I have over 30 years experience in technology and business operations, including Microsoft Office apps (especially Word, Excel & Access), Networking, Computer Hardware installation & support, Programming, Website design, and developing & teaching training classes to all ages & levels of adult "students".

As a tutor, I have the experience and ability to structure my training to the unique individual requirements of each "student", and the patience to guide the student in the learning process according to their specific needs and abilities.

I am a firm believer of the saying that goes something like “You can give a person a fish dinner and s/he will eat for a day, but if you teach the person how to fish, they will eat for a lifetime!” I will teach you the material and how to use the knowledge so that you will no longer need a tutor after a very short time!

My tutoring process includes:
1. Evaluating, understanding, and (sometimes) documenting the individual’s current capabilities and training needs.
2. Developing a plan that identifies the individual’s short and long term goals and objectives.
3. Implementing the plan with age-appropriate teaching techniques and subject matter, including continuous follow-up and continuous improvement of the process.

I am available most weeknights and weekends, and I can work with you in person, or "offline" with your project, or online via remote computer teaching, or answering questions via phone and/or email. I look forward to the opportunity to meet your tutoring requirements.

Vincent’s subjects

Business

I received my Bachelor in Business Administration from Florida Atlantic University with a concentration in Computer Science and a 3.92/4.0 GPA. My resume details my 30+ years management and hands-on of IT systems, networks, and telecommunications. I managed multiple Hardware/software integration projects, including PC security software products. I also have extensive business operations experience including implementing CRM, Accounting, Production, and customer support systems.

Computer Programming

I have worked commercially as a computer programmer since 1980, when I used FORTRAN and COBOL for business applications, learning to become proficient in structured languages. Lately I use Visual Basic & VBA, PHP, .NET, DHTML, and other Web related technologies aimed at integrating desktop & network applications with online & cloud based SAS delivery.

General Computer

I have been involved with computers and the Internet for over 30 years. I have experience with hardware, software, networking, social media, applications such as Microsoft Office (spreadsheets, word processing, database, etc.). I have taught all age groups, including older adults as a volunteer in the Bethesda Hospital Seniornet program. In addition to tutoring, I can also help you purchase, install, and use PCs and home networks, including wireless and "pad" devices.

Microsoft Access

I have been developing MS Access databases since 1992 for customers such as Siemens, ICN, Smith Barney Investments, Roberts’ Antique Auctions, PC Professor, and other small business clients. I also volunteered as an Access & Excel instructor for Bethesda Hospital’s (Boynton Beach, FL)nonprofit “SeniorNet” organization, teaching elderly(55+) individuals how to use computers. If you need help learning basic Microsoft Access, I can teach you in simple (non techie talk) lessons with examples to help you learn. When you are ready I can show you advanced topics, including writing your own Functions using VBA. I can show you how to set up your database, mine your data, create reports, build user forms and dashboards, and import/export data. From novice to intermediate and advanced, I will tailor your learning to meet your individual or small business needs.

Microsoft Excel

Advanced Microsoft Excel tutor, including basic & advanced features, macros, charts, formulas, pivot tables, writing VBA code, and converting Excel spreadsheets into Microsoft Access databases (and vice versa).

Microsoft Windows

I have over 30 years of experience working with all versions of Microsoft Windows, starting in 1985 with the original Windows, through Windows 7 and the Windows 8 Beta. From basic use to advanced concepts, including teaching, troubleshooting, building, and administering Windows PCs.

In addition to my hands-on knowledge of Windows, I have managed the IT departments of various companies, including the IT Help Desk functions.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Word since the first version was available to the public. I can teach you beginning and advanced concepts, including the use of tables of content, bookmarks, mail merge, inserting graphs from Excel, graphics from paint or other drawing programs, tables and charts, templates, and many other advanced features. I am also a creative designer, and I can help you with page layout and creatives for flyers, posters, greeting cards, scrap booking, and many other projects.

Networking (Computer)

I have expert home and small business computer and networking professional, specializing in MS Windows specific networking. I have over 30 years of experience setting up and managing networks and IT departments. I can design, install, manage, troubleshoot, and teach networking concepts, including hardware installation and software configuration.

Poker

Poker is easy to understand but hard to master. There is a huge amount of luck involved, especially at beginer and low stakes games, but to be really good at poker you need to understand the math, psychology and game theory/strategy behind the game.

I learned how to play various forms of poker while I was in the US Navy over 35 years ago, and I have been playing profitable poker ever since the Internet & TV craze has sparked the public's attention.

I have multiple online & casino accounts and can teach you the nuances between live poker and online poker. I can also give you pointers on all the local casino's (including paramutual facilities) poker rooms, and which games are the best for new players.

My specialty is No Limit Hold'Em poker and stud poker, but I can teach you basic through intermediate in almost all poker varieties. In order to learn to play poker well, you will need to be good at quickly calculating odds in your head, and I can teach you some shortcuts to help you succeed.

To get you started in your poker learning, here is a [free] first lesson: Learn to play poker for fun and for the social interaction and excitement it provides and you will be extremely satisfied. But if you want to learn for almost any other reason, be prepared for heartache, frustration and disappointment! Good Luck, and shuffle-up and deal!

Visual Basic

I have been using Microsoft's Visual Basic (VB) since it first debuted 1993 as Visual Basic 3.0 Professional Edition. At that time I was developing mainly stand-alone desktop applications for use by my small business consulting clients.

I also specialized in using a form of VB called Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) which was basically Microsoft's implementation of a scripting language that was embedded and included in their Office applications like Excel spreadsheets and Access database.

I have continued to use VB through version 6.0, but Microsoft started to transition VB into its ".NET" framework since 2002, and now has pretty much phased out VB 6.0 even though many of us continue to use that version for certain tasks.

I have transitioned to the VB that is incorporated into Visual Studio .NET, and can also tutor you in the "consumer" version called Visual Basic .NET Express Edition (VBE), which can be downloaded for FREE from Microsoft.

I can teach you the basics of the user interface (IDE), writing Functions, designing User Interfaces, Forms, and integrating the .NET Framework, ASP.NET, Visual Basic, and HTML to produce web applications.

VB, especially when used in the .NET framework is a fairly complicated tool, so you will need to dedicate serious time on your own as well in tutoring sessions, to even become a novice, but I can help you if you so choose! Good Luck!

Web Design

I have been building web sites for many years, using HTML, PHP, scripting, layout, tables, css style sheets, server and/or client side scripting, and linking to databases such as mySQL.

I can also explain and show you how to register your own domain name (I own over 150 domains myself), get a web hosting account (I have accounts with the 3 top hosting providers), and get your own web page online in under an hour!
