I was first exposed to computers in the Army many years ago and have been learning (and teaching others) about them ever since.

"Hi, I’m Don. I have a passion for teaching people just about anything about computers. I was first exposed to computers in the Army many years ago and have been learning (and teaching others) about them ever since. I earned an Associates of Science degree in Computer Sciences (General Studies) with Central Texas College in 1992 and then went on to earn a Bachelors of Science (Computer Information Systems) with Columbia College in 2003. Recently, I completed a Certificate of Completion (CIS – Desktop) with Central Oregon Community College in June of 2011. As you can see, I really love to learn (and teach about) computers.

My teaching skills were first developed in the military with the principal of “go at the pace of the slowest learner and ensure they KNOW the materials before going on to the next step.” I have used this approach continually and have kept this concept foremost in all of my teaching. This was proven with my assignment as Drivers Training Instructor in Germany and I attained a 98.2% first time passing rate of my students. As you might guess, I don’t move on to the next part of the teaching until both I and the student are confident in their knowledge of the subject.

Besides teaching the basics of computers to many soldiers, I have taught many other subjects such as military training, personal financial management, English, math, and so much more. With the English classes, I had the grade point average of my students raised from an average of 8.4 to 12.1 when they tested for their G.E.D. Additionally, I have taught a variety of topics for Sabbath classes in different churches, which I have attend over the years. Yes, teaching is a passion to me, and I love to see people learn and enrich their lives from it." less...
