About Brett


Bio

I am here on Wyzant to tutor various topics, but let me also say what my passion at this point in my life is. I am a recent MA graduate of a school in Jerusalem (Polis) that teaches the conversational method to learn ancient Greek (Koine & Attic). I would love to help you meet your goals to learn the amazing language. Come, let us speak ancient Greek together while we read or discuss what we see in illustrations, and other methods Classical Greek. If you would like to try, I look forward to...

I would love to help you meet your goals to learn the amazing language. Come, let us speak ancient Greek together while we read or discuss what we see in illustrations, and other methods Classical Greek. If you would like to try, I look forward to hearing from you.

I love ancient Greek. I recently walked away from a 20 year career in Electrical Engineering and Computer Programming to go to Jerusalem to continue my studies in ancient Greek. This is what I want to do. I hope to meet enthusiastic eager students like me to teach! I began studying Koine Greek early in 2016.

I learned an Erasmian pronunciation for this ancient classical Greek language. If you want to speak this ancient language, let me help you. Please reach out to me, and let's walk this journey together.

In addition, due to my two Masters' degrees, Bachelor's and experience, I have various other topics that I am tutoring as well. I hope to be able to help others.

C#,

C#

I received my BS in Electrical Engineering Technology from the University of Central Florida in 1996 and began work after doing an MBA in February 1999. In school I had classes for Fortran, C language, and Assembly for 808x processor. In my Engineering career, I learned and worked for many years with Visual Basic .NET as well as C#.NET. For 2.5 years I worked for a contract manufacturer writing C# for my Automated Test Development systems (Functional Test). From 2014 until 2019, I wrote in C# language for Guardian Interlock Systems.

Computer Programming

Graduated University of Central Florida with a BS in Electrical Engineering Technology degree. First job was working on the Space Shuttle at Kennedy Space Center. Worked on various electronic design and test projects with programming in C, assembly (a bit), C#.NET, and VB.NET until 2nd QTR 2019.
CSS,

CSS

Worked for 7 companies in manufacturing on various electronic design and test projects with programming in C, assembly (a bit), C#.NET, and VB.NET until 2nd QTR 2019. I have spent time with various web technologies including HTML, CSS, Javascript and Bootstrap. My last position began mostly on the hardware (electronics side) but ended up in the software department; was a part of that team for 5 years until 2019. There our small team composed of those more proficient in Web technologies from HTML, CSS, Javascript, and JQuery built on an ASP.NET Forms applications. I helped out with this aspect from time to time. In addition, after an acquisition by another company, our boss indicated that MVC model (model-view-controller) applications were being used by them, so we all began learning that and creating websites based on that with ASP.NET and C#.
DOS,

DOS

From 1988 to 1994 I worked for ECI Telecom after exiting the USAF wherein I was a telephone technician. While at ECI, I found myself using the command line of the old 8088/8086 PC whose operating system was MS Dos, to do various functions, e.g. file copying, moving files, formatting disks, etc. As Windows came out later in the 1990s, occasionally throughout my career (after becoming an Electrical Engineer/Programmer) that I needed to use the command line of DOS to do various things that Windows would not allow access to, or I just found it easier to do it that way.
HTML,

I have not worked as a tutor or teacher long, but had a 20 year career in Electrical design and computer programming.  I have been told many times after explaining things that I should be a teacher. well, here I am.

Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

Having worked as an Electrical Engineer and software programmer for 20 years in an office environment that always used Microsoft Office products, I think I can help the folks that need it. I have done fairly advanced things in MS Word and Excel, but not used MS Access much at all, but have used Powerpoint quite a lot. In addition and moreover, understanding a perusing the various MS operating systems (Windows 95, 98 up through MS Windows 7, I am very familiar. For last few years, I have been using MS Windows 10 as well, and am pretty familiar with it.
Visual Basic

Visual Basic

Before I learned C#.NET, I started learning Visual Basic, that eventually led to learning VB.NET. From 2014 to 1019, I primarily did my coding at Guardian Interlock in C#.NET but occasionally some code was in VB.NET, and at times, needed to be converted to C#.NET. This was all for GUI applications and DLLs, but not for Web at all.

I just completed my MA in Ancient Philology in Jerusalem at Polis Institute. The accredited institution that provides the MA through Polis is International University of Catalonia (Barcelona). I began studying Ancient Classical Greek in early 2016 and have attended numerous conversational Ancient Greek immersion courses with Polis before going to Jerusalem to complete the 2 year MA program.
Hebrew,

Hebrew

I just returned from Jerusalem for 2 years where I studied both Biblical and Modern Hebrew. I continue to study both and meet with native speakers online. Since I am a non-native speaker, albeit having learned from native speakers, I can only say I am at the intermediate level, but can hold conversations and read moderately difficult writings in Hebrew. Likewise for Biblical Hebrew i.e. the Tanakh (Old Testament bible), I can read easy to moderately difficult passages. I began taking Modern Hebrew primarily to supplement my Biblical Hebrew. In Israel I took classes up to level Bet (Aleph, Aleph+ then Bet). Because of my Biblical Hebrew, I skipped the first level, i.e. Aleph.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

My MA in Ancient Philology from Polis Institute in Jerusalem (two years there) had 4 semesters of New Testament (NT) Greek and Old Testament (OT) Hebrew. I feel my greatest source of expertise is having studied extensively for years the earliest Christian writings we have outside of the Bible, called the Ante Nicene Fathers. In particular, the first 3 or 4 volumes that are dated from late first century CE to the beginning of the third century. In addition, I have studied for well over a decade the NT and OT extensively, the Mosaic Law, the Prophets and the Psalms, in addition to Christology (OT passages about the Messiah (Christ in Greek). I personally feel that modern Seminaries have departed from the Historic Faith in some ways. One thing I think is important for students is to learn the "big picture chronology" of the OT, i.e. can someone walk me through from Genesis to the end of the OT narratives explaining the events from Adam to the end with Ezra and Nehemiah? This is an important basis to understand the history that segways into the NT story of the Messiah.

Knowledgeable and GreatTutor

Brett taught me elements of Visual studio I had no idea existed and helped me fix my code! I am super grateful to have found him and learned lots of knowledge towards my future career.

Christina, 1 lesson with Brett

Very helpful!

Brett was available to help me with the first part of an HYML priject that I was having trouble with. He took the time to explain certain functions. He was very helpful and let me know if I needed him anytime throughout me working on my project, he would be there to help. He has a calming energy about him that is important. I would definitely call on his assistance in the future.

Great Teacher

Really went into depth on topics so that I understood the coding material. Helped me finish my assignment to the point where I was sure I would get a good grade. Overall, a great tutor.
