You've completed the course! Here's something to look forward to :)
I am a Software Developer that studied at Benedictine University. I concentrated in Java throughout my undergraduate career as I made my way towards a Bachelors in Computer Information Systems. I have taught private classes for many students and absolutely love to use the experiences that I have, along with the experiences of my students, to better the courses that I teach. I have been involved with teaching students a variety of subjects for 4+ years, as it has slowly built up to be one of my primary passions.
I truly believe that anyone can begin to learn programming languages when guided and instructed in the best manner. I have struggled just as you have and I am determined to help students avoid making certain mistakes based on my personal experiences. I absolutely love seeing students succeed and get off on the right track.
