My teaching method focuses on an interactive approach in which concepts are taught in steps with mnemonics and strategies for success, feedback is gathered from the student, and examples are solved by the student to measure understanding and ability. I plan my lessons using the goals and/or class expectations of my students, and teach in a fluid manner expanding on concepts which appear difficult, and reducing focus on concepts that the student masters quickly. That being said, repetition is key, supplementary practice will be provided covering all concepts, so that none become left out.

Application Developer, Sub Systems, Inc. (March 2020 - Present)
Working for a company designing and building software for use by other companies internally or as modular components in larger software.
I made inaccessible, buried, and hard-coded features of software products accessible and easy to use for users without a technical background.
I use C, C#, .NET and the win32 library to design and create user interfaces which allow the common user to quickly and easily access features which would before have necessitated modification of the source code.
The demo versions of the component software are more accessible and demonstrative of their capabilities, which has generated an increase in customer interest.
