I am very passionate about teaching and no misunderstanding is too difficult to remedy. I can tutor a multitude of subjects including English, Computer based topics, Martial Arts, and Mathematics.

I have been an English enthusiast since I was child. I've been writing creatively since age 7, am a published author, excelled in all English courses and have taught English as a second language in Huizhou, China for one year upon completing foundation courses at Global TESOL College, Manhattan.

For computers, I am very familiar with Microsoft Office and Windows as well as many web based functions. I will be attending CUNY Queens, majoring in Graphic Design. I also served 4.5 years in the United States Marine Corps as a Cyber Network Specialist. My duties in the military included IT Support, Network Installation and Administration, and Computer Application Instruction.

I am extremely patient, friendly and empathetic. If you are struggling in any of the coursework I cover or are seeking to learn something new, feel free to contact me. You will quickly find that among the desert we call an education system, I am a much needed oasis of learning.

Drawing

I have taken several courses in all different mediums. Drawing tends to be the most basic of the arts depending on what medium you are using within drawing. I have experience cartooning, drawing from observation and spray painting professionally as fundraisers for non profit organisation. I have a firm grasp upon the types of mediums, methods used as well as the abstract thinking needed to instruct and inspire a student to challenge their artistic abilities.

Martial Arts

I have been a student of Shotokan Karate for 5 years. I have also been trained in the military in mixed martial arts as it is applicable to military application. I understand aspects of physical fitness and have the self control to be able to instruct basic self defense techniques as well as basic Okinawan Shotokan traditional karate.

Microsoft Access

I was an IT specialist in the USMC. I became proficient in Microsoft Access, developing a database to track equipment in excess of $2.3 million. These databases were used in garrison state side as well as in Afghanistan in a combat environment to track the statuses and locations of communications equipment.

Microsoft Outlook

I was an IT specialist in the USMC. I provided IT support to a large number of clients, troubleshooting problems in a large campus setting. Additionally, in field and combat environments, I built and maintained Microsoft Outlook services via Email Servers using Microsoft Server and Active Directory. I am familiar with its installation, setup, functions and common problems.

Microsoft Windows

I was an IT specialist in the USMC. I commonly held a helpdesk position helping with any problems that may arise on Windows and the software installed. I am familiar with installing, setup, cloning via ghostcast as well as Windows functions to include some command prompt.

Networking (Computer)

I was an IT specialist in the USMC. I have 4.5 years experience building, setting up, maintaining and troubleshooting networks to include LAN, WLAN, and SWAN (Satellite Network). I have had CompTIA training (certified Net+), Sec+ training, A+ training as well as CISCO CCNA training.

Photography

I have had classes on photography and am an avid photographer. Possessing a Nikon D3100 with 5-6 lenses, I have a firm grasp and understanding on aperture and shutter speed settings and their effects upon a digital image.

Being artistically experienced, I understand the concepts of composition, as well as color scheme and how they effect the feel of an image. This also gives me a strong understanding of light and how it behaves and effects an image.

I can instruct artistically on landscapes, portrait, portfolio themes, journalistic, as well as the functions of a common DSLR cameras.
