Approved subjects are in bold.
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.
I have worked on several ASP .NET application over the years. Some have been dynamic websites, while others have been windows applications. Most projects involved database connectivity.
I first learned C on my own. Later one summer, I did take a C programming class in Georgetown to further my knowledge. It was a very good language to learn as many of the newer languages still have syntax that is similar.
I actually learned Java first, which in many aspects is similar to C#. C# is the cleanest of the C-Style languages. It is fully OO language that I have used on a quite a few projects.
This is the language I learned Computer Science on for the most part in the Unix/Linux environment. After that, my first job, all projects were written in the Visual C++ in the Windows environment. It is the language I used for the longest period of time, with a more recent switch to C# and Java.
I have programmed in Assembly, ADA, PASCAL, BASIC, C, C++, C#, Java, Perl, Python, etc. Language is pretty much the syntax one uses, computer programming is the main task all of them are trying to perform. I have been programming for almost 20 years now in these various languages.
My major at University of Maryland, at that time ranked 4th in the nation for the field, was Computer Science. I feel I have extensive knowledge of the subject and it has helped me through every job I have held in the IT industry since. I feel I have a strong broad understanding of various computer science topics ( data structures, programming, architectures, security, design, etc.).
Dreamweaver was the IDE we choose to build most web applications in. Especially applications that did not requires ASP .NET integration. It is a great software development environment, clean, and very powerful.
I have used access from the very early days on several work and school related projects. For smaller scale databases, it is my favorite. Very easy to use and has a ton of features that make it very powerful. If you need a simple solution to take data and display result and reports all in one product, this is a great solution. If you need a backend for a simple website, this is the perfect solution. The SQL in access is a simple yet very power language to learn and understand. Learning it can provide you the skills to interact with most popular databases currently in the market.
I have managed several projects at two different companies using Microsoft Project. It is one of the better tools currently available to see a project through its entire lifecycle. For me, the most beneficial features of Microsoft Project are it's work breakdown structure and scheduling tools.
I have used and maintained Windows operating systems ever since the dos days when Windows 3.1 came to be. Through the years I have installed and troubleshooted just about ever version of Windows for work or personal PC's. I feel very comfortable with the operating system.
When I first started programming, one of the classes I took was in BASIC programming. Later in college, my minor was decision information systems, and the class required us to code in visual basic. A lot had changed in the language. Since then, I have coded in Visual Basic on several real-world projects. It is a great language and a great environment to code in, especially for beginners. I think its strongest selling point is its visual aspect to programming. Being able to drag and drop controls and quickly develop functional applications is perhaps its strongest selling point. I feel I am very familiar with this language and can assist anyone in learning it.
When I was still a little kid, my first job in the IT industry was a contract with the world bank dealing with a new technology, basically HTML for an internal website. It was the first website I ever built, using a browser called Mosiac to view it, but not realizing how this technology would soon transform the way we live. Since then, in the past 20 years I have designed and developed hundreds of websites for various clients, classes and for myself. I feel I have a ton of knowledge in this field and can be of great assistance to anyone that requires help in this subject matter.
