United States Navy Electronics Technician
I worked for the US Navy for 4+ years in a high octane fast paced real world environment. In that time I was a tutor and mentor to my junior sailors helping them in a wide range of areas, electronic theory, understanding and reading curt based schematics, troubleshooting live and simulated faults, general preventative maintenance and corrective maintenance down to the component level. I live and breathe electronics and the teaching of others about them.
I do not have any degrees (not yet, still in progress), however I am versed in many mediums. From vacuum tubes to solid state, and magnetrons to klystrons, Radios to radars. Nothing is more magical than the current age of technology. I prefer an open teaching method, meaning I will find a way to make even the math (not my favorite part, but necessary) exciting at the least.
I have 4+ years of on-the-job experience, am a Navy-certified electronics' technician, Link/CDLMS/UNIX Technician/Administrator, Srq-4 radio set technician, and US Navy certified EHF SATCOM Technician. I am US Navy certified in quality assurance.
I have been using computers my entire life both in my career endeavors and personal life. Well versed in most Operating systems current and old. I have beta tested for numerous companies, including Microsoft and Sony.
I have the knowledge, all you need is the want of learning. I am very flexible with schedule for now and always looking to enlighten. If you like a very casual learning environment where questions are encouraged. I know I can help. Even if you just need someone to break down all the pros and cons of a system (electronic device) or program (software). Young and Old alike it makes no difference, I will teach for the sake of knowledge itself. I worked for the US Navy for 4+ years in a high octane fast paced real world environment.

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.
I am a more than four-year Navy Veteran 3rd Class Petty Officer Electronics Technician. I am familiar with the ASVAB.
I can type 93 wpm dictating and 100+ feestyle.
I have used windows based OS's for the majority of my life. I have taken part in the Microsoft beta testers program for the last 11 years and most of my knowledge is self taught. I instructed several self-improvement shops for people looking to understand a more in depth concept of bow the operating system works and people who have fallen out of sorts with the basic functions of applications and system maintenance.
I have run my own private network for many years 20+. I am also a certified LINK technician for the NAVY, LINK is the networking system that interfaces with multiple OS's (in different language bases i.e. UNIX, WINDOWS, LINUX, VXWORKS...) for all data and communication transfers within a battle group and fleet. I was given a letter of accomplishment from a Pacific Fleet Admiral for my work and was the only technician for LINK for 3+ years aboard the USS Port Royal CG73.
