Hello I'm Ricardo and I grew up having a lot of hobbies, my favorites were always chess, computers and art. Today I am an experienced I.T. technician in my career and love to help people with their technology problems, I can teach you the skills I have in multiple areas and give you advise on how to reach whatever goals you have. As a kid I played chess all day with friends and family and learned to be a pretty good chess player, although I can't call myself a master, I have played for the USCF as a tournament player. I have competed with very strong players and have learned valuable tricks and techniques that I have picked up over 20 years of playing the game. In my spare time I love to paint, I have painted for about 10 years in different mediums, mainly oil and acrylic. I have college degrees in Business Administration, Studio Art, Computer Technology and Electronics Engineering, you could say that I love to learn new things, and I'm just as passionate at helping others learn. I can teach you everything I know.

I have over 20 years of technology experience and can help you learn to become a computer technician. Learn the skills that are needed by employers to troubleshoot and repair computers, network them or manage them.

I have been playing chess for over 20 years and have played thousands of games. I am rated about 1700 officially, but have a playing strength over 2000. Learn the mistakes I have made and learn from them, and learn valuable techniques that will help you become a stronger player. Learn that chess is more than a game, it can teach you how to better handle situations in life and become stronger at other interests you might have.

I have been painting for about 10 years but have been drawing since I was a kid. I have worked with different mediums, including pencils, pens, markers, charcoal, pastels, oil paint, acrylic paint, and gouache paint. I have created my own frames and stretched and primed my own canvas. Learn how to create professional looking paintings without getting "muddy". I can teach you how to focus your energy and mind to create art. I have learned techniques to make realistic paintings, and have experience with guiding you to use the correct techniques, hand motions and brushes.

Learn to paint, play chess or how to fix computers. I can teach you the basics or advanced skills. Learning is about dedication and discipline, learn to how focus and you can accomplish a lot.
