About Martin

I have been in the computer field for many years and whenever I have needed to teach someone I have been rewarded with comments that I made it easy to understand concepts that they thought were going to be insurmountable. Many of my courses have been video taped and made available through the public library
systems.

It makes me feel great to know that I have passed down the knowledge once given to me by sitting in many classes many years ago. Where possible I have spoken with my teachers (many now retired) to let them know it was well worth their time and effort. Someday I hope someone comes up to me with the same ideas and kind words.

I was never any good at learning different spoken languages, but once I started learning different computer languages I just soaked up the information. I think its because all languages have many things in common. Its just learning whats needed in each to accomplish some procedure be it adding numbers or making decisions. I see the same thing in different operating systems. They all accomplish the same thing, just do it in different ways.

Please give me a call and we can discuss your needs. I can teach from the basic beginning all the way through to advanced concepts. You might also need help in areas I usually don't teach but ask me anyways. My father
taught me to always go ahead and ask. The worst that can happen is I don't know the answer. You're no worse off than before you asked!

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 learned the C language by myself by reading thru
code listings of all applications in V7 unix. Later
I perfected my coding by reading thru the well
known book Kernigan and Richie (Spelling). I also
learned all the ins and outs of the linux OS by reading
every line of code in the V7 unix kernel. I have also
written code in C while working on government
projects over the past 30 years.

Computer Programming

This subject can have many meanings. In teaching
this subject there is no one language taught. I teach
the concepts to determine what needs to be done
and how to accomplish that. It can be anything
from writing Shell scripts that call upon other apps
like awk, lex, yacc, sed, perl, python, and many others.
I also include OS concepts such as system events,
system startup scripts, and the cron program.

Linux

I have been using Linux since it was first released. I know the complete Linux kernel, and how its
used on many variants of Unix including Cygwin, RedHat, RHEL, RtLinux, Ubuntu, Debian, SunOS, Netbsd, BSDI, Ultrix and many others.

I have taught beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes on how to use Linux for the beginner, and how to use the hundreds of available applications for the advanced developer.

Microsoft Windows

I teach beginners enough so that they are more confident on using Microsoft Windows (all versions)
to read and send email, cut and paste operations, storing pictures and movies from their cameras
and how to attach them to emails for sending to others. How to use MS paint, calculator, notepad,
wordpad. How to connect printers via USB and via Ethernet, and how to send to them.

For those more advanced I can teach MS Word, MS Excel, and MS Access. For the very advanced, I can teach how to add programs to Excel Spreadsheet cells.

Visual Basic

I've been using VB ver 4.0, 5.0 & 6.0 since they were released by Microsoft. I have released many VB6 apps to the net, and have taught VB6 to high school students and evenings in a local adult education program.
