About Albert

The key to learning any subject is to be able to read. My father had limited education, but he instilled in me the value of reading. I have no college degrees but I am a retired professional who managed college degreed personnel for a major pharmaceutical company. After receiving formal training in AutoCAD and Microsoft applications, I have trained many of my peers and direct reports to use these same applications. My success was possible because I did not ask anyone for answers I did not know. I would search for the answer myself by READING.

I worked as a facilities planner/designer for Schering-Plough Corp (now Merck) for 30 years. I developed architectural construction drawings for office facilities in office, lab and manufacturing buildings. My last two years I was responsible for managing CAD operations in my department. I recommended and specified computer equipment for CAD operators. I implemented and scheduled CAD and facilities management software training. I am now retired.

My previous job experience has been an education in itself. It taught me how to communicate with management professionals at all levels in the corporate environment. It gave me opportunities to conduct meetings and make presentations to upper management.

I am currently engaged in a voluntary public Bible educational program, which I have been doing for the past 50 years. I am a public speaker and have spoken before groups as large as 30,000. My life's experience has qualified me to teach others and I get much gratification from doing so.

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.

Bible Studies

I am an ordained minister since January 1962. I have been teaching the Bible in private homes for over 45 years. I am responsible for teaching members in my congregation on a weekly basis. Jesus said at Matthew 10:7, "You received free, give free". For this reason I cannot conscientiously charge anyone for teaching them the truths from God's Word, the Bible.
