About William

I retired several years ago from the practice of law. My wife and I recently moved to Southeast, AZ where I am now actively involved in several hiking Meetups and pursuing a degree in Engineering at Cochise College. I learned C in the spring of 2012 by virtue of a course which I audited at Harvard University through EDX. After taking this course, I enrolled in the College of Engineering at ASU where I attained a grade of A+ in C++. I am currently studying C# at Cochise College. I have also studied Java. My undergraduate degree is in Business Administration with a major in quantitative systems and minor in finance. I have been an entrepreneur most of my life and have started and managed many businesses of my own.

I am a lifetime learner and have a wide variety of interests including STEM, literature, playing stringed instruments (most recently the banjo). I enjoy meeting and sharing information with people of all ages and am looking forward to becoming actively involved in the South Eastern Arizona community. I enjoy all aspects of learning, knowledge and education and, by virtue of experience in tutoring my own sons, attempt to present information in a logical understandable way. The areas that I am capable of tutoring go well beyond math and include, English, Social Studies, Business and Office Communication.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Business

In 1973, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration for Arizona State University with a major in Quantitative Systems and minor in Finance. For a brief time I was a computer programmer for the Monroe the Calculator division of Litton Corporation in which position I met with clients and developed many small business applications for its new Mini-Computer.

In 1977, I earned a Juris Doctorate and from that year until 2010 had my own private law practice where I assisted many clients in small business formation, contract preparation, litigation and business planning.

I have been an entrepreneur since my early years and have owned and managed many other businesses.

I am familiar with business formation, planning, budgeting, finance and accounting, tax and regulatory compliance.

C

I studied C in the spring of 2012 by virtue of a course which I audited at Harvard University through EDX. After taking this course, I enrolled in the College of Engineering at ASU where I attained a grade of A+ in C++. I am currently studying C# at Cochise College. I have also studied Java for which I have passed a proficiency exam administered by WyzAnt and currently approved to tutor in that area.

C#

I studied C in the spring of 2012 by virtue of a course which I audited at Harvard University through EDX. After taking this course, I enrolled in the College of Engineering at ASU where I attained a grade of A+ in C++. I have also studied Java for which I have passed a proficiency exam administered by WyzAnt and currently approved to tutor in that area. Last semester, I studied Programming Logic which ties together all programming elements of C, C++, Java and now C#. I am completing coursework in C# and as a result of those studies know how to create graphicly enhanced forms on several pages, switch from one page to another, accept, manipulate and return user input.

In view of the foregoing, I am qualified to teach C++ and provide an overview of the most popular languages now in use.

Computer Science

My undergraduate degree in Business Administration (1973) focused on Quantitative Systems in which I learned not only business statistics but computer science and Fortran. I later took classes in COBOL In the course of operating my own law practice; I became well-versed in setting up my own computer operating systems and used and programmed in many programs.

English

I have, as you can see from my profile, completed high school, have a BS in business and a Juris Doctorate. All of my business and personal experiences revolve around communication. In business and law, communication verbally and in written form, must conform to the acceptable norms. My knowledge of the English language and its rules is extensive. I am also well aware of the part that creativity plays in communication.

MATLAB

In addition to the computer science and programming skills set forth in the following paragraph, I have learned and used Matlab in my basic engineering courses at ASU where I received an "A". I am also familiar with TI graphing calculators and Desmos.

Public Speaking

In my earlier years, I was a member of toastmasters. In the 70's, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a Juris Doctorate. I was engaged in the general practice of law for 35 years during which I made a substantial number of detailed presentations in court. I was, in addition, a involved in leadership roles in Chambers of Commerce and other business leads groups which required public presentation. I am well aware of how presentations should be put together and presented in front of people.
