If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

In high school I was a terrible student. My grades included as much of the alphabet as is used for this purpose. Somehow I got into college, and my grades were much better there. I spent thirty-four years working in IT. I spent a few years as a computer operator. The remainder of my career, I was a successful programmer, programmer/analyst, systems analyst, and senior systems analyst.

I think I can understand the difficulties that a student needs help more than most. I also know that there are ways to overcome these problems, and find success.

Recently I have also been doing some on-line courses. Mostly programming and math related. I am very interested learning as much as I can.

Tutoring is a good match with my own interest in learning. My work as a Systems Analyst had a significant education component.

I helped our customers understand and clarify what they were asking us to do. Application developers would need help understanding requirements and how the design was intended to realize those requirements. Mentoring other application developers was also part of my job.
