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

Business

I worked for a major oil company for many years as a project manager and line manager, managing up to 50 staff and budgets up to $10 million. I am a certified project manager, aka PMP, through the Project Management Institute. I received significant training from my employer in management of business functions and projects. They also sponsored me for a Certificate in Business Management from Houston Baptist University/American Management Association.

Computer Engineering

I have an M.S. in computer science from the University of Houston with a 4.0/4.0 GPA. I have 40 years of experience in this field with Lockheed electronics at the Johnson Space center and Shell Oil Company. Much of that time was spent in software engineering of programs and whole corporate systems, systems development at all levels, and integration of software and various hardware for real-time data acquisition and control. I have held jobs as computer programmer, systems analyst, architect, IT project manager, IT operations manager, and IT program manager. I received significant training within Shell for each of these jobs, and in turn, have trained and mentored many staff while at Shell.

Computer Programming

I have an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Houston. I have many years of experience programming in numerous languages including SAP ABAP, most recently, in which I am certified. I also have experience with Javascript, XML, HTML, Visual and regular Basic, C, FORTRAN, and many Assembly/Machine languages. I have been trained and have experience with object oriented programming as well as structured programming.

Computer Science

I have an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Houston with a 4.0/4.0 GPA. I have 40 years of experience in this field with Lockheed Electronics at the Johnson Space center and Shell Oil Company. I have held jobs as computer programmer, systems analyst, architect, IT project manager, IT operations manager, and IT program manager. I received significant training within Shell for each of these jobs, and in turn, have trained and mentored many staff while at Shell.

Discrete Math

First, I had Point Set theory in my Math degree, which covers one of the many aspects of Discrete Math. As part of my Master's in Computer Science, I had multiple courses related to Discrete Math, making A’s in all of them. One such course was Logic, which I used extensively in my programming career at NASA and Shell, for real-time control systems and complex algorithm development. The other two classes were Automata theory and Pattern Recognition, which I used in my thesis for development of a speech recognition based language compiler.

General Computer

I have an MS in Computer Science and 40 years of experience across all aspects of Computing. This includes real time programming for NASA, being a certified SAP programmer, and working in many technical roles for Shell.

Guitar

I have been playing the guitar for 50 years. I played lead guitar in a rock and roll band during high school. I played with a contemporary Christian group in college. I currently play contemporary Christian music for ministry activities. My best song is Malaguena, a classical masterpiece which took a long time to learn. I can still play folk and rock music including guitar instrumentals like Misrilou and Sleep Walk. I taught my son to play the guitar and he has also been in a successful group.

Logic

I was trained in logic, including a course in formal logic, during my M.S. in Computer Science. As an analyst and programmer, I have been required to develop complex algorithms and programs using this logic, which has been more valuable than the training.
I also have a degree in Mathematics which is a strongly related field.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Outlook for many years in the Shell environment, including advanced features. I believe that my experience would enable me to be an effective teacher. As a leader, I often answered questions and helped junior staff become proficient in this tool.

Microsoft Project

I have been trained in Microsoft Project but more importantly, I have many years of experience using it as a Project Manager. I am also familiar with the SAP Project System internals as well as usage, which gives me extra insight. I have managed projects of all sizes, small and large, up to $10 million using MS Project.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Windows since version 3.1 in the 90s, then Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, and Vista. I have upgraded from one version to another. I have also had formal training and experience as a system programmer on various systems such as HP UNIX, IBM minicomputers, and mainframes. I have written OS level routines and understand how operating systems work.
