I've been using Python since high school. I've used it extensively in a research context, both for my PhD and in independent projects. I've written GUI apps, web app backends, and scripts for data processing, analysis, and visualization. I'm adept with the "Scipy stack" of numerical and scientific Python tools: numpy, scipy, pandas, and matplotlib. I'm also familiar with scikit-learn and have used it for analytics competitions on Kaggle. I'm one of the top 25 Python answerers on StackOverflow. I have over 50,000 reputation on the site and have answered more than a thousand questions.

In addition to solving my problem, Brendan is incredibly helpful at providing additional understanding of how to approach problems with Python / Pandas in order to get the most out of the framework, perform calculations efficiently, etc.

I contacted this CodeMentor specifically because I am very familiar with their invaluable quality contributions on StackOverflow. Without mentors like this, learning Python would be 1 million times harder.

My mentor is trying his best. The problem is my situation. I'm in over my head with a problem that is way too hard and my coding is way too poor. He's very patient with me.

Provided a way to my problem that I found elegant and wouldn't have come up with. I do understand its elegance, though.
