Educating minds of all ages is one of my passions and the other is design and function. I grew up in the infant stage of technology and quickly understood the importance technology had to offer society. I later enrolled into a Computer Science program at a local community college, where I learned computer languages. I later found an interest in design and attended The Art Institute of California where I was graduated with a Bachelors degree of Science in Interactive Media Design.
I find inspiration between two worlds of design and function; therefore closing the gap by creating the infrastructure that puts the two worlds together. Once I refined my skills in web development, I was graduated with a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. This was the final vehicle I needed to show businesses that web development was a necessary practical application for today's competitive market.
I began teaching at a college level in 2007, where I specialized in E-commerce Web Development and Career Planning & Development. In 2008, I began tutoring high school students on web development and practical applications.
I educate my students by helping them define what their goal is in each lesson. This helps each student focus and stay engaged with all learning objectives. I then develop a lesson plan that is fun and easy to understand. I teach each lesson by using a four step approach. I talk about what we will be learning and doing, so that each student knows what to expect. Next, I demonstrate the lesson by using visual aids or step by step instruction for the student to take notes. Then I have the student redo their own example on what was just covered. Finally, I have each student explain everything they just did. This helps me determine the student's mastery level of the lesson.
