About Robert

IT is a broad and diverse field of study which I love. I've been around computers, mobile devices, gaming consoles, etc. since I was a child; from TANDY, Windows 3.1, and old brick shaped mobile phones of yesteryear to ASUS, Windows 10, and the iPhones and Galaxies of today I've seen and lived through a lot of technology. I originally thought I wanted to be a physical therapist, and then several years ago I woke up and realized that I wanted to make a career out of the technology and IT that I had been around and enjoyed my whole life thus far. I have worked in smaller offices with Healthcare IT, I've been a field technician for larger companies, and now I'm an IT government contractor. I am currently working on my Network+.
I love talking and learning about IT as it is a passion of mine. I have not formally done tutoring before besides assisting co-workers, friends, family, and strangers just through conversation, but I would like to try my hand at it officially. My main goal is to assist people wanting to become CompTIA A+ certified as I passed the exam on my first try from independent study alone and want to help people get their foot in the door to the IT field.

I completed my CompTIA A+ certification in 2011 and have worked several jobs related to and beyond the scope of that certification over the past several years. I've built and upgraded my own computers before. I have worked in basic networking with active directory, making and running cable, and dealing with physical components of servers. Most of my experience has been Tier 1 and Tier 2 support levels as a help desk agent and field repair technician.

If you are looking for someone with experience in the realm of general computing and A+ level work experience then I'm your guy! As I mentioned before my main goal is in assisting people get through their CompTIA A+ certification. I am also available to help with people working on entry level IT degrees, computer hardware and Windows operating system classes, and people just wanting a better understanding of computers and technology in general!

Let me make it clear that I do not by any means specialize in Computer Science i.e. programming; that is a very different specific realm under the wide umbrella or Information Technology.
