About Ian

I'm a professional software engineer and system administrator, who has extensive experience developing applications software using C#, C++, Java, HTML, CSS, SQL, etc. I have extensive experience with Windows, Mac, and Linux/Unix, including CentOS, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, etc. I have experience setting and and administering networks for a variety of companies, as well as ensuring adequate network network security. I have experience with DBMS systems including SQL Server versions 5 - 2016, and Oracle, most recently 11g. I also have experience with MySQL, PostGreSQL, Access, etc.

I also custom build computer systems from the ground up. For example, my main workstation is a liquid cooled Intel hexa-core dual-striped RAID 0 SSD boot drive system I built. It's very fast :).

I have almost 40 years' experience in the field and draw upon my wide breadth of knowledge and experience to provide answers.

I was at the top of my computer classes while in college. In fact, I was the top programmer at Colorado Mesa University in 1993 per a college-wide programming contest.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.


I programmed large scale military helicopter (CH-53 and Airwolf, Bell 222) simulators primarily using C#, as well as C and C++. I also worked on some of the programming for the multi-million dollar MCAT-P simulator housed at Marine Air Corpse Station New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and was also the primary developer in a project for the Navy Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division in Crane, Indiana, which involved extending the functionality of the CH-53 and Airwolf, Bell 222 simulator, transforming it into a Night Vision Goggles trainer.

I programmed a touchpad device application using C# and WPF, running on XP Embedded, which served as the control interface for an Ametek force gauge testing machine.

I programmed a screen scraper to scan craigslist for new real estate postings every five minutes, sending e-mail copies of postings that met certain criteria.

I have over seven years' experience developing applications in C#, including experience with .NET versions 2.0 through most recently 4.6.


I have been programming in C++ since 1992. Also, I have been using some of the new features of C++ 11 for the last couple years, and have been learning additional things about both C++ 11 and C++ 14, keeping my skills current.

Computer Science

I have been programming computers since I was eight years old. I have more than 15 years' professional programming experience. And, I have received my Bachelor of Computer Science degree from Colorado Mesa University. I was a top programmer there in their Computer Science department.

Over and Above the Call of Duty — I was struggling with two programs in Java and one in C++. Ian spent many hours helping me untangle a label issue and connecting to a database. Thank you! OH...and he explained my C++ assignment in a way I could actually understand the material. I can actually get it done now. ...
