About Jimmie


Bio

Hello,
My name is Jim. I have worked as a software engineer for over 40 years. This has involved traveling to many places away from home, places such as Connecticut, Washington State, New Mexico, Arizona, Iowa, California, Florida, New York and even Europe. I worked for companies such as ASML, Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, Woodward Governor and Diehl Aerospace. I spent 3 years in the Air Force teaching mainframe maintenance. I am now almost 70 years old and would like to be home with my wife...

Hello,
My name is Jim. I have worked as a software engineer for over 40 years. This has involved traveling to many places away from home, places such as Connecticut, Washington State, New Mexico, Arizona, Iowa, California, Florida, New York and even Europe. I worked for companies such as ASML, Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, Woodward Governor and Diehl Aerospace. I spent 3 years in the Air Force teaching mainframe maintenance. I am now almost 70 years old and would like to be home with my wife and daughter and grandchildren. So it seems that teaching here locally would be the ticket.

I did well in college in math and physics and chemistry and have worked with computers since before the personal PC was invented. I think I would like to spend my time now helping others. I find that many concepts are not so difficult to understand if explanations and examples are given to provide a mental picture for the student.

Electrical Engineering,

Electrical Engineering

Even though my degree is dated (1967) I have a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. As I have not used the degree very much other than to examine schematics in order to write embedded software, I do not feel qualified to tutor advanced subject matter.
Logic,

Logic

I have taken logic courses at the college level. These focused on karnaugh mapping and other boolean logic simplification techniques. I have worked with computer logic for over 40 years. Thus involves combinations of circuitry to solve particular problems. This translates directly into "word" logic problems.

Knowledgable and goes out of his way to help.

Very knowledgeable with C programming language, patient and respectful. Goes out of his way to help if you do not understand something. Flexible with scheduling. Learning programming can be intimidating but you will feel comfortable to ask questions.
