This is a one-on-one (1:1) private class to help students learn Arduino coding at their own pace and level. I am eager to introduce the Arduino microcontroller to beginners who have no coding experience and I am equally excited to help more experienced Arduino users who wish to learn how to do more advanced coding using various devices. I can teach beginner students how to use a wide variety of sensors such as LEDs, buzzers, thermistors, photoresistors, ultrasonic sensors, RFID readers and...
Students will increase their ability to code an Arduino using a variety of sensors and actuators - based on their desired learning outcome.
I have been a private school middle and high school science teacher for over 30 years. During that time, I taught classes in chemistry, engineering, earth science, life science, chemistry, forensic science, biology, and health. I enjoy teaching through hands-on experimentation and I believe that students learn best when they are activity engaged in the learning process. I am an amateur photographer and love to photograph my grandchildren, my dog, and wildlife. I enjoy creating scrapbooks from my photos. I also enjoy tinkering with my Arduino and 3D printer to create inventions of my own.
Students need to either have an account with www.autocad.com to use the free TinkerCad circuit simulator or download the free Arduino IDE (version 1.8.13) from www.arduino.cc. You can buy the components separately, but it would be more expensive than buying a kit that has all the parts you need and more.

55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Students can either use an actual Arduino for this class or use an online simulation, called Tinkercad. If they use the read Arduino, they will need to download the Arduino IDE from www.arduino.cc or use the online version at create.arduino.cc. If they choose to use Tinkercad, they will need to create an account at autodesk.com and log into www.tinkercad.com.
