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!

Extremely patient and knowledgeable

I was struggling on my final project for a Python course but Jacob was able to help me complete it. He was patient, well-prepared and made sure that I understood everything before moving on.

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, 16 lessons with Jacob

Jacob is extremely patient and he explains everything very thoroughly. I only ask Jacob for help with my Python code, because he is the best.

Jacob explained to me how to create classes in Python. He sat with me and taught me how to write the code line by line. But he did not tell me the answer right away, he challenged me to think and I learned much better thanks to him.

Great tutor!

Jacob is an excellent tutor. Able to provide insight into all key questions I had for Python this semester. He was patient and kind in each session. He addressed each question carefully and provided very clear, thoughtful answers. Very helpful!!

Amazing teacher

Jacob is an awesome instructor! This was my first lesson understanding algorithms and the basics with Python! Jacob was patient, helped me grasped the concepts and applied it to my class material. Jacob did a great job guiding the session and providing clear and simple direction.

The Best

My forever Favorite. Jacob is the perfect tutor. I am taking Programming Principles GIS I. I know nothing about programming or python. I thought this class would be a basic learning class. I was wrong. The day before my first lesson, I though about dropping this class and going from a Bachelors in GIS to just a GIS cert. Thankfully, I found this website and I found Jacob. Without him, I wouldn't be this far. I am beginning to understand the fundamentals more. He is encouraging and explains how to get to the final answer in a way to make you understand. He asks questions in a way that gets you thinking on the right track. I like how he helps me figure out what to google, so that way I can look for the right examples. He's very patient. Thank you for helping me.

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!
