About Ian

Aside from having my master's degree in information technology and game design, I have taught kids and adults in some form or another for most of my adult life. I've taught in school, homeschool, and informal settings, large classes and one-on-one coaching. I've developed curricula and lesson plans both for my classes and for others'. I love teaching, and students have said that I'm fun, funny, nerdy, passionate, and creative.

My expertise lies in technology, particularly in the following areas: general computer use, computer science, software engineering, programming (JavaScript, PHP), web development, web design, game design, graphic design, marketing design, desktop publishing, and the Adobe Creative Suite (PhotoShop, InDesign, etc.). I am also a fan of project-based learning: I can coach a technology project from beginning to end.

I've been programming since age ten, and developing web sites for as long as there's been an Internet. I have my master's degree in information technology and game design (4.0 GPA) and continue to learn devotedly, even as trends in technology rapidly change. I have my own web design business, specializing in custom sites.

I ran a print/web marketing business for ten years, advising clients on designs for their marketing. I understand layout, composition, eye pathing, communications, color theory, typography, fontography, and design history. I also use PhotoShop and InDesign almost every day, frequently creating custom art and graphics for my web design clients.

All of my areas of expertise are highly marketable in today's IT job environment. Let me know how I can help you out.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Computer Programming

I've been developing since age ten, before there was even an Internet. I have a master's degree in information technology and game design, achieving a 4.0 GPA. Currently, I run my own freelance web design/development business, specializing in custom sites. I'm fluent in HTML, CSS, JavaScript (jQuery, angular, etc.), and PHP. I've built my own, custom full-stack framework using RESTful APIs and modern best practices.

Desktop Publishing

I ran my own print/web marketing business for ten years. The company consulted with clients and advised on cohesive, targeted design, then developed the campaign. We created, on a daily basis, postcards, business cards, flyers, posters, booklets, and other print media utilizing desktop publishing.

Graphic Design

I ran my own print/web marketing business for ten years. The company consulted with clients and advised on cohesive, targeted design, then developed the campaign. We created, on a daily basis, postcards, business cards, flyers, posters, booklets, and other print media. We also developed coordinated web sites when needed.

HTML

I run my own freelance web design/development business, specializing in custom sites. HTML is just one ingredient in web development, but the central one around which all other disciplines revolve. Master HTML first, if you're interested in beginning web design or development.

JavaScript

I've been developing since age ten, before there was even an Internet, and working in JavaScript since it was created in 1995. In the last few years, there's been a JavaScript resurgence, and I use it every day for my own web design clients. I've built my own JavaScript/PHP RESTful API and am developing my own library.

JQuery

I've been using jQuery since it was first introduced in 2006. After ES5--and now ES6--jQuery is obsolete, but still widely in use. I can help with understanding jQuery, or even help transition away from it back to vanilla JavaScript. I have my master's degree in information technology and game design, I have taught kids and adults in some form or another for most of my adult life.

Web Design

I've been developing since age ten, before there was even an Internet. I have a master's degree in information technology and game design, achieving a 4.0 GPA. Currently, I run my own freelance web design/development business, specializing in custom sites. Before that I ran my own marketing design business for ten years.

Experienced tutor who can really simplify difficult concepts!

I recently got accepted into General Assembly's Web Development Immersive course. Although I have some previous experience with HTML and CSS, I have no experience with Javascript whatsoever. Trying to understand Javascript on my own was like reading in a foreign language that I don't know, which it basically is, and that drove me crazy. I was honestly panicking prior to having a session with Ian.
