About Daniel

I'm a Colombian computer scientist. Spanish is my mother tongue, but I've been learning English since I was 16 years old; I went to English classes at Centro Colombo Americano in Bogota, Colombia. I've been living in Birmingham AL for two years.

I work as a development team leader in Birmingham Alabama, for a bank. We develop Java applications and we have a multicultural team; we speak English most of the time, but I also speak Spanish with Spanish and Latinamerican coleagues.

I'm very good at designing web applications, database models and I'm also good at SQL and Oracle PL/SQL. At work I review a lot of Java code and I'm familiar with it although it's not my strongest skill and I'm planning to get a certification soon.

I've been using Microsoft Excel since 1995. I can teach you all the basics, explain the menus, formulas, how to use charts, how to create and configure pivot tables.

I have 10 years of experience in SQL and Oracle development using PL/SQL. I can teach you how to install the database, create schemas/users, create objects, alter objects, grant privileges, query/insert/update/delete information, create scripts, write query results to a file, create functions, procedures, develop using PL/SQL, and so on.

In order to get started, we can schedule a free initial meeting to know each other, identify your current level of knowledge about the subject and determine the topics that we'll cover in future classes, in case you want to continue.

I consider that theory and practice are equally important. I like using computers and digital material to help during the learning process. We'll advance through the different chapters understanding the theory, reviewing examples and practicing; in the time between classes I'd like if you can take some time to test your knowledge about the previous class and we can save some time at the beginning of the next class to solve any questions.

Since my mother tongue is Spanish, I feel confident about teaching Spanish to kids or adults. I like being helpful and I enjoy sharing my knowledge. I lived in Bogota, Colombia for 33 years. In the past 2 years, in Birmingham AL, I've been meeting people from different Spanish speaking countries and I can tell you about differences between accents and words. I like sharing my knowledge; I'll prepare special classes for you, according to your specific needs.

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.

Oracle

I have 10 years of experience in SQL and Oracle development using PL/SQL. Originally I started as a developer and I learnt about Oracle Application Express (previously called Oracle Html DB); I got familiar with object administration and SQL in general. I had to do a lot of research everyday and I got familiar with PL/SQL development inside Oracle Apex. Then I became business partner and I learnt about database design, query optimization, application design in general. I can teach you how to install a database, create schemas/users, create objects, alter objects, grant privileges, query/insert/update/delete information, create scripts, write query results to a file, create functions, procedures, develop using PL/SQL, and so on. Also I can teach you about database design and query optimization.

Spanish

Spanish is my mother tongue. I like preparing the material before every class and adapt it to my students needs. We can work on syntax, pronunciation, listening, vocabulary, reading, writing... anything you need.

SQL

More than 10 years of experience with Sql and Oracle PL/SQL development. From E/R design, to queries and procedures. I can help you understand the concepts and also go through some examples.

Very Knowledgeable, a great tutor

Daniel taught me Oracle SQL and PL/SQL. I was having a hard time grasping some of the concepts but he was able to explain how everything worked and went over some example. I feel more confident learning the material and will definitely book another lesson with him in the future.
