I am an Industrial Engineer, have an MS in Management Science and many year's experience as a Management Consultant. Since retiring, my objective has been to teach the use of computers at all levels. I am bilingual and can teach in English and Spanish. Because computers are a vast subject I will talk with you about your particular needs to define the content of your tutoring. Beginners can start learning Windows and its applications; advanced students can discover the use of Microsoft Office to address management issues. My teaching is based on Windows 7 and 8.1, and Microsoft Office 2010 and 2013.
If you are a beginner learning Windows applications will meet most of your personal needs. Find information in the internet on subjects of your interest like news, health, sports, history, technical questions, buying things; help you to communicate writing emails and letters; check your spelling; connect to other devices such as phones and cameras; store and organize pictures which can be edited and included in documents and emails; tell your computer to read text aloud; record your voice; play chess; write reminders and make arithmetic calculations. And many other useful things.
At a professional level I can teach Microsoft Office. Excel to organize and analyze data, make simple or complex calculations, build Pivot Table reports; Word to write comprehensive reports with table of contents, tables, charts and references; Access to download, store and analyze large volumes of data; Power Point to make personal slide presentations to interact with an audience, or self-run slide shows ideal for marketing. Macros in VBA to automate your applications. You will learn how to exchange information between all the previous applications.
We can meet at an agreed time and location in a radius of 15 miles from Zip code 33460. I am available during the day and evenings. I can travel to your location; meet at a local library or some other public place. Rescheduling sessions require a 12 hour prior notice.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Houston in 1961 and a Master of Management Science from Stevens Institute of Technology in 1966.
My experience includes the following: teaching adults computers at Palm Beach Community Schools; Independent Management Consultant; Booz. Allen and Hamilton partner, Latin America; Systems Manager for Colgate Palmolive, Venezuela; Operations Research Analyst at Western Electric Corporation, Kearny, New jersey; Industrial Engineer at Lily Tulip Cup Corporation, Holmdel, New jersey.

I had a couple sessions on Microsoft Access with Jorge. Now I'm more confident going into my interview on Monday which requires some level of understanding of Access.
Jorge is an expert at Microsoft Access and Excel. I highly recommend him. You will learn a lot. You won't be disappointed.
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 can teach computers for personal use. With a few strokes Windows and its applications can help you find information in the internet on subjects of your interest like health, meaning of words, food recipes, historical facts, daily news, items for sale and so on; help you to communicate writing emails and letters; check your spelling; connect to other devices such as phones and cameras; store and organize pictures which can be edited and included in documents and emails; tell your computer to read text aloud, record your voice and play chess; write reminders and make arithmetic calculations. In addition, many other useful things.
At a professional level, I can teach MS Office applications. Excel to organize and analyze data, make simple or complex calculations, build Pivot Table reports; Word to write comprehensive reports with table of contents, tables, charts and references; SQL server and Access to download, store and analyze large volumes of data; Power Point to make personal slide presentations to interact with an audience, or self-run slide shows ideal for marketing; Macros and Vba to write your own applications. Based on my business experience I will show you how to apply these tools to actual management issues related to the supply chain, sales, cost and finance.
Access is a tool to create and update a database. To use Access students should learn its basic objects: Tables which contain information about a particular subject; Queries that select and relate information; Forms to input data or instructions; Views which are customize displays of Queries; Reports that include formatted data and calculations for printing; Macros to automate actions such as opening tables or printing reports. To learn all these subjects does not require programming knowledge.
At a more advanced level Visual basic can be used to improve Macros or develop modules to include custom procedures.
There are many reasons to use Access. It stores information very efficiently and it can be used in a single desktop or a network of desktops. Users may have different rights: read and write or read only. Data is immediately available to all users. In later versions of Access the database can be stored in the Web which means that data can be viewed in different locations. Users can view the data even if they don't have Access.
Access can be applied to different situations; as the basis for a given application or to download data from other systems. Integrating Access ability to store large amounts of data with Excel Functions and Pivot Tables creates a powerful analytical tool. A simple but very useful application could be to make a mailing list for word documents.
I have designed and taught how to make Access applications. Among others, I have built a plant maintenance system, and more recently, an application to build queries in Access with data downloaded from SAP for cost and sales analysis.
Excel is a universal tool that can be used in different environments and situations. Whether you need a family budget, calculate statistics, project sales, analyze financial results or just crunch numbers, knowing Excel is a very valuable personal asset. It can be an important step to improve your professional development, advance your career, find a job and better manage your finances.
You will find that personalized teaching is very effective, because it focuses directly on your specific needs, whether you are a beginner or a more experienced student.
Students will learn all aspects of Excel: Cells to store individual data; simple arithmetic calculations; ranges and tables to organize information; functions related to statistics, finance and logical decisions; charts to show data in effective visual ways; pivot tables to easily generate complex reports; macros to automate actions such as opening sheets or modify formats; forms and active X controls to introduce and edit data, and to initiate different actions. None of these actions require knowledge of a programming language.
At a more advanced level, Visual Basic can be used to improve macros or develop modules that include custom procedures.
Excel is a desktop application that allows information to be shared in a network. Recent versions permit information to be shared in the web. A common application is to download data from other systems and use Excel functions and pivot tables to generate reports to be shared in the Web.
For many years I have used Excel, alone or in conjunction with Access to generate information for management reports. I have found it to be a very powerful tool.
Power Point is a tool to make attractive, compelling and easy to understand presentations. Its knowledge will improve your professional career and enhance your resume. And Power Point is easy to learn.
Slides are the basic component of Power Point presentations. They can contain Text Boxes, Tables, Charts, Pictures, Shapes, Clip Art and other Objects. Characteristics such as color, size and location can be adapted to the needs of each slide. In addition objects can be animated to attract attention to specific presentation points, sounds can be added to each slide.
Presentations can be made in person or can be self-run as a slide show.
In the personal presentation the host can select each slide and navigate back and forth to clarify different points, with the active participation of the audience. Comments can be added to the slides as discussion progresses.
The self-run slide show can be showed without a host. It could be a good marketing tool for shows or conferences. Viewers can select subjects of special interest. Another possibility is to send a CD with the self-running Slide Show to a client
Microsoft offers a Viewer so that a presentation can be seen without having the Power Point software.
I have taught Publisher for household and small businesses and always observed that students find it intuitive and easy to learn.
At a household level, there is a need for simple letters, envelopes and greeting cards which Publisher's vast array of templates can support very well. In addition to those documents, small businesses can create mailing lists and use easy to modify templates for brochures, business cards, labels and advertisements among others.
Publisher has all the tools required to deal with text, images and objects. It has a very good review ribbon to check spelling and grammar, and all the means to compose an attractive page.
Publisher is quite adequate for small businesses and personal use. People with no particular skills can use it, which makes them feel creative and independent.
Teaching Windows, the basic structure on which all applications run, is to share with students the world of personal computers and the realization that they are captivating devices that can help us in many ways.
Because Windows is very extensive you may not need to know, at least initially, all its aspects. However, awareness of some simple routines to start and shutdown the computer, or initial screen components (like icons, menus, task bar and notification area) are necessary. Gradually, you will discover how to store, retrieve and find information in libraries and folders; the use of internal storage devices and the SkyDrive; copy, cut and paste objects; use the desktop window; organize icons to facilitate access to the more common applications and documents; create users and passwords; implement security; manage updates; print documents; and share information.
There will be a time when you will want to do other things, like modify your computer settings or explore its software and hardware. Then is when you will study the control panel and see how to make your disk drive faster; back up all your information; delete programs that you don't want; be able to use different languages and keyboards; choose internet options; use your voice to initiate computer actions; hear your computer talk and narrate documents.
I have used previous versions of Windows. Now I use Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
Word is a personal, professional and business writing tool. With Word you can create letters, greeting cards or extensive reports that are attractive and easy to understand.
Word has many tools to format, edit and organize text; include tables, pictures, shape, charts and references; check your spelling and grammar; provide synonyms and explain the meaning of words; automatically number pages and make a table of contents; make headers and footers; translate documents; read documents aloud and accept voice instructions. You can write Macros to automate simple actions. Word documents can be attached to emails.
Because Word offers so many possibilities personalized direct teaching, focusing on your particular needs, is very effective whether you are a beginner or a more experienced student.
Word reports can include tables and charts developed with Excel or Access. Word documents stored in the SkyDrive can be jointly developed by users in different locations and can be read by users that do not have Word.
At a more advanced level Visual Basic can be used to improve Word Macros or develop Modules that include custom procedures.
For many years I have used Word in its many versions to write management reports. I have found it to be a compelling means to describe situations, document findings and present recommendations.
