About Shawn

I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems and have been programming in many languages for over 26 years in the healthcare industry. Whether you are looking to come up to speed with these languages as a beginner or trying to build something more advanced and you just need a little help debugging a project, I can help.

As one of the three Senior Solutions Consultants responsible for the design of Kaiser Permanente's claims-processing platform, I was also responsible for all of the automated testing of this platform throughout 4 separate division implementations. I have been architecting all phases of the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) for over 26 years and have built scores of utilities in technologies such VB, Microsoft Access, Excel, Java, Unix Shell Scripts, Quick Test Pro, Advanced SQL queries and many others.

I also developed a web based political campaign application hosted at Rackspace that was used in political campaigns in upstate NY to get out the vote for over 1.8 million voters and can help with web design questions particularly in HTML.

Below is one few written endorsements that I have received from my tutoring over the years:

"Shawn and I were partners during a semester-long project at The College of Saint Rose. During that semester I learned a lot from his invaluable real-world experience with application development. He was extremely gracious and made me feel like my development as a student was just as important as the outcome of the project itself. Thank you."

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 have been teaching the Bible for over 15 years and have a 69-week overview of the Old Testament prepared in a series of PowerPoint presentations that I use in Sunday morning Bible study lessons for young adult class in church.

Linux

I am adept at Unix/Linus shell scripting. If you need help with regular expressions, basic commands, piping and redirecting output, awk scripting, identity and access management concepts, process monitoring, and other Linux topics, I can help. I have been automating tasks in Unix AIX and Linux environments for over 20 years and can help you with homework assignments or to be more efficient at work.

Microsoft Access

I have built scores of small and large applications in Microsoft Access utilizing most (if not all) of the functions and features Access has to offer.

One example of a large database I created in Microsoft Access was called ClaimCreator. This application allowed one-click creation of mocked up claims for Kaiser Permanente eliminating the need to use live membership data containing PHI. This single application made use of linked tables against Oracle, read and created text files, applied advanced parsing routines to text files, and stored many complex profile settings that users could reuse in the future to create large sets of regression test claims.

I have also built many applications that made advanced use of the reporting features such as mail merge routines for a lawyers office, a judgement recovery business, a vascular surgery registry and many others.

Whether you are looking to utilize the menu-driven capabilities of Microsoft Access, or wish to develop more advanced modules using event driven and/or object oriented programming, I can explain these concepts to anyone that wants to learn.
