I love helping people who want to learn. It is great to see things beginning to click in people and to help cultivate a passion for lifelong learning. Each student is different, so I offer personal assistance that not only helps in a particular subject, but also transfers into other areas of life and learning. I want to meet your current tutoring needs while investing in your continuing growth.

I offer tutoring in Computer Programming with a focus on C and C++. I am also available for Microsoft Office and Biblical studies.

Much of my experience has been centered around computers and software development. I have experience designing computer software, teaching software engineers, and working with the product users directly. My programming experience is primarily in C and C++ for Microsoft Windows as well as Java. My Bachelor of Science Degree is in Computer Science.

Developing software gave me more than just programming skills. It developed my writing skills, allowed for being creative, and required being able apply mathematics for problem solving. As I created software products, I acquired an advanced understanding of the Microsoft Office products and how to make use of them not only for work and school, but for daily life. If you need help with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, I am the perfect person to help you not only learn how to use them, but go beyond the basics to draw from the power these products offer.

Working with computers has opened doors for me to teach computer classes, mentor individuals, and even provide technical training in a corporate setting.

My passion is helping people grow in their understanding and application of the Bible, so if you are looking for help with Biblical Studies I can help. I have a Master of Divinity Degree from Asbury Theological Seminary and serve in a ministry capacity.

I truly enjoy serving others and seeing people grow and learn. I especially enjoy helping people connect learning and life in practical ways. I really believe that I can help you with your tutoring needs, and seek to do so with the hope that you will enjoy the subject while also developing and sharpening your learning skills.

Bible Studies

I earned my M.Div from Asbury Theological Seminary. I have served in various pastoral roles, including currently as an assistant pastor. I have prepared and taught numerous Bible studies as well as prepared numerous sermons. My M.Div classes included work in both Greek and Hebrew, which I continue to utilize in my personal studies as well as preparations for teaching and preaching. I have worked one on one with people who have desired to deepen their knowledge and study of the Bible.

C

I have over 15 years of experience in designing, programming, and debugging software written in C and C++ for the Microsoft Windows environment. When I worked as a Senior Software Architect, I trained software engineers and interns in the design and development of computer systems built using C/C++. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science.

C++

When I worked as a Senior Software Architect, I trained software engineers and interns in the design and development of computer systems built using C/C++. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science.

Computer Programming

My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I have 15+ years of experience in designing, programming, and debugging software written primarily in C and C++ for the Microsoft Windows environment. My programming experience also includes Pascal, Basic, Visual Basic, and some scripting languages. As a Senior Software Architect I trained software engineers and interns in the design, programming, debugging, and testing of computer systems for both private contracts and commercial products.

General Computer

I have taught people in a variety of walks of life how to use a computer. I have worked with young kids to senior adults in their 90s. Whether it is the basics of how to use a computer, digging into the control panel, installing programs, protecting your computer from viruses and malicious software, or simply clearing out the garbage files that build up within your computer. Need to learn how to organize and store information, transfer pictures and files, or to utilize the Internet, I can work help you. I am available to work with you in your general computer needs.

Microsoft Access

My background is as a software engineer with a bachelor of science in computer science. My work as an engineer includes a great deal of experience with database design, development, use which gives me the core competencies needed to understand and work with Microsoft Access. I have direct experience with Microsoft Access on a number of personal and work projects. In one particular job situation I used Microsoft Access to design, implement, and track contacts for classes I was teaching in different towns. My knowledge and experience with the Microsoft Office Suite enables me to utilize the strengths of its various applications, including Microsoft Access. I have been personally responsible for developing many database tables and querying for specific records in a variety of database platforms. Beyond the tables themselves, I have experience setting up reports and creating forms for entering and editing records. My personal desire is that you would not only learn how to use Microsoft Access, but that you would come to understand databases work and are used.

Microsoft Excel

I use Microsoft Excel at home and work. I have taught individuals and a group of professional administrators how to utilize the power of Excel. As a software engineer I helped the company’s CFO, a person well versed in Excel, tap into advanced functionality. I can help you learn the basics of a spreadsheet as well as help you unleash its power. I would love to help you discover uses for Excel beyond the basics.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is a tool I have used for presentations at work, for school projects, as well as for large gatherings in which I have taught. I can get you utilizing the basic functionality so that you are making your own slide shows. Beyond the basics, I can show you how to use transitions and animations to add some flash to your presentation. If you want to learn how to make your slideshow run automatically and continuously, I can help. I am ready to work with you in getting the most out of PowerPoint.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word for years both professionally and for personal use. If you are looking to master the basics, I can help you. A powerful feature that everyone should know how to use is creating and editing formatting styles to make complex formatting changes easier. There is so much more to learn including laying out pages, printing in booklet, utilizing the built-in thesaurus, setting up a mail merge, printing labels, inserting pictures and tables, and tracking changes as part of a collaborative effort. I want to help you learn how to use the power of Microsoft Word while also showing you how to teach yourself. Whether using Word for a school assignment, creating a flyer, making a reusable grocery list, or writing a novel, there are powerful features available to you. I believe that if I work with you, you could soon be helping others move beyond using it as a glorified typewriter.
