description of :
I was born in Bogota, Colombia of an American Father and Barbadian Mother. I grew up in Barbados and moved to the United States when I was twenty years old. I joined the US Air Force and retired in 2003 after serving for 20+ years in the US Air Force/Air Guard. In the 1990's I cofounded and managed a small typesetting and graphics company while serving in the Air National Guard as a Satellite Communications Technician and, later, as a First Sergeant. I have a Bachelor degree in Computer Science and have taken college level courses in Accounting. I also trained with H&R Block for Individual Tax Return preparation and provided that service for several years to private clients. In the late 1990's, I gained numerous Information Technology certifications and subsequently worked as an IT engineer. With my military background and training, it was not long before I found myself on the management side of IT, serving a well-known South Carolina law firm as their IT Director for several years and then a large DOE contractor in Tennessee in charge of the IT Client Services group. In December 2009, I resigned my position in Tennessee to take time off to travel in my motor home, write, paint and teach.
 
Teacher's qualifications:
I have 25+ years of experience in helping to develop skills and build knowledge in people from all walks of life. I have performed as a facilitator, instructor, course writer, and mentor in subjects ranging from electronics systems, computer technology, management, communications, leadership, and supervision. I also tutor students in Elementary Mathematics, Natural Science, and English Essay writing. Finally, I am experienced in personal budget counseling and am a big believer that, with some help and training, almost any person can get control of his finances and improve his situation.
 
's preferred teaching style:
My teaching style is to balance course content with specific needs and interests of the student. I use a course outline to keep things on track and provide the student with material he can refer to later. During our online sessions, I present information and also encourage student discussion and interaction. In the case of my course “Get Control of Your Household Budget,” I give out-of-class assignments that are building blocks: by course completion, the student has developed his household budget for better control and management of his finances.
