Hello there! My name is David, and I am a Software Engineering honors student currently pursing a Bachelor's degree at DePaul university in Chicago, IL. With already two years of 5-star quality (over 100 "5-star" reviews across various other platforms I teach on) teaching/tutoring under my belt thus far, I have worked with over 250 students in various computer programming and game development related disciplines, helping them go from complete beginners to development masters, raising grades and creating personal projects together. Programming, whether you've been doing it for years or have just dipped your feet into it, is difficult. Thankfully, I am here to assist at whatever pace works best for you.

My knowledge of programming is almost entirely self-taught, as I have always had an insatiable appetite for learning and growing as an individual. Fluent in Java (especially teaching the basics to new comers), C#, and the Unity3D professional game engine, I have been programming and making video games for 5 years, with 2 self-published titles currently released on Steam, the world's largest commercial game distribution platform.

I am the Founder, CEO, and Lead Programmer of a self-publishing indie game development studio with a released and shipped title, and another currently in the works! I have been assisting students for the past two years who have wanted to learn Java or Unity3D from the ground up with zero prior experience, though I have also help students currently enrolled in a program through school that utilizes the same subjects.

As for my teaching approach, I can move slow and steady, working at a very basic level to describe all the intricacies and fundamentals of programming, remaining as patient as I need to be as you take your time to fully understand the material at hand. Or, I can work a bit faster, giving those with a bit more experience in programming and game development a more general concept of where they should go in order to progress forward

extremely knowledgeable and super easy to work with

I first reached out to David because I was having trouble with Unity. I met with him for an hour and a half and he was able to answer every single question I had in as much detail as I wanted. To this day, I have had countless lessons with David and I have yet to find any topic that he is not very knowledgeable in. He has made my experience using Unity so much better and easier, and because of him I have been able to build a couple of games, and I feel as though I understand Unity and coding much better. Not only is he incredibly capable when it comes to using Unity and coding, but he is also a very good teacher. He is super easy to talk to, is calm and patient, and will explain and reexplain a concept to you as much as you need. David is also flexible and lets you design your own experience with him, which is not the case with some tutors who always prefer to do it their way. Lastly, and most importantly, he genuinely cares that you learn and understand what you are doing/learning, which makes him the best teacher/tutor that I’ve ever had. I would recommend him to anyone at any level. P.S. He also has a deep understanding of many different aspects of coding and computers.

Best Unity Tutor Out There!!!

David is by far, the most knowledgeable Unity tutor I have come across on Wyzant. He is detailed in his explanations and always informs you about best practices. I honestly can't say enough about him. Highly recommend!!
