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.

Dedicated and Focused Tutor

Jason was very helpful with my understanding of python and computer coding. He would always show up prepared and ready to tackle any problems and was committed to solving any task at hand. His dedication and kindness was crucial to my learning of python. Thanks, Jason!

Ramzi, 2 lessons with Jason

Jason is a very knowledgeable, very approachable, & very helpful tutor

Jason was an immense help. Before the session, I was very intimidated by my Artificial Intelligence programming assignment and at a loss of how to begin. With Jason's help, I now have a working framework to use, a clearer idea of my professor's expectations and most of all an assignment that now feels approachable to me. So, I'm very grateful to Jason.
