Subjects

Computer

Macintosh,

Macintosh

In past jobs, ranging from academic research to public libraries, I have been responsible for maintaining, upgrading, troubleshooting and providing user assistance for Apple computers. I am familiar with the system architecture and file organization of Mac OS X and FreeBSD, the UNIX variant upon which it is based. I also familiar with Mac hardware configurations on Macs, iMacs and Powerbooks, including storage, memory, expansion slots and other interfaces. This experience and expertise would allow me to assist students with Macintosh issues at any level and virtually any context.
SQL

SQL

In addition to a PhD in Neuroscience, I have a MS in Information Science, which included formal training in database design, data modeling and SQL. I have built and configured several enterprise-class databases using MySQL, MariaDB and PostgreSQL, including graphical interfaces for database management, a suite of SQL query templates and a set of scripts for automating common tasks, like data insertion and database backups.

Brilliant Tutor, so helpful!

I brought to Rick an overwhelmingly long paper for research methods and he reviewed the syllabus and grading rubric. Rick helped me synthesize information as well as present perfect APA. WORK WITH RICK

Knowledgeable Information Science tutor

Good first session laying down the groundwork to discuss models and theories related to Information Science. As a distance graduate student, Rick's ability to assimilate the course work and facilitate a dialogue is much appreciated in helping me build a stronger base of the concepts and construct in IS. I look forward to working with him weekly over the next six weeks.

Patient and knowledgeable

As I continue to learn more about SQL, today l learned more about physical design techniques and how they worked in an assignment. Rick is always patient and explains concepts well.

Very effective tutor

Rick has a great combination of knowledge, communication skills, and friendly disposition. My sessions with him have been highly effective and pleasant. I find the requirement of filling the page with further details to be silly. My feedback was specific and carefully considered. I guess the additional words requirement is to make it harder to submit fake reviews but deters me from leaving reviews on Yelp. If this word filling technique doesn't work I'll make up some more about Rick. Bottom-line - I highly recommend Rick.

Jeff, 12 lessons with Rick

Highly knowledgeable

Rick is excellent. He is very professional and extremely seasoned. He takes his time to work through things with you and is able to guide you through everything easily. His level of knowledge will leave you reassured that you are in good hands.
