About Jacob


Bio

Almost 15 years ago a high school teacher sparked my interest in computer programming. That spark has since evolved into a passion that I would like to share with others. While my career in the field has challenged me to utilize my computer programming skillset and constantly keeps me learning new things, I still feel the need to teach and help others in the field.

Almost 15 years ago a high school teacher sparked my interest in computer programming. That spark has since evolved into a passion that I would like to share with others. While my career in the field has challenged me to utilize my computer programming skillset and constantly keeps me learning new things, I still feel the need to teach and help others in the field.

I have earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Computer Science at Western Illinois University and have 6 years of experience professionally programming SQL, VBA, and Java. In addition to programming experience, I also have experience teaching. During graduate school I was able to teach an undergraduate computer science course for 2 semesters. I also have been job shadowed by prospective computer programmers. Instead of just having these candidates sit and watch me do my job, I included them in my projects and gave them opportunities to use different platforms to write code.

Java, VBA, Web Design, React, Node, Firebase, MySQL

I want to be able to share my passion in computer programming with others. I will do this by allowing students to apply what they have learned by immersing them in real world scenarios. To me it is important to not only know how to program, but to be able to apply it. Please feel free to contact me with additional questions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to working with you!

Excellent tutor

Jacob helped me with mySQL and answered all of my questions. He is very patient and knowledgeable. I will definitely have him as my tutor again.

Abby, 1 lesson with Jacob

Knowledgeable, Kind, Supportive

I was drowning in a Python coding class when I found Jacob. After just 2 lessons, I feel like I am starting to grasp the concepts and use the tools Jacob offers to succeed on my own. He is easy to work with and will go the extra mile to make sure you accomplish your goals. So thankful for his help!

Great Lesson

Jacob is very patient and thorough. Explained, clarified and made the subject more simple. I feel more confident learning Python after the lesson with Jacob. Extremely encouraging and helpful. Would absolutely request his tutoring services again.

The best!

It has been incredible working with Jacob! He helped me complete a programming grad school project on a time crunch. Jacob was so understanding and patient with me, even when I was cognizant of my lack of understanding. I look forward to working with Jacob in the future, he is definitely my go-to tutor! Thank you Jacob for all of your help!

Very courteous, great teacher

I had one session with Jacob for Python about a program that just wasn't working, and he carefully went over why it didn't work, how to fix it, and what to do in the future. He was kind and incredibly informative about everything, even teaching me about the IDE I was using!

Jacob L is a very Knowledgeable and gifted tutor.

Jacob is an awesome instructor. He has provided invaluable help with my programming class. He is very patient and communicates in a way that is easy to understand. I have booked two sessions with him and look forward to the next one. He is a great tutor!

Kevin, 4 lessons with Jacob

Knowledgeable tutor who uses continuous two-way interaction

Jacob helped by walking me through the areas I was sketchy on and making sure I understood the steps, including how to debug line by line. This resulted in me getting caught up with the rest of my class. I liked how he asked me questions as we talked through it - not such hard ones that I felt stupid, but hard enough for him to be certain I understood each step.
