About Colin

I developed an interest in teaching while I was in the Air Force and was assigned to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA as a Czech language instructor. After I retired from the Air Force, I began teaching computer-related subjects.

I specialize in computer networking and security topics. I have taught computer hardware and operating systems (CompTIA's A+) and networking (CompTIA's Network+) and CompTIA's Security+ certification courses. I have also taught Cisco networking courses. I am currently an adjunct instructor in computer hardware and operating systems for Our Lady of the Lake University (San Antonio) and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access) for Coastal Bend College (Beeville).

I have a bachelor's degree in Information Systems and a master's degree in Information Technology. My university studies allow me to bring additional insights into networking and security topics beyond those offered in the official study guides.

I have also studied German and Czech and lived in Germany for six years while on active duty with the U. S. Air Force.

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.

Czech

I was a Czech linguist in the U. S. Air Force. I completed both the Basic and Intermediate level classes at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. I was stationed there as a Czech language instructor from 1983 to 1987. I achieved a rating of 3+ in comprehension and 4 (out of a maximum of 5) in speaking on an oral proficiency test while there. From 1987 until I retired from the Air Force, even though I did not use this language in my job, I maintained a 3 level in both listening and reading comprehension, except for one year, on each proficiency test taken.

General Computer

I am CompTIA A+ certified since 1999. I have built, repaired, and upgraded my own computers since about 1993. I am currently teaching computer hardware and operating systems for Our Lady of the Lake University.

German

I studied German for four years in high school and one year in college. I was stationed in Germany for six years while in the Air Force.

Grammar

I have served as an editor for several people over the years, reviewing their work for both grammar and composition. I have also written reports and college-level papers (both undergraduate and graduate) that have scored at least 95%. I am currently teaching computer classes for Our Lady of the Lake University and require my students to write papers that I grade for both organization and English grammar.

I have a Bachelors degree in Information Systems and a Masters degree in Information Technology with an Infrastructure Assurance concentration both from UTSA.

I have taught Computer Network Operations courses for the U. S. Air Force (which include Network+, Security+, ICND1, and ICND2), have taught a Cisco Certified Network Associate class for Southern Methodist University, and have taught Network+ classes for New Horizons. I am currently teaching computer hardware, operating system, and networking classes for Our Lady of the Lake University. I also teach networking classes for the University of the Incarnate Word.
