About Alvaro

Hello Prospective Student,

I am current DoD Program Manager and I have been working in Program Management for the past 12 years. Previous to that I had worked in Bio-Pharmaceutical manufacturing and production. I currently hold a Masters of Science in Engineering Management, a Level III Program Management DoD Certification, and a Bachelors in Computer Engineering Minor in Computer Science Degree. During my tenure, I have provided oversight and management of several DoD programs ranging from $114 Million to $ 6 Billion and schedules lasting from 2 yrs to 5 yrs. My experience spans all phases of major development acquisition programs and I have developed specific metrics and analysis techniques to mitigate Cost/Schedule/Technical Performance risks. Beyond Program Management, I have performed Earned Value Management System Surveillance audits and have experience in Risk Management, Configuration Management, Software Engineering, AS9100 Auditing, and Supply Chain Management.

On a personal level, I have managed my own $55K home construction project finishing 1 month ahead of schedule and on budget.

I have programmed and managed small projects in C, C++, and JAVA. I'm also proficient with all Microsoft Office products especially, Access, Excel, Powerpoint, Visio and Project. In my job, I have taught various Software Professionals how to perform cost estimation utilizing a parametric estimating tool called SEER-SEM. I have also taught individuals how to perform detailed cost analysis and have written white papers on cost benefit analysis. I am well versed in providing detailed presentations, writing reports, synthesizing key message to key stakeholders, and experienced in interpersonal communications. From my earlier Biomedical experience, I have experience in Healthcare manufacturing and production.

As a tutor, I would like to work with you to establish goals you would like to achieve. We can work together to emphasize the area(s) of help you need. If you know exactly what you need help in, please let me know up front.

I'm available to tutor on week nights, weekends, and select Fridays. I look forward from hearing from you soon. Thanks!

Al
