About Howard

I've been involved with computers since the 1960s when personal computers started to become popular. Over time I learned enough to help other people and eventually went to a formal school, graduating with distinctive honors. After graduation I was approached to teach adults in a rival school. It was through that school I received certification to teach computers in NJ. Professionally I became an IT person for a large international corporation for over 17 years. This introduced me to computers in a network, network switches, servers and multiple software platforms such as the Microsoft Office Suite.

What makes me a great choice is the fact that I have an extreme amount of patience and speak in words the you understand. The computer "buzz" words will be explained so you understand what everything means. I get along well with people and respect everyone's opinion even if I don't agree. Helping people just seems to be in my nature.

Computers are logical. Once you know the basic premise it makes things easy to figure out. Nobody knows everything, including me, but knowing what question to ask can make a huge difference. There's no such thing as a stupid question so let's get started.

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.

Microsoft Access

I provided desktop, server and network support as the site contact for 17 years in a major international corporation. Many of our database programs used throughout the plant were created in Access. I maintained some of the databases, helped others to learn how to input data and created some databases during my time working. I also successfully completed 2 courses in Access.

Microsoft Outlook

I provided desktop, server and network support as the site contact for 17 years in a major international corporation. Part of my job was to configure the email accounts and to troubleshoot any issues for all site personnel on site. We used Microsoft Exchange Server as our email client. As we changed operating systems over the years the email accounts would need to be imported and upgraded to each new system.

Microsoft Publisher

I became familiar with Publisher when I was asked to create a local website. I also used publisher to create flyers and notices as well as helped others to use the program.

Microsoft Windows

I provided desktop, server and network support as the site contact for 17 years in a major international corporation. Our operating systems were Windows NT, Windows XP and Windows 7. There were minimally a few computers also using Windows Vista. I helped users navigate and perform various tasks, performed upgrades and installed applications. At times measures needed to be taken to recover lost data due to hard drive crashes.

Networking (Computer)

I provided desktop, server and network support as the site contact for 17 years in a major international corporation.
