Overview

I have taught computer science (Lecturer) at UCLA, and I have coached varsity baseball at Malibu High School.

I am very strong in math and all sciences.  I have taught computer science at UCLA; tutored students in college chemistry; and created my own syllabus for teaching computer science and one for physics.

As a devotee of famed UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, I believe in, and have practiced, being a "teacher" while coaching, and conversely, being a "coach" while teaching.  The two practices are inescapably bonded. I teach from Coach Wooden's "Pyramid of Success".

He gave a fine lesson. He was helpful in setting up the class and everything with it.

Dr. Drobman was very understanding when I missed a lesson and provided me with a free make up lesson. Its clear he knows logic circuits in depth and he provided me with a hand drawn sheet of diagrams and information every week to bolster each lesson.
