Some student's feeback:"He had an uncanny ability to gauge people's level when it came to understanding and writing code and would vary his degree of help accordingly. For students that were new to code he would have the patience to explain step by step until you understood the code you were writing. If students who have coded before had problems, he would come around and point at areas where they should check again, letting them work out their own bugs. For times when the same question were asked (he also had a good memory for who asked what questions throughout the semester), he would show you how to use the resources around you, be it online or in the lecture notes, to work out your own questions. If that did not work, he would again sit down and go through your code until you understood what it does. In short, he not only helped teach how to code but also how to be a self-efficient and independent."
"He's a really good demonstrator who is very helpful, but not overly helpful. I like how he points or hints to what is wrong in your code but actually gets you to fix it. He's also pretty funny and easy to talk to."
