Professionals are fast moving online. Very few of them will still have time to teach physically.

Programming is one of those skills you can easily learn online.

All you need is a good and experienced coach, and I'm here to help.

Is programming difficult?

It depends on who is coaching you and the time you dedicate to learning it.

If you're being coached by a very experienced and gifted coach, if you give it enough time, programming will be fun for you.

However, if you're struggling to learn by yourself or you're being coached by an inexperienced coach, you will find programming difficult.

Can I learn coding with my phone?

Yes, you can start learning with your phone if you don't have a laptop. Just buy a phone external keyboard, I will direct you on how to use it to start programming.

How do you mentor your students?

I mentor my students by; answering their questions and helping them solve some problems whenever they call my attention.

If my student need my attention, I usually ask them to send me a screenshot of the issue or a zip file of their work to enable me analyse their job and debug the error.

I usually make a new video to point out their errors if the situation is complex.

I'm not used to online training, I'm afraid it won't work for me.

Online training is great when a gifted teacher is handling it. Look for a gifted teacher.

You will be missing opportunity to acquire great skills if you ignore online training.

Some skills are not common. Online training make them accessible.

If you have tried online training before and it didn't work for you, try again, this time, concentrate on getting a good teacher.

I made all my tutorials downloadable to win against poor internet connection.

You can download all your tutorials when the internet connection is ok and learn offline without worrying about network fluctuations.

What if I insist on one-on-one training. What's your advice?

Online training would have made learning a lot easier for you but if you insist on physical training, you have to take the pain of looking for someone or centers where the skills are taught.

The centers might not be close to you, so be ready to spent heavily on transportation.

I wrote an article where I compared online and physical training. You can chat me on Whatsapp to request for it.
