Experienced high school tutor, college tutor, university instructor, and corporate trainer.

I bring a broad range of real-world science and engineering experience to teaching. I provide analysis methods to recognize patterns in problems, and provide methods based on type of problem. I apply a spiral methodology to teaching, which trains students for real life problem solving.

Tutored algebra and trigonometry to high school and freshmen college students. Taught university-level general chemistry and organic chemistry for many years. Taught computer programming and systems analysis, object-oriented analysis and design, requirements gathering, use cases, agile methodology, and several related topics in a work environment, both with courses and as a mentor. I have taught a few computer languages such as C/C++ and used many more, so ask me about computer languages.

In business-related fields, I will teach technical writing, and mentor project managers and entrepreneurs.

C

I started programming in the C language in 1984 based on Kernighan and Ritchie's book "The C Language"; I taught C in work environments from 1985 through 1987, and taught a formal course in corporate environments 1990-1992 and 1995-1997.
I took a formal university course in C++ in 1996.
I've also had several other formal university programming courses which helps describe the formal characteristic of a programming language. I produced a full set of C Language course notes in about 1991. The C language is a procedural language, which is not strongly typed. Procedures are part of many other languages, even object oriented languages. The syntax of C language is subset of C++ language and similar to many other languages such as Perl. When teaching a programming language you must teach the syntax, but there are numerous other concepts which may be emphasized or deemphasized in a curriculum, such as methodology, patterns, language theory.

C++

I started programming in the C language in 1984 based on Kernighan and Ritchie's book "The C Language"; I had a formal university course in C++ in 1996. I've also had several other formal university programming courses (e.g Java, Fortran, Pascal), which contributes to skill in describing the formal characteristic of a programming language.
I've taught Object Oriented analysis and design techniques since 2000, mostly incorporating Agile methodology, such as use case analysis, which allows transition into systems architecture. I've used many other OO languages such as Smalltalk and Python.
C++ is my personal preferred language for programming (although, in time, my personal preference may change to python).

Computer Science

Computer Science is a broad field today.
I started in 1980 with a Fortran programming course at Texas A&M. I began studying Electrical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin in 1983. I had a great interest in microprocessor architecture and assembly languages at UT Austin. I started programming in C language in 1984 based on Kernighan and Ritchie's book "The C Language". By 1996 I had over two dozen languages on my resume. I had a formal university course in C++ in 1996. I've also had several other formal university programming courses (e.g Java, Fortran, Pascal, compiler design) which contributes skills in describing formal characteristic of a programming languages.
I've taught Object Oriented analysis and design techniques since 2000, mostly incorporating Agile methodology, such as use case analysis, which allows transition into systems architecture. I've used many other OO languages such as smalltalk, and python.
C++ is my personal preferred language for programming (although, in time, my personal preference may change to python).
I've also had a university course in SQL, Unix/Linux, Bash, a few more I can think of now. I don't list languages on my resume any longer. There are too many to list and the more obscure languages such as Snobol and Lisp are not of great commercial importance. More recently I've been teaching Agile techniques, full life-cycle. Requirements gathering with use cases, OOAD, Enterprise Architecture frameworks, and Project and Program management. So, there has been a bridge into the business management aspects of computer science and systems.
I have research interest in Meta-Modeling and Natural Language Processing.

DOS

I performed DOS programing from about 1982 to 1995. I wrote device drivers, batch files, applications and networking solutions, often interfacing with BIOS and DOS Interrupts. I did a lot of disassembly in 1983-1985, so I was very familiar with the Object Module Format of DOS. I've seen the evolution of DOS, and still use Win32 api today. I still use Cmd scripts also.

Organic Chemistry

I've taught Organic Chemistry at Tyler Junior College and Colorado State University on a part time basis over the years from 1990 to 1996. I have completed about 5 years of graduate level chemistry course at University of Texas at Austin and Colorado State university while enrolled in Ph.D. programs but I did not complete either program. Also, I have had research experience in chemistry and materials science over the years from 1979 to 1995. Much of the chemistry theory and methodology can be taught, but only working lots of problems with feed back will program the students mind to have the necessary intuition to work organic chemistry problems. I worked as a tutor of organic chemistry from 1992 to 1994.
