I have multiple years of tutoring experience in upper division economics courses and Python in university. I use a very hands on approach to teaching new material.
Python is such a powerful language that allows one to accomplish and automate so many tasks. I use it daily for data and stock analysis, and I love being able to share that knowledge with new programmers.
Gianluca taught me the fundamentals of security markets and did so in such a way that tough concepts were described in terms known to me. He was a valuable resource - always quick to respond to questions I had. Would hire again
He was my tutor for my intro to python programming class and he was honestly a huge help I don’t think I would have passed that class without him!
Gianluca is a very effective tutor. He tutored me through a program at UCSC and was professional, kind, and knowledgeable. His tutoring approach seemed to cater to everybody and he is very patient as well. He never hesitated to switch it up if somebody didn’t understand and made sure everyone left his lessons satisfied and with their questions answered.
Gianluca was my tutor for an introduction to microeconomics class. He really helped me with the content and even went out of his way to make worksheets and practice tests. I really recommend Gianluca.
Completing mini projects is the most effective way to become a stronger programmer. I usually teach tutees the necessary recipes to complete a project, and then have the student construct an algorithm that accomplishes a specific task independently.
I have a degree in Economics and Mathematics from University of California, Santa Cruz.
I first started using python as a quantitative research analyst at a propietary trading firm. I continued to build my knowledge as an RA for a professor in the UCSC economics department, and through my own projects. The Computer Science department hired me as a tutor for Intro to Python, and I also helped students privately.
I was also hired by the university to tutor and TA various upper and lower division econoimcs courses.
$50 / hour
I first started teaching in university as a tutor in upper division microeconomics.
I have taught privately, in small groups, and also large groups.
No one really learns Python in it's entirety - one learns to complete particular tasks using Python. For example, I am proficient in predictive modelling and am currently teaching myself machine learning, but I don't know how to code a graphical game. Make sure your tutors expertise is aligned with what it is you want to do with the language. You will be able to get more out of your tutor this way even though there is somewhat of a set curriculum for beginners.
Think about what you want to do with the language so that you can find the right tutor, and also have a more tailored learning experience.
