About Don

My educational experience includes 64 semester hours towards an Associate in Applied Science in Electronics Engineering Technology. I have tutored others in basic electronics and digital electronics at the community college I attended as well as various math subjects including algebra and geometry.

I have taught classes in manufacturing plants in behavioral safety that including developing the training materials for trainers and students and being personally involved in teaching courses lasting for 8 hour days and in some cases 2 days to over 800 employees of a major manufacturing company. I have created the training materials for use in a joint manufacturing venture with a manufacturing company based in India, Reliant Industries, which involved extensive writing, creating drawings, flow charts, 35mm slides, and videos for training following a specific template and format to be used in training foreign nationals manufacturing practices used in the United States.

The combination of college education and experience gained in 20 years of manufacturing and four years of military service, as well as proficiency with computers and previous experience tutoring others will enable me to tutor prospective students. The extensive experience I have in training numerous people with all types of personalities enables me to communicate effectively and to understand and focus on what a student needs to learn.

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 read and studied the Bible for numerous years. From Genesis in the Old Testament to Malachi, and from Matthew in the New Testament to Revelation. I have a deep respect and enjoyment for reading and developing an understanding for the Word of God. The key to teaching and learning the Bible is a love for God's Word.

In college, my studies were primarily on the New Testament with particular emphasis on the gospels. In my private studies I often do word or subject studies of Scriptures. My preferred Bible version is the King James and the New King James versions and I also use Strong's Concordance along with my Thompson New Chain Reference King James Bible.

Chess

I have been playing chess for over 40 years. I can instruct others in how to move each of the pieces from the pawns to the rooks, bishops, knights, queen, and king. I can teach them the rules of chess and explain about castling and stalemate. I can show them the basic strategies and how to protect their key pieces as well as mistakes to avoid.

I have taught others how the pieces move and spent time playing with them and showing them the quickest way to win and to lose the game of chess. I genuinely enjoy playing chess and this will be reflected in the manner that I teach.

General Computer

I have been working with computers for over 25 years. I have taken them apart, replaced parts within the tower, and put them together. In college I ordered a case, motherboard, hard drive and disk drives and assembled them and set the system up using Microsoft XP operating system.
I have put in memory chips and changed out power supplies. This experience has taught me all the parts of the computer and how the computer works including the boot sequence.

I can teach someone all of the computer basics from hooking up the computer tower, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, and printers. I can teach them how to navigate the start up menu and task bar, find programs, look for files and programs, and to do word processing and other programs. I can help students navigate the internet and/or set up virus protection on their computer. My experience with hardware, software, knowledge of how computers work, and how to navigate and perform tasks on computers qualifies me to teach others.
