Senior Software Architect and Teacher

I have been developing software for over 22 years and teaching for over 10 years. I've been told that my teaching style is very calm and pleasant and many of students love the step by step approach that I normally use. People learn differently. I am a visual learner and that's how I like to teach with lots of examples and explanation.
