This is probably better suited for the hiring mega-thread. I charge $60/hour for custom work ( base usage licensing ) when I develop code/products with an option to purchase exclusivity licensing and sometimes even resale rights down the road.
I used to teach classes in my area; not for Lua but computer and software development related for ~$300 ( This was with anywhere from 10 to 50 participants per class with several per day ).
I’m willing to teach, but you’d have to prove to me that you want to learn. This wouldn’t be a college teaching situation; I’m pretty strict when I teach one on one as in if I feel you don’t want to learn then it’s over. I have tutored a handful or two of people in Lua, but they turned out to not be interested in coding.
With that being said, I don’t have any specific “course-plan” and it’s pretty open-ended driven by what the student/s wants/ to learn; so if I’m to teach you, you’d have to tell me what you want the end result to be, what do you ultimately want to achieve.
Do you want to be a better coder all around ( code analysis, optimization, debugging & QA, pattern matching to reduce code footprint ), do you want to make addons here and there ( design, implementation, debugging & QA with some touching on optimization and a few other subjects ), or anything else.
Tutoring would be laid out like so: Initial questions ( this can drive the entire session ), discussion of topic, assignment. Since it’s one on one, it needs to be a discussion; I’m not just going to sit there and talk the entire time, you’re expected to be a part of the conversation.
Your initial questions should be about what you’re interested in learning as it could drive the entire session, questions about assignments, questions about the previous session, etc.
Topic discussion is where we’d cover the topic, writing code, giving examples, asking and answering questions, etc.
Assignments should be automatic. I’m not going to tell you what to do and when to do it. I’d expect you, if you’re really interested in learning and wanting to become a developer, to come up with your own assignments which are in part inspired by the discussion to show what you’ve learned or want to learn. You’re expected to have questions for each session about past, current and future assignments.
Feel free to pm me if you’re interested and we can come up with a rate.
