Profile

As a nationally recognized Red Hat Academy instructor I have been teaching the Linux operating system since 2008. Two of my courses have received Mesa Community College's Gold Star certification for instructional excellence. The CIS126RH, CIS238RH, CIS240RH and CIS271RH courses I teach use the official Red Hat Academy curriculum which will help prepare you to pass the Red Hat RHCSA and RHCE exams. As a Red Hat Academy MCC students receive a discount on the Red Hat certification exams. In addition to teaching the Red Hat curriculum I am a Quality Matters Peer Reviewer and a certified Amazon Web Services instructor. The AWS courses I teach use the official AWS curriculum and aligned with AWS certifications. Students enrolled in my AWS courses are eligible to receive a discount voucher on the AWS certification exams. I hold blockchain certificates of completions from MIT's Sloan School of Management and the University of Buffalo. Most of my classes can be attended online without the need to come to the campus.
