Are you enrolled in a coding boot camp? Do you feel lost sometimes, over your head, or a bit overwhelmed? As the name implies, coding boot camps, are fast-paced, highly intensive programs to get you from zero to hero in the least amount of time so that you can go out and start looking for a high-paying job as a developer.

Are you enrolled in a coding boot camp? Do you feel lost sometimes, over your head, or a bit overwhelmed? As the name implies, coding boot camps, are fast-paced, highly intensive programs to get you from zero to hero in the least amount of time so that you can go out and start looking for a high-paying job as a developer. But for those of us who don't always learn quickly, we can get behind pretty quickly and then we are hustling and stressing just to catch up and we feel we must maintain this pace just to keep up. Don't let it stress you. I am here to help.
I have been in the I.T. industry for over 30 years. Technology has always been a passion of mine and I enjoy seeing the direction the world is going because of technology and I'm excited to be part of that. It hasn't been easy though. I wasn't a "Bill Gates" type where I could just absorb all the topics and understand all the complexities that come with the subject. I've had to work hard and study hard. I've had to break problems down to the basics just to wrap my mind around it. I was fortunate to have professors, colleagues, and tutors who were patient and knowledgeable to help me understand. I want to be that person for others. I want to help those who don't immediately grasp programming-related subjects get a better understanding of the topic. I bring 30 years of experience, a passion for the subject, a love of teaching and helping others, and patience in order to be a good tutor.
I've taught and tutored now for about 2 years. I've worked with students of all ages from 5th graders just learning about technology so they can write a cool game to adults who have had a full career and now wish to change it up a bit and try something different. But I specialize in college-level programming courses and full-stack development boot camp courses. I've learned to listen to the needs of the student and adjust my teaching and tutoring approach accordingly to make it a better learning experience for the student.
I just want to make clear that I am here to assist you in learning to write code. If you need a consultant, a freelancer, or a web application developer that is a separate conversation.

James was very helpful with coaching and guiding me with setting up a database model and completing queries. I'm able to construct a model and develop queries and as I began working with James, I became more confident in completing the model. James is a great tutor.GJ, 4 lessons with James
