I have been involved with Computer Programming since 1985. I started as a programmer analyst for the Quaker Oats company and then for the Kraft Foods company. In these roles, I had to review a program in several different programming languages (COBOL, SQL, Visual Basic, HTML) and had to make the necessary changes for production support purposes. In addition, I then moved on to become a senior business analyst that worked with a team of programmers to translate for them the business requirements from laymen's terms to technical requirements.
I also enjoy teaching and tutoring very much. To teach these students at this age would be a very fun and exciting challenge for me.
I am a qualified Computer Scientist because of my 29 years in the Application Development area in my career. In addition, I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Loyola University, Chicago, IL.
In addition, I have a passion about teaching students with real world examples that allows the theory in computer science subjects to come alive with practical and pragmatic advice on handling issues.
I have experience and passion for teaching this subject.
Thanks for your consideration.
I have been using Dreamweaver since its inception when it belong to MacroMedia. In using Dreamweaver, I have been able to set up and design web sites with great confidence and ease. It does have a learning curve in understanding the tool, however, it's worth the effort of learning it.
Dreamweaver combines the design and technical aspects for those webmasters that want to learn the HTML equivalent or for those that simply want to design and see their efforts visually. When Adobe purchased the complete MacroMedia tool set, Dreamweaver became more standard as a Web Design tool adhering to the Industry standard. Now with Adobe's complete set of tools, Dreamweaver integrates well with Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, and stands as the tool of choice for most Web Designers.
If you are interested in putting together a lesson plan to getting you up to speed with Dreamweaver, please set your self up with WyzAnt and get in touch with me.
My Information Services experiences spans 26 years going all the way back to the creation of the Personal Computer through today's quad core processing. In addition, I can provide a history of the computer and how it has evolved over the years. I have provided training in understanding the inner workings of the computer to showing how a programming language can create automated processes lessening the need for manual processes.
In understanding the computer, the student would gain an appreciation of whether or not they would like to continue studying in different areas of computer science or to take a more specific study area such as web design, web programming, database development, java, or .net technologies.
I am currently working with Apple devices in day to day operations. This includes the Mac Book Pro, iPad 3, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPhone, and iTouch.
I am familiar with working with each environment from a client's perspective as well as from a Developer's perspective in working with Xcode as my IDE and Objective C, Cocoa, and within the iOS system.
With this development environment, I am building applications for the iPad and know how to work with the Apple distribution models.
If you are looking to get a great understanding of the Apple devices, how to generally work with them, or how to develop applications, I can help any student gain great insight and reduce any learning curve prior to the student beginning to work or use the Apple family of products.
I have been certified by Microsoft Access and have been working and developing solutions using MS Access 2010 on multiple projects.
As a MS Outlook user for the last 20 years, I feel that my practical knowledge and hands on experience in setting several Exchange servers would be an optimal knowledge base used for tutoring.
The knowledge that I can bring to the novice is the basic level of training in reviewing and working with MS Outlook and in the many tasks that can help someone optimize their time and provide vital scheduling information.
Working with a student and having them learn MS Outlook by doing would be the route I would take and provide them some insights from my work's experience.
I have been involved in the Information Technology industry for the last 29 years. In those years, I have started as a programmer analyst and gone up the ranks to CIO. During that time period, I became PHP certified and have been working with MS Project since 1999 and have been certified by Microsoft as a MS Project instructor.
I have been in the Information technologies field for over 30 years now. I remember when Windows 1 was released and how I had to teach this to our Network team at Quaker Oats. Since then I have been certified from Microsoft on Windows as part of my technology stack.
I am confident that I can help students get in tune with working with Windows all the way through programming in Windows framework.
I have been involved in the Information Technology industry for the last 29 years. In the last 6 years, I have worked directly with Oracle in implementing the EBusiness Suites of Applications such as General Ledger and Accounts Payable. My experience is with the Applications as well as with the Database engine. The versions of the Oracle Application is 12.1.3 and the database is 11rg2. I am a current Oracle Application Database Administrator as well as Database designer using SQL Pro as my front end environment.
I have worked with Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications (Excel) for over 25 years. I have been certified buy Microsoft as a Developer for VB, VBA, and .Net.
In doing so, I can guide a student through the many areas in VB that they need to be aware of, provide a method of building an application, show how to diagnose issues, errors, and provide a number of examples of VB/VBA applications that I have written.
My approach to the student would be to understand what he/she are trying to accomplish, establish a syllabus, schedule, and provide additional reference material, and get the student to where he/she wants to be in understanding Visual Basic.
