Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience working with young children ages 5 and up. I utilize an interactive, hands-on approach to engage younger students. I often develop puzzles or games that demonstrate the material and provide a fun basis for a more detailed conversation about the material.
I am also familiar with the Common Core curriculum. I believe that Common Core's focus on conceptual learning provides a stronger basis for more advanced learning. This is especially true in Mathematics.

Discrete Math

I have education in discrete mathematics and formal logic. I also have extensive experience implementing discrete mathematical concepts in a professional setting. I have utilized discrete mathematics in designing state machines, game theory, programming and cryptography.

Computer Programming

I have over 20 years of experience developing Object-Oriented software. I have extensive experience with Java and C++. I have designed large scale distributed systems for the DOD and private industry that adhere to The Object Group's Architectural Framework (TOGAF). I have tutored and mentored people in the use of technology throughout my career.

Computer Science

Throughout my career I have worked with virtually every aspect of Computer Science: analysis, design, development, documentation, debugging, security, maintenance and architecture. I have designed and implemented systems on mainframes, UNIX boxes, PCs and network devices. I have mentored and tutored students on these topics throughout my career.
