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.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
