Bio

I have a variety of disparate interests ranging from painting, to game programming, to mushroom farming. I have past experience in both tutoring and professional training. I love learning, and helping others to find that same passion is the most rewarding experience in life.

I have a variety of disparate interests ranging from painting, to game programming, to mushroom farming. I have past experience in both tutoring and professional training. I love learning, and helping others to find that same passion is the most rewarding experience in life.

I have professional experience in software design and programming, primarily focused on networking, web APIs, and bots. I am most proficient in Python, JavaScript, and HTML, but have differing familiarity with several other languages, tools, and frameworks. In addition to this, I have previous work experience as a process and system trainer.

I've attended the University of Louisville for Computer Science and Computer Engineering for three years. In that time, I've taken several courses on computer systems and software engineering topics including: object-oriented programming, data structures, logic design, operating systems design, cryptography, embedded systems, and relational databases.

In total, I have been tutoring/training for around two years. The age groups I've tutored range are fourteen and up. For the time being I am choosing to focus on tutoring programming, predominantly for Python as it is my preferred language. I feel that my vast range of different personal interests grants me a special capacity for relating topics and concepts that proves very useful for tutoring.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

He was very knowledgeable in the subject Python and was very patient with me as a beginner. He knew how to ask the right questions and re-word the question as well to be able to get understanding where you are at.

Nick, 1 lesson with Jacob

Very knowledgeable, prepared, and responsive.

Jacob has been successfully helping me accomplish challenging projects in a very well organized, step-by-step , and detailed manner. He always explains the purpose of every line of code, and always ensures my repetitive questions are thoroughly answered. I’ve learned a tremendous amount on the logical application of different modules. He always finds creative and logical ways to overcome each programming challenge as they arise. In addition, he always quickly responds to my request for lessons. Overall, he’s been very skillful in helping me develop programs to automate manual tasks that I didn’t think was possible. Truly exceptional tutor, highly recommended!

Excellent Tutor

Jacob assisted me with a python coding assignment. Not only was his help timely, but Jacob also made sure to explain thoroughly why syntax was used. Patient and knowledgeable to say the least.

Jaden, 2 lessons with Jacob

Brilliant tutoring from a skilled coder and a patient teacher!

Jacob taught more advanced java script, with some associated languages explained in thorough detail and in an understandable format. Jacob appears to have a highly intelligent personality yet is extremely patient and accommodating. Jacob encourages at ever chance and is able to translate complex scenarios into comprehensible and coherent meaning. He's easy-going personality guarantees interaction satisfaction for all ages and levels. I accomplished all that was needed in my progression towards my goals. Highly recommend for everyone interested in learning from a master instructor. 5 Golden Stars!

Meleake, 32 lessons with Jacob

Great and knowledgeable tutor

We went through a Python coding assignment in which I was stuck with errors and I did not know what to do. Jacob is an incredible tutor, he has tons of knowledge since he figured out the errors in a very short time. Jacob was a Godsend, he explained very well, detailed, and clearly, and he is very patient. He is very easy to get along with. I am very happy that I found him. He is definitely a Gem and I highly recommend him!!
