I am a senior software engineer, working in the finance industry. I hold a Master's degree in Computer Science and Statistics.

Over the years, I have developed software using various technologies including C, C++, Java, Perl, Python, HTML, Javascript, jQuery, AngularJS, Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, Informatica, Unix (Solaris) and Linux.

I have been involved in all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and have experience in software design and architecture, software dev...
I really appreciate Jean-Benoit's help with my Oracle issue. Though we did not get all the way to a resolution I think we got far enough that I can get it over the finish line. Thank you again for your help, Jean-Benoit!

At first, I needed someone to help me install the sample employee database on my laptop. Unfortunately, I had to go through several unknowledgeable tutors before finding Jean-Benoit. Jean was able to follow the instructions and install the employee database AND explain what he was doing to me. I have since reached out to him for assistance with writing several challenging SQL queries and he cut through them like butter with a hot knife. He definitely knows what he is doing in regards to MySQL and SQL.

Great experience for my daughter in operating systems. Thoughtful instruction that was easy to follow considering the complexity of the class. No trouble getting time for instruction.

1) Dishonest. We started a lesson but there was a technical problem. He could not share his screen. We tried connect through a chrome extension. Did not work either. Ended up me sharing the screen. I asked to adjust the time, but he blamed me. He did not produce a single line of code during our class (Yes, Carl!). Still justifies his charge of 140$ per hour as appropriate. 2) Not prepared. I needed to code some parallel programming concepts (work scheduler, thread pool, etc.) in C++ using pthreads . I sent the problem set and stressed the problems I was interested. I ended up sharing my screen. So I did all the work; Jean just gave comments once in a while. It took us 30min to find a bug in a simple vector traversing and edge conditions. (Seriously?). When we started the work on thread pool assignment, he just googled some random code. He could not even explain it. 3) Not knowledgeable It was clear that Jean did not know how to solve any of the assignments. Stay away!

He helped me understand Samba server set up with Linux & Windows while walking me through correcting my errors and explained each step. I will definitely enjoy our next session.

We reviewed some Unix/Linux commands. We also worked on a SQL assignment for my class. I'll probably see Jean-Benoit in a couple weeks for a followup lesson. During our next lesson we'll probably review how Java and SQL can be combined, which is something I have never done before.

Answered all my questions, to say the least, he's wealth of information!!! Very easy to talk too, seems to understand very quickly exactly what you're trying to accomplish.
- Anthony P. from Lowell, IN
Explained a lot of the questions I had with a project I?m working on, would recommend JB for anyone needing help with Computer Science related topics.
- Tom C. from Berwyn, IL
Patient and able to think on his feet. Helped me very much to get a handle on a subject that was eluding me. Highly recommended and friendly. Would definitely work with him again.
- Joseph B. from Lincolnwood, IL
Jean Benoit is very knowledgeable. He is able to hit the ground running very quickly. We worked on dynamic programming and deterministic inventory problems. During our lesson, we worked efficiently to try to get me to understand how to do the problem and understand the concept.

print "If i had to describe JB as a tutor, let me ask you this question" print "I know he is expensive, but are you the type of person who will pay for quality / results?" def tutor(): answer = raw_input("Type 'yes''y' or 'no''n' and hit 'Enter'.").lower() if answer == "yes" or answer =="y": print "Suck it up, pay JB, and leave the session with a sense of accomplishment" elif answer == "no" or answer == "n": print "Goto wyzant, and choose another less costly tutor" else: print "You didn't pick yes or no! Please try again." tutor() tutor()

He was so great at explaining everything and breaking things down to make it easier to understand. I recommend him and will definitely be going back if I need anymore help! Thanks Jean!!
- Elaine M. from Chicago, IL
Jean-Benoit is very knowledgeable and thorough. He wants to try and understand the problem or issue first before solving it. I would definitely schedule another lesson with him.
- Nick Z. from River Grove, IL
He was very fast in responding my email and request. Very knowledgeable and patient. i like the fact that he spontaneously helped me and he read the assignment ahead of time. He didn't waste time at all. He was a fantastic tutor!
- Mana A. from Van Nuys, CA
Working on several mobile development projects and Jean-Benoit has been very helpful. Would highly recommend him as a patient and knowledgeable tutor.
- Heather W. from Parker, PA
Simply amazing!! Would not go to another tutor ! He's the best! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a programming tutor !
- Samantha Z. from Macomb, MI
Explains everything very clearly and really knows his stuff. Also interesting to talk to about things not related to the tutoring. If you need a tutor, this is your guy, worth every penny!
- Evan D. from Schaumburg, IL
Jean-Benoit was great at explaining python concepts and how to approach a problem statement for a homework assignment. I was able to take what he went over to complete the rest of my assignment.
- Maricela G. from Chicago, IL
JB really knows his stuff, has a lot of experience programming, and will go the extra mile to get you what you need.
- Philip S. from Chicago, IL
Jean-Benoit was extremely knowledgeable and patient as he helped me understand advanced SQL concepts from a graduate-level course.
