About Michael

I value the opportunity to coach and transfer my knowledge to people of all levels. I have a passion for the computer industry and absolutely take pleasure in sharing my experience with others. I have a Master’s Degree in Information Technology (IT) along with 15+ years of computer experience. In addition, I am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and also have a Linux+ certification. What's more, I have MAC OS X experience and am not partial towards any operating system. I have spent the past decade educating and training people of all ages on various subjects related to IT and miscellaneous software applications. I relish the opportunity to not only train individuals on various topics but also how to apply them to their everyday lives. People that know me describe me as extraordinarily patient, intelligent, virtuous, reliable, and an excellent teacher. My teaching style is very adaptable depending upon the student’s needs but I stress repetition in order for subject matter to become functional. In my spare time I like watching and playing sports along with continuing to refine my chess skills. I value the opportunity to coach and transfer my knowledge to people of all levels.

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.

Chess

I spent a great deal of time when I was younger playing chess. I was on the Chess Team in junior high through high school and participated in many tournaments. I continually placed no lower than 2nd on all tournaments I enrolled in. I continued practicing outside of high school and played computer chess over the years. I have taught a handful of people on how to play chess and offer good insight on strategies.

General Computer

I have over 15 years of computer experience ranging from building, troubleshooting, installing, and using various computer hardware and software. I have a Master's Degree in Information Technology which has helped me to understand and utilize how my computer skills and knowledge are implemented in businesses today. I also hold several certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer and Linux+. I have troubleshooted computer hardware and software and never walk away from a challenge. I feel there is always a solution...it just needs to be uncovered. I have excellent personable skills to go along with my transfer of knowledge in the computer industry and enjoy doing it.

Microsoft Windows

I work with Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012, and also the clients XP, Vista, 7, and 8 on a daily basis. I currently hold the following certifications - MCSE, MCSA, MCP. I am proficient with both the Administration and Implementation of Windows environments and have over 13 years of experience.

Networking (Computer)

I have extensive knowledge in computer networking as my primary job with Canon USA involves troubleshooting and implementing Enterprise networks. I have a Master's Degree in Information Technology which allows me to understand the logistics of businesses and the infrastructures they incorporate. I also am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and have a Linux+ Certification. These certifications have provided extremely rich knowledge in understanding computer networks and the hardware/software that makes networks function. I thoroughly enjoy learning more about computer networks and relish the opportunity to transfer this knowledge to others.
