ASVAB

I am uniquely qualified to coach the taking of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Exams. I scored all 99's (there are no 100s) on the exam here in Clark county, Nevada as part of my scholastic career.

Study guides that are available are required and should be purchased prior to enlisting help, but you may just need a little help to conquer a particular subject or remember to address a detail in proper fashion.

The ASVAB are an all day ordeal and preparation must include the ability to organize your thoughts and manage your pace, too.

Business

I am a twice seasoned veteran entrepreneur, business executive and venture analyst. I earned an Executive MBA from University of Phoenix with honors.

I have managed P&L and Financial Statements for over a decade. I have a deep respect for the business ciricula and look forward to discussing Marketing, Management, and certain aspects of Financial Accounting in depth or at a topical level.

I am a viable sounding board for thesis work, senior projects, or full-on business plans as well.

Separately, I am an expert automation developer for Easy Language in the TradeStation Financial Market analysis and trading system. I support large quantitative application requiring large, multiple screen systems. See general computing specialty for details about my experience developing those big computer systems.

C

I have written the C Programming language for nearly 2 decades. I am versed in data structures, operators, and functions, pointers and referenced memory. There is very little regarding this original form of the language that I am not capable of showing mastery of or respect for.

I have also written C for real-time (VRTX/32M) and batch oriented subsystems.

C++

I have written programs in the C++ Programming language for nearly 2 decades. I am versed in data structures, operators, functions, pointers and referenced memory. I have also become quite proficient with templates, classes, operators, friendship and inheritance, polymorphism, namespaces, and exceptions.

There is very little regarding this form of the original C language that I am not capable of showing mastery of or respect for.

I have also written C++ for real-time and batch oriented subsystems.

COBOL

I have written programs using the COmmon Business Oriented Language - COBOL Programming language for many years. I am versed in data structures, operators, and functions, and referenced memory. There is very little regarding this original form of computer language that I am not capable of showing mastery of or respect for.

I have also written COBOL for large business systems and batch oriented systems on Control Data and VAX mainframes.

Computer Engineering

I have engineered the use of computers, peripheria, inputs, outputs, control, user interaction, and tactile feedback. There aren't many problems in computer engineering that I have yet to face. I look forward helping you meet these challenges head on.

Computer Programming

I have faced challenges in computer programming and logic for many years. Puzzles, conundrums, theroems, axioms, and hypothesis all lead to developing a useful toolbox of solutions that can be applied throughout any complex and/or simple single task. I look forward to helping you meet these challenges as well.

Computer Science

I am skilled at helping students of computer science. The discipline requires a bold and brave statement about learning, psychology, logic, organization, timing, grace, elegance, math symbology, and many other diverse traits. The computer scientist will be the only other person to know almost everything about the subject material at hand since they had to write the programs and develop the specific knowledge in such a way as to train a computer to help.

In direct relation, the computer scientist must craft their toolbox used throughout a career. Included is data structures, state machines, formal languages, finite automata, virtualization, and other directly related material to better understand the "cyberclay" used to build useful tools.

I enjoy helping anyone aspiring to succeed in this area of learning.

Desktop Publishing

I have used MS Publisher and various graphical programs to adapt information of all kinds to various printable formats. The challenges faced when realizing the choices made reflect the choices being presented now and so on make up the give and take forum that is the publishing media.

Color, size, resolution, content, impact, theme, voice, legibility, and results are all factors that must be addressed in any good piece of collateral being developed. I look forward to help you meet these challenges head on.

Fortran

I have written programs using the FORTRAN Programming language for many years. I am versed in data structures, operators, and functions, and referenced memory. There is very little regarding this original form of computer language that I am not capable of showing mastery of or respect for.

I have also written Fortran for large number crunching systems and batch oriented systems on Control Data and VAX mainframes.

General Computer

Looking at computers as tools, makes us realize that they are comprised of specific elements similar to home theater systems. Specialized devices handle specific tasks. Also, certain programs handle the basic computer operations, too. When it is understood at a basic level, the computer stops being so mystical and begins to be the tool it is meant to be. I look forward to helping you understand computers to make them friendly tools for your use.

I am also a personal computer builder, having developed several machines from simple single core Pentiums to massive, multiscreen(up to 12) machines with multiple graphics cards, and quad core processors. My current pet design project is at the extremely high end where 6 cores and 12 logical execution units are just enough and where 4Ghz may be the slowest acceptable processing speed... See my business specialty for applications that need these big systems!

Marketing

I am a twice seasoned veteran entrepreneur, business executive and venture analyst. I earned an Executive MBA from University of Phoenix with honors.

I have managed Marketing activities for over a decade. I have a deep respect for the marketing curricula and look forward to discussing Marketing, Management, and certain aspects of Marketing in depth or at a topical level.

I am a viable sounding board for thesis work, senior projects, or full-on business plans as well.

Separately, I am a veteran broadcaster and multimedia manager. I have been doing voice overs and public market campaigning for quite a while.

Microsoft Access

I have used MS Access since it was delivered on OFFICE 2.0 in the days of Windows 3.1... Since then, 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007 and now 2010 versions have lead to more and more ways that Access can help interact with data.

I cover the basics of hierarchy in data, the use of tables, queries, reports, pivots, and other miraculous features all designed to make tools for you to effect your data. I look forward to assisting you meet this system head on and get it to help you, too.

Microsoft Outlook

Saying that MS Outlook is an email program is underestimating the features that have grown into the program. Outlook can manage multiple stream of email, capture events, manage information, form schedules, and at the enterprise level, sort out resources like meeting rooms, attendees and equipment.

I look forward to helping you meet these challenges head on.

Microsoft Project

I have used MS Project since it was delivered in the days of Windows 95,and on through 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007 and now 2010 versions have lead to more and more ways that Project can help interact with Time Oriented Layout and Definitive Task Oriented Graphics.

Many see Project as "rocket science" after using Excel to manage time. Others are stretching their use of the program, for example to manage multiple projects or many other exciting forms of time and resource management schemes that are covered by this extensive system.

I cover the basics of presentation, the use of structured data, and other miraculous features all designed to make presentation of time and tasks suited for you and your projects. I look forward to assisting you meet this system head on and get it to help you, too.

I have used MS Publisher since it was delivered on OFFICE 2.0 in the days of Windows 3.1... Since then, 95, 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007 and now 2010 versions have lead to more and more ways that Publisher can help interact with Page Oriented Layout.

Many see publisher as "rocket science" after using any example of "easy-ware" such as PageMaker or PrintMaster. Others are stretching their use of the program, for example to design web pages, tri-fold brochures, or many other exciting forms of presentation that are covered by this extensive system.

I cover the basics of overall presentation, template review, changing layouts, the use of tables, and other miraculous features all designed to make presentation suited for you and your data. I look forward to assisting you meet this system head on and get it to help you, too.

Microsoft Windows

In the early days, MS Windows was merely a means to an end, a way to present information that was already being manipulated in other, more manual ways. Today, after the migration of processes through 95, 98, 2000, XP, VISTA, and now Windows 7 those means have become huge aides in the manipulation and evaluation of information that helps us in our daily lives.

Realizing the the steps to making a process great for everyone may mean that the "furnishings" get moved around once in a while or useful features change to be more effective for more users.

I look forward to introducing these features to you in whatever method you need to see the ways to be more effective with the computer and Windows to meet the challenges you face daily.

Pascal

I have written programs using the PASCAL Programming language for many years. I am versed in data structures, operators, and functions, pointers, and referenced memory. There is very little regarding this original form of computer language that I am not capable of showing mastery of or respect for.

I have also written PASCAL for many systems on Control Data and VAX mainframes.

Also, due to the close facsimile to PASCAL, I have written many programs in TradeStation EASY LANGUAGE that is used to automate trading indications and actual executions. The Programming System resides within the TradeStation Software that runs on "WINTEL" Personal Computers running recent versions of Windows.

Public Speaking

I have spoke to audiences of upwards of 5000 and as few as 2. I have been a radio announcer and TV personality. I hold a master’s in business administration that required two years of continual speech and lecture style presentations. My gifts are simple and my assistance in this area valuable. I have several common formulae for loosening up the tension, remembering lines, and structuring the speech or presentation for maximum impact. Remembering or knowing your audience may or may not be an advantage as well. I am eager to help you combat the fear of rejection and conquer the beast that won’t let you address your audiences effectively.

Study Skills

A good Coach and Mentor for improving study skills, my target age range are people from 6th grade on up. I assess all aspects of study including: attitude, posture, environment, content and methods.
Study skills are best evaluated when facing your most difficult subject material. By training yourself to deal with the most challenging issues first, these skills translate even easier to
application for easier subject material.
