Bio

Hello, I'm Zoe!

For a little over a year I have been working as a Software Engineer at AppNexus, but what I'm really passionate about is Computer Science education!

I attended Carleton College where I double majored in Computer Science and Statistics and also concentrated in Educational Studies. I then moved to New York City where I have been honing the software engineering skills that I know will help me later in life as I move my career towards teaching.

Hello, I'm Zoe!

For a little over a year I have been working as a Software Engineer at AppNexus, but what I'm really passionate about is Computer Science education!

I attended Carleton College where I double majored in Computer Science and Statistics and also concentrated in Educational Studies. I then moved to New York City where I have been honing the software engineering skills that I know will help me later in life as I move my career towards teaching.

This passion for computer science and mathematics education has taken me all over the world. I studied how to teach collaborative problem solving for a semester in Budapest, Hungary and I volunteered teaching high school women computer science in Cape Town, South Africa. Wherever I'm living, I am always in search of ways to spread a love of computer science through teaching. I have volunteered with 4 different Coder Dojos, I was a Girls Who Code Teaching Assistant, in College I TAd Introduction to Computer Science 3 times, I started a middle school computer science club, and I have tutored numerous students in math and computer science from 2nd grade through adult. Through these experiences and my own exploration I have become very aware of the resources out there for learning computer science. Regardless of one's age or experience level, I can help find something that's a good fit.

Learning Computer Science can by scary and overwhelming! I totally get that, and I've felt that feeling myself. Having a tutor who can support you through the struggles and towards that amazing "aha! Computer Science is the best thing ever!!!!" moment is incredible.

I would love to be that person for you or your child.

If you think we might be a good fit to help you along your coding journey, send me a message :) I look forward to hearing from you!

My favorite languages to teach are Python, Scratch, and javascript through p5.js.

Computer Science,

Computer Science

In college I double majored in Computer Science, Statistics, and Educational Studies. While an undergraduate I did research at WPI in their Computer Science/Learning Sciences department. After graduation I started working full time as a software engineer at AppNexus. I have been working there for almost 2 years working mainly on Java APIs, but dabbling in many other areas too.
Python,

Python

In college I studied Computer Science, Statistics, and Educational Studies. In my introductory CS course I was introduced to Python and loved it! Since then I have continued to develop my python skills through other courses. Currently in my work as a software engineer at AppNexus I am building a Python application.

Excellent tutor!

Zoe is an excellent tutor - she helped me advance my coding skills (Python) with her ability to explain programming in an accessible and digestible manner! She takes the time to properly explain the concepts and is able to translate material in a user-friendly way. She has helped me understand a broad range of topics concerning Python and her technical expertise really came through. She is also very supportive and is keen to help by providing additional resources such as coding exercises & reference materials for me to work on outside our sessions. I highly recommend Zoe and I would work with her again!
