About Finn

I used to be an English teacher in Denmark before emigrating to the United States in 1985. I thoroughly enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students eager to learn rather than classroom. As such I trained corporate employees in the use of computers and phone system for several years. During that time I also helped out with computer problems and special projects.

I have spent about 15 years supporting small business computer networks. I know my way around most Windows operating systems and Windows business programs. I can maintain computer systems, solve problems and replace components when required. I can support basic wired and wireless small business or home networks.

I love to share what I know.

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 completed and passed required coursework in Christian studies for certification as Danish public school teacher.

I attend weekly church service and Bible study.

I read a Bible chapter daily and review online commentary periodically.

I lead beginner Bible study in informal bi-weekly gathering.

ESL/ESOL

I was an English teacher in a Danish elementary school. I also studied English business communication for two years there.

Microsoft Access

I have studied the basic steps to design an Access database including table design, linking tables, creating queries to display, sort or filter data, create basic forms based on tables or queries as well as basic report creation.

Microsoft Excel

I was a corporate trainer in a large law firm. I trained new employees in all aspects of computer and phone system use.

I also became certified in Excel by National Bookkeeper Association.

Microsoft Outlook

I use several versions of Microsoft Outlook both professionally and privately. I can help you or your student master this program.

Microsoft Windows

I have been a computer network administrator for 15 years working with all versions of Windows. I was an English teacher in the Danish public school system. I have taught office procedures for new employees including use of Windows computers, related productivity programs, as well as phone systems.

Microsoft Word

Are you writing letter, making fliers, brochures, or even a complex mail merge? I can help you get started.

Networking (Computer)

I have maintained a small business computer network (approximately 30 users) for over 15 years. I also have a small home network with a wireless router.

I can help you acquire the various physical components you need for a simple network. I can help you set up a simple Windows server, populate it with users, share resources, restrict or permit access to them. I can help you set up workstations so they can access those resources either wired or wirelessly. I can show you how to protect your network from spy- and other malware, back up your data, monitor and apply software updates.

Very patient.

He is a good teacher with a solid industry experience. I learned a lot from him not only in terms of language but also regarding the society. Very interesting.
