Physics PhD/Math BS: Programming: C/C++/Java/python/JavaFX/Java Swing

Methodology

Learning programming languages requires primarily programming. Programming is a subset of problem solving. Programming requires knowledge of the programming language, logic, math (often), and creative problem solving. Concepts are explained clearly if there is a need. Otherwise, practice is the focus. Active learning is best in any subject. The student and I should actively work together to achieve the student's understanding of the language and methods of programming.

Background

I have tutored programming to elementary, middle school, high school, and college students and graduate students over the past 3 years (C,C++,Java,python,C#). I have taught, approximately, 1 elementary student, 2 middle school students, 1 high school student, and many college students. My students generally obtain significantly higher grades through my help.
Lately I have tutored data structures in C, C++, Java, and python. I have helped with C systems programming in a OS class for linux. I have also recently tutored javascript, php, html5, cs3, and SQL. My HS student has learned some Java Swing and JavaFX. Currently he is learning C# with asp.net and windows forms.
I have some experience also tutoring Java EE for an academic CS course.

Fires Battle Lab, 2421 NW Austin Road, Suite 214, Fort Sill, Oklahoma 73503 through Alatec Inc., 650C Pratt Ave NW, Huntsville, AL 35801.
• Using C++ in a RHEL 5.8 64-bit OS, programmed in the modeling and simulations group. Added new behavior to a UAV model with three degrees of freedom.
• Wrote (Graphical User Interface) GUI code using GTK+2.0 with C++ in a Linux OS for a new FIRESIM XXI GUI. Utilized g++, SCRUM, DIS, and HLA.
• Performed unit and system testing. Debugged code using ddd. Merged code forward. Created reports.

05/08-02/13 Software Engineer, Jr.
CGI/CGIFEDERAL, 1224 SW Rex Madeira Rd, Lawton, OK 73501.
• Maintained the Computer Meteorological Data-Profiler (CMDP). Helped to correct code written in Java Swing. Tested a new capability of the CMDP using AFATDS.
• Tested the Meteorological Measuring Set Profiler (MMSP) to determine its range as a function of latitude. Discovered inconsistencies in the measurements. Determined that there was a problem in the model code and solved it. This problem had been present and unsolved for years.
• Placed again into full-time software sustainment of the MMSP profiler.
• Managed the SDF for a new profiler software release, and assisted in the development of that new release. Primarily independently, upgraded the MMSP modeling computer to RHEL 6.0. Set up a Solaris 10 build machine for the new profiler.
• Designed, developed, and tested, primarily independently, the code necessary to allow the MMSP profiler to handle two types of GRIB data, and presented a code walk through. Found seven errors in the profiler code written by the OEM. C++, csh, sh, and Perl were utilized for a Solaris OS computer among a system of three networked computers.
• Helped to set up a Solaris 8 build machine for an older version of the profiler. Assisted with putting the software transition of the profiler (18,000 files) from the OEM to the FSED under CM control.
• Developed algorithms, programs, and shell scripts to analyze radar detection data and debugging output data for the LCMR/Q48. Deduced logical, statistical data analysis issues with mathematical proof in C++ radar code written by the OEM. Assisted with the algorithm to detect rockets with the LCMR.
• Wrote an 87-page document describing how to playback recordings using the process automation programs and shell scripts I independently developed for a Linux OS. By affecting synchronization of the interface computer and radar cylinder computer, more insight was obtained into the various software modules of the entire system. With these methods, a bug manifested by timing discrepancies between the two computers was detected in the LCMR system.
• Successfully completed the Modern Radar Systems and Phased Arrays Radar short courses from Georgia Institute of Technology.
• Was invited to create and program an algorithm to predict the current likelihood of obtaining the correct FY-end planned effort based on the current actual effort for larger contracted projects. My solution was selected over those offered by the section managers. The CGI vice-president came to Lawton to see a presentation of my work, but I was not allowed to attend. The algorithm provides simple, visual evidence of the likelihood of future success obtaining the correct FY-end planned effort every pay period. The original, complex mathematical and statistical algorithm is the primary indicator of the status of each project. This algorithm and several simple, supplemental algorithms provided by several section managers were approved by the government and have been utilized since 2009. Programmed the entire solution for WINXP Pro in C using MSVS C++ express and wrote a 60-page user’s manual for this program. A senior engineer, my former team leader, attempted to program this solution in Java and could not.
• Took the personal software process (PSP) fundamentals and advanced courses of the SEI, Carnegie Mellon University, over a 2-week period in August 2009.
• Wrote a 156-page, single-spaced description of one run through the entire weather prediction algorithm for the laptop profiler. Wrote a document describing the corrections I made to the laptop software.
• Researched the new WRF weather model as compared to the MM5 model. Developed a plan to upgrade the laptop profiler software with a more modern weather model. CGI obtained funding for this task in 2012 for the CMDP.
• Independently, tested and debugged the prototype laptop profiler in conjunction with the currently fielded profiler by comparing numerical output within various identical modules of the systems. These comparisons revealed many issues in both systems. Corrected (Unix/Linux/FORTRAN 77) code for most software modules of the laptop profiler before the project ended.
• Began maintenance of the MMSP. Studied Java several months.
• Computers (OS): x86 (WINXP Pro, Vista Enterprise, and Windows 7 Pro Enterprise); (Dell Dual Core laptop, RHEL 2.6); (VMware, VT Miltope); (RHL Fedora 5, Solaris 7); (RHEL 5.5, Solaris 8); (RHEL 6.0, Solaris 10).
• Programming and scripting languages: C, C++, FORTRAN 77 and 90, in Linux and Solaris; WINXP/MSVS/C++ express C; Linux/Solaris/sh, csh; Linux/bash; Solaris/Perl.
