I am a retired Naval officer, married with two teenage children. I've coached soccer, served on the School Site Council and volunteered in the classroom at the schools my children attend. I'm very friendly, easygoing, and patient at teaching. I've managed Information Technology for years. I excel at tutoring in computers, desktop applications, home networking, computer security, and tablet or smartphone devices. I can tutor to assist in troubleshooting computer and networking problems as well. I'm the go to guy my family and friends seek out for information.

Additionally, having had a child who struggled with math, I know how frustrating it can be. I've been successful in helping turn my own child's math grades around. Look forward to meeting and working with you. Of course, I'm happy to tutor adults as well.
