Student Testimonials
I love the way Anissa teaches, she's very friendly and approachable... She makes sure you learn and she makes it understandable. She cuts right to the skeletal of what's most important."
The instructor is enthusiastic, engaging, and knowledgeable. We dived in from day one typing code... I like being able to try code as we learn it. Testing it is fun. " Students from Fall 2017

Anissa's enthusiasm and patience for the students is outstanding… She keeps students motivated for the field of Web Design/ Computer Science and engaged in learning. She is dynamic while delivering lessons, and encourages participation. With her ability to make learning accessible yet challenging at the same time, students go from zero understanding to knowing very rapidly."
