Hello, my name is Dylan. I grew up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After High School I enlisted in the United States Navy, where I got my first experience tutoring students with CSADD, a Navy Volunteer group. After spending four years on board the USS Kauffman I honorably discharging from the service. The reason I left the service was to pursue my higher education, which was why I enrolled at the College of Westchester. While in school I have had the opportunity to study computer programming and networking, working with my peers in the PC Doctor program, in which we repaired computers and phones. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to lead classes and help exercise creative problem solving.

Danny Richardson
Kids Coding Instructor
Read My Bio
My name is Danny Richardson; I am 17 years old and an avid electronics hobbyist and tinkerer. I have a deep interest in engineering and wish to pursue that as my career after college. I enjoy crafts such as carpentry, machining, and forging. I work on things such as old computers, robotic arms and prosthetics, and repair old motors. Outside of the workshop, I often bike, hike, and camp in the great outdoors. I take great pride in my works and find pleasure in inspiring awe from teaching, those younger than I, the technical crafts that shape society: such as robotics, coding, and engineering. That satisfaction of changing the youth's future for the better, is the greatest form of gratification.
