"I have over 7 years of experience being an instructor using asynchronous and live teaching formats with both traditional and non-traditional learners. I have taught over 100 sections of courses ranging from beginning programming and pre-calculus to advanced programming and Advanced Microsoft Office applications (Excel, Access).

As far as my teaching philosophy, I believe I can help students connect more by relating classroom concepts to real life situations that happen in the industry. I feel this gives students a sense of purpose when completing their classwork, and answers the question "Why are we learning this?". The joy for me being an instructor is making the connection with the student and seeing them improve over time. I enjoy moments when the student "gets it".

I was a tutor and study group facilitator in College for Pre-Calculus and Calculus I courses. I am very effective because I am able to see the class from the student's perspective. I was previously a poor math student and got great from a great instructor that helped me. Now I want to give back and do the same. Students that have a fear or dis-interest in math are very welcome. I can help with those concerns.

I have 20 years of experiences in software design in various industries. I also have previous experience doing help desk support dealing with several types of customers and clients. I have experience in all versions of Microsoft Office products up to the advanced level. I have extensive experience ranging from beginner programming concepts up through work on mission critical software applications in languages such as Java, C++, C#, and Visual Basic/.NET. I have experience in database design and web scripting languages such as JavaScript, Perl, and PHP.

I provide a comfortable environment for you to learn and improve. I encourage a relaxed and comfortable environment where you are free to ask questions. Online tutoring is best for me, however, I can also meet in person. For online, I have a high-speed connection and can suppo" less...
