Programming concepts will be put into practice by using Java for programming projects. These basic programming concepts and constructs will be covered: variables, data types, strings, arithmetic and logical operators, branching statements, loops, and debugging. Additionally, these object-oriented programming concepts will be covered: classes, instance variables, methods, and constructors.

Educational Philosophy: My teaching philosophy is to work hard for the student in providing materials that are current and technologically advanced. My goals is to provide the student an education that is rich in knowledge and skills, but presented with a common-sense approach that the student can quickly grasp and apply to “real-world” problems. My teaching style is to coach the student in not only solving the problems presented but in developing a set of skills that the student will take with them and apply in other areas of their life as well.
