Personal Statement

Coding is hard, but you do not have to learn coding alone. I've seen too many times, and experienced myself, the massive frustration and discouragement that occurs when learning a language for the first time, or adventuring into more advanced topics. Hours of debugging seem useless. Lecture slides seem to make no sense. It is these students, who feel bamboozled and stuck, who I am best suited to help. I'm versed in undoing beginner mistakes and making lecture content intelligible and practica...


I was not able to complete Python code as a beginner because I had s misunderstanding of ?class?, but he explained really well with some examples. He solved the problems really quickly and explained how he did them. I will be getting his help next time!

Dave has helped my son with his mid-term exam. My son feels this is a very good start for him and help him with better understanding. Will definitely have Dave for future tutoring.

I know from experience how difficult it can be to find a great tutor. So when I found Dave, I was thrilled. I specifically need help with Python and Dave is incredibly knowledgeable about coding in a multitude of languages. He's so patient and understanding. And he's great at explaining what's going on with the code, including the "why's". I've met with Dave in person and also done online tutoring with him. Both worked out really well. He's been a life saver.

Dave helped my son score 96.77% on his final exam in Python, which brought his grade up to an A- for the semester. Within a short period of time, David went through the new concepts and practice with my son. He successfully encouraged him to practice more and become confident for the final exam. We hope to work with David again this summer.
- Liping F. from San Mateo, CA
Dave has helped me complete two C++ assignments. He has really filled in the gaps of what my professor has taught, clarifying certain programming procedures and how to write coherent, concise, and accessible code. I recommend Dave two thumbs up.
