About Scott

I'm an avid photographer and computer enthusiast, working with a MacBook in my personal life and Windows 7 in my professional life. I've worked with Excel for years and in the last couple years started getting into VBA programming as well as starting to look at getting certified for the knowledge I have but can't prove.

In my past I was a naval officer who graduated from the Naval Academy and served as a nuclear submarine officer. I got out and went to work in finance as a back office operations guy and later as an internal auditor for a very large bank in Boston, MA. Other pursuits of mine involve woodworking and whatever project needs some technical assistance at my church.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I have worked in finance for a number of years and have experience using spreadsheets in general, going back to 1994. Spreadsheets are just very useful calculators, and I find that you can utilize them for finance and engineering or any sort of mathematical study. My experience with Excel now extends into the ability to write (not simply record) macros utilizing the Visual Basic for Applications language, which I am rather proficient.

Visual Basic

Since my last submission of my qualifications in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), I have been hired by Mondelez International in their reporting department and I am full-time running VBA macros, editing/improving existing scripts, or writing new ones. My skills in VBA are now cross-platform (Excel and Outlook), and I use non-native libraries such as the Scripting, Regular Expressions, and ADODB runtimes. My strength remains is still primarily VBA for Excel, but knowledge of variable/data types, if/select case statements, using the object model/OOP, loops (for, while/until), properties/methods/events, variable scope, passing parameters to other sub procedures/functions, variable scope, error handling, etc. --- is universal.

I programmed in college and high school in Pascal, so I'm not new to programming -- I am fairly new to VBA (started 2 years ago), but I work with it every day and feel that I am more than capable tutoring someone just getting started -- I'm currently helping out colleagues with their VBA projects despite their longer experience with the subject because I've actually studied it more thoroughly and with greater interest than they did.

I did not get an explanation why my credentials were rejected for this subject previously, but my skills and my confidence in programming has increased dramatically since my last submission, and I am more than capable of tutoring a student in VBA.
