Overview

Hello, my name is Jason. I began tutoring at Windward Community College while taking classes towards a bachelor's degree in information and computer science.

I can help with:

* C
* HTML/CSS
* Java
* JavaScript
* PHP
* Python

My specialty is in Web programming.

My experience started in helping iCan program participants master entry level mathematics and language arts. I also helped many students pursuing degrees in either computer science or engineering with programming and networking courses. I am now employed in the IT industry and teach what I've learned to others in the community.

I exercise patience and try to be easy going. Sessions are relaxed and productive. I understand technical material can be challenging and I try to explain things simply and clearly and I welcome questions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

I had such a good experience with Jason. He is very friendly, efficient and patient, which is essential when you learn JavaScript! We even went way over what I initially wanted to learn; he is very experienced and has impressive knowledge in front and back-end development. I have been trying to learn JavaScript by myself for a while but always ended up abandoning. I am confident that I will achieve my goals with the help of Jason. I strongly recommend learning with him! It will also be a good time!

Jason worked with me during the first few weeks of my C/C++ programming course. C was incredibly difficult for me to grasp at first (I have 2+ years in Java prior to this), especially with the concept of pointers and tracing. Jason was patient with me as he provided me different verbal examples of how to understand pointers (and how to implement that code). What was most helpful was how he helped me to learn to trace the stack while a program runs. The method was simple (using a dry erase board and creating the stack on a written table), but his patience with me and constant practice and reinforcement made the entire concept easy by the time I reached the end of the course.

I would use Jason again for tutoring in the subject of C, and also his knowledge of PHP.

He is one of the best tutor I've ever had for my C-programming assignments!
He seems have a lot of experience in programming.
He is very patient so you can ask him any questions you have!
