Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

I have been involved with computer programming since taking a FORTRAN class at MIT in 1984. I worked in aerospace for 15 years and programmed in FORTRAN, Jovial, and ADA languages. In 1990, I worked at Motorola as a software engineer and was the 1st engineer to use the "C" language for a pager. I have been involved in telecommunications since that time and computer programming has been one of my daily tasks for the past 10 years as a "Software Systems and Support Engineer" at Sirius XM Satellite Radio.
Computer Science,

Computer Science

I have been in the computer business since graduating from MIT in 1982 and the distinction (if any) between CS (computer science) and CP (computer programming) is subtle if any exists. Perhaps, CS engineer creates algorithms and the CP engineer implements algorithms. As further evidence on my qualifications, I have the following 3 courses on my Master's transcript: COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE I - CS612 COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE 2 - CS614 SELECTED TOPICS IN COMPUTER SCIENCE - CS908
Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word

Finite Math,

Finite Math

Finite math is a broad term that means any math but calculus. I am approved in many math subjects (including calculus) so I have the necessary background to teach finite math. I have a BS degree from MIT and I work fulltime as an engineer so I have strong math aptitude.

All reviews dedicated patient

Very patient and adaptable to student needs.

David taught me the initial chapters I've been having issues with and cleared up a lot of confusion. I have a very particular way of learning where I need something repeated several times and to use different real life examples, and David was very patient. Hopefully with the time he dedicated to teach me I will be able to pass my final.
