I offer introductory Computer/Java classes for middle school students, and AP Computer Science, Java, and various other computer technologies for high school students. An EARLY START IN SUMMER will ensure excellence during the school year!

I hold a Master's in Physics and an Associate Degree in Computer Applications. I strive to create a learning environment that is comfortable for all students. My sessions are very interactive with hands-on coding and execution, and students work on programs about 60% of the time. Those who have never touched a computer should be as at ease in my class as those who have prior exposure. Also having a professional background in Computer Applications Programming aids my teaching abilities by portraying real-life scenarios to help students understand the concepts.

I have several years of professional experience and teach introductory concepts in:
- OO Concepts, the Java programming language, and the J2EE suite of products
- Web Technologies such as HTML, CSS, and Java Script
- SQL and Database Technologies such as Oracle, SQL Server, and DB2
- Adobe Creative Suite products such as Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Photoshop for both Graphic and Web Design.
- Other programming languages such as R Programming and Python

The key to being successful is to be ahead of the game, as technology touches every division of life. I am looking for highly motivated students; eager to share my learning experience and help the student succeed.
