Over a decade of Java experience from its initial version to its current release of Java 7. I have utilized Java on countless projects at Fortune 500 companies as well as on my own. The approach I use to teach Java includes slides, working examples and quizzes to ensure the student understands the subject matter. Programming in Java can be rewarding in many ways if a solid foundation is established and content is tailored to the experience of the student (e.g. beginner, intermediate, and advanced). My training approach will prepare those interested in utilizing Java for hobby purposes, passing classes, or enhancing a career.
