About Michael

For success in school or in business, you must be able to comprehend the importance of what is being presented to you and respond effectively. Listening well is always the best first step, and it's the first thing that I will do to discover what you need to succeed in whatever challenge you face.

I can work with you to improve your classroom and reading comprehension, test taking skills, and ability to organize and present reports. Trained as an instructor in the US Navy, I have worked with many young people to achieve their goals in the classroom, and specialized in providing the extra study required to master difficult subjects. Taking good notes - in class, in meetings, and while doing research - is a skill that will last a lifetime.

Then, I can show you how to better use the tools available to create effective reports, proposals and presentations.

Well, I guess that's all there is to say for now because it's not about me... how can I help _you_?

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.

JavaScript

With over 15 years experience writing Javascript, I actively work with today's web libraries including JQuery, Dojo, and Mootools, integrating them with HTML5 and CSS3 based web designs.

In addition, I am also currently working with node.js to provide javascript based server-side scripting and services.

I can provide both a general foundation, and resources for accomplishing specific programming goals.

Microsoft Windows

As a network and systems administrator I have supported thousands of people using all versions of Microsoft Windows, and have deep experience using it myself.

Microsoft Word

As a network and systems administrator I have supported hundreds of people using Microsoft Office products, and have a deep experience using them myself.

Networking (Computer)

I have worked in Information Technology as a systems administrator and manager for many years, and have hired and trained many people for desktop support, server administration, and network configuration and management.

If you are pursuing certification, I can provide training, mentoring, and guidance from a hiring manager's point of view.

PHP

I have used PHP extensively in web application development - to create websites, content management systems, shopping carts, and social media sites.

I am experienced in theming and developing with Wordpress, Drupal, Magento, and BigCommerce, and application frameworks like CodeIgniter and Cake.

Python

Python is my scripting language of choice. I have direct experience using it as for systems management scripts, utility applications, for web development (Django), and for data applications.
