Hi I’m Arend, a lifelong student and teacher, here to share my knowledge and style of teaching. I’ve been involved in the tech industry for the majority of my career and have spent the last 15 years working as a Business Analyst documenting and designing everything from back-end systems, business and personal websites and mobile applications. My preferred style of teaching is to take a hands-on approach, where I walk you through real-world examples, in order to provide you with a detailed view of the concepts/topics being covered.
