I've been working in my career field for about sixteen years. I have filled positions in companies as a Systems Analyst and currently employed as a Senior Network Technician; I've been with my current company for over seven years. My tutoring hours are normally between 5pm - 8pm Monday through Friday and 10am - 5pm Saturday and 3pm - 5pm on Sundays.
I hold a Masters Degree in Information Technology and have extensive knowledge with all current versions of Microsoft Windows going all the way back to Windows 3.1. I also have extensive knowledge of the operation and configuration of Microsoft Office; including basic formulas for Excel. I also have some experience with Webpage design.
The bulk of my duties at all of my previous jobs and my current one has been break/fix so I have over twenty years of experience fixing software as well as hardware related problems. I can also tutor on virus removal, PC repair, wireless security, encryption and networking. Wireless router configuration and security and centralized network storage. I can also tutor on backing up essential files, erasing the hard drive, re-installing the operating system, all hardware required drivers and then re-installing software.
I am personable, patient, positive and have great customer service skills. It's impossible to know everything about computers but give me some time to 'figure it out' and I can normally learn on the spot and then tutor. My normal disposition is upbeat with a can-do attitude.
I consider myself an intermediate when setting up an Access Database. I have designed numerous databases for my current company as well as my previous company.
I have knowledge of creating tables, creating key fields, creating forms, creating reports as well as some basic formula for creating queries.
At my current job, I am the Go-To person to resolve current databases that I didn't create. It takes me some time but eventually I can figure out how to modify per the user's request. I also have limited knowledge with Access Programming.
I've always used Microsoft Outlook during my entire career. As a Senior Network Support Technician on my current job I support about 800+ employees with hardware/software related issues. I have experience with Outlook configuration, network connection configuration, Out of Office, signature, attaching files, adding to block senders list and configuring Outlook to connect to an MS Exchange Server.
I have MS Office 2007 on my PC at home and have configured it to retrieve Comcast email.
I also have experience importing/exporting contacts, emails and calendar events. I also have experience setting up Outlook encryption.
I have experience using MS Windows from Win 3.1 up to Windows 7. I'm currently training myself to use and support Windows 8. I troubleshoot Windows related problems everyday including Internet Explorer (all versions) and all native Windows OS default applications.
I fix a plethora of Windows OS related problems including networking, virus removal, configuration settings, multiple monitor displays, network printing, scanning, registry edits, blue screen of death, lockups, corrupted files and Windows repairs.
I have more than sixteen years of computer trouble shooting, repair and networking. I've setup wireless networks which includes wireless/wired router configuration, extended wireless networks, routers, switches and some fiber optics.
I also have experience troubleshooting network connection issues such as TCP/IP stack issues, wireless/wired NIC Cards, DNS, Windows Server 2008 and older, WAN and LAN.
I've also setup wireless printers, configured a router to support NAS, configuring Workgroups or joining a domain, setting up server/client or peer to peer networking. I also have experience with wireless security such as properly changing the logon credentials to access the router, setting up a strong password key and configuring the security.
I'm also familiar with DOS based commands such as Ping, Trace, Net, ipconfig, netstat and hostname just to name a few.
My very first permanent computer job in 1997 (Network Analyst) was to connect over half of the company's computer to the network. This involved PCs running Win95 and installing NICs, configuring the network settings, creating and patching down network cables and configuring domain information in Windows.
In my current job I also do some of the network administrator's work like unlocking Active Directory accounts, joining new PCs to the domain, moving/changing/editing Active Directory computer accounts. Minor fixes for domain servers as well as troubleshooting Citrix environment connection issues.
