DeVry University (Computer Science)
I consider myself to be a natural tutor. I love to learn new things and am constantly sharing what I learn with others. I have a passion for math and computer programming and have been a programmer for over 20 years. When I was a kid I bought myself my first computer and played around with it until I learned all about basic programming. I continued to learn about computers mostly through self-teaching because I was always so inquisitive. I landed my first programming position at age 23 where I served as the entire IT department for a small business. I've worked for companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Dearborn National and Washington Mutual Bank. I currently work as a Programmer for IAAI. Many people have asked where I've done my formal training and are surprised to hear that I do not have a formal degree. Twenty years of non-stop computer programming has been my education and I never find myself without a job.
I began tutoring in 1989 when I took some college courses at Olive Harvey and Chicago State University. I've tutored in various topics such as Mathematics, Computer Programming, Programming Logic, C, C#, Java and the list goes on. I currently tutor some DeVry and DePaul University graduate students. I like to learn how others learn and show them a different perspective on how to learn information. I consider myself to be flexible and can adapt to others' learning abilities so that they can get the maximum benefit from a tutoring session. I like to teach others how to take in information and apply it to real working situations and not just memorize information long enough to pass a test. My when tutoring others, no matter the person is always the same; teach them so that they will not need to depend on me, teach them so that they will master their course.

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 have been a software developer for over 15 years. I have worked with Microsoft products (Excel, Word, Access, PowerPoint, etc.) for over 18 years. I have been programming in Visual Basic and VBA to automate things inside of Excel and Access to make my work easier. I love using Access and Excel as data manipulators to gather information and then fix the data so that it is useful to me.
I have over 15 years of experience with Microsoft office and other software packages.
I have 20 years of SQL work.
