About Michael

I worked for over 32 years as a Computer Specialist and Project Manger with the US Government. During this time I wrote and developed many software applications specific to our business needs. Most were in the realm of real time control application software. As a Division Manager I also wrote many technical specifications for software contract procurements. I am very proficient in most Microsoft Office Tools.

In my career I have hired, trained and developed many new employees. Some of these started out as part time college students. At times I had as many as three college students working for me in my division. As their direct supervisor I was responsible for assigning and managing their work assignments. When needed I would provide the necessary guidance, training and mentoring to insure that they could successfully complete their assignments. Many of these students eventually took full time positions within my division and still work there today.

During my career I have worked with many different computer systems and programming languages. I've worked with C, Pascal, Visual Basic and PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) Ladder Logic programming languages. I have also worked with several scripting languages specific to some of our software packages.

As a recent retiree, I have a lot schedule flexibility during the day for tutoring. I'm am still very much involved with computers and would love to assist you in your computer related studies. Please contact me if it sounds like I might be of assistance. I can assure you that if your needs do not match up with my experience I will not accept your work.

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.

Computer Programming

I have many years of computer programming experience. I have coded applications using C, Pascal, Visual Basic and many other application specific scripting languages. My most recent programming experience was with Visual Basic 2010 and PLC Ladder Logic. Real time process control has been the primary focus of most of my professional career.

Computer Science

I have broad experience in computer science at both the hardware and software level. My most recent full time position was to analyze new technology and to assess its possible use on our real time computer control system.

Visual Basic

During 2012 thru 2014 I worked as a Retired Annuitant for my previous employer. I was responsible for rewriting several real time software programs. These programs included an Automatic Generation Control program used for allocating 2000 Megawatts of Hydro Power Generation, Water Power Monitoring software used to calculate and track water releases from dams and water release structures and a System Health Monitor used to monitor the health and integrity of SCADA software applications and several smaller utility applications. Although I have experience in several programming languages, this most recent work has been with Visual Basic 2010.
