The University of Texas at Dallas (Master's)
Some university courses I have taught are Discrete Math I and II, Compiler Design, and Automata. Some industrial courses I have written and presented nationwide are Understanding Induction Heating, Understanding DC Drives, Understanding AC Drives, and Serial Data Communications. After twenty years doing technical work in industry I returned to school for graduate work in Computer Science. Once completed I worked in several areas, mostly doing computer-product development.
I enjoy helping people gain new skills and improve their skill performance. Continuing interests are in computers, amateur radio, nutrition and herbs, plus neuro-linguistic programming.
I understand not only the algebra basis of calculations through calculus, but also the practical applications and alternate methods of presenting the ideas beyond the usual textbook presentations.
Physics is a natural subject for me, especially Newtonian physics. My SAT achievement score in Physics was 800, in math level II 781.
My MSCS degree work was taken in the early 1990s up through all required classes for the PhD program. Both theoretical and applied computer science has been my personal study since 1979.
Using the language the student is my method of teaching any topic. I prefer to show the student how the topic works then work to aid them in seeing their skills increase. Practical practice is essential for success. Competent explanations in appropriate language are required to gain useful practice.

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.
After practicing Computer Science in industry and product development for 8 years I returned to university for an MS in Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas. BSCS in 1988 summa cum laude, MSCS in 1990, plus additional graduate work. Taught Automata, Discrete Math I and II, Compiler Design during graduate work and also did O/S support for RS6000 at IBM Westlake and compiler support at Convex during the same time. Work after grad school includes various development and maintenance projects in industry. Applications include aviation, medical, and industrial applications at development companies.
During my graduate work in Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas, I taught undergraduate Discrete Math multiple semesters from 1988-1990. I also tutored mathematics courses at Abilene Christian 1970-71, In the early 80s, wrote and taught four electronics and communications seminars in industry. GM, USAF, USN, and nuclear power generation companies were primary clients.Two courses were written on request from GM. Today I assist in training Neuro-Linguistic classes occasionally in Plano.
During my graduate work at The University of Texas at Dallas, 1988-1993, I taught classes in Discrete Math I and II, and Digital Design. All included sections on formal, mathematical logic for computer science. My teaching background includes writing and teaching seminars for industry, military, and nuclear power generation throughout the US before grad school.
