About Wesley

I'm currently in a Master's program for Management of Information Systems. Part of the course work is learning to manage employees and lead them. I will use my education, knowledge, and experience to help in any way I can. Even if I'm not immediately familiar with your specific needs, I can quickly brush up on forgotten material in order to help you learn and grow.

I enjoy learning and enjoy helping people learn, but do not feel like I could be a teacher in our public school systems. This is primarily due to a personal believe that the student should be held responsible for their work. As such, I would give the student whatever grade they deserve, but schools will not allow low grades to be recorded. I believe this is fundamentally wrong and believe it sends the wrong message to our children. I hold my children responsible for their actions, and their education, and I will do no less for you.

My desire in tutoring is to help foster a yearning to learn and grow as individuals. This fundamental self-motivation is important for future success. Learning can be enjoyable, but I believe that the individual should also be accountable to their learning.

I've tutored various people, including my children, friends' children, classmates, and my parents. I am willing to work to understand how you learn so that you can get the most from the experience. As long as you're willing to learn, I'm willing to teach.

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.

Chess

I started a chess club in my high school in 10th grade and was the chess club president. I learned by reading a book and playing the game. I enjoy playing and love to teach the game.

Linux

I have been using Linux since 2002 and have worked with Red Hat based systems (including CentOS), Debian based systems (including Ubuntu), and Gentoo. I've been a Linux Administrator since July 2009.

Public Speaking

I was the national Region IV Vice President of Skills USA-VICA, which included a week long public speaking training. Next, we trained the state officers in a public speaking training seminar. Our exercises included giving a 5 minute impromptu speech on a topic designated at the time of the speech.
