About the Instructor

Hi there! I'm Nathan Wang, a 3x USACO Finalist (top 15 in the nation), 5x AIME qualifier, and the instructor for this class.

I've been programming for well over half my life, and I've done competitive programming for the past five years.

I've taught competitive programming at AlphaStar for two years, and have been doing private tutoring for over a year.

I'm also the cofounder of the USACO Guide and the Competitive Programming Initiative; these competitive programming resources have been used by well over 20,000 students!

Pursuing competitive programming has been immensely rewarding for me, and I want to help other students discover the wonderful world of competitive programming.
