I have been a city planner, social research consultant and computer programmer. I have been programming in MS Access since 1993 and using PHP with SQL Server for about 6 years. I have taught courses in graduate school and in work locations in a variety of subjects, and have managed Federal projects that ran training seminars.

My current employment is with the Cordoba Corporation, where I created a database for the Regional Transit Commission Discount Card Program (RTC-DCP) originally in Access 2, updated to Access 2003 in 2002 and in use by 14 Transit Agencies around the SF Bay Area. I currently perform technical support and training for the many users of this database.

I recently took early retirement after 12 years as the Senior Analyst/Programmer at the U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit in San Francisco. I created and maintained dozens of databases for every unit of the court, some that used MS Access as the back end and some that used Sql Server. I also maintained a database for employee leave with MySql as the back end.

For 11 years, 1978-1989, I served as the Director of Information Services, E. H. White and Company, Inc., in San Francisco where I managed many projects involving data collection, data entry, data analysis and reporting. I also created, maintained and trained users on data entry programs written in a variety of systems (e.g., dBase, zbasic).

I have a BS in Engineering from Arizona State University and an Masters of City Planning (MCP) from the University of California, Berkeley.

Approved subjects

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.

DOS

I have been writing scripts for DOS (and CP/M before that) since the creation of microcomputer in the 70's. I currently use 4DOS, a DOS alternative, which has an extended command set and a batch compiler, which I use extensively to automate batch processing.

Microsoft Access

I have been programming in MS Access since 1993, so I think I certifiable in this subject.

SQL

I have been writing SQL Commands since my early days with DBase, Foxpro and Access and then with SQL Server, PHP and MySQL.

Visual Basic

As an Access programmer for many years, I've used VBA for many years since it's really not possible to do serious work in access without create new functions and subroutines in modules.
