10+ years of PHP experience including native, OOP, as well as common frameworks (laravel, neoan3, etc)

10+ years of SQL experience including Data Analysis, Big Data, Architecture&Design and - of course - complex queries.

5+ years of TOEFL preparation & teaching German as a second language.

COVID-19 schedule:
While working at home has been the regular case for me for quite some time now, the current situation has led to more availability throughout the day. Feel free to request lessons outside my official availability - chances are I can accommodate.

I have always had interest in teaching and enjoyed spreading knowledge throughout my life.

While studying Japanese, American Literature and Philosophy at the University of Munich, I picked up various jobs to support myself. Next to my passion for web development, I taught sales techniques based on my Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) education to clients of my employer at that time.

I soon noticed that what I have learned about behavior and human interaction was applicable to various subjects and provides me with the ability to adapt to the very way the learner intakes new knowledge.

This skill came in particularly handy when I started giving English lessons to small groups and especially one-on-one sessions. The "trick" is rather simple: learning is a very individual experience. Rather than only relying on established material, I will try to package required knowledge suited to your needs and in a format "digestible" for your personality.

Fast forward, I have spent the last two years working for a training company and delivered knowledge to clients in live-sessions as well as

Subjects

Computer

Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

Whether programming on a raspberry pi, reaching into IoT, automating business processes or supplying intranet solutions: while web-heavy, I always dabbled into the wide range of possibilities and was able to pick up many skills along my career of 13 years.
CSS,

CSS

I am a professional web developer with way over a decade of experience. As such, implementing predefined or self-designed layouts is may daily bread and butter. Although the subject is simply called CSS, my knowledge concerning popular frameworks (like bluma, bootstrap, tailwind etc.) as well as common preprocessors (like SASS, LESS) will be a valuable extension to the student.
General Computer,

General Computer

Working with computers all of my life as a software developer, IT and hardware has always been a side-topic as I believe one should know their tools. "Fluency" in Windows, Linux and Mac came along the way.
HTML,

HTML

Like most web-developers, HTML was my first encounter with building websites back in the late 90s. While some new elements where introduced with HTML5, overall the markup didn't see much changes over the decades. To this day, it makes sense to start with HTML declarations and grow into dynamic applications. I enjoy being part of my student's path.
JavaScript,

JavaScript

I have worked with JavaScript since jQuery was the only name in the game. Today, working with vanilla JS, React, Vue or Angular is second nature to me, while some of my node based back-ends and cli tools have name recognition amongst developers.
JQuery,

JQuery

jQuery dominated the JavaScript world for a very long time. Many of its features and ideas went into modern JavaScript versions. Eventually, interacting with the DOM had a paradigm shift and jQuery is now losing relevance. Throughout all this time, I created with, worked with, tested with, debugged, and taught the library.
Linux,

Linux

After looking at Linux (especially Ubuntu) for my server-needs for many years, I nowadays work with Linux as a desktop solution with graphical interface as well. Whether covering daily tasks and installations or setting up and configuring a mail server, a wide palette of gained knowledge enables me to help you with almost any Linux -related need you might have.
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

Windows has grown from an operating system into an environment. While the actual OS is still at the core of this topic, ranging from modifications and services to user account handling and permissions, the use of common software like office has become a huge part of tutoring needs in a digital world. Depending on focus and need, I can help advance required or wanted skills.
PHP,

PHP

I am the author of many open source PHP tools used around the world. As such, I worked for multiple corporations as a lead developer responsible for the delivery of custom applications, client communication and team education. Since version 4.4, I grew with the capabilities of this exceptional language.
SQL,

SQL

Starting with full stack development in 2007, MySQL was the first relational database I worked with. From there, growing into other flavors based on requirements was easy. With the emerging need for high-performance, big data and security, I have never stopped progressing my capabilities.
Web Design

Web Design

As a full-stack developer with over a decade of experience, I created many projects completely custom from scratch. This produced a wide variety of working methodologies, from providing mockups using the Adobe suite to working with existing CI and frameworks; from working completely on my own to collaborating in big, sometimes international, teams. Understanding marketing needs and extrapolating from analytical data, UX has become an important part of web design in a more and more competitive field.

German,

German

Growing up bilingual in proximity to the Alps, I was always fascinated by languages, the differences in thought patterns and the local flavors. I used to teach, translate and interpret English in Germany, but now live in the US and want to "switch it around". While I did attend some targeted training, I feel my biggest achievement is seeing my kids growing up in three languages they are fluent in.
