SQL is the language of data and databases. It's an essential tool for programmers working in all sorts of fields and on all sorts of computing machines. I look forward to teaching student how to use SQL and databases such as MySQL/MariaDB, Oracle, and SQLite.

About Jason F.

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/C++/C#
* Java
* JavaScript & TypeScript
* 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.

Lessons priced to be affordable, and discounted for my availability (odd hours due to my geographic location and regular job's schedule).

24 hour notice required for cancellations/changes.

Jason is knowledgeable, patient, clear, and helpful. It's been a true pleasure working with him. He helped me get my project built far faster and better than I could have possibly done without him.

Jason is teaching my 4th grader Python. Jason is a great teacher and my son likes him a lot. He is good with kids and my son says it is challenging but he has been enjoying his lessons very much.

Simply he was well informed and very knowledgeable with PHP and programming in general.

I've been taking lessons from Jason for a month or two now and I can definitely say that I have gained a lot more knowledge and experience working with him than I would have working on code myself. He knows when to help and when to have hands off which is extremely important when learning how to program. It definitely helps when it comes to actually learning how to do it myself instead of having someone do it for me. Have some patience going into it because programming isn't as simple as some would believe especially if you're trying to understand it. So if you want to learn how to program or need help with something he's definitely the guy.

Jason tried his best to explain what he knew, but I don't think he did a great job and understanding what I wanted to learn. I knew my lesson was going to be an odd one, since I have a unique existing app I wanted to learn how to make small edits on, AND that app was not functioning correctly during our lesson. But right at the beginning I explained that I wasn't trying to fix what was wrong with the app since I had already hired someone to do that and he was working on it. Jason still got a little preoccupied with trying to make the app work when I knew he wasn't going to be able to and I feel like it took time away from what I wanted to learn. When we finally did get to things that would be helpful for me to know later his descriptions were unlinear and confusing, even when I asked him to lay certain things out for me clearly. It seemed like he was still interrupting what I wanted to remember by trying to "fix" my app. I understand why this lesson would have been tricky for a teacher to teach, but I was still disappointed.

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 has a very easy-going manner, and is interested in helping. I would recommend him as a teacher.

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!

Wow, blew my mind. We did an exercise that helped me establish a framework to understand how PHP works in an integrated application environment. Thank you Jason! Look forward to our next lesson!
