I have experience with computers and living in general. I would like to share that with you and hope if you have any questions that you will ask them. I have over 15 years of Data Entry experience, and wanted originally to be a civil engineer or architect. I had to deviate from that path and went into data entry and computers. I went to Regional Occupational Program in San Mateo County twice in 1989 and 1998 for computer training, and I attended Chico State University in the 1980s. I have a vehicle and can drive it legally in the bay area to come to you for tutoring. I am currently attending San Francisco State University, where I am taking courses in Spanish and Technical and Professional Writing. I would love to copy and paste my resume, but I cannot do that. I can see why. It would be too easy to copy and paste and be done with it, and you would know nothing about me. I am single, never married. I go to church and have a straight, single, Christian life.

Gregg replied on 6/1/2012

I do not judge others on what they know or don't know. I understand things that were once unfamilar to me; I am just passing along that knowledge. It was a pleasure serving you Kennith. I am glad you are satisfied!

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.

Civil Engineering

I was a civil engineering student at Chico State University of California in 1985. I didn't get my degree there, but did get three A.S. degrees; one each in Physics, Mathematics and Engineering through the College of San Mateo.

English

I am a native born Californian and have been reading, writing and speaking proper English for 51 years.

Fortran

I took Fortran and ran it on a DEC PDP 11 computer back in the 80s.

General Computer

Windows 7, Vista, XP, 98, 95--I've used them all and will tutor all of them. When I first learned computers I was using Windows 3.1

Microsoft Excel

I have worked with Excel, both versions 2003 and 2007/10. I feel like I know both fairly well. I know how to calculate formulas using the formula bar and by clicking on the fields.

I worked for 15 years doing data entry work, with a variety of software programs, at a variety of jobs. For 80% of the time I was using Excel.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook 2010 for about 2 years. I feel I understand it well and have taken a course in it at the local community college.

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft Word for all of my documents, and I am in school, so I feel like I know most of the common features of it.

I understand both versions, 2003 and 2010. I have learned it using Professor Teaches Word. I feel I am advanced to expert level. I know how the buttons work in 2010. I use 2010 almost exclusively. If you are using an older version, I am rusty on 2003 and before.

Phonics

I learned how to write the old school way. I learned the letter combinations and the different sounds. I grew up in the 60s when phonics was part of the daily curriculum.

I also attended the introduction course, for Project Read but didn't become a tutor for personal reasons.

I also have a Competent Toastmaster (CTM) certificate through Toastmasters International, which I received in 1996.

Spanish

I took 3 Spanish courses up at CSU Chico in the late 70s/early 80s and have retained most of it. I am looking forward to strengthening my Spanish skills, as well as teaching ESL. I want to help the student with both English and Spanish.

Patient tutor — Gregg was a very patient tutor who did not look at me different because I was having a hard time grasping something. Instead he went and found other methods of explaining things to me so I would understand better. If you are looking for someone who is patient and will find alternative ways to explain something to you, Gregg is the tutor for you. ...
