out with any questions or just to say hello!

Usually, I am able to respond right away unless I am helping a student in which case I will respond as soon as the session is over.

For the past 5 years I have been working as a Full Stack Engineer building applications primarily in JavaScript/Typescript, React and Node. I have also completed a second Bachelor's degree in computer science and applied mathematics at Stony Brook University where I served as a TA for the Java programming labs portion of the curriculum.
JavaScript,

JavaScript

Over the past 5 years, as a full stack engineer, I have continuously used (and continue to use in my current role) JavaScript and React as the primary tools for building applications. Along with TypeScript and Node, I consider them to be the strongest tools I possess in my tool belt.

Knowledgeable and helpful!

I am taking a JavaScript class and am a total novice. I met with Simon to get some help with an assignment as I was feeling overwhelmed. I’m sure what we were doing was quite elementary and simple to him, but he was very patient with helping me and a great communicator. He asked me leading questions to get me to figure out how to solve the problem. He also showed me several tools I could use to understand code better. By the end of the session, my assignment was complete and my confidence was raised! He also responded quickly the next day when I had further questions. Will be using his services again.

Quickly helped me solve my problems.

Was able to dive right in, review my code and help me understand more about react life cycles, that enabled me to fix my issue and move forward with my project. I feel much more confident having a knowledgeable software engineer to get me over the humps a self taught programmer encounters. I look forward to further sessions.
