American History

I am a life-long student of history, and have read and studied it extensively all my life. In addition to the the general outline of American History, I am especially interested in Colonial History, the Revolution, the Founding Fathers, Westward expansion, Indian conflicts, the Civil War, the American West, and almost any topic from the 20th Century. My favorite subject is Military History.

Classics

I received a Master's Degree in Latin, Greek, and Philosophy from the U of Montana, in the course of which I studied Greek and Latin Literature extensively. I have tutored Middle and High school students in both languages and their literature since 2008. My background is especially in Classical poetry, history, and drama.

Composition (Music)

My Bachelor's degree was in Music Composition, for which I composed, orchestrated, and conducted my original work. I have been a composer and arranger for choral works since then, including a polyphonic Mass for SAB choir. My work as a choir director allows me to create new composition as needed for the choir.

Computer Programming

I have been a business programmer in various languages since 1977: Basic, Cobol, RPG, SQL, VBA, and Visual Basic. I have taught computer programming at the college level and trained people in business as programmers. I currently work as an independent consultant programming projects for various clients.

European History

History is one of the joys of my life, and I love introducing students to the amazing events of the past which have shaped our world. In addition to the the general outline of European History, I am especially interested in Ancient History, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the age of Exploration, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, and almost any topic from the 20th Century. My favorite subject is Military History.

General Computer

I have been a computer programmer in various languages since 1977: Basic, Cobol, RPG, SQL, VBA, and Visual Basic. I have taught basic computer science and programming at the college level and trained people in business as super users and programmers. I currently work as an independent consultant programming projects for various clients.

Greek

I have a Master's degree in Latin, Greek, and Ancient Philosophy from the U. of Montana. I have tutored Middle and High School students in Classical and Biblical Greek since 2008. My interests are the New Testament, the Greek epic poets, and the Athenian Tragedians.

Latin

I have a Master's Degree in Latin, Greek, and Ancient Philosophy from the University of Montana. Since 2009, I have been tutoring students (both beginning and intermediate) who are learning Latin. I try and incorporate as much verbal drills as possible, while still impressing on the student the linguistic, historic, and cultural values of Latin as well.

Microsoft Access

I have worked as an Access programmer as my primary job since 2008, designing, programming and maintaining databases for customers. These database are either stand alone or linked to mainframe computers for data sharing or download purposes. I also use Visual Basic for Access to program these projects.

Microsoft Excel

I have worked with Excel as a primary part of my job since 2008; designing, debugging, and maintaining worksheets for customers. These worksheets are either stand alone or linked to external data. I have extensive experience in using Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts for data analysis, and I also use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to program in Excel for these projects.

Music History

I received my Bachelor's degree in Music from St. Procopius College in 1977, and have taught classical music history since 2008. My emphasis is especially on choral music of the Medieval and Renaissance periods, although I am also well versed in the music history of the Common Practice Period. Performing choral works of modern composers also keeps me current on the trends in music history over the past 50 years.

Sight Singing

Since I received my Music degree in 1977, I have directed choirs, which requires a degree of sight singing. My current choir is a Gregorian Chant Schola which sings a weekly High Mass with Chant and Polyphony strictly a capella. This requires singing a large amount of repertoire at sight, or with very little practice. I teach the Schola sight singing in order for them to learn the music, and over the past 5 years they have become quite proficient in it.

World History

The study of History, especially World History, seems to me to be one of the basic requirements of an educated person. Where did we come from, and why? In addition to the the general outline of World History, I am especially interested in Prehistory, the Ancient World, how Languages influence History (and vice versa), the Renaissance, the Age of Exploration and the contacts and conflicts between peoples as Europeans explored the world, and almost any topic from the 20th Century. My favorite subject is Military History.
