Excellent Computer Programming Tutor!

Leonard did an excellent job. He has lots of Assembler Language Knowledge, lots of patience and super helpful. I was able to complete the assignment. Thanks!

Purna, 5 lessons with Leonard

Great Python tutor!

Leonard helped me with a Python 3.6 assignment. I was totally stuck and could not figure out importing data from a .txt file to a dictionary and back to a .txt file. He was able to review the code I had completed (and sorta worked) and he patiently guided me through the steps to get a working program. I would definitely recommend and will use again if I get stuck.

Sara, 3 lessons with Leonard

AMAZING!!! super knowledgeable AND patient!

We worked for 4 hours and I learned more in those 4 hours than all my time at Udacity! He was so patient sticking with me until I finally understood EVERY concept. I will work with him again for sure :)

Armando, 2 lessons with Leonard

Great tutor for Excel VBA

Leonard was so helpful teaching me the basics of VBA. I have very little experience with VBA, and he explained all of the concepts and procedures in ways that I was able to understand. Leonard is a wonderful tutor, and I would recommend him to anyone! Plus, he has experience and knowledge of other programs as well.

Breanna, 6 lessons with Leonard

Perfect Tutor

Mr. J is very knowledgeable with the information needed to convey. He is very nice and patient. He's very punctual, easy to talk to, and possesses the ability to make the information relevant so you can remember the material.

Michael, 4 lessons with Leonard

Great Python programming tutor

Leonard is phenomenal. He is passionate about his work. His communication skills are fabulous. If you need an amazing brilliant and patient tutor Leonard is for you. We will definitely be using him in the future. For the first time my son felt confident in his work. That made this experience so worth it!

Dawn, 1 lesson with Leonard

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I had a homework assignment regarding RESTful APIs in Python and Leonard was very helpful in explaining things I didn't understand. He took the time to make sure everything was correct and written with good style which I really appreciated.

Malcolm, 8 lessons with Leonard

Very patient

I had a lot of questions and was very confused. Leonard broke down everything for me and even took the time to look through my book to make sure I understood it from my books perspective!

Sharon, 2 lessons with Leonard

Test prep and assignment help

Requested a lesson with Leonard for his expertise in assembly language (ASM) on the x86 microprocessor. Friendly, patient, and knowledgeable in a relatively obscure subject (on Wyzant at least), Leonard helped me finish my assignment and ace my test. Would highly recommend.

Billy, 1 lesson with Leonard

Expert at Python and Tutoring It

Leonard has tremendously helped me with homework and better understanding the concepts of Python. I'm in an intro to computer science class at UAB and he understands what the professor is looking for in the homework. I would highly recommend him if you ever have problems with homework or are wanting advanced teaching in it.
