Python tutor (online, remote)
November 18, 2011 11:10 AM

Here's the deal: I'm trying to teach myself Python, and I've tried a variety of books and methods. What I *lack* are two things:

1. Help understanding concepts I don't understand, and
2. Accountability.

I'm thinking some one-on-one tutoring might help with both things: this won't be high-paying work, but if I could find somebody to book an hour in the evening twice a week to walk me through basic concepts (I'm up to Exercise 22 in Zeb Shaw’s Learn Python the Hard Way) and either explain things I don't understand, or give me homework to execute, that would be awesome.

I'm happy to work through a book with my tutor, if that’s the best method for the person in question; similarly, if you think raw typing (call and response) stuff you feed me is the way to go, that's cool.

Being able to *do things* and *explore concepts* is how I learn best; my ultimate Python book would be like those "1001 Projects" transistor and chemistry kits I had as a kid.

I'm happy with Skype as a communications tool; GChat is also functional but I prefer voice-talk if possible.

I have a day job, so unfortunately my time is pretty restricted: Tuesday through Friday evenings after 6 p.m. are pretty much the only available spots for sessions.

payscale: $20/hour; may scale up for awesomeness
job type: part-time
