About Dave

I have a desire to help others. While working in a corporation's Information Services Department, my role was to develop application and train personnel to use those applications. I also became proficient with the MS Office products and taught others how to use them. I am technically capable but also quite capable to put technology in layman's terms. As an independent consultant, I have developed websites in PHP/JavaScript/Apache/MySQL and Wordpress.

The bottom line is that I can help you. I will adjust my tutoring style to meet your learning style. We will work together to accomplish your education goals.

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.

COBOL

I was a programmer in a corporate environment for many years. The primary language used was COBOL. I also set up and coordinated regular programming walk-throughs and presented at same. I also was sought out for one-on-one assistance by other department personnel.

Computer Programming

I have been programming computers for many years both in a corporate setting, as an independent consultant and for personal use. I have extensive experience in COBOL, Mainframe Assembler, REXX, Visual Basic 6, PHP and JavaScript. I have taught basic concepts as one-on-one sessions to various individuals.

HTML

I have been developing websites and web-based applications for 15 years. My primary expertise is with Wordpress and PHP/MySQL on Apache servers. More recently I have been becoming familiar with Java Script to limit client-server traffic.

JavaScript

I am self-taught in javascript through web-training. My experience has been developing applications for the web. To date I have not taught javascript but now feel qualified to teach introductory and beginner scripting.

Microsoft Excel

I used Excel for complex problem solving for 20 years. I am not adept at using the built in programming language, however.

PHP

I have educated myself in php through books, web-based education and the school of hard knocks. I have been developing websites using the language and html for 15 years as a part-time developer/consultant. I feel qualified to teach introductory and intermediate developers.
