About Rich

I graduated the top 10% of my high school class. I graduated from Wright State University with a degree in computer engineering. I began working for the university while finishing my degree and have worked in the IT industry for 17 years. I'm presently working as a Network Design Architect with a focus on Linux System Administration.

I've programmed in PHP for over a decade and have tutored in Java. I've also used MySQL for the same amount of time. I have a background in C & C++ as well as Java. I've helped setup and configure my children's school network and I maintain several servers as well as approximately 70 desktops.

I taught classes in Access for four years and have used other databases extensively (Oracle, Sql Server, MySQL). Ive written several database-enabled websites in PHP and MySQL. I've been using Linux for two decades and am currently working in a Linux System Administration role maintaing approximately 160 servers.

I've been playing Chess since I was five years old. My grandfather taught me to play and he was taught by a grandmaster. I've learned to look several moves ahead and anticipate what might be coming next.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you grow in your computer or Chess future.

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.

Chess

I've been playing Chess for almost 34 years and I've taught several people how to play. I've been a guest instructor for Chess club at my Children's school and have played against 8 kids at one time. I've played in lots of online tourneys and I try to anticipate at least 3-4 moves ahead on what might happen with each play. It's a game I truly enjoy.

Linux

I've been using Linux for approximately 20 years. I started off using Slackware and tried several other distributions. I've since switched to Ubuntu and use it daily. I maintain several servers using Oracle Linux which is a Red Hat derivative. I've also installed / used / supported Centos as well as Debian and Fedora.

Microsoft Access

Several years ago, I developed a training course for Access in Office XP. I recreated that course in version 2003. This was a 4 part course that started off with the basics of creating tables and queries. I then moved on to forms and reports. By the time class was finished, each student was able to create a basic switchboard front-ended database with multiple relational tables and queries.

PHP

I've been developing with PHP since 2003. I've written entire websites and created stand-alone applications with PHP. These range from simple, calculator type apps to full-database enabled websites. I ran a business based on PHP websites for approximately 5 years. I wrote an app that allowed people to customize their site before such sites were available and most web development was static HTML.
