About Chris

I have trained professionals in a business environment on how to use certain software programs. I've also helped others use a computer or figured out how to do a task on the computer that was rather difficult. I have the drive to teach those that want to learn and need the help and I will not stop until that person fully understands. I am the type of person that likes to finish a task and if I don't know how to do something I will tell you but I will also find out how to accomplish that task.

My goal is to help others not only in the areas of computers and software but also in math. Specifically, algebra because that is the area I see in college that so many people have trouble with. It's the foundation for advanced math classes and if you intend to pursue a medical, business, accounting, or even a computer science degree calculus 1 or more advanced classes will need to be taken at some point. This is where those good math habits start. So my intention is to help those who need tutoring to improve there algebraic skills.

I also have a few tricks up my sleeve on how to solve problems. So even if I don't know how to do something I can still find out how and teach those that need the help. My experience in math obviously exceeds well over 3 years since I've been in college but I'm also older so I've taken math in grades 1-12 and now in college. So the fact that I've managed to get to Calculus 3 is an accomplishment in itself.

I am currently in Computer Science 2 (Object-oriented Programming (OOP)). I am also considered an expert when it comes to knowing my way around Windows and any hardware on a computer or software such as Office Products; the latest being Office 2013. If you need to know how to perform a task or using Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Windows or Word, I can help you with the simplest to more advanced tasks. My experience in programming is 1 year but my experience in Windows and Office Products exceeds 15 years plus.

I am flexible in my hours of the day, however, because I am in school during the day, I can do tutoring over the phone, online via Skype or in person on Friday, Saturday and/or Sundays. Obviously, the more time you schedule the better opportunity we have of completing our session with you gaining the knowledge needed to perform those tasks you've learned, in the future. Please feel free to ask me any questions about how to get started. NOTE: I do charge an hourly rate of $25/hour and I do require at minimum of 2 hours notice for any cancellations or rescheduling.

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.

Algebra 2

I'm currently a student but I am taking Calculus 3 and I am a sophomore in college. I'm also a computer science major so math is a strong subject of mine. If I don't know the answer to something I am honest but I will also find the answer to ensure you know not only the answer but how it was derived.

C++

I've completed Computer Science 1 and 2. I am currently taking Data Structures at the University of Nevada-Reno. I can submit my unofficial transcript from Truckee Meadows Community College to show my completion of Computer Science 1 and 2. As well as a screenshot of my current classes I am taking.

I am familiar with the following categories of C++: Procedural Programming; Object-Oriented Programming; andTemplates.

General Computer

I have about 2 years professional experience working on computers. I'm also a computer science major in college. If I don't know the answer to something I will tell you and I know how to find an answer.

Microsoft Excel

I have a combined 14+ years of experience using Excel professionally and as a student. I have created spreadsheets for graphs, pivot tables, large amounts of data (250,000+ rows & 100 columns) while using formulas such as if, and, or, vlookups and more to manipulate, move, overwrite and edit data massively.

Microsoft Windows

I've taken the A+ course (Hardware & Software) and I've got experience using and teaching how to use Windows at my previous employer (Arvato Digital Services, LLC). I'm familiar with file structures, how Windows operates, configuring Windows as well as administering updates or maintenance.

Microsoft Word

15 years of computer exp.
Computer science major
Can show you how to use any MS Office application including word.
I can also help with finding tutorials or booms that would also help as a reference.
