David is a clear, patient and intuitive instructor. Easy to work with, and great to learn from -

David is a fine teacher: he is responsive to questions, demonstrates concepts in a variety of useful ways, and clearly knows his subject (AND know how to teach it) quite well We highly recommend him! Thanks David!

Jeff, 2 lessons with David

He is a patient tutor and he knows what he is teaching.

David taught me Visual Basic. He knows very well what he is teaching, and he is a patient tutor. I am going to arrange my schedules so I can have David regularly to help me with programming.

Ricardo, 5 lessons with David

extremely patient and understanding

David is able to dive right into your code and process it logically. I was astounded that he immediately started helping me as soon as he saw my screen. He didn't need to waste any time in looking thing a over for half the lesson. We dove right in and started fixing my code immediately. I look forward to working with him on a go forward basis.

Mike, 9 lessons with David

Knows his stuff

David is able to help me better understand my code often when I don't myself. He has proven to be very patient and knowledgeable. I will definitely use him for other languages currently he is helping me through Visual Basic

John, 2 lessons with David

Knowledgeable and patient, explains clearly.

Went over classes, inheritance, and over my Unity project. David talked broadly about C#, and how Objects work with C#. David is knowledgeable, patient, and speaks clearly. Also explains things clearly and concisely. I look forward to working with him again, and am glad I found someone to suit my needs with tutoring in Unity and C#.

David is very knowledgeable with great connections

We've met with David twice now and he has opened our eyes to a whole new world! He introduced us to events and camps going on at a local university that we didn't know were available. He was also able to listen to what my son is interested in learning, and evaluate where my son is at in the subject and pick up from there. He is exactly what we need for our situation.

Robin, 12 lessons with David

Great first lesson

My 12 year old son is keenly interested in learning to program. David is quite capable, but can he teach and can he teach children? So far, the answer is "yes". We met for our first lesson and what I like is that he has a plan. We are starting at a "ground zero" knowledge base. David helped us download the "course materials" and gave us our homework assignment. I feel that the ball is now in our court, meaning, we have a path to follow and it is up to my son to put forth the effort. We look forward to continuing our lessons with David.

Jeffrey, 3 lessons with David

Good tutor for a fair price

I found my first tutoring session to be very helpful and plan to schedule more appointments as needed. David's explanations were concise and clear while still challenging me to think for myself.
