About Adam

I am a patient computer and technology tutor with over 15 years’ experience with students as young as 4 and as old as 85. I have overseen technology at three schools and currently lead technology at a private school in Manhattan. I also have two degrees in education so I know how to teach in an effective way.

I am proficient in the most common computer applications. Moreover, in my job I have to learn new software on a regular basis and teach it to others. I currently teach introductory computer programming at a private school in Manhattan and have taught a variety of technology courses in the past. If it’s related to tech, chances are I can help you.

In my tutoring, I try to be the guide on the side and not the sage on the stage! My goal is to stay off of the mouse and let the student do the work. After all; the one who works is the one who learns.

I look forward to working with 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.

Computer Programming

I have taught computer programming for over 15 years. I started teaching programming in computer camps while I was still in college. Eventually, I became the director of the computer camp. I have also taught computer programming at several top private schools.

Computer Science

I have a great deal of experience teaching computer science at K-12 schools. I began teaching programming many years ago at computer camps at top universities. Most recently, I have taught computer science at several private schools including two in Manhattan. I've taught several languages/environments including robotics, logo, basic, scratch, html, php, javascript, and processing. I look forward to working with you!

JavaScript

I have taught coding and computer science in a K-12 setting for over 15 years. Currently, I teach JavaScript as part of my Intro to Computer Science course. I use a project-based approach that makes learning this popular language fun!

Macintosh

I have deployed and supported Macs in my role as a school IT director for over 15 years. I have helped students and faculty in a variety of Mac applications like Pages and iMovie and also with the basics of the OS X operating system. I currently use a MacBook Air with both Windows and OS X installed so I can keep abreast of all the changes with these operating systems.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been supporting Microsoft Outlook in educational organizations for over ten years. This has included both the front end (Outlook for Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPad) and back end (Exchange email server). Through one-on-one trainings and group classes, I have trained hundreds of people on how to use Outlook effectively.

Microsoft Windows

I have been helping people with Microsoft Windows since Windows 98. I am currently IT Manager at a school with a Windows infrastructure. I am a certified Microsoft professional and have expertise in all Windows operating systems including Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

Networking (Computer)

I have been in charge of the network infrastructure at two organizations. This has included overseeing email. print, web, database, and other network services. I am also a trained teacher so I can break down difficult concepts unlike a lot of techies. Additionally, I am Microsoft certified.

Web Design

I have a great deal of experience creating and maintaining web sites for organizations. This includes designing web sites from scratch using HTML, working with databases and scripting languages, and leveraging popular content management systems like WordPress and Joomla. These experiences have kept me up-to-date on the latest web technologies.

I have also taught web design several times in my private school career and at computer camps. I look forward to helping you!
