Tenured College Professor
I am a tenured professor in California. I have taught at both the college and university level. I have also taught in multiple disciplines including business, information systems, computer science, and online education. In 1997, I was one of the first professors at the university to teach online. I did post-graduate work in online education at UC San Diego. I co-founded and taught in the “Online Teacher’s Training Program” which trained professors how to teach online. In 2008, I was selected as one of the best instructors in the entire California Community College system. Currently, when measured by the number of students served, I am the world’s leading trainer in Google’s new programming language which is one of the fastest growing, highest paying programming languages in America. In addition, I have started three businesses (two of them profitable, so far). My background in business, information systems, computer science, online education, and real-world entrepreneurship has prepared me to teach all of these courses. I look forward to helping you learn great skills to improve your life. Better skills, better life.
