Disclaimer: For each of you who have decided to review my profile, I thank you very much in advance for taking the time to do so!

Out of respect to you for reviewing my profile, however, I must advise that I DO NOT provide tutoring for specific, single or multiple applications, programs, class assignments, class projects, nor do I accept one-time tutoring session requests.

All of my prospective students are individuals currently preparing for their CompTIA A+, Network+, Server+, Security +, Cisco's CCNA, (ISC)2's SSCP certifications and require extra tutoring/guidance to ultimately pass their specific exam. Sessions tend to be recurring as a result.

Therefore, if you are not seeking exam prep tutoring for any of the aforementioned IT disciplines, it will not be necessary for you to submit a request for tutoring with me. I wish you nothing but good fortune, in finding the right tutor, to match your IT learning needs.

Thank you!

Warmest Regards,
Terry W.

My experience, knowledge and hands-on expertise with the planning, installation configuration and troubleshooting of Ethernet and wireless networks has been an integral part of my IT career for over 18+ years. I started as a freelance IT Network Technician however, in 1999, while working for CompUSA, troubleshooting Internet and network connectivity issues for residential consumers. I did not start supporting larger networks, however, until after I graduated with a AS in Information Technology from NTC (Northwestern Technical College), certified as CompTIA A+ , Certified Novell Administrator, and fully trained in MSA/MCSE full networking protocols and certification domains in 2004. Despite not taking the certification exams for the MCSE and LSA (which were paid for already), I have since from 2005 to present day, been working for Apple Inc., and continuing to provide network troubleshooting as a Network & Low Voltage Technician installations and services for residential LAN as well as enterprise-based WAN and WLAN networks.

Incidentally, I've also been awarded free complete courseware to certify for the vendor-neutral CompTIA Net+ and Security + certifications for which I am currently working

Great Guy And Even Better Tutor

Terry is down to earth and wants you to succeed. It's for that reason I will continue to use him to guide me through the CompTIA maze. He had a goodie bag of tools and resources that he shares with you along the way.

Security+ SY0-501

In our first meeting, we talked like old friends. Instant connection. He was able to pick up how I absorb information and provided an action plan on how to tackle this Security+. He’s patient, attentive and excellent communicator. He does a great job eliminating the “fluff” in the textbooks right to the point of understanding. Terry does a wonderful job helping me stay organized and excited to do homework. I’m looking forward to this journey and looking forward to my leaving an updated review after I pass this exam!!!

Nicolette, 18 lessons with Terry

Always great session! Breaks things down to be completely understood while making things incredibly easy to understand. Never had an easier time learning! Always reachable for questions at anytime and responds back in a timely manner. If I could give more than 5 stars I would gladly do so!

CompTIA A+

Terry is amazing! Helped me get back up to speed with my A+ studies! The best IT tutor ever! I look forward to our next session. He is definitely your go-to for earning your A+ certification.

Tee, 2 lessons with Terry

Conscientious, Flexible, and Knowledgeable

Terry is helping shore up my knowledge base to prepare for the Comptia Security+ exam, and has been phenomenal to interact with. He is more than happy to meet students where they are regardless of experience, and puts emphasis on the communicative aspects of tutoring. The wealth of resources and links he provides for extracurricular study are also immensely helpful.
