Computer Science

I was employed for many years by the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University where I taught courses, tutored students, and served as the primary computer support specialist for the faculty and staff. My computer support duties included the following:

(1) Managed acquisition/replacement/deployment of personal computers, printers and scanners.
(2) Installed/configured computers/networked printers/networked scanners.
(3) Installed/configured/provided troubleshooting and general assistance with:
Windows 7, Vista, XP, 98, 95, 3.1; DOS
Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access)
Adobe Acrobat
SPSS Statistical Package
Anti-virus software
Eudora E-mail Client
(4) Diagnosed and fixed hardware problems/installed new hardware components:
Memory chips, hard disks, CD/DVD drives, etc.

My courses used the SPSS statistical package and the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program. My classroom teaching was normally done in a computer lab in which each student had his/her own computer. With the use of a computer-screen projector, I would explain and demonstrate how to work through an assignment and the students would duplicate what I was doing on their own computers. I would provide individual assistance to any students having difficulties. Also, small groups and individual students often came to see me during my tutoring hours for assistance with their group projects, theses, dissertations and sometimes simply their homework assignments.

General Computer

I recently retired from my job with the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University. I was primarily a computer-support specialist, but my duties also included classroom teaching, small-group instruction and one-on-one tutoring, all of which I performed for more than 25 years. Most of this work was related to the use of statistical and spreadsheet software for social science research and financial problem-solving.

My courses used the SPSS statistical package and the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program. My classroom teaching was normally done in a computer lab in which each student had his/her own computer. With the use of a computer-screen projector, I would explain and demonstrate how to work through an assignment and the students would duplicate what I was doing on their own computers. I wrote and maintained all of the assignments myself, most of which were highly-detailed and quite lengthy (copies are available upon request). I would provide individual assistance to any students having difficulties. Also, small groups and individual students often came to see me during my tutoring hours for assistance with their group projects, theses, dissertations and sometimes simply their homework assignments.

Throughout the years, family members, friends and neighbors, both young and old, have all come to me for assistance with their schoolwork, their preparation for standardized tests, and their computer troubles. In addition to helping these people with their assignments in their mathematics and computer courses, I have often served as a proofreader/editor/thought-organizer/grammar-specialist for those doing written assignments.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
