About John

I am a passionate, versatile senior information technology manager with 15+ years of experience in all aspects of systems application development using Microsoft tools and technologies. Specifically, I have used Visual Basic as my choice of programming language and I believe it is a clean and simple language for beginning programmers to learn the fundamental concepts of programming languages in general and in the use of "visual" tools to design applications quickly and efficiently. Since 2008, I have brought that passion into the classroom when I teach and will bring that same passion when interacting with students one on one.

I have been teaching a Microsoft Office course since 2008 and have been using Microsoft Office applications since the early 1990s. When teaching I always dig deeper into the tools to give my students a sense of the vast capabilities available in these applications in an attempt to whet their appetites for learning more. And I always provide them with other resources beyond the textbook for learning more. I will take the same approach with my tutoring students.

I am a certified Microsoft Office Specialist.

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 have been teaching Microsoft Office classes, including Access, since 2008. I originally learned how to program by using Microsoft Access. I have been a user of Microsoft Office since the mid 1990s.

Microsoft Excel

I am a part-time instructor at Morton College, teaching Visual Basic programming. I'd be more than happy to teach you the programming curriculum if you are interested in the Visual Basic programming language. I can teach you the fundamentals of programming and well as concepts in visual user interface design.

I am a software developer programming in Visual Basic since 1999. I teach a Visual Basic class at a college in Cicero. I have been programming in Visual Basic .NET since 2003.
