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.

Joanne, 9 lessons with Jason

Excellent tutor!

Jason was phenomenal in helping me troubleshoot a complicated assignment. He was understanding of my limited knowledge of the python program and guided me on the ins and outs of what the assignment question was really asking for. Not only that, he was very kind and patient, which means the world to me. It's hard for me to understand concepts very quickly, so his no-rush approach was very welcoming. I only wish I hadn't waited so long to ask for help but Jason was there to guide me. I was at my wit's end in trying to complete the assignment and I was very close to dropping the class. Not only did I not have to drop the class but the best part is that I managed to pass with an A!! If you're looking for someone who is knowledgeable about programming concepts and is compassionate about teaching, you can't go wrong with having Jason as your tutor. I look forward to more tutoring sessions. :D Thank you Jason for all the help you gave me!

Knowledgeable & Can Teach

I'm a mediocre Developer with 25 years of experience and in need of a skills upgrade. In the course of three lessons Jason has made sense of technologies I had only grasped onto bits of and couldn't stay awake through another training video for. Using a useful example (a personal website for my portfolio) he is bringing the technology landscape all together for me and it's fun, even when debugging. Jason is very patient, often answering the same question multiple times, takes his time and is clear (he would be good with children and non native English speakers). The lessons are not low cost but well worth it, particularly considering what tech "training" (usually cert crams) costs and what little you get out of them. Consider him if like me your skills are dated.

Steve, 14 lessons with Jason

Positive Experience - Will be using again.

Jason didn't just solve my problem, but rather helped me to understand how to solve it which is very valuable. Great experience and will certainly be using his services again.

Clint, 5 lessons with Jason

Tuan, 7 lessons with Jason

amazing and nice teacher:3

He was very soft and slow for me to understand it better and never rushed me and even let me do things so I can understand it better :3 and I didn’t feel rushed or scared to ask questions

Joil, 11 lessons with Jason

Helpful and easy to work with

Jason answered all of my questions and was very helpful and to the point. I would definitely use his services again in the future if the need arises, and I would recommend him to others! Worth the money.

Jacob, 1 lesson with Jason

Extremely patent and able to do a large range of coding

I've tried 3 different tutors so far, he has been the best and worth the money. Does not get mad or frustrated at the student and will makes sure you understand it all
