About Scott

My name is Scott and I have been a tutor for over 10 years now, with dozens of students, and I am thrilled to say all were successful with our lessons.

I am excellent in Mathematics, and especially well versed in Geometry. I also have many other subjects under my own personal umbrella; Writing, English, History, SAT and GED Prep in addition to some serious computer skills.

It is a wonderful thing to see someone struggling with a problem light up with a smile when you show them the tools to simplify the process.

I have two BS Degrees in Business and Management and a Masters in Organizational Management. I love to instruct and have been doing so privately for over ten years on a variety of subjects: Computers, computer programs, Refereeing and Umpiring. I would very much like to understand your needs and my schedule is flexible allowing me to cater to your schedule. We can do this over the computer or we can do it in person, that is your choice.

I consider myself not only an expert in the use of Microsoft Excel, but also a teacher that can relate to all students. I have been using Excel for 20 years and have some very sophisticated spreadsheets that allow me to track international supply lines for materials coming from China to the US. There are so many things one can do with Excel. For example, with this international supply line, we are placing and shipping order 6 months ahead of time and are expected to have sufficient inventory on hand at all times. With a supply line that long it is not a question of if something is going to go wrong but when it is going to go wrong. What I essentially did was to turn every necessary decision into a formula based upon the on hand inventory as well as what was on the water in order to track every execution to allow up to know if we were good or in danger of falling behind on a problem. Yes, it's all very nerdy, but that's what I do.

I hope that we can work on your project together soon.

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.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook as my primary email program for over 15 years. I have used other platforms as well but i prefer Outlook as it seems to capture all of the functionality that I need. Outlook seems effortless to me in transitioning from its different programs. Email, a calendar, calendar alerts, contacts, everything within the program has been seamless for me. I have used Gmail as well as another Google offering in Mozilla Thunderbird and I find them more cumbersome. I think that the Outlook has done the best job of integrating these productivity components together. It is my opinion that instead of trying to differentiate themselves from Outlook, they would do us all a favor and make their systems more like Outlook.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using the Microsoft Operating System for over fifteen years. I am extremely familiar the Microsoft Suite of Office Products as well; Word, Excel, Power Point, Outlook - all of the basic programs.

I have mastered the use of each of the Windows Operating Systems, with the exception of Windows 8. From the reviews that I have read, it seems like the operating system is the first by Windows that missed the mark. The reviews I have read have indicated that it is the first counter-intuitive of the Windows systems. For that reason primarily I am planning to skip Windows 8 at this time and wait for the next version. However, it may become necessary to jump into it if my students require it so nothing is guaranteed at this point.

I have made the transitions from the other operating systems just fine, Windows, Windows XP (My personal favorite) Windows Vista, Windows 7.

Microsoft Word

Word, as part of the Microsoft Office Suite has been my primary word processor for 15 years. I have tried some other word processing programs, most recently with Google Docs in the cloud and they are okay as well. However, I find again that Word is a seamless word processor and it functions very well, seamlessly in fact, as Outlook's word processor. I also might be a bit of an old man in this regard. Why would someone want to invest in another word processor program when we already have one that does the job well? Certainly there is versatility in knowing different programs, but how do you improve on the "gold standard" in word processing programs? I don’t want to nor need to find another program; it is really a matter of continuing to learn all of the incredible features already available in it like form letters and macros. Again, let's not reinvent something that is almost perfect.
