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.

Computer Programming

I have over 16 years programming experience when counting both my academic and professional careers. I programmed in C, C++, Visual Basic, Java, Groovy, J2EE, Ruby. I also have major shell scripting experience as well as PL/SQL and several query languages.
Throughout the years I have designed and developed a plethora of applications ranging from small utility apps to space systems and huge web based applications and I have used several different languages for each project I worked on.

Computer Science

I hold a Master's degree in computer science from Villanova University. I am knowledgeable in almost all topics of computer science, starting with computer architecture and algorithms and spanning to the theory of programming languages and databases. I have worked as a Teaching Assistant and a Research Assistant during both my undergraduate and graduate years and I have major journal publications in several topics.

JavaScript

I have over 10 years cumulative experience, working on several projects that vary from small websites to mobile apps and very large space systems.

Javascript was but one of the many technologies I have used and am still using throughout my career. In addition to javascript, I have used jquery and ajax intensively on personal and freelancing projects.

Linux

I used Linux for over 5 years and currently using, on three big projects I have worked on. The projects ranged from automotive telematics to satellite networks. I do also actively use Linux to host websites and backup servers both personal and for my clients.

UNIX

I have over 10 years cumulative experience, working on several projects that run on several platforms including Linux, Unix, Solaris, Mac OS and Windows.

In addition to having taken a Unix/shell script graduate course during my MS years, the systems I have used allowed me to develop my shell scripting and Unix commands/programming skills. I am familiar with both the BSD and Solaris flavors of UNIX. Of course Mac OSX is also built on top of UNIX and I am a programmer for that platform as well.

Web Design

As a freelancer and a full-time employee, I have had the chance to develop and design several websites. Some of these projects were a couple pages only with personal information and others were enterprise satellite communications & control website systems. Additionally, I have designed and developed a few e-commerce websites with ordering and invoicing systems for several clients.
