About Neal

I have lots of experience with computers and tend to find learning new topics easy. I enjoy understanding how things work. Many years ago I taught a few continuing ed computer classes. Though I received positive reviews, I prefer smaller groups or even one-on-one.

Among several troubleshooting and maintenance certifications that I've earned over the years, including Microsoft MCP and MCSE, I have also obtained the Microsoft MVP award for three years in a row. I am a respected member in an online troubleshooting web site for users to obtain help with their computer-related problems, where I currently hold many certifications in several different areas of I/T assistance. In 2009 and 2010, I was one of the foremost points earners on the site and as a result was invited for an all-expense paid trip out to their corporate offices in California. They even paid for my wife to join me and we had a fabulous time celebrating the success of this company.

I've been told that I can break tough topics down into easier understandable components. I've also been told that it shows how much I enjoy what I do. I've been working with computers since I was 14, when I opened up my first computer shortly after receiving it for Christmas, to see how it worked on the inside. After breaking it, I learned what not to do. I've been in the I/T industry for over 20 years now and spend most of my time programming.

In 2012, I began coaching volleyball as an assistant and found a new love of it the following two years when I was head coach for a 12U volleyball team. I've been asked back each year and am continually encouraged by how much the players and their parents enjoy having me as their coach. I have taken the Clifton StrengthFinders and discovered that my results indicate 3 of my top 5 strengths lend towards coaching. I never would have figured that this was something I enjoy as much as I do, but the smiles and (happy) tears after each season continually remind me why I keep coming back.

I really enjoy helping newcomers learn the sport - one I still play when I have time. I wish I could have started many years ago and have a lot of the credentialing that college coaches have by having played through those years, but unfortunately I didn't begin playing until several years after college. I have recently obtained my IMPACT and separate Safe Sport certifications as of January 2016.

As of 2016 high school season, I have moved up to an assistant for our varsity team, and obtained NFHS training as well.

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.

Computer Programming

I can teach some basic logic, but many windows style scripting languages (from dos/batch scripting, to vbscript, to powershell). I have recently taught a 6-week long course on powershell. I have been working with powershell since about 2008 and spend most days in my job coding tools and functions using this language.

Microsoft Outlook

I have worked with Microsoft Outlook since it first originated, including Microsoft Outlook Express/Express Mail/MS Suite mail. I have programmed using internal API methods as well as external Exchange API. I am also an email engineer for the past 2 years at my company, where I have worked for over 20 years in the I/T industry.

Volleyball

I've been playing for more than 15 years and coaching for the past 3 (12U)
