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.

SQL Nightmare!!!

John was EXCEPTIONAL! Not only was he available without very much notice, he helped when my professor didn't. I have a much better understanding of SQL and my assignments thanks to him.

Darlene, 4 lessons with John

Very knowledgeable and patient!

John was helpful and knowledgeable about the software. He is a good teacher and talked through my questions to help me understand how to use the software. I will continue to work with him to improve my knowledge.

Joan, 3 lessons with John

Programming C# with confidence

We went over a program that I was writing in C#. I thought I was on the wrong track but I was not far from completing the program my self which helped me with my confidence. We also built a console application with a for loop that went from 10 to 100. Very informative and I will be using him again.

Incredibly well prepared and thoughtful tutor

John will go above and beyond expectations as he guides you in acquiring more knowledge of database design and implementation. It's been a pleasure working with John and I'm looking forward to working with him again in the future.

Highly professional. Very similar to collaborating with a remote co-worker. Made sure to understand the scope of the requested work and provided insight into solutions. Responses are always timely and to the point. Provided confidence that my project was on track and solution orientated.

Explains concepts well

John was very helpful at laying the foundation and teaching how to apply the concept. He has a good understanding of visual basics and was able to break it down so I could understand it.
