About Jesse

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 3 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 8 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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

MATLAB

I've been an avid MATLAB developer since college. My experience with MATLAB spans many sectors of software development, including system administrative tasks, executing algorithms, troubleshooting code, and maintaining GUIs. As a Research Assistant at OHSU in Portland, Oregon, I currently develop programs analyzing fMRI imaging data using MATLAB and other languages that interface with MATLAB.

Microsoft Excel

I've been an avid Microsoft Excel user ever since Office XP. College classes in which I've implemented Excel at an advanced level include Cell Biology, Applied Statistics, and Physiology. As a current Research Assistant at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), I handle troubleshooting and tutoring for several aspects of Excel, including importing data, formatting, and implementing VBA-powered macros. Recently, I've developed user-friendly Excel spreadsheet applications powered by VBA, both for OHSU and in the business field for SoCalMotoGear.

Python

I've applied Python in several upper-level college courses, including Computational Biology and Artificial Intelligence. During my undergraduate years, I've also tutored classmates in programming with Python. In addition, I currently develop and instruct others in Python at the Oregon Health & Sciences University.

Video Production

I took 4 years of video production classes during high school. My professional video editing and production experience spans over 8 years. I've tutored for this skill under a college setting (students and faculty) as a Digital Lab Assistant for 4 years. Lastly, I've been honored with a SkillsUSA National Conference award for my work with video editing.
