N00bPancakes8389222dIf you're not a good teacher ... probably not a great situation.
Nothing wrong with TRYing, but also the other person needs to try things too, code academy, other various methods of learning, etc.
IMO nobody can 'make' someone a good dev, they can only try to help someone along, but it's the individual who makes them self a good dev.
Demolishun12108222dSelf motivation and aptitude are needed. If this person is motivated then they will eat up any kind of learning resources. I don't know if Khan Academy has webpage related coding, but it will help with a good foundation in certain kinds of programming. They use JS for a lot of their CS stuff. So that will help them learn JS.
devjesus2164222dI usually find live/classroom courses as a better way of learning than lookin at a playlist of videos/articles. checkout the udacity/coursera or other platforms that are starting some new batch. she would learn better under pressure and in a environment full of multiple peers
if not classroom then practical are the next best thing. Your 1 on 1 sessions on creating mini websites plan sounds good.
My friend got me to learn concepts of webdev by making me join their company and giving me small tasks from their project
volttide686222dYou know what, for me it's harder to teach than studying. Teaching isn't just for me😔
