Tutor profile: Steve M.
Software Architect with 15+ years experience
Tutor Satisfaction Guarantee
Mentoring and tutoring is, for me, a way of paying forward for those that helped me get to where I am at in my career, and I love seeing the "ah-ha!" moments happen for those I am helping. I try to provide pragmatic guidance that helps people immediately and gets them thinking a step or two ahead of where they are going. There is no judgement or ego with me - just put the effort in, and be ready to speak openly about the work you do.
I have no official teaching or tutoring experience. However, my current and previous positions required mentoring and training the junior developers to help elevate them quickly to writing code that would be run in production environments.
