About Kevin

I have been using computers since I was a kid in the 70's, have an undergraduate degree in cell and molecular biology, and spent 15 years working in a professional laboratory. I am also well versed in current peripherals, iOS, Android, WordPress, Windows, and will also perform app and gaming consultations to enable parents to make appropriate choices for their kids.

My training in science allows me to suggest practical scenarios to academic concepts, which I find helps people conceptualize fairly abstract subject matter. I am a patient, pragmatic person who relies on years of experience and colorful analogies to make learning effective and fun for teens and adults.

If you need help with something related and want to know if I can help, please reach out.

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.

Biology

As well as having a degree in cellular and molecular biology, I spent 14 years in a professional laboratory performing every job function from baculoviral custom service to assay design and development. Biology is quite simply in my blood, and I would be happy to help you with either the fundamentals or bringing your skills to the next level.

Microsoft Excel

I have been using Microsoft Excel in both a scientific and business capacity for many years. I have taught others how to build predictive real estate models and also how to analyze biochemical assay data in a drug development capacity.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook as my email client for nearly 15 years. I have set up pop, imap, Gmail, and exchange accounts on the same platform as well as integrated social media and other plug ins. Also, while I haven't done too many of them, I have also set up mail merges for newsletter distributions. I currently am a Manhattan real estate agent and utilize Outlook and the office suite extensively as my primary communication platform. If you have any specific questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

Microsoft Windows

I built my first desktop in the mid 1990s running win95 and have never looked back since. While I have used Macs over the years, Windows had always been my go-to.

I can teach just about any desktop function save command line networking. As a life-long PC user I have taught many people over the years how to use their Windows platforms including children and seniors.
