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.

Bible Studies

I went to Riverdale Baptist and Annapolis Area Christian School for all of primary and secondary school. I also am regular in a local Bible-based church and my wife and I are key leadership of a local non-profit we started to support kids in Kenya, Africa.

Business

I am working on my MBA at Johns Hopkins, and have been running my own business for 3 years now.

Career Development

I have interviewed at the likes of NASA, NATO, CSC, ADP, Loyola University and many others, and gotten jobs.

I have worked in the IT industry for over 15 years and know the ins/outs of hiring, management, getting hired, getting a job - all perspectives.

I have used CareerBuilder, Monster and the Ladders to further my career and help many others do the same.

I am currently helping my adopted sister who graduated from Towson University to find gainful employment

Macintosh

I have used a MAC now for about 5 years and am very proficient at the system, everything from the Activity Monitor, to TextEdit, to iWork, to iMovie/DVD/iTunes, etc. I'm also very adept at using Finder and other ancillary functionality on the MAC system. I've used Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and other OS versions.

Marketing

My company does social media and website marketing for small businesses. So I'm keenly aware of how to teach both young students and adults how to market themselves. Everything from YPto Google, to Bing, to Facebook, to Twitter, to LinkedIn, to Pinterest and much, much more!

Microsoft Windows

I started working in Windows when it wasn't an operating system. (3.1 - DOS was)

I am fully capable in nearly all versions of Windows

Piano

I had a year of formal training and have self taught the basics to myself. (I only want to offer Piano 101, essentially)

I also play the guitar and drums - piano provided me the fundamentals to do this over the past 15 years, on and off.

I am currently teaching my eldest son, who is 5 years old, to learn the basics of the piano fundamentals and theory.

Web Design

I have my own consultancy group - here in Baltimore, MD.

I have developed hundreds of sites, to-date.

I have taught 400-level undergraduate courses at UMBC in web design and programming.
