Description

I grew up with early computers such as the ZX Spectrum, and was writing simple programs from the age of five. Thirty years on, I now have 13 years experience working as a programmer in the videogames industry. I've worked on games that have sold millions, including Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, Kinectimals and Kinect Disneyland Adventures.

I am available for individual tuition on:

- GCSE and A-Level Computing / Computer Science
- Degree-level Computer Science
- General purpose programming skills
- Game programming and development
- Web development
- App development

No previous programming experience is necessary. Tuition is available both locally (Newmarket and Cambridge area) and nationally (via Skype, Discord, Google Meet, etc, using screen sharing).

A session costs £39 for 45 minutes.

For A-level and GCSE students, I produce a comprehensive spreadsheet to keep track of their progress - listing each part of the course syllabus, including my own notes on the topics and links to relevant resources. I also maintain a number of YouTube playlists of videos relevant to the courses, and a list of errors in some of the official textbooks.

I have been tutoring for eight years, during which time I have tutored over 100 students at all levels. I have an up-to-date DBS check as of September 2021.

Programming languages I've worked in:

C/C++
C#
Java
JavaScript
Python
Lua
Ruby
Perl
Assembly language
HTML
Training languages such as BASIC, Pascal, LOGO, Scratch and MIT App Inventor

Technologies I've worked with include:
Node.js
ExpressJS, Ruby on Rails (web development frameworks)
Unity (game development system)
Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
Allegro (game library)

Testimonials

Dante learned a lot from Andrew about Computer Science. He felt that Andrew was very patient and supportive and guided him through the various A-level topics for this subject. He furthermore provided exercises for Dante to complete during the lesson and discussed their outcome which was really beneficial. -- Annika B

Andrew is an excellent tutor. I have made huge progress since starting work with Andrew last year. It seems like a different life! When we started, I was teaching Latin and French in Croydon. Now thanks to Andrew's help, I am now working as a Front-End Web Developer in Brighton at a well-known web development company. I am absolutely thrilled with the work we have done which started with bash commands and the terminal, then developing Ruby, Object-Oriented Design, JavaScript, CSS and problem solving. I would certainly recommend Andrew as an excellent tutor who enables outstanding progress and success for his students. -- Tom
