Instructor Biography

Jeremy Alexander, Construct 2 Game Developer // Web Developer // Animator

Jeremy Alexander is an online entrepreneur with experience in game development, full stack web design and Animation. Since 2015, Jeremy has gathered a following due to his unique teaching style and superior customer support. With his success, he has launched his own rapidly growing YouTube channel, Jerementor!

Why does he do this?

Having made his own website using Geocities in 2004, Jeremy developed a knack for all things computer related. After having freelanced in High School, it wasn’t until college that he realized - traditional education was failing him. He knew how to learn, becoming self-proficient in many programs and languages, but the typical classroom setting never clicked. Then, one hot summer day in June of 2015, it all came together. After deciding not to continue pursuing a BFA in Animation, Jeremy started teaching with his own skills and determination. His number one goal has always been to provide the learning experience he wished he had in a traditional setting. He has succeeded.
