Currently teaching 3 sections at the High School (AP Comp SCI) and 3 sections at the jr High ( introduction to computer Science)

My tutoring provides an interactive, hands-on experience for the kids to create awareness, excitement and understanding of technology, science and mathematics. I primarily teach Scratch and Java. As I'm teaching introductory coding concepts, I also structure all the lessons around games so that it's a fun interactive experience. I believe that the more engagement there is, the better learning there is. The students want to solve puzzles to make their games better or work at all. I have taught more than 187 students in 2015 and over 200 in 2014, in either 1 hour workshops or longer series of lessons.

I'm a 26-year industry veteran.

I am also an IEEE member of Computer Society.
I am also known for actively supporting the industry at conferences and industry events for over ten years and am published in various industry magazines.

C

I have a 16 week curriculum teaching HS kids who know a little JavaScript and taught them how to code C for a cube sat; how to interface to the ttys0; how to parse data; what data types are such as int, long, doubles; how to construct for loops, check for fencepost errors; and create return codes. I am a systems engineer. I live and breath c code. I have been coding over 26 years in embedded systems. I use perl, and python and C as our tools as well as solder and interface boards. While my stuff isn't listed on any github, because a) its all proprietary and b) its low level bit banging, not upper level JavaScript pretty web GUIs. Plus, I deal with the real nitty gritty and have been for a good long while and I'm good at it.

Computer Engineering

I am a systems engineer. I integrate computer systems together, whether it be linux, windows, or macs. I develop software and configurations to make disparate components work together. I can teach others how to do the same as I have to write up my process for others on my team when I find issues with the "documentation" whether its Microsoft produced or otherwise. As I actually test what I write, as I am an engineer, not a tech writer.
