Bio

To all potential students of mine, I will be delighted to help you towards whichever goal you'd like to achieve from getting tutoring, whether it's for school, a certification exam, or even a personal project. I've tutored my own colleagues, fellow former classmates, graduate students, and even post-doctoral researchers for over 4 years with programming for a wide array of languages, including Python, R, Unix, MATLAB, and Excel VBA.

To all potential students of mine, I will be delighted to help you towards whichever goal you'd like to achieve from getting tutoring, whether it's for school, a certification exam, or even a personal project. I've tutored my own colleagues, fellow former classmates, graduate students, and even post-doctoral researchers for over 4 years with programming for a wide array of languages, including Python, R, Unix, MATLAB, and Excel VBA. I love to code, as well as teaching others the fun of having such a skill. More importantly, a common goal of my tutoring is to ensure the concepts behind the program has been taught, which will allow for a much better understanding and future growth in the skill. I've taught programming and general CS in many different contexts, from processing fMRI scans to writing scripts for better system administration to handling financial data in Excel. Perhaps most importantly, I am an expert in troubleshooting other people's code, and being able to explain concisely and clearly the issue during debugging.

In addition to programming, I also tutor in video production, mainly in the area of video editing. My goal is not only to instill the technical skills for software like Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop, but to also provide a better level of confidence in others when they tackle any video project going forward. My editing experience spans over 10 years, products which include a national award-winning promotional piece, a successfully funded Kickstarter project, and a full-length concert documentary. Whether it's graphics, exporting, or timing - I can teach anyone bring their video project to highest quality.

Exceptional Tutor

Jesse knows his material very well and has a very measured and patient teaching method. I felt very much as if I was collaborating rather than receiving instruction or lecture from a professor. I feel that the $ spent on my class would have been wasted had Jesse not helped to reinforce and explain the material across our series of sessions. Highly recommend.

Highly recommend Jesse for learning - very knowledgeable and compassionate

I can't say enough how much Jesse has helped me with my learning journey. What I appreciate about Jesse is that he is always prepared for our sessions and that our sessions are productive. Jesse is also very compassionate, kind, and I value his patience as the materials have been challenging for me to learn. He has sent me links to websites, API documentation, and links to materials that have also helped me learn on my own time. He also has a great sense of humor which is a requirement for me. If you are seeking someone who can help you learn and who truly cares about your success in your learning journey, I cannot recommend Jesse enough. He is a great tutor and a great teacher as well!

Python Help

Jesse walked through a Python assignment with me for my Python for Data Science class. He showed me easier methods to approach the problems more generally understand the concepts better. He was extremely patient and clear throughout the entire session. Would highly recommend Jesse for anyone looking for Python help!

Peter, 17 lessons with Jesse

Knowledgeable Machine Learning Tutor

Helped me out with understanding python code and how to apply it to my machine learning course. I've been stuck trying to learn python on my own and apply it to the assignments I have for this class and Jesse helped me understand both the code and the topics I wasn't understanding in class.

Great, patient teacher

Jesse helped me navigate some of the basic principles of Adobe Premier. He was incredibly friendly and was very patient with me as a real beginner. I look forward to learning more with him and would definitely recommend his help and services.

Michelle, 21 lessons with Jesse

The best tutor I've ever worked with!

He taught me more about bash scripting in one hour than my CS class did in 3 weeks. Jesse turned my whole summer term around in one session. I can't wait to work with him again!

Harrison, 2 lessons with Jesse

Great lesson

Jesse had the patience to help me out even though the internet connection was terrible, and my knowledge of the topic was low. We only had an hour, but it was good enough to achieve my task

Very Helpful Tutor!

Jesse was incredibly helpful with my python homework. He broke down large concepts into smaller, easy to understand parts, and explained complex processes in simple, relatable language.
