About John

I really enjoy helping people in any way I can. I am patient with people and can simplify things to more common terms by using examples or comparing things to things they already understand or have experienced. I have worked with people on the side as a tutor in addition to having a full time job as a Network Manager at a $12 billion dollar company for 23 years. I have personal experience with building networks and using network connected devices, whether it be a standard Windows PC or laptop to more complicated devices such as engineering hardware to build products in a manufacturing environment.

I have always wanted to teach a night school class at a college for Microsoft Office products or Computer Networking but simply never had the time to commit to a strict schedule. I have had to provide tutoring services on a scheduled basis that fits around myself and the person seeking guidance in the past which has worked out rather well. I love knowing that I have helped someone.

I am an expert in the Microsoft Office suite of products such Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, Publisher. I have also used Access to build a few databases for people and understand it at an intermediate level. Computer Networking is my strongest suit where I have experience with TCP/IP and the understanding of routing, switching, IP address subnetting, firewalls, WAN, VPN and WiFi connections for 20+ years. My degrees have taught me some things but my real world experience has taught me the most and makes me a valuable asset to show how certain skills can translate into needs of a business or a personal need.

I am a seasoned IT professional who has had to deal with emergency and planned network outages on 24x7x365 basis for over 20 years. I have reported on status and resolution to CEO's, CIO's, VP's and their staff. I have helped resolve issues or have resolved them all on my own at all hours of the day at locations around the globe. I have an MBA so I can also understand what people may be trying to do with their application or area of study and how it applies to the business world. This helps people understand why it's worth learning what they're learning. Feel free to reach out to me if you're seeking a true professional who is friendly and patient to help you with your needs. I have 2 children, so I can appreciate the difficulty that adult learners may have due to time constraints. I also work well with younger people as I feel I am still in touch with multiple generations.

Background Check: Passed

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.

General Computer

I was an IT Network Manager for 23 years.

Microsoft Excel

I am very proficient in Excel and have used it on a daily basis for nearly 20 years. I can create spreadsheets with multiple worksheets and reference cells from other worksheets to perform various needs. I can show people the value of things such as sorting, auto filter, how to do mathematical calculations. I know the best ways to organize data so that it can be viewed easily and also how to reference a fixed cell using $ directives to show that certain things shouldn't be changed when copying and pasting cells.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook since the 1997 version when it replaced Microsoft Mail. I have used it as my primary email resources almost 20 years now. I have experience composing and reading mail, creating groups, folders, calendar usage to manage one or more calendars, sending and receiving calendar invites, task list, creating rules and configuring the application one or more mailboxes. I also know how to export and import mail from other mailboxes or older Outlook mailboxes from mail stored on a server or in a personal folder file (.pst).

Microsoft PowerPoint

I've used Powerpoint for nearly 15 years for presentations to various audiences. I can create slides using templates or from scratch, insert pictures, transitions, add sound to slides and deal with the issues of having things overlap with one another and resize things. I can show people how to save a Powerpoint .pptx to a format where it can be viewed as a .pps file which would not require someone to have Powerpoint to view the presentation.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Microsoft Windows since Windows 3.1 (before Windows 95) in the early 1990's as an IT professional and average home user. I have installed nearly every version of Windows and have had to do extensive troubleshooting of Windows machines for virus remediation or application slowdown issues or simple cleanup operations to prune down applications to speed the machine up. I know how to use regedit without damaging a PC and know to make restore points and am very familiar with the control panel settings. I also know how to customize things for people's personal needs.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word dating back to the 90's. I can compose letters, term papers, create headers and footers, insert page numbers, build templates, perform mail merges to create mailing labels from outside sources such as Access databases. I know how to change margins and fit things on to pages when page limits are desirable. I've used almost every feature inside Microsoft Word that I think exists through the years.

Networking (Computer)

I have 20+ years in configuring and maintaining data and voice networks for a $12B global company. I have been a Network Manager for over 80+ sites globally with responsibility to keep them online. I have had to follow ITIL processes to perform changes, incident management, problem management and root cause analysis. I have been responsible for a data center with over 100 servers connected to a 10gig backplane network to WAN connecting to sites inside the company and through firewalls via VPN to outside partners.
