For success in school or in business, you must be able to comprehend the importance of what is being presented to you and respond effectively. Listening well is always the best first step, and it's the first thing that I will do to discover what you need to succeed in whatever challenge you face.

I can work with you to improve your classroom and reading comprehension, test taking skills, and ability to organize and present reports. Trained as an instructor in the US Navy, I have worked with many young people to achieve their goals in the classroom, and specialized in providing the extra study required to master difficult subjects. Taking good notes - in class, in meetings, and while doing research - is a skill that will last a lifetime.

Then, I can show you how to better use the tools available to create effective reports, proposals and presentations.

Well, I guess that's all there is to say for now because it's not about me... how can I help _you_?

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.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been working with Photoshop in a professional capacity for over 15 years, I have an in-depth knowledge of Photoshop best practices and production techniques.

ASVAB

I passed the ASVAB with the highest score possible (an AFQT of 99), qualifying for any position the military has to offer. I joined the Navy, selecting Electronic Warfare as my specialty. I prepared with a standard practice exam book and can work with you to identify your own strengths and weaknesses, and help you focus on improving the scores in specific areas.

I also worked in Navy Recruiting for 4 years, and can explain how your test scores will impact the career options available to you.

JavaScript

With over 15 years experience writing Javascript, I actively work with today's web libraries including JQuery, Dojo, and Mootools, integrating them with HTML5 and CSS3 based web designs.

In addition, I am also currently working with node.js to provide javascript based server-side scripting and services.

I can provide both a general foundation, and resources for accomplishing specific programming goals.

Networking (Computer)

I have worked in Information Technology as a systems administrator and manager for many years, and have hired and trained many people for desktop support, server administration, and network configuration and management.

If you are pursuing certification, I can provide training, mentoring, and guidance from a hiring manager's point of view.
