About Jason

I am a life-long Chicagoan who earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science at UIC. I have 10 years of professional experience as a Software Engineer, and a true passion for teaching. I specialize in tutoring Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Discrete Math, Finite Math, core Java, Java Spring, C#, .NET, Python, Linux, and HTML.

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 son.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ASP.NET

I have worked on ASP.NET projects in college and professionally.

Computer Programming

I have been writing Java code since the 90's. I've tutored computer programming in college and professionally.

Computer Science

I have a Master's in Computer Science from UIC and 10+ years experience as a Software Engineer.

HTML

HTML is a great language for anyone interested in designing and building websites and apps. I use HTML personally and professionally and enjoy sharing my knowledge.

Java

Java a great language to learn. The Java language is the foundation of many desktop, Android and server applications. Java is a great skill to have when entering college or the workforce. If you are struggling with Java programming concepts, object-oriented design or debugging practices I would be excited help.

JavaScript

I work with JavaScript professionally. When errors pop up, I use the JavaScript console in Chrome to track down bugs and resolve issues.

PHP

My website is written in PHP. I recommend it for small to medium sized websites. PHP is fun to learn and you can get results right away.

Python

Python is great for scripting and file processing. I have used it to build a real-time traffic congestion map. If you want to work as a systems admin, DBA or data analyst it is a valuable tool.

SQL

SQL is a great way to SELECT, UPDATE and INSERT data on your desktop, mobile device or server. I enjoy sharing my knowledge about this powerful query language. SQL has been a critical skill in all my professional roles.

UNIX

UNIX/LINUX comes standard with many powerful command line tools, that can be used for file processing, scheduling and networking. I use CENT OS (a version of Linux) at my current position and I tutored students on Solaris (a version of UNIX) at UIC.

Web Design

My strengths are in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP. I use frameworks like Bootstrap, JQuery and Java Spring for the desktop and mobile websites that I develop.

Phenomenal Tutor for College Level CS. — I am currently an undergrad studying computer science, and although I love the material, it seems to fly by a little too fast. I decided to ask Jason for some help, and he was able to very clearly demonstrate the concepts to me. On our first session, he asked me my preferred way of learning, and I explained to him that I need to be able to visualize what is going on conceptually to fully understan ...
