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 in Excel.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

C#

I have been programming in Visual Basic for over 15 years and teach a college-level course as well. It is not difficult to "translate" Visual Basic to C# and I have actually tutored a few students in C# already.

Microsoft Access

I have a great deal of experience working with database design in general and with Microsoft Access in particular. I originally learned how to program by using Microsoft Access and have been teaching Microsoft Office classes, including Access, since 2008.

Microsoft Excel

I have been using various versions of Microsoft Office for 25 years. I also instruct a college course that has a heavy emphasis on Office and have been doing so since 2008. In 2016, I earned the Microsoft Office Specialist certification in Excel.

Visual Basic

I am a software developer programming in Visual Basic since 1999. I also teach a Visual Basic programming class at a community college.
