Boasting 25 years of application experience as a developer, architect and mentor, I have been teaching and writing Java since it was introduced publicly. I am an expert in distributed Java EE technologies, teaching classes in a wide range of topics, including Spring, JPA, Java, Advanced Java, Android, OO, UML, Web Development, REST, JavaBeans, and Performance Tools. I also create custom courses for corporations, targeted to their specific needs.
My experience has been in IT shops ranging in size from a few million to many billions of dollars in revenue which has provided me the unique opportunity to see how specialization and staffing can be both beneficial and wasteful. I enjoy technology and staying involved at many levels. My outstanding people skills and tech-savvy are what make me unparalleled.

I was having issues with understanding Java programming, and I met with Scott and it finally makes sense. Scott was very nice, has great communication, patient, open, and straight to the point. I showed him my assignment based on how my professor wanted it done, he understood what I needed to do and helped me think through the process to ensure that I understood it. Not to mention a few tips and tricks to make working in Eclipse easier. I turned my assignment in to my professor the same evening and receive a 100% on the assignment along with a comment regarding how well it was done! I am actually excited about doing other assignments in the course and I will definitely be contacting Scott for additional sessions!!!
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.
Shortly after achieving undergrad degree I went to work for Caterpillar Tractor Company programming mainframes and mid-range IBM server. Later I went on to work for the Lawrence Paper Company where I mastered client-server design and began mentoring the team. It was at this point I started writing articles for a programming periodical and was recruited to work for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. I was installed into a new position where I was a corporate technology instructor. I taught design courses that helped programmers understand the new OO programming models and later resigned to start my own company. I now provide classroom and online training for Fortune 500 companies across the US.
My degree is in Computer Science and the demands placed on this student are extreme. From logic circuits to cluster and clouds, this topic is fascinating for those who like to solve big puzzles.
I have played professionally for many years and also recorded music in studio. I have many drum sets and experiment with recording in my own home
Having graduated summa cum laude in CS, I had many semesters of logic and reasoning. In fact, I'm starting to believe binary may have bent my brain!
I have designed and modeled web applications that scale to millions of transactions a second. You build it and they will come is the motto. I have massive understanding of the web, server and payloads being transferred between the two. Moreover, with mobile being all the rage, my new challenges involve using the web in non-traditional ways to connect phones and tablets to back end servers.
