Bio

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.

Very knowledgable

He helped me create a smart excel spreadsheet for my Employees! Great job. He was very patient and had a depth Of knowledge. He was attentive to my needs and he definitely made me feel like an dump person - truly my computer skills are pathetic.

Great teacher!

John D was very helpful with my understanding of Visual Basic programming language. He navigated me through the first few lessons but after he saw I started to get the hang of the concepts he would only help me when needed. Will definitely be using his service again in the future!

Subject Matter Expert in Microsoft Access

John has developed a wealth of knowledge in Access over his career and it shows when he teaches and/or reviews your work. He pays attention to all aspects of the design and implements a working database with details that makes it functional. I was so fortunate to have ran into his profile to get help on a college class that I was taking. He helped me learn the bits and pieces of Access that makes it work. I'm 100% satisfied with the work we completed together and would definitely collaborate again. Thank you, John!

Very knowledgeable

John is a very experienced and educated person and he did teach me everything I asked for in Excel. Covered topics such as pivot table and vlook up.

Miro, 1 lesson with John

Knowledgeable and practical professional.

We went thru analysis of an Orders management application to be able to entry, filter and obtain data for decision making. John was quick to understand my needs and help fixing problems. His recommendations were very practical and useful. Thanks,

Maria, 1 lesson with John

Made it all so much clearer

I learned more in this one session than I had the whole first semester! Not only did he explain it but also showed examples to make it all just kinda click. I even had him look at a previous lab and it took 2 seconds for him to point out exactly what I did wrong and explained how to fix it and why. I will definitely reach out to John the next time I feel lost.

Patient Tutor and knows Visual Basic Language

OMG! Instructor John is the best. He helped me understand the concepts I was getting confused on and provided me examples to be sure I was getting it. God bless him. I wish he was my teacher. I will come back again and reach out to him for help.
