About James

I have 4 years experience teaching high school math to include remedial math, algebra, and geometry. I also tutor in trigonometry, calculus, statistics, and the computer algebra system "Maple". I was certified to teach math and physics in California and also in Georgia. I spent 6 years teaching computer courses for the data processing and electronics engineering technology departments at Savannah Technical College, and I spent 2 years as an adjunct Computer Technology Instructor at Aiken Tech. I have 21 years work experience as a software engineer at Savannah River Site. I am skilled in VB, VB.net, MS Access, MS Excel, Unix shell programming, Oracle SQL and pl/sql. I also completed the Instructor Training Course at Ft. Gordon and subsequently taught at the U.S. Army Signal School. I also have work experience and training in electronics as well as some teaching experience in the field. Electronics training and coursework were with the Army, Georgia Tech, Savannah State College, and the University Of California at Santa Barbara. I also worked 2 years as an electronics technician with the Navy. I have 4 years experience teaching high school math to include remedial math, algebra, and geometry. I also tutor in Read more

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have a B.A. in Math from Occidental College; I have a B.S. in Math/Computer Science from Armstrong Atlantic. I have taught high school math in Georgia and California. I taught an algebra class at Savannah Technical College to Engineering Technology students. I taught pre-algebra courses on the high school level in Georgia and California. 40 years ago I ran a tutoring service in Tulare County California and tutored a student in algebra at that time.

Algebra 2

I have a B.A. in Math; I have a B.S. in Math/Computer Science. I have been certified to teach high school math and physics in 2 states. I taught a math class that included Algebra 2 concepts for Engineering Technology students.

COBOL

I took a COBOL class while obtaining my B.S. degree in Computer Science. I also taught COBOL at a Technical College for 4 years while serving as a data processing instructor.

Computer Programming

I have a B.S. in Computer Science. I taught Data Processing courses at a technical college for 6 years. I was a software engineer/computer programmer for 20 years.

General Computer

I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Armstrong Atlantic. I taught introductory courses in Computer concepts at Savannah Technical College for 6 years. I taught an intro to computers class at Aiken Tech for 2 years (as an adjunct/part-time instructor.)

Geometry

I have a B.A. in Math from Occidental College; I have a B.S. in Math/Computer Science from Armstrong Atlantic. I have taught high school math in Georgia and California. I taught Geometry for 1 year in Newbury Park, California. I taught math, electronics, and data processing at Savannah Technical College. I taught part-time at Aiken Technical College in the Computer Technology department. I have also taught at the signal school at Fort Gordon. 40 years ago I ran a tutoring service in Tulare County California.

Linear Algebra

I have a B.A. in Math, a B.S. in Math/Computer Science, and a teaching minor in Physics. One of the math courses taken was a course in the Calculus of Vector Functions. The first 1/3 of the course covered Linear Algebra. A few of the courses I have completed that require and use Linear Algebra concepts and methods are: Mathematics for the Physical Sciences, Advanced Engineering Math, Numerical Analysis, and Linear Networks & Systems. I have taught some basic Linear Algebra concepts in a Math class and in a Computer Science course for Electronics Engineering Technology majors.

Logic

I have a math degree (with a minor in physics) and a computer science degree. I have taken electronic courses with the Army, Georgia Tech, Savannah State, and University of California at Santa Barbara. I spent 20 years as a software engineer. All of these fields require a basic knowledge of logic. One of the courses I took was an electrical engineering course entitled Switching Theory which has a heavy dose of logic as part of the course. Additionally, I have taught Digital Electronics on the Technical College level

Microsoft Access

I have taken classes in Access and Visual Basic. I taught Access as part of an introduction to Computers class that covered MS Word, MS Excel, and MS Access. I programmed in Access and Visual Basic for 10 years.

Microsoft Excel

I hold a B.S. in Computer Science. I have used and taught electronic spreadsheet concepts since their inception. I received an award from the U.S. Army for a spreadsheet I created for their use. I have taught spreadsheet concepts as part of introductory computer courses at both Savannah Technical College and Aiken Technical College. I have created Excel spreadsheets and associated Visual Basic code for use by environmental scientists and engineers. I have used Visual Basic code in Microsoft Access in order to manipulate and control Microsoft Excel spreadsheets that were external to the Access app.

Oracle

I spent 20 years as a software engineer. 90% of my assignments involved oracle databases. I have experience as a SQL and a pl/sql programmer. I have created or maintained Oracle Forms applications. I have performed some DBA functions. I have taught an Oracle DBA class at a technical college.

Prealgebra

I have a B.A. in math from Occidental College. I have been certified to teach high school math in Georgia and California. I taught Pre-Algebra at Bradwell Institute in Georgia, and at Newbury Park High School in California.

Precalculus

I have a B.A. in math from Occidental College and a B.S. in Math/Computer Science from Armstrong Atlantic. I also have a teaching minor in (Calculus-based) Physics. I have taken several math classes that were part of Electrical Engineering Masters Degree programs at Georgia Tech and University of California at Santa Barbara. I have taught math courses both at the High School and Technical College levels. I have tutored previously as a community service. I have also run my own math tutoring service for a short period of time.

SQL

I have a Computer Science degree from Armstrong Atlantic. I was a software engineer for 20 years and provided programming support for several and varied databases used by Department of Energy contractors. I was involved with many database migrations, during the course of which SQL skills were critical. I have used SQL with Oracle databases and with SQL Server databases.

Statistics

I have taken statistics courses at Armstrong Atlantic, Georgia Tech, and with the U.S. Army. I have taken electrical engineering courses from Georgia Tech, Savannah State, and the U.S. Army. I have taken a probability course with Cal State Bakersfield. I have taught math on the high school level for 4 years, have taught in the Electronics Engineering Technology department and in the Data Processing department at Savannah Technical College for 6 years. I have taught part-time in the Computer Technology Department at Aiken Tech.

Trigonometry

I have a B.A. in math from Occidental College, a small academically elite liberal arts college also attended by Barrack Obama. I have been certified to teach high school math in Georgia and California.

Visual Basic

I spent 20 years as a software engineer. For the last 10 years, the applications I coded and maintained used MS Access as a frontend and Oracle databases as a backend. Coding for the applications was done in VB6. We began using VB .Net for new applications during the last 4 or 5 years. We began migrating Access/VB6 applications to VB .Net.
