Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Algebra 1

In Algebra we discover how to solve mathematical problems, which comes in handy when dealing with the numerical problems of life. I have experience in solving problems, especially mathematical problems, because of my education and computer programming background. Working as a software engineer required that I understood and could apply algebra in order to solve real world issues. As a parent, I often helped with my daughters who have creative instincts rather than a mathematical nature to both grasp the concepts in algebra that they were being taught as well as help them to see how to apply those concepts to life. Regarding formal education, my Bachelors of Science Degree in Computer Science included instruction in algebra as well as training in how to translate the concepts and formulas into computer languages. I believe I can help you also figure out how to understand and utilize algebra.

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.

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.

Elementary Math

I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Computer Science which built upon my Elementary Math skills. These math skills have been applied and sharpened in my work as a professional software engineer. I continue to keep my math skills sharp through personal applications in daily my life and by working with websites that focus on Elementary Math. If you need help with math, I am here to serve your needs.

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 Windows

I fall into the category of a power user of the Windows operating system with have years of experience in a variety of settings in which I have trained people to utilize the O/S itself and the features found in Windows based applications. I have been designing, programming, and debugging software written for the Microsoft Windows environment since the release of Windows 3.1. As a Senior Software Architect, I trained clients, support staff, software engineers, and interns in how to install, use, and maintain applications designed for Microsoft Windows. As a Computer Instructor, I have taught computing classes to adults from age 18 to 94, on topics which included basic and advanced features of the Win O/S.

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.

Prealgebra

Applying math in daily life is one of the things that comes out of Prealgebra. I have experience in applying math through a combination of personal use as well as professionally using it in computer programming. My Bachelor's of Science Degree in Computer Science sharpened my math skills and deepened my understanding of how it applies to problem solving. If you need help with math as you move into Algebra, I am here to serve you.

Reading

I love to read and am usually working through multiple books at the same time. I am self-taught in many subjects simply through reading. Reading is an important life skill. Applying for a job, staying up in your career field, or even being able to compare products when shopping requires the ability to read. If you are looking for someone to work with you on improving your reading, I am available to serve you.

Study Skills

In pursuing my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees, I learned and put into practice a variety of study skills that I used myself or introduced in group settings. As a parent I worked with my two daughters, who are now in college, to develop, improve, and refine their study skills. My younger daughter had problems into middle school, but by working with her, I helped her develop solid study skills that enabled her to enter a Post-Secondary program during her senior year of high school and complete 12 credit hours of college before her high school graduation. I am currently working with a 6th grader and a 3rd grader to help them improve their study skills. I recognize that each student is different, even so I enjoy the challenge and fun of helping them find the right skills for them and discover when and how to apply those skills. I have also found that minor adjustments can often make a world of difference in helping a student improve his or her studies.

Writing

I have extensive experience writing and editing materials for academic, ministry, technical, and general use. In obtaining my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees I wrote many papers in an academic environment using the MLA citation style. Writing within the area of ministry has included the creation of sermons, teaching materials, and a large volume of short communications that have been distributed to the congregation. On the technical side, as a Senior Software Architect I created, wrote, and edited many documents for the purpose of identifying system requirements and describing software design. The source code I wrote included clear documentation in the form of written comments to assist in maintenance and expansion of the program. I also encouraged other software engineers to provide ample comments to their source code. Furthermore, I was actively involved in the review and editing of end user materials that our company produced, especially materials related to using the program’s features. In the realm of general use, I have been writing a periodical newsletter for several years that is sent to friends and family informing them of our family’s adventure. My experience in writing is very diverse.
