My name is Paul, and I am a tutor who specializes in computers and technology. I have spent the vast majority of my career working in high-tech and of that time I have spent nearly 14 years involved in Training and Education for technology companies developing courseware and teaching enterprise software. I have reached a transition in my career where I am more interested in working with individuals rather than for a corporation.
During my time as a technology professional I have helped many people learn the intricacies of complicated software packages. I have taught classes on VMware, Linux, Windows, Mac OS and many other software environments. I have also spent quite a bit of my personal time working with friends and family to help them resolve various technological issues, decide which solution is best for their personal needs, and tackle new technical project with confidence.
As a tutor I offer a very patient and personalized approach to learning. I will work with you to develop a learning path that best suits your needs and offers you challenging, yet approachable goals. Whether you are looking for a teacher to help you get started with the fundamentals of today's ever-changing digital world, or an up-and-coming technologist with aspirations to change the world with exciting new applications, I can help you on your road to success with computers and technology.
As a technology professional with over 20 years of experience, I have worked with a number of different software and hardware architectures. My experience at VMware, for example, gave me a chance to further my knowledge of operating systems and my time at Riverbed helped me to gain a deeper understanding of networking. I have hands-on experience developing courseware for numerous enterprise software applications each of which was based upon different technological frameworks.
I have a broad experience with programming languages, including many modern ones such as Java and Ruby to some older languages such as Pascal or LISP. I have written programs in a number of programming languages including C++, Ruby on Rails, Perl, and Pascal. I understand the principles of object-oriented programming as well as older techniques such as structured programming and abstract data types.
I completed my bachelor's degree with a major in Computer Science and since then I have been working in the technology industry for over 20 year. I have a solid understanding of the foundational knowledge of Computer Science, as well as hands-on experience working with many of today's latest technologies. I have written programs in many programming languages and understand the principles behind algorithm optimization.
