Nathan V. Patnam

Web Developer & Undergraduate Student

An Undergraduate Student Trying to Make it Bigg

Thanks for stopping by my website; my name is Nathan Patnam, and I am currently senior at Wofford College pursuing a B.A in Computer Science. Besides learning how to write and design better software I love to cook, workout and play tennis. In my spare time, I write articles on the tech industry on Medium as well as post YouTube about data structures and implementing them in Python.

In terms of my past internships I have done web development at UnitedHealth Group, data science at Microsoft, and iOS/Android development (using React-Native) at Honda. I am trying to learn more about data storytelling where I take large datasets and tell the overarching story behind it using Pandas and NumPy.

Services I can offer

Programming & Python Tutoring

I tutor in general programming, front-end web development as well as Python and Java. I tutor on Wyzant, and I have served as a computer science peer tutor at Wofford College.
