I care about people doing well. I want to be able to help you get better, to have an edge. Better grades are fantastic, but I want YOU to be proud of what you are accomplishing. A lot of kids I have taught were worried that their parents would be disappointed with their projects. Time and time again what I told them proved to be correct. As long as you liked what you learned, that you have a plan to keep learning, and that you will help others too, No one should ever be disappointed with what you achieve.
Hi! My name is Adrian and not to sound cheesy but I love teaching people about computer science. Seriously, it is up there in my top 3 favorite things to do right next to cross stitching and playing games. I worked as a Lead Instructor with iD Tech Camps and it was an absolute blast. I taught over 100 kids C++, Python, and general computer science skills. I love Computer Science and teaching it to others not only spreads that love but helps me learn too! I am excellent at linking students passions to computer science and breaking down concepts. I hope to get the chance to help you learn more about a subject I love. And if computer science is not your cup of tea, I hope to get the chance to talk with you about your passions and help you work towards them, whatever they might be. Over two summers I taught over 100 High School students about Computer Science, C++, and Python. I have worked with kids for a majority of my life, both in the US and in other Countries

South Dakota School of Mines & Technology.
2016 - 2020
Majored in Computer Science with a Minor in Business Administration.
I recently graduated from the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology with a Major in Computer Science and a Minor in Business Administration. I have worked as a Corps Member with AmeriCorps NCCC, assisting non-profit organizations along the west coast. I was an Instructor and then Lead Instructor with iD Tech, a summer camp dedicated to giving children a meaningful STEM experience. I have experience working with teams on projects ranging from farming to data input. Both AmeriCorps NCCC and iD Tech have given me many amazing experiences working with many different kinds of teams and managers. I am currently looking to be a part of a team that can help my excel in my field and let me earn industry experience in Software Engineering and Development.

Senior Design Projects
Using the Unity Game Engine, my team created an MVP for a VR application that would be used by the SDSM&T Geology Department. The application would allow students to view topographic maps in a virtual and interactive environment. Maps would contain GIS information that could be compiled into layers for the user to enable and disable. During my team on the team, I helped research and choose the framework (Unity) that the project would be developed on and implemented general motion sensitive controls including: Moving the player around the virtual environment, moving and scaling maps with in the room, implementing intuitive menu options to allow user to make selection in the application.
Using .NET, C#, SQL, and Azure, my team created a web application to allow pilots to schedule flights in and out of airbases. Currently, scheduling is maintained over the phone and on paper. OpenAir provided an easy to use system for pilots to view, schedule, and change flights at different air routes. OpenAir was capable of ensuring no conflicts between flights entering or leaving routes within 15 minutes of each other (standard procedure). From my graduating class, I was selected and asked to transfer to OpenAir to help develop the project and communicate between the development team and potential clients. During my team with OpenAir, I helped develop the relational database and its repository pattern. I also assisted in creating the tests for the repository pattern with NUnit.
