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.

Bible Studies

I have been a student of the Bible for many years. My preference is the New Testament as I am a practicing Christian, but I can teach OT as well. I have written a series of sermons on Paul's missionary trips and I enjoy teaching about his life. I especially enjoy teaching little known factoids, for example, that Luke joined Paul's entourage at Troas on the second missionary journey. Luke is not specifically named so you have to find the inference by carefully reading the Bible. I also like to teach the strength of various versions of the Bible, and the difference between a translation and a transliteration.


I formerly worked for IBM as a Program Systems Rep and as a Systems engineer. Both jobs required that I know COBOL. I am familiar with the Divisions that govern the layout of all COBOL programs. I can generally recognize at once if a student has the specifications in the incorrect Division. I have recently given advice to a person who debugs COBOL programs for a major retailer.

Computer Programming

I have been a programmer for many years starting at IBM when I repaired programs or helped Users who were using programs incorrectly. My primary experience has been with assembler, COBOL, Pl1, RPG, and RPGII, and I have written programs in machine level code. I would teach that the most important element of programming is to use the inner logic of the compiler to your advantage. You must also make sure that the logic of your program is an exact representation of your intention in writing the program.


My first personal computer was a COMPAQ portable (luggable - it weighed 34 lbs.) and the operating system was PC-DOS. The COMPAQ was an IBM compatible model so it used the IBM Version of DOS, not the MS SOS version. There were over a dozen different variations on DOS, but PC and MS were the most prolific and popular. In those days, all you had to interface with your computer was DOS, so you had to understand a lot more about the physical characteristics of the system than you need to know today. DOS commands are specific to the device you are trying to control, and the command parameters are usually positional. That is you have to understand all the options you can specify in a command and you have to put commas in place where you do not want to use a particular option of a command. There are no logical commands. Everything is physical. I can't imagine why someone would want to learn DOS; but if they do, I can teach it.


I've always been a student of English, and I love the language. When I worked for IBM I was required to write essays on the advantages of using our products and essays on how to use programs I wrote.

Microsoft Publisher

When my sons were in school, my wife and I used Publisher to put together books that we then bound for elementary students who wrote stories so they could experience the joy of being "published." The most important concept to teach about Publisher is that you cannot just add a page. Pages are added in multiples of four to satisfy the pagination requirements of the program. As long as the student understands the fundamental purpose of Publisher, to publish a book or booklet, they will be able to use it properly. If they want to publish a flyer, they should use Word. I also have been a programmer for many years.


I have decades of speaking English almost flawlessly. My goal in proofreading is to make sure that all spelling is correct, that you use tenses properly, and that you don't have run-on sentences.

Public Speaking

I have never been timid about speaking or praying in public. I took a course in Public Speaking in college that improved my abilities. I prepare and deliver addresses for my fraternity. I am also called upon to occasionally fill the pulpit for my ordained friends when they want to hear my slant on certain subjects, eg. a series of six sermons on Paul's three missionary trips, the third of which was never completed. I have preached sermons and, at times, conducted the entire service.
