Aside from having my master's degree in information technology and game design, I have taught kids and adults in some form or another for most of my adult life. I've taught in school, homeschool, and informal settings, large classes and one-on-one coaching. I've developed curricula and lesson plans both for my classes and for others'. I love teaching, and students have said that I'm fun, funny, nerdy, passionate, and creative.

My expertise lies in technology, particularly in the following ar...
I needed some help working through some tricky and tough JavaScript challenge problems. Ian was patient with me as I tried to figure out each step but he also offered guidance along the way. He was just the boost I needed to complete the final parts of my assignment. He also helped me with a few other JavaScript/HTML problems where we broke down the steps to complete them, as well as what to avoid. Highly recommend!

Ian was great! He is helping me learn JavaScript. He is very knowledgeable. He was very patient with my inexperience and sporadic questions. I am very happy. I look forward continuing to work with him.

I have had several sessions with Ian and am very pleased and impressed with his passion for Computer Science, it's history and generally his love for teaching. I am currently halfway through a FullStack Web-Development Program and while my grade is not an issue, staying ahead is vital and I felt my understanding Javascript was behind. His method and style is both very humble and thorough. He offers context and honest opinions on best practices, good habits, syntax and more and is happy to explain/move at your pace. I am a slow learner and Javascript has been daunting, but I'm slow but surely getting the hang of it through more exposure. I am looking forward to booking more time for instruction and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to either brush up on existing skills or starting from scratch!

Ian is a great tutor. He really helped me handle the basics of Javascript, Node, and HTML. His tutoring strikes a good balance, he's able to explain the basics successfully and quickly, and also is able to get the student to put it into practice decently fast. I would definitely recommend him to any students looking for help with Web Development,

- Jimmy J. from Clarksville, TN
I'm a technical writer learning how to document REST APIs. I had hit a roadblock with data schemas and Ian provided enough of a developer's perspective to help me move forward. He was also really supportive of my goals and totally understood why I am doing all of this learning. I will definitely book another lesson with Ian should I need more help in this area.
- Jody W. from Paducah, KY
Ian has been a wonderful tutor! He is skilled at explaining Javascript concepts in very relatable terms. We were able to cover higher-order functions, Closures, "this", JS Objects, REST APIs and much more in our three lessons together. I look forward to working with him in the future when I get stuck!

Ian was a great help on the javascript challenge. He made it so simple with the explanations and also came up with new innovative ideas to help solve the problem. I love his passion for coding and the knowledge he brings to the table.
- Ravi S. from Elk Grove, CA
Ian helped to solidify my knowledge of for loops and arrays. I was also shown several very useful keyboard shortcuts. He was really great at letting me try to solve the problem first and excellent at evaluating when to step in and take the wheel before stress and frustration consumed me. Thanks again, Ian. I look forward to our next lesson!
