My name is Maria. I just recently relocated to the northern NJ area on December 1st, and am currently offering various tutoring options. My love and passion is all things 'technical' mainly Windows
-based personal computers. I have extensive experience with virus removal, software and hardware upgrades, and training on most Office Suite software products. I have a plug-and-play mentality and actually enjoy resolving technical issues of all kinds. I am the 'go-to' person for my family, friends and past employers.
People think that I am sometimes crazy, but computers, at least to me, are just puzzles that have various pieces. Each piece fits in a certain way to make the puzzle complete. I feel that when a piece is missing-i.e., the machine or software is not functioning properly-it just needs to be assessed and refitted, so to speak, to resolve whatever issue is occurring at that moment in time. So far, I have not come across any problem that I have not been able to resolve. I pride myself on my technical expertise.
I am currently pursuing my Associates in Information Technology with a concentration in Computer
and Network Security. I plan to complete my degree by the end of 2015. I am also simultaneously studying to become CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ certified within the next year as well.
I have been a Sr. Technical Support Analyst for about ten years, in the past, and am revisiting this career option once again. I take great pleasure in teaching novices and intermediate users alike. I have a tremendous amount of patience and love to see people of all ages grasp a technical concept or even master computers and software alike.
I am looking forward to hearing from you, so that I can help you on your technical journey, whether short or long. I have many references, especially from family and friends, regarding my work ethic and technical ability.
Thank you all and God Bless,
