Bio

I am here on Wyzant to tutor various topics such as C# and VB programming languages and Assembly language for 8086/8088 Intel processor but also RISC-V, LC3 and MIPS. I can help in Digital systems and boolean logic as well. I am not a Web programmer but familiar with some of those technologies as well as Database programming via C# including some SQL. However, let me also say what my passion at this point in my life is. I am an MA graduate of a school in Jerusalem called Polis Institute in...

I am here on Wyzant to tutor various topics such as C# and VB programming languages and Assembly language for 8086/8088 Intel processor but also RISC-V, LC3 and MIPS. I can help in Digital systems and boolean logic as well. I am not a Web programmer but familiar with some of those technologies as well as Database programming via C# including some SQL. However, let me also say what my passion at this point in my life is. I am an MA graduate of a school in Jerusalem called Polis Institute in 2021 (accredited by UIC Barcelona, Spain) 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 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#

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.

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

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.

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.

Biblical Hebrew on Steroids

Brett's enthusiasm is a contagious catalyst. From day one he immerses you in the language. Using the techniques he learned at Polis Institute in Jerusalem as you are taught to greet מה שלומך = ma shalomKha meaning how is your peace with a reply: שלומי טוב = my shalom (peace) is good, and say goodbye שלום shalom! His method of teaching is more organic and less of a stoic structure of axioms and paradigms. If you like (as I do) going off road and exploring the Bible, Hebrew traditions and culture he is more than just informed, he is engaging. Brett truly loves teaching Hebrew but even more important he want to make sure you enjoy the lessons in a stress free and productive state. I personally love the feeling of achievement and confidence at the end of each session. I can not recommend him highly enough to anyone who has a desire to study Biblical Hebrew.

Barry, 13 lessons with Brett

Patient and thorough

Brett takes the time to walk through concepts and debugging with you. I was doing very well in my class until we hit pushing procedures onto the stack. I hit a wall in my understanding until tutoring here. He makes sure you take away a good understanding of the material. Completely recommend!

Lindsey, 6 lessons with Brett

knowledgable and patient tutor

Brett taught Assembly RISC V 1.5 and different terminology of loops and arguments and how the program works very patiently and kindly. He is very knowledgeable.

x86 Assembly Language

I've noticed the vast majority of tutors on Wyzant don't tutor x86 Assembly Language or are overly priced. Brett's price is very reasonable and he's an excellent, patient tutor for x86 Assembly who will go out of his way to help you succeed.

Harris, 10 lessons with Brett

Great tutor! (RISC-V Assembly)

Professor Brett is such a great tutor! He asked, in advance what the topics were, and prepared the lesson beforehand. He made it really easy to understand concepts that had previously been difficult for me to grasp. He is also very patient and took the time to make sure I knew what I was doing. I will definitely be following up with more lessons from him!

Knowledgeable and patient MIPS Assembly tutor

I met with Brett to learn and understand MIPS Assembly for a homework assignment. After watching the videos provided by the professor numerous times, I was stumped. I reached out to Brett and he was very accommodating with my schedule as well as helping me with my assignment. I highly recommend Brett for your MIPS Assembly tutoring needs.

MIPS Assembly Language

Professor Brett is a great guy. He is full of knowledge. I have been taking tutoring sessions from him for my MIPS class. He helped me so much. I never thought of getting such a great help in my subject. Professor is very patient and is always there to work with you. I had a very nice experience learning in his sessions. I would highly recommend this Professor Brett for tutoring classes.

JASMEET SINGH, 8 lessons with Brett

Great tutor!!

Brett helped me with debugging my mips code. He went through the problem and helped me realize what i missed. He also helped me to understand the stack and the importance of storing the return register of a function.
