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.
True problem solver, very patient
It's been a pleasure working with Seth. He is a true problem solver! The patience, encouragement and problem solving tips are commendable during my complex Python scripting. Seth's flexibility and honesty when working in sessions is very much appreciated. I will continue to get guidance from Seth. He is by far the best tutor + mentor I have come across and am truly grateful. Thank you, Seth for all the help.Joy, 9 lessons with SethTutor responded:
Wow! Thank you for the generous comments. I will try to live up to them.
Seth is very helpful on all topics we have covered in python so far. Very patient and open to different styles of tutoring. (Topics: pandas, matplotlab, loops)Niraj, 5 lessons with Seth
Great man and amazing tutor
Mr. Seth Murray is an exceptional tutor. I have been working with him for over 2 years learning Java and a few other languages. He is very knowledgeable in a variety of topics and is also hilarious. He is also very patient and kind. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor to anyone who needs help with topics he teaches. You will not regret choosing him as your tutor.Ali, 131 lessons with SethTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind review Ali. It has been an honor to walk along-side you as you have developed your programming skills.
Brilliant mind, and patient teacher
Seth is an excellent teacher, and kind, respectful, and considerate person as well. I have had the best experience with him as a tutor, and would recommend him without reservation. He is very knowledgeable about computer science as a whole, and I am sure much more, and I think he would be an asset to your learning experience.Haroon, 8 lessons with SethTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind comment, Haroon. It has been an honor to assist you.
Highly knowledgeable and skilled tutor
I’ve been working with Seth for about half a year and I can undoubtedly say that had it not been for him, I would not have advanced my programming knowledge as far as I have. Seth always found a way to explain topics if I did not understand them fully. His teaching techniques are very effective thanks to how skilled he is in programming.Sofia, 36 lessons with SethTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind review, Sofia. I always appreciate how thoughtful you are about the concepts that you are trying to apply in your programming.
Really knowledgeable in coding. highly recommend!
Seth helped my daughter with a complicated coding project and my daughter was pleasantly surprised to be able to complete the code in just one session. I had talked to two other tutors who said that the code could not be done in Python. But Seth had no problem teaching it to my daughter in Python. He was also really nice, patient and easy to understand. Highly recommend!Doris, 1 lesson with SethTutor responded:
Ha! Yes, Python is quite an amazing language. It can do a lot of things that many programmers aren't aware of (including me sometimes). :)
Proficient and Professional
Seth was great in tutoring for Java, HTML, and CSS Concepts. He is extremely proficient and able to explain very well. Also very professional, I highly recommend.Crystal, 9 lessons with Seth
Extremely helpful, patient, and overall just a great tutor! He runs through each scenario with you, letting you figure it out for yourself, or dropping small suggestions to help you find the answer!Xavier, 6 lessons with Seth
