One of the things I've enjoyed doing over the years is exploring and learning new things. For me, a major part of that is helping others gain a better understanding and knowledge of subjects that interest them (or that they need for work or school…). I've been in the IT field for over 13 years and have spent a good portion of that time training fellow systems experts, first-time users of all ages who haven’t ever used a mouse or keyboard before, and people from all the skill levels in-between. This experience, along with my interest in the field of Psychology
, has helped me to become a better instructor and I've been repeatedly told I “have the patience of Job” when working with students.
I have no problem helping those I tutor grasp the entirety of the concepts we’re working on, regardless of how long it might take, and I firmly believe in the idea that there are no dumb questions. I’ll do my best to find ways to help motivate my students, as I want to ensure that they successfully gain the knowledge they’re looking for. I don’t talk down to students, whatever their age or skill level in a given topic, and if I don’t know the answer to a given question, I’ll do my best to find it for you.
Learning is something I've been interested in my entire life, and I enjoying learning about a wide range of topics, including psychology, business
, and more. My formal education includes a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Computer
Information Systems, and a Master's of Science
degree in Cybersecurity. I also hold several technical qualifications from Microsoft and CompTIA, including the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer and the CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ certifications. I also worked overseas as a contractor for the Department of Defense for several years, and enjoyed working with both foreign nationals and the children of other DoD employees on their English
, computer, and other skills.
