Code Coaching

FAQs | Plans and Pricing

Wouldn't it be nice to have a real person available to help guide you through learning a new programming language or API without the formality of taking a course? Are you trying to increase your skills as a developer and want to have someone hold you accountable for your learning and provide insight and constructive feedback along the way? These are just some of the ways that I can help you as a code coach.

Code Coaching FAQs

What is a code coach? Think of a code coach as a personal trainer for your programming skills. You tell me your goals and then I build a program that can help you to achieve those goals. As your coach I provide support, motivation, and constructive feedback as you learn.

What types of coaching do you provide? I can provide coaching in a number of areas. Please contact me so we can discuss your specific needs. Some of the topics I can coach include iOS application development, Android application development, Linux administration, fundamental programming skills, data structures and algorithms, and object-oriented programming.

How does this work? Before you sign on for coaching services we will talk about your specific goals. I will identify those areas for which I can provide expert guidance and those areas where I can't. We will also discuss how much time you have to commit to your program each week. With this information I can build a monthly training plan that you can use to achieve your goals. All learning happens over the course of a month. During this time we will have scheduled online meetings, you will have email access to me for questions and feedback, and I will review your work and provide critiques. Once a new month begins this process starts over.

Do I need to make a long term commitment? No. All plans are month-to-month with no long term commitment.

Can I cancel at anytime? Yes, you can cancel at anytime.

Do I get a refund for unused weeks in a month if I cancel? No. Every month is paid in advance and there are no partial refunds.

What if I'm not happy, do you have a money back guarantee? Yes. At the end of our first two weeks, if you don't feel this is working out for you, I will be happy to issue a refund. Code coaching is a partnership and I also reserve the right to issue you a refund and not continue with our coaching relationship at this time.

Beyond the first two weeks of your first month I cannot give refunds as code coaching consumes a good deal of my time.

I'm a student, can you help me? I can provide tutoring services for students. Tutoring services are billed differently than code coaching. Feel free to contact me at jason@megawertz.com for my tutoring rates. I do not accept code coaching clients that are currently in school. Code coaching is intended for working professionals and those looking to switch careers.

Do you sign Non-Disclosure Agreements and non-compete agreements? No. I do not sing NDAs or non-competes. I will keep our relationship and all of the code discussed during our coaching sessions in strict confidence.

What qualifies you to be a code coach? I have 14 years experience designing curriculum and teaching computer science courses at the college level. I am also an independent iOS and Android developer and have past experience working with a number of platforms, languages, and technologies. I have the ability to help design a course of study that is customized to your learning needs and the ability to provide you with a one-to-one learning experience.

If you want to get an idea of my teaching style please see my YouTube channel. You can also find some code samples on Github.
