When I first started teaching my little brother to code… He was a timid little fraidy cat. (And, not the cute “supermodel in a cat costume” kind, either. Honestly, his “shy little kitty cat” routine was more of the “Michael Moore in a tube top” kind. Gross and a bit disturbing. Just sayin’.) Always worried he was getting this or that wrong. Having me check everything he did. And, every time I’d push him to write something HIS way… he’d say, “I’ll try”. Which made me madder than a Hillary Clinton supporter on election day. Finally, one day, I went
She stopped me mid-sentence and said: “Ok look. I’m really not supposed to do this, but I don’t want you to leave the building. Wait right here for a second and I’m going to see if I can get this expedited. Wait one minute.” I sat there for a few minutes wondering, “what the hell?” She finally came back and said: “Ok, come with me.” We walked back to the HR department and she sat me down next to a desk and said: “This is [Sally]. She’s going to process everything for you. We’re going to hire you right now.
[saf] I remember walking into the meeting sure the jig was up. I’d just got hired back to a company that several months earlier I’d walked out on mid-shift. And, not only did they hire me back… but I’d be getting a “promotion” to a management position. I’d wondered why they never asked about it during the interviews. Turns out a “glitch” in their system had failed to identify me as a former employee. But, it was fixed and now, just a couple days into my new job, I’d been found out. So, I walked into a meeting with the head
I’m surprised more developers don’t do this. But before I get into that… I thought she was going to jump out of her chair. It was the first time I’d tried it and, to me, it felt kind of like awkward pandering. I knew my delivery was a bit off and it came out a bit funny… but apparently it didn’t matter. Her eyes lit up.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
John has a particular knack for the development and training of others.
I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
