About Steve

Steve Weierman has over a decade of experience as an educator, working both as a professor of mathematics and computer science and a private tutor. He loves learning new technologies, and sharing both his knowledge and enthusiasm with others. His students come from all backgrounds and walks of life, and range in age from 8 to 80. View his full resume here.

His experience has taught him that most tertiary computer science curricula fall short of adequately preparing students for careers in the field. He is starting ITERAN to help rectify that problem. Steve believes there is a need to rethink everything about how we do education, from grades, to class structure. ITERAN strives to free education from the confines of school.

His mission in starting ITERAN is four-fold:

  1. Provide practical and affordable information technology training.
  2. Provide other educational services and resources in mathematics and computer science, including homeschooling services and supplemental tutoring services.
  3. Conduct research in computer training education to constantly refine and improve our services. We are actively researching use of inverted classroom, gamification, and other interactive learning methods.
  4. Help professionals make connections with other professionals while learning new technologies. Help educators make connections with other educators.
