About Leonard

I have a strong STEM background. I was a National Merit Finalist out of high school. I've taught elementary college algebra at UA and JSCC. I taught COBOL at BSC. I've taught MASM at MIles College. And I taught CIS courses for 10 years at JSCC. I have a BS in mathematics/chemistry, MA in mathematics, PhD in computer sciences. I maintain my skills.
Although I live in Cropwell, I work in Birmingham (Meadowbrook) and have a flexible schedule. I normally spend Monday night-Thursday night in Vestavia Hills. I can handle English grammar or literature also. I coached soccer (some competitive) for 14 years. I raised three college graduates and am a grandfather of 6.
