My mission is to help you build your analytical and programming skills so that you can find your first job or improve your career.
You may be wondering how I can help you do that, since there’s already a bunch of resources available online, and some are even free. Let me give you a little bit of context.
- I started programming at age 12, using languages from C to mIRC, to VB, and more.
- I created several small applications using C and VB
- I completed my bachelor degree in Mathematics with profile in actuarial sciences.
- Learned to program in R, Python, specifically for data analysis/science
- Solid math foundation in topics such as calculus, linear algebra
- Solid statistics foundation in probability, statistical methods such as linear regression
- I soon found my first job as an inventory analyst and learned more about business.
- Performed various analyses on service level, growth, gmroi, restocking policies, shipping policies.
- Transformed my knowledge of SQL in a concrete skill, and soon coaching my colleagues on how to use it instead of Excel
- Used Python to automate my job and got a promotion as a business analyst to perform analyses on all areas of the business
- A couple of years after became a Senior Data Analyst.
- Used tools such as Python, R, SQL, spark, hadoop, to derive insights from data
- Created and maintained machine learning models such as LTV and personas
- Considered the go to person for everything data in my team
I learned a lot through that process, whether it’s about business, programming, performing sound analyses, and even about myself.
But what is – and always has been – my biggest advantage is my learning process.
I always found that knowledge is useless in a business context if it’s not applicable. And how do we call applicable knowledge? Skills.
I always focused on developing skills first, and so through the process I had to dumb down the concepts I was learning, and try to break those concepts with trial an error.
That way of learning and doing things made me a very good analyst, but an even better teacher. I started to notice that my colleagues were learning a lot from me, just by the way I was explaining them complicated concepts. It is way faster for them to learn from me than to waste hours online to understand the same thing by themselves.
And so, finally, I created this website to put my teaching skills at your disposition. Enjoy 🙂
