About Keith

I am an experienced professional with over 20 years of software development experience. I can offer my expertise to potential students in the areas of Java, Javascript, HTML, J2EE, CSS, relational databases (MySQL, DB2, etc) and other web technologies. In my current role, I have acted as a mentor to summer interns and new hires. I am extremely patient and willing to work with someone until they have full understanding of a concept. One of my long term projects was to create an online reading tutor for children and adult first time readers. The interactive web site uses voice recognition to guide first time readers and help them gain literacy skills. A big part of this project was working with 1st and 2nd grade students in many schools around the New York City area. We collected reading samples and watched how they interacted with computers to understand how we could make our software more usable.

On a personal level, I am married with three wonderful daughters. For the last 10 years, I have been a basketball and softball coach for my daughters' teams. This experience has taught me a great deal about patience and teaching. It has also inspired me to work as a tutor, so that I can pass along my knowledge to students willing to learn about java-based web development.
