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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
