Over the years, I have developed software using various technologies including C, C++, Java, Perl, Python, HTML, Javascript, jQuery, AngularJS, Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, Informatica, Unix (Solaris) and Linux.

I have been involved in all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and have experience in software design and architecture, software development, software testing and software maintenance and support.

I also tutor other computer science topics such as Algorithms, Data Structures, Object Oriented Principles, Design Patterns, Operating Systems, Databases, Networks...

I spend a sizable amount of time mentoring junior software engineer and I consider this aspect of my job one of the most fun and rewarding.

My goal is to help students and professionals acquire new skills or improve their skills through tutoring.

I am also a photographer and would love to share my passion for photography. I can help students learn how to use their camera (DSLR) effectively and understand the most important technical aspect of photography (exposure, aperture, shutter speed, sensitivity (ISO). I specialized in landscape photography and low light (night) photography.

After buying a DSLR about five years ago I started taking a lot of pictures during my free time. I started meeting people for the sole purpose of taking pictures. I have been focusing on landscape photography and night photography and spend a lot of time helping other members of the groups I meet understanding the technical aspects of their camera and help them take the best picture possible with the available condition (lighting).

Knowledgeable in MySQL and SQL

At first, I needed someone to help me install the sample employee database on my laptop. Unfortunately, I had to go through several unknowledgeable tutors before finding Jean-Benoit. Jean was able to follow the instructions and install the employee database AND explain what he was doing to me. I have since reached out to him for assistance with writing several challenging SQL queries and he cut through them like butter with a hot knife. He definitely knows what he is doing in regards to MySQL and SQL.

John, 2 lessons with Jean Benoit

Very experienced

Great experience for my daughter in operating systems. Thoughtful instruction that was easy to follow considering the complexity of the class. No trouble getting time for instruction.

Linda, 5 lessons with Jean Benoit

Dishonest and not prepared

1) Dishonest. We started a lesson but there was a technical problem. He could not share his screen. We tried connect through a chrome extension. Did not work either. Ended up me sharing the screen. I asked to adjust the time, but he blamed me. He did not produce a single line of code during our class (Yes, Carl!). Still justifies his charge of 140$ per hour as appropriate. 2) Not prepared. I needed to code some parallel programming concepts (work scheduler, thread pool, etc.) in C++ using pthreads . I sent the problem set and stressed the problems I was interested. I ended up sharing my screen. So I did all the work; Jean just gave comments once in a while. It took us 30min to find a bug in a simple vector traversing and edge conditions. (Seriously?). When we started the work on thread pool assignment, he just googled some random code. He could not even explain it. 3) Not knowledgeable It was clear that Jean did not know how to solve any of the assignments. Stay away!

Very Knowledgeable & Understanding - Great Tutor!

He helped me understand Samba server set up with Linux & Windows while walking me through correcting my errors and explained each step. I will definitely enjoy our next session.

KJ, 1 lesson with Jean Benoit

Pretty good.

We reviewed some Unix/Linux commands. We also worked on a SQL assignment for my class. I'll probably see Jean-Benoit in a couple weeks for a followup lesson. During our next lesson we'll probably review how Java and SQL can be combined, which is something I have never done before.

Douglas, 3 lessons with Jean Benoit

Helpful Programming Tutor

Answered all my questions, to say the least, he's wealth of information!!! Very easy to talk too, seems to understand very quickly exactly what you're trying to accomplish.

Anthony, 1 lesson with Jean Benoit

Definitely helped clarify OOP

Explained a lot of the questions I had with a project I’m working on, would recommend JB for anyone needing help with Computer Science related topics.

Knowledgeable tutor

Patient and able to think on his feet. Helped me very much to get a handle on a subject that was eluding me. Highly recommended and friendly. Would definitely work with him again.

Joseph, 1 lesson with Jean Benoit

Helpful First Lesson

Jean Benoit is very knowledgeable. He is able to hit the ground running very quickly. We worked on dynamic programming and deterministic inventory problems. During our lesson, we worked efficiently to try to get me to understand how to do the problem and understand the concept.
