I offer personalized coaching & training programs for software interviews, programming contests, career progression and self-improvement. My students come from many different backgrounds and have varying goals, but all share one common desire: to improve their programming, algorithm and data structure skills. And I love helping them with that!
I can work out a personalized training program for you that takes into account your goals, strengths and timescale. Generally my students are interested in sharpening their skills for:
I started my programming journey about 20 years ago. Since then I have worked at software companies small and large and have sat on both sides of the interview table hundreds of times. Most recently I served as staff / principal software engineer at Skyscanner, Wayve and Fastly. I am based near London, UK, but remote training sessions can accommodate any timezone.
When it comes to programming contests, my first exposure was when I placed 7th in a national algorithm programming contest in my final year of high school. In university my team won the national contest for three years in a row. I also competed in, or was shortlisted for, the finals of Google Hash Code four times so far, and since 2009 I've only missed one Code Jam--usually I end up falling out in the third round. But as I encourage my students, I am always working on improving and trying to keep my skills sharp!
Does having a personal trainer for data structures & algorithms sounds interesting to you? If so, feel free to book a free introductory session with me so we can explore your goals together. If you choose to continue after the first session, I will work out a personalized training program for you and together we will make sure you make steady progress towards your goals.
