About Michael

COBOL:

I retired at the end of 2014 after a career in IT. I worked almost entirely using the COBOL language and consider myself an expert in the field. At this point I'm looking for something to keep me occupied but nothing full time. My ideal situation would be tutoring for a few hours/week.

I would expect this to be long distance tutoring where both of us are connected by computer using one of the many applications available (Go To Meeting, etc).

I used COBOL daily for almost 40 years, often teaching others.

Math (Pre-Algebra)

I hated math until I got into middle school and started taking Algebra. That's when math started to make sense. I've tutored elementary and middle school students during the summer since retiring and enjoy working with students who hate math as I did but are willing to work toward improving that feeling.

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.

COBOL

I began writing computer programs in COBOL in 1975. Since that time I've written complete systems for companies as a W2 employee as well as an independent contractor.

Some of the better known companies are Bose Corporation (Framingham, MA, 3M (St. Paul MN), Blue Cross of Massachusetts and Blue Cross of Rhode Island.

Some of the most intricate code included interfacing order entry and billing systems with 3rd party credit card processors which in turn passed information back and forth between the major credit card companies (Visa, Master Card, etc).

I was often chosen as the go-to person to mentor people new to programming or people new to this particular language (COBOL).
