A computer science major - with a minor in Math - has taken me all over the world, working in jobs that have varied from working as a computer scientist for the US Department of Defense to teaching computer and networking classes at a community college to my current position as a software project manager for FedEx.

Along the way, my passion for teaching has only increased. I still get excited when I see my students learning to 'connect the dots' by themselves and learn that not only can they do what they thought they could not but that they can enjoy it too.

As a tutor I understand how to adjust my teaching style to suit a student's own learning styles and unique needs. If a student struggles with Math but the desire to learn and succeed is there, I do not rest until I have helped them achieve their goals.

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.

Computer Programming

I have a Bachelor's degree on Computer Science and a Master's Degree in Science in Software Engineering. I have over 13 active projects in my portfolio and I manage code for at least 5 of these projects.

From a conceptual perspective, I can teach/tutor people wanting to learn general concepts. From a language perspective I feel comfortable with various languages but mainly Java and Ruby.

Computer Science

15 years ago, I started a Bachelors degree in Computer Science. This degree led to many wonderful experiences in my professional life, starting with my experience at a high security classified facility during my tenure at Department of Defense. At DoD, I worked as a Computer Scientist, and I had the opportunity to travel overseas to help others in my profession. Later on, my degree and expertise brought me to ETH in Switzerland where I presented my research at the Software Engineering Approaches for Offshore and Outsourced Development (SEAFOOD) conference during 2008. This led to a series of events that now have me managing the multimillion eCommerce software portfolio for FedEx Office.

Linux

I have installed and configured hundreds of Linux based machines and servers. My personal PC works in Debian Linux and I have been working with Linux system since 1999.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been working with Microsoft Outlook since its original version. Outlook is a fantastic took that can take your efficiency and effectiveness to the next level. Especially if you know how to properly use the task activities together with email and the calendar. On the last 12 years of professional experience, between education, infrastructure and software development Outlook has been in the center of all.

Microsoft Project

As a Certified Project Management Professional (PMP), a Project Manager Advisor for a Fortune 500 company and a Technologist enthusiast, I have been in the Project Management profession for more than 10 years. During this time I have managed, planned and analyzed hundreds of projects of various budgets and spans of times. During this time I have used multiple versions of Microsoft Project. I started on MS Project 2003 and am now using 2010. On October, 2011 I took a three day course to master Microsoft Project 2010. The course (50413A Mastering MS Project 2010) covered advance techniques on how to use Project from a single project to multiple programs.

Prealgebra

When studying for my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science I also choose to minor in math. It is a subject I have a passion for and as math is so important in the world of computer science I have used those basic skills every day of my working life.

When I tutor math I can help students understand why math is important in the real world and how it can become interesting and maybe even exciting. I can tutor students taking almost any high school math class.
