I have 30 years of experience patiently teaching, tutoring and counseling hundreds of fine people both online and in-person, and was rated in the top 10% of Wyzant tutors for 2020. My goal is to help people grow in understanding so they can experience success and feel confident about themselves and their learning. I try to help the student learn by asking guiding questions and providing examples or direct guidance as needed.

Patient and understanding
Seth was very understanding of the situation and was able to be patient and helpful in getting to the heart of the problem and willing to make a game plan to tackle it head on. I am very optimistic he will be able to help us achieve our goals.Alissa, 10 lessons with SethTutor responded:
Thanks for your kind review Alissa. I really appreciate your feedback and I'll do whatever I can to help.
Seth really helped me with the individual functions in my code today. He thoroughly explained the process of creating them and passing them into my main, I see huge progress in my code!Carolyn , 4 lessons with Seth
Amazing Teacher! Highly Recommend
I was completely stumped by a project I was given and was having trouble coding certain aspects of my project. Seth patiently sat down and listened as I explained the idea behind my code. He was able to help me more than any other tutor I had met with!Carolyn , 4 lessons with Seth
Understanding and Helpful
My particular session called for more of trouble shooting code than teaching a lesson and he was incredibly helpful and offered great advice to my given situation.Luke, 1 lesson with Seth
Very knowledgeable and strategic!
I was having issues with writing scripts in Python and getting them to output to a text file. I messaged a total of 3 tutors and Seth was the not only the first to respond but was able to fit me in that day! Seth was able to not only pinpoint the issue, but show me a few pointers as well as provide me with a great document for future use. Would absolutely recommend Seth!Eric, 1 lesson with Seth
Kind, intelligent, and helpful
I’ve had 4-5 lessons with Seth on various computer tech subjects. He’s cool, calm, collected, and very knowledgeable. I’m very nervous by nature and afraid I’ll come off unintelligently ordinarily, but I don’t fear feeling that way working with Seth. He’s a very kind person and has gone above and beyond to help me. Can’t recommend him highly enough!Alanna, 6 lessons with Seth
Great teacher, very helpful
Great tutor, was knowledgeable and helpful on my Java project also got me in for a lesson the same day I messaged him as I was in a time crunch. Highly recommended.Sam, 2 lessons with Seth
Very Helpful, Highly recommend
Very helpful in teaching concepts not just giving the answers. My daughter feels so much better about coding now. She also commented how nice/ patient he was. Would highly recommend!Wendy, 2 lessons with Seth
Patient knowledgeable tutor
I’ve had several tutoring sessions with Seth and he’s wonderful. Truly a kind and patient man. His expert knowledge of Python was invaluable to me. I learned a lot, and he helped me gain confidence in my abilities throughout the lesson. Can’t recommend him highly enough!Alanna, 6 lessons with Seth
Seth helped so much!!
Very happy I found out about this tutor. Not only was he very knowledgeable, but very encouraging and he really helped me understand the material as well. I will definitely meet with him in the future when I need additional help with Python.Karmel, 1 lesson with Seth
