Dale is awesome! Very patient and great at explaining complicated concepts in an easy to follow manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him to other students.
Very content with Dale's teaching style! He broke things down for me to understand in a way my university lecturer hasn't. Dale is very knowledgeable, easy going and quick to respond to messages. Highly recommend for C programming and I will be using his services again :)
Dale been very helpful, easy to get along with and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.
Dale is a legend! With his patience and knowledge I would definately recommend him to people needing a tutor in web development. Thanks again Dale.
I met with Dale first time on short notice for help with an assignment, and since then have returned twice a week for tutoring because he explains things in a very logical way and is very patient. He is good at taking a different approach if I don't understand the first time. He also is super flexible and will meet after work or on the weekend! Would highly recommend.
I don't usually leave reviews however I felt compelled to on this occasion. Dale responded to my request within 30 minutes (which is exactly what a stressed student wants!!) After a quick few questions we had arranged a mutually beneficial time to meet, which by the way Dale's availability is nearly 24/7...another thing a stressed student will appreciate. His office is well equipped and comfortable. Most importantly though, Dale's knowledge is incredible! His ability to switch between programming languages effortlessly is almost hard to believe. Being ex-University staff Dale is very familiar with all IT units and assignments, (in fact he is better than most of the current lecturers. Kinda wish he was still there) and as a result he is able to explain complex problems in such a way that is humble and easy to understand. I strongly recommend Dale to anyone looking for help. I will definitely be returning.
Dale obviously knows his work and has been very practical and cooperative with my project Jeff
Dale is one of the best tutors I've ever had. He's incredibly supportive, knows his stuff back to front, and goes at a pace that's best suited for you! I highly recommend him and am confident in the fact that if I ever need help, Dale is just a message away!
