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.

Computer Programming

I have worked in the IT industry for over 30 years. I have taken the tests, and passed for Java, javascript, PHP, Perl. I have also worked with SAS, Pascal, and C#.

Discrete Math

My Bachelor's degree is in Systems Science. My master's in Electrical Engineering was also in the realm of Systems Science. This course of study involved both analog and discrete math. I have done extensive simulation projects, involving both types of math.

Finite Math

I have been a tutor at a community college for eight years, and a math instructor for 3 years. I have a Master's Degree in mathematics. As an instructor, I have taught business mathematics. As I tutor, I have tutored the Finite math class. The hardest thing for the students is the simplex method, and I've gotten many students through that.

JavaScript

I have tutored several times at a community college on javascript. As a developer, I have done significant work on my web sites with javascript to validate inputs. These sites have included C#, perl and php. I also did a web site that used javascript to call AJAX functions.

Perl

I have tutored extensively at the community college level for Java, javascript, C++, and web design (dream weaver). I know that tutoring is not about getting a good homework assignment, but becoming a better student. I have extensive experience with perl. I constructed a web site in perl for user provisioning for a large automotive company. I've created a lot of perl scripts even at my current job to manage administrative tasks.

PHP

I have tutored extensively at the community college level for Java, javascript, C++, and web design (dream weaver). I know that tutoring is not about getting a good homework assignment, but becoming a better student. I have extensive experience with PHP. I wrote a web site that I use with my math students to exercise math drills. I have several other projects that I have worked on at my personal web site that utilize PHP and mySQL.

Public Speaking

I was a member of Toastmasters for several years in Chattanooga, Tennessee; Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Troy, Michigan. I completed the Dale Carnegie course. I participated in the Speaker Bureau at Detroit Edison, where we went out to public settings to present subjects relevant to the electric utility. I have been a mathematics instructor at Oakland Community College for 3 years.
