Hi Estefania, I really like this python course for beginners. It is your way of explaining the material, but also your many exercises in between and the graphic representation of the learning content. You do it great and I enjoy the excursions into the world of programming with you. Thanks! - Gregor Burghardt.
Great course for those new to Python. Also a good refresher for those who have not done programming for a while - Rhoda La Madrid.
Fantastic teacher, I really enjoy learning from Estefania, she is explain every detail in a way that I learn with out any question left in my mind about what she teach in each section, this teacher is the first that make me get what I watch, after many courses I try to watch and learn with no luck, all other teachers I watch had no consistency and get tired explain, thank you Estefania for you great courses, I will enroll to all of python courses from you. - Bill.

My goal is to create engaging courses where you will learn programming and understand it so well that you will be able to apply your knowledge to new situations, projects, and professional opportunities. I know that learning how to code can be challenging, but I'm here to make your journey smoother and to help you create memories that you will never forget about how you learned how to code.
I currently have 30,000+ students and 10+ courses on Udemy and my top priority is to support you by answering every single one of your questions. I'm here to help you, so please do not hesitate to ask if you ever have a question during my courses.
I believe that detailed and clear explanations combined with the power of visual learning materials create the learning experience that every learner deserves. That is the experience that I want to give you during my courses.
Coding is amazing. I love programming, data structures, algorithms, and I know what it feels like when you learn something new and you are able to create a new project or product just with your computer and a few lines of code. It's like magic!
I served as Community Teaching Assistant (Community TA) for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on edX (MITx) for the course "Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python" where I help by writing tutorials and creating diagrams to complement the course content.
My "Python OOP - Object Oriented Programming for Beginners" and "Python Exercises for Beginners: Solve 100+ Coding Challenges" courses were selected for Udemy for Business, a curated collection of top Udemy courses used for corporate training.
