Instructor & Co-Founder

Andrew Rust

"Technology is the future of education, and the next generation!"
I have always been passionate about education in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) and have been looking for a way to teach the next generation the skills they will need to succeed in the online world. After taking my first computer science course at Wake Forest University, I understood the role technology will play in the careers of the future and decided to start ByteSize Learning with the goal of reaching as many students as possible and teaching them skills they need to succeed in today's society.
I am currently studying Engineering with a double-minor in Computer Science and Mathematics at Wake Forest University and am also a proud graduate of the North Carolina School of Science and Math.
Outside of my passion for teaching and computer software, I enjoy playing and watching sports and am currently a Right-Handed Pitcher for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (Go Deacs!). I also love basketball, football, and volleyball. My other interests include graphic design, making websites and producing videos.
If you are taking our Programming and Game Design in Scratch, Redstone Engineering in Minecraft, Photo Editing and Graphic Design in GIMP, or Music Production in Cakewalk, you might have me as your instructor!

"Coding is the universal language of the future.!"
Throughout my childhood, some of the most fun I ever had was inviting friends over and filming funny videos. I remember surfing the internet trying to learn how to edit those recordings we had made together and slowly piecing the clips together into my own project. Learning this software at a young age allowed me to create many videos and projects which I can still go back and watch today.
Since then, I have immersed myself with technology and programming to bring my ideas to life. With ByteSize Learning, I hope to assist the next generation in developing these skills to explore their passions and creativity through the use of professional software.
I am currently studying Finance and Statistics at NC State University and am a graduate of the North Carolina School of Science and Math.
After my love for teaching and computer software, I enjoy playing video games and programming my own games.
‍I have 3+ years of experience working with children in both formal and informal settings. I have experience teaching in a variety of academic and computer software topics.
If you are taking our Video Editing and Production in DaVinci Resolve, Game Design in Unity, Programming in Python, or Programming in Java I look forward to seeing you in class!
