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.

I currently work with Visual Studio 2015 to develop applications for the legal technology sector. I also helped a student design and develop a web-based movie database with C# and Microsoft SQL Server. I am always excited to share my skills and experiences with web application development.

Very knowledgeable and patient

Very patient. I particularly enjoyed his lesson because, I'm a learn-by-doing person and he gave me the opportunity to do and at my own pace also. He tried to understand where I'm coming from to better help me.

Moneta, 2 lessons with Jason

Very nice and knowledgeable

He helped me review some key points in JavaScript. It really helped me understand some of the fundamental and harder concepts that I was not understanding. Excellent tutor!

Jessica, 1 lesson with Jason

Patient, Quick Thinking, Knowledgeable

Jason went over a couple of Java assignments and object-oriented programming concepts with me that I was really struggling with on my own. He really understands that each person learns differently and is able to break down concepts down into understandable descriptions. He's also capable of quickly grasping an ongoing problem and break it down into manageable sections while explaining what's happening. As a student, while I do want my assignments to work, I need to know why things work a certain way and how classes and objects work together to create a functioning program. You can also tell he really understands Java and its history and it is great working with someone who enjoys coding and is very familiar with the purpose behind the code. I would recommend Jason to anyone trying to understand any level of coding or development.

Patient and helpful

Jason helped me last minute install a java application. He was very patient with me since I do not have a lot of experience. He was very helpful walking me through each step.

Joe, 2 lessons with Jason

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jason was very knowledgeable of MVC architecture and structural computer science concepts. We debugged a very complex app together and his helpful, patient, and accommodating style helped me complete a critical project for work. I am very grateful for his time and lessons. I highly recommend Jason for Java and other advertised expertise.

I am a novice WordPress user and Jason patiently guided me through a major obstacle I was having in the construction of my website. I'm back on track and ready to move forward. Thanks, Jason--and Thanks, Wyzant!

He is a natural teacher and really knows his material. I have already scheduled my next session with him this weekend. I highly recommend him for any learning needs.

Ashley, 15 lessons with Jason

Great teacher, explains every step

Jason really helped me understand Python a lot better and how to code an application that will help me solve my objective. He’s very patient and explains every step in great detail. He even helped me understand IT concepts that I was only partially familiar with.

Lauren, 2 lessons with Jason

Incredibly patient, Aced my assignment

I have had several tutoring sessions with Jason. He's definitely the most patient tutor out there and I feel comfortable asking any questions about my code. If you need help in understanding code and concepts definitely reach out to Jason for a session!
