"Good teaching is good teaching is good teaching" - Beauvais. "New technology does not change what students need to learn. A quality instructor needs preparation and solid teaching techniques, regardless of the subject and classroom modality."
Rob started working in web applications in 1995, began teaching at New Horizons in 1997 and became a Microsoft Certified Trainer in 1999. Rob has extensive experience teaching traditional classroom, blended classroom, and online classes. He helped pioneer the move to online training, and he serves as a mentor instructor, helping other instructors refine their delivery skills. Rob’s conversational delivery, demo-driven presentations and technical depth make him one of the top instructors, as he regularly collects awards both locally and internationally for his high-quality deliveries. His consulting and local development experience provide the real-world baseline for his classroom examples. Rob’s 20 years of classroom training experience give him a great feel for students and their needs. Even though Rob started programming as a young child, he has not lost the empathy required to give a quality class to all levels of learners. He strives to teach classes that he would like to attend, keeping an easygoing, straight-forward style that is both informative and just entertaining enough to keep students’ attention. Rob specializes in Microsoft.NET development. .NET was rolled out in 2002, and Rob was selected as a roadshow instructor to help introduce the framework to the developer community. Since then, he has delivered countless hours of introductory and high-end .NET training to individuals and corporate customers alike. As a native Detroiter, he has taught customized content to the likes of Ford Motor Company, General Motors and Chrysler Corporation, but also delivered training for Chicago Tribune, Quicken Loans, several universities and NASA.
