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.

General Computer

As a hardware/test engineer and PC technician, I've been working with PCs and Unix workstations and servers for 10+ years. My hands-on and work experience include installing and configuring hardware and software, from adapter cards to hard drives, software packages to operating systems.
My work with computers also includes troubleshooting and diagnostics on occasion.

HTML

Through volunteer work dating back at least 4 years, my knowledge of HTML has been helpful in maintaining and managing content on a few web sites for organizations that I belong to.
I taught myself the HTML basics through online tutorials and by using Bluefish, an HTML editor to create and edit web pages.
You can see an example of my handiwork by visiting my own web site which I created at: http://customlinux.tripod.com/
