About Jimmie

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.

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.

C

I have approximately 20 years experience writing 'C' for embedded applications (mostly in the Avionics field) and have passed company qualification tests on the language.

Computer Science

I have a BSEE from the University of Missouri (Missouri S&T) in 1967. I have worked in computers ever since, mostly in embedded real time software.

DOS

Very few folks use DOS. When it was a popular operating system, I used it quite a lot. Now, I occasionally use virtual DOS in command windows.

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

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.

Public Speaking

I taught for 3 years in the Air Force.

I have participated for over 40 years in a speaking class at my church.
