Greetings, I have tutored students from Bay Point to Shenzhen, China in subjects ranging from music history to pro photography and Adobe Photoshop, computer maintenance and repair, to recording arts and drama. I take a hands-on approach in demonstrating the subject, then handing the reins to the student and let them take the lead with guidance and encouragement. I also believe in checks and balances, through test and evaluation to ensure they are grasping the lessons fully.
I served as a Field Training Officer with the CA State Police, where I taught report writing to police officers. I lived in mainland China for two years teaching english to business professionals. I also taught music, English and drama to grade and middle school students, as well as photography to high school students . . . again, in China. I received two teaching awards for excellence while teaching there in 2004 and 2005.
I am told that I am patient, and effective in creating an aura of understanding for the topics at hand. Every one of my students have either excelled in academia or within their careers. In fact, every police officer I ever trained went on to achieve the rank of Sergeant or Lieutenant within the CA State Police or Highway Patrol, from which I am retired.
I have 2.5 years accredited college and an additional 5 years technical training (ALL) of which is verifiable. I am A+ Certified through CompTIA for Computer Upgrade & Repair and am familiar with operating systems from Windows 3.1 through Windows 7 Ultimate. I can teach you to use your computer in a secure manner. I continue my own education even now, by attending classes three nights a week to obtain my additional certification in Networking and Internet Security.
