Just getting this started at long last; after taking leave from my previous position on campus, I have had numerous students email me asking if I would return or not and inquired after private tutoring.

From tutoring my friends years ago to being an educator and workshop leader, this is something I both love and enjoy with all of my heart and at that, I don't want to do *just* private tutoring. That serves only one student at a time and for most of the world, places it behind an insurmountable paywall.

While some private tutoring would be helpful for me, I have no desire to do just that; I want to make my material accessible to many students (regardless of age) and as many students as possible.

However, now that I have left my old institution, I no longer receive a paycheck for this, so my time has been consumed with finding other work and taking whatever projects I can; this has left with me little to no time to work on my tutorials or answer emails in depth.

I want to do *more* than I did before. I want to deliver the best help I can to programmers, especially the new ones that have just popped into Python 3 REPL for the first time and/or installed their first JDK.

I want them to grow to love one of the greatest passions of my life as I do and as I'm no longer being paid as an educator, I need your help to do it.

Sponsoring me, I can pour more time, effort, and energy into creating quality tutorials. It is my hope that I will also be able to create:
-Small projects for new programmers to complete (and post on GH and BB!)
-Eventually move to video lectures
-Blog posts/video responses to programming questions
-Better contributions to open source projects
-My own projects that I otherwise would not have time for.
-Whatever else we feel is appropriate and helpful!
