I have a B.S. in Mathematics
from The University of Texas, Arlington, with a Minor in Engineering, and specialize in tutoring high school math
and Microsoft Office applications, e.g., Excel
, Word, PowerPoint
, Access, Outlook, and MS Project, 2003-2010 versions.
I worked as a programmer/systems analyst for almost eighteen years before moving into Project Management. My main expertise was programming
in RPG, COBOL
, and LANSA. I have been working with DOS
on PC systems since their inception.
Originally, I gained expertise with WordPerfect and Lotus 1-2-3. Then, I switched in the early 90's to Microsoft's Office applications, i.e., Word and Excel, as they became the industry standards. I can provide general PC tutoring, from how to power-on PCs to troubleshooting common PC problems (non-technical and/or technical students), and how to set up Virus protection along with "safe computing" practices (for Kids or Parents!).
I can teach any of the Microsoft Office applications from beginner through advanced users. My greatest expertise is with MS Excel, where I have used pivot tables and charts for several years in analyzing production data, and then copied the charts into MS PowerPoint to present to all levels of management, including C
-level executives. I have created many macros, and use VBA to customize macros and create new applications, also.

Just for the record, I have over twenty years of programming experience. I don’t consider myself to be an authority on programming concepts or theory, though. The idea of this blog, and any future blog posts, is really to convey some key “practical” programming,
database, and/or systems design concepts to those I am tutoring - or anyone else interested enough that happens to read this blog...
