My formal education was in Mathematics, especially applied Mathematics. I have spent the last 35 years in the Software Engineering field, including 6 years with Apple computer. Back when I was in college, I earned a good part of my expenses by tutoring Mathematics and Programming. I am cutting back on my full time Software Engineering work and would like to once again become a tutor where I can use my work experience, along with my academic knowledge to help people succeed in their Mathematical and Programming endeavors.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have always loved problem solving and have used algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus throughout my career in software engineering. I am now helping my own kids learn these useful tools for understanding and solving simple and complex math problems. It is a real pleasure to see the "light bulb" go off when they finally realize how to understand and solve what was just recently an incomprehensible problem.

Algebra 1

I have always loved problem solving and have used math and algebra since I was a kid. I have been able to use my math and problem solving skills for a long and rewarding career in software engineering.

Computer Engineering

I have been a professional software engineer since 1978. I am fluent in several computer languages, including Java, Octave, Groovy and Python. I have worked in small startups and large corporations, including Apple Computer. I have implemented systems across many domains, including, security, medical, government, retail, scientific modeling, among others. I have mentored many junior level engineers, introducing them to test driven development. domain driven design, and iterative software development.

General Computer

I have been a professional Software Engineer since 1978. I started my programming career using Pascal but have programmed primarily in Java since 1997. However, I am experiences with several other languages including Groovy, Scala, and Python. I have implemented large and small systems, from games to large scale enterprise applications. I have worked for a wide variety of companies, including the very large, Apple and Union Pacific Railroad, and small start-up ventures. I am taking on more tutoring as I approach retirement with the intent of tutoring to provide supplemental income during retirement.

Geometry

I have always loved problem solving and have used math and geometry since I has an outstanding geometry teach in 8th grade. It is amazing how much my geometry knowledge has been useful in a long and rewarding career in software engineering. I am now helping my own kids learn how geometry can be applied to real work problems. It is a real pleasure to see the "light bulb" go off when they finally realize how to understand and solve what was just recently an incomprehensible squiggle of lines and formulas.

Guitar

I have played Classical and Flamenco guitar, off and on, for the last 30 years. I have concentrated on Classical Guitar for the last 5 years, and have taken lessons.
