My tutoring career began as an undergraduate, when I helped students at Harper College and UIC with introductory programming classes. Over time, my repertoire expanded to include HS and undergraduate level mathematics and a wide range of programming languages and frameworks.

I am easygoing, organized, focused and goal oriented. I enjoy helping my students succeed and exceed their expectations in courses they previously struggled with. Breaking down complex concepts and making them easier to understand is what I pride myself on as a tutor. I also like to keep sessions fun!

I enjoy spending my free time developing mobile apps, listening to NPR, going to concerts, watching SNL, and hanging out with my wife and kids.

Very friendly and accommodating

We finished not just one but two assignments in half the time and he let me end the session early even though we scheduled 2 hours! Very kind and understanding of him, thanks Jason. :)

Jay, 1 lesson with Jason

Good tutoring

Knowledgeable and problem solver. I did completed my college Java homework with accuracy and solutions. I personally recommend him for Java tutoring. He has experience and knowledge to solve Java coding.

Perry, 1 lesson with Jason

Best Tutor Ever.

Before I met Jason, I was stuggling with my C++ class. I was having a hard time understanding the martial and not understanding the projects. Jason helped me by showing me examples, doing practice exercises, and explaining questions in a different way. With Jason help, I improved my grades. I highly recommend Jason for any computer science major.

Michael, 15 lessons with Jason

Incredibly patient and skilled tutor

Jason helped me not only understand the topics we covered ,but gave me some great examples and background as to why we are using them, and potential other ways of solving the problem, while showing me tips along the way. I found this very helpful as I learn best by seeing and understanding. I cannot believe how much I learned in such short time, he was very good at explaining without rushing and explained how his sessions worked ahead of time which was great. Definitely a rare tutor.

Great Lesson!

Jason was such a great help! We went over building a PHP proxy file to get around a series of CORs issues when making an api call. It was such a huge help to get past this obstacle.

Michael, 2 lessons with Jason
