My name is Liz, and I am from Boston, Massachusetts in the U.S. I have been teaching myself programming since I was 15 and since then I’ve learned many languages including C#, C++, Java, Python, HTML, CSS and JS. Although I studied Anthropology at Bryn Mawr, I am a constant reminder to students that you can always pursue what you love and having both a technical and humanities background are a complementary set of skills.
As an educational consultant I seek to prepare the student not only by providing a strategic application service that is tailored to the student, but also provide them with additional training and development. I prepare them to succeed in the U.S. professionally, through networking, presentation and resume building, professionalism, interview training, and academically, through one-on-one academic and creative writing training. I want them to leave me not only having developed academic writing abilities but also to be prepared to take advantage of the on and off-campus resources available to them to do so. I also push them to create opportunities even where there are none. Many of the opportunities I had were non-existent but because I believed in myself and my capabilities I created them.
I am a believer of lifelong learning and improvement, as a result, in my free time I am working on different independent projects. I’m also an active trader, investing in cryptographic currencies (such as BTC/ETH) and enjoy teaching others how to invest and understand the market. I have taught several one-to-one classes on developing the background knowledge on the mathematical computation. I am multi-talented and seek to push students to be the same. Being able to develop several different kinds of skills is powerful in this technological age.
