Carson-Newman College, Jefferson City, TN
AIU American Intercontinental University (Master's)
I have a Master's of Information Technology and 17+ years of Computer programming experience; A certificate in C/C++ programming. I have taught 4th & 5th graders to program in BASIC and tutored college students in COBOL, Fortran, and Pascal.
My methodology is primarily to guide the student to use logic and available resources to independently accomplish their required task. I expect students in this field to be engaged in learning and to do their own work. My goal is for the student to be able to accomplish their tasks with minimal assistance through a knowledge of available resources.
I am willing to work with students from late elementary through senior adult. I have a Master's of Information Technology and 17+ years of Computer programming experience; A certificate in C/C++ programming.
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.
COBOL was a required course for my Bachelor's Degree. During my tenure in college, I served as a tutor in the computer lab helping students learn COBOL, FORTRAN, RPG, Assembler, and basic windows applications including Office.
My combined FINAL average for the TWO-SEMESTER course was 105%.
I received my Bachelors degree in Business Data Processing which included coursework in COBOL FORTRAN and Assembly Language. I taught 5th graders to program Apple IIe computers in BASIC. My honors project was programmed in RSTS-E BASIC. I have a certificate in C/C++ programming from Durham Tech. I have 17 1/2 years experience as a programmer in the medical practice management industry (Duke WFU MCG) and a Master's of Information Technology.
During my first professional computer job, I wrote many .bat files to automate command-line processes we performed daily and create shortcut access to (early) windows applications.
I still remember many commands and can definitely find the syntax of those and any new ones that may have been added to cope with the newer operating systems installed on top of DOS and new file systems (NTFS).
I have computer-related Bachelor's and Masters degrees heavy on programming and 17 1/2 years experience as a computer programmer. Logic is a foundation of my career.
As a teen I loved working the logic-grid word puzzles "Sally, Bob, and Jane were riding a bus ... who sat in the window seat?"
Currently, I enjoy working Sudoku which is after all just a logic puzzle using the numbers 1-9.
Throughout several of my 17 years as a computer programmer I maintained, modified or created Microsoft Access databases for Duke Univ Cardio-Thoracic surgery, Wake Forest Univ Physicians Reproductive Endocrinology department, and JD Diggs Elementary school (Winston-Salem).
When I first started as a computer programmer, Windows 3.0 was out.
I have continued using a Windows-based computer both at home and work through Windows 7.
I have been referred to as a "Superuser"
I don't like the Windows 8 interface but could figure it out or locate resources to answer any specific questions.
I have not yet updated to Windows 10 but will be helping my son diagnose issues he's having later today.
