All of Ron’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Ron’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

Algebra is about more than memorizing formulas. It offers a method of mental organization which you will use to solve problems the rest of your life. With good motivation, everyone can learn algebra. Instruction is tailored to each individual to identify and correct weak areas and build complete understanding and mastery.

Electrical Engineering

I have a BS in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, an MS in Electrical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, and am a licensed Professional Engineer in Electrical Engineering in the state of Georgia. I practiced design engineering for 40 years, retiring as Vice President, Principal Engineer at Wegener Communications.

English

Although many engineers are known for their lack of grammar, I have always been a fanatic about using the English language correctly. When in college, I was an editor of the school newspaper. Professionally, I have written many journal articles and user manuals. I would like to help you in any area that you feel needs strengthening.

French

I have been studying French for over 25 years, including enrollment in the Advanced Conversation class at the Alliance Française for the past 15 years. In addition to the Alliance, I have studied the language in France at the University of Montpelier. I have traveled all regions of France on over 20 separate trips. As a member of two French book clubs, I read over a dozen French books each year. I have developed a beginning curriculum for students interested primarily in learning to speak and understand French. Due to my love of French language and culture, I offer a reduced rate to my French students.

Microsoft Excel

Whatever your current level, I can help you become more confident in working with Excel. I offer instruction in all areas including advanced formulas, conditional formatting, data validation, Pivot Tables, and macros.

Microsoft Project

As a project director for over 20 years, I used Microsoft Project extensively in the development of many of my company's satellite communications products. I had sole responsibility in using Project to plan, modify, and execute the development process from initial concept through manufacturing and field deployment. I offer instruction from beginning to advanced level project directors or those who want to become project directors.

Microsoft Windows

I am a certified Microsoft Office Specialist and have worked with Microsoft Windows from Windows 1.0 following the MS DOS operating system. My recent experience includes Windows XP Pro and Windows 7. I use the My Computer and Control Panel to tailor the environment as desired by the user. I can set up networks and Work Groups to allow network file sharing. File organization is an area I recommend to increase efficiency in locating and using files.

Photography

As a photographer using a 35mm SLR camera (Nikon and Canon), I have worked with both film and digital images. I use the Corel PaintShop Photo Pro program to adjust my images. I have completed the Rocky Mountain School of Photography Basic Color Photography course. I have produced portfolios for artists and produced images used on several Internet Commerce sites.

QuickBooks

In my accounting consulting practice, I have used QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise versions. I have set up a complete Chart of Accounts for new businesses and performed the bookkeeping for those business using QuickBooks Pro. I used both QuickBooks Premier and Enterprise versions for a major non-profit corporation, using Premier for single-office organizations and Enterprise for multiple-office organizations. I have used the export to Excel feature to design specialized Excel workbooks. I produced the Field Financial Analysts procedure for a major non-profit corporation and assisted in teaching the use of Premier and Enterprise to Field Financial Analysts throughout Africa.
