About Logan

I am a student of Information Security and IT Network Administration. I loved Math. I was pretty good with Algebra (hated geometry, if we're being honest) and am very left brained. I considered pursuing a degree as a programmer, but just couldn't see myself doing it as a career. I still code recreationally (primarily in Python or Bash (Linux), but occasionally JAVA) - I know pieces perl, Ruby, and frequently attempting to learn C++. I am a CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry-level Networking Technician) - and have taken classes corresponding to Microsoft's certifications for Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7. Looking at my quick-launch bar, the first four entries are: Terminal (command prompt), Firefox, LibreOffice Writer and VmWare Workstation. This should say something about my usage habits.

Beyond my technical qualifications - what can be said for tutoring skills? Well, when I've tutored (informally) for Linux, one of the people I was tutoring (actually, first time I ever really tried tutoring in general) remarked that I should become a teacher.

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.

Computer Programming

I like to program. Its a fun hobby, and a great exercise in logic. While my most frequently used languages are Python and bash (a Linux shell) - I'm still exploring other languages to try to understand there benefits. I can also write BASIC, but I don't really use it -- if I need something quick, I'll just use bash; if I'm trying to do something larger, I'll use Python. My Java has gotten a little rusty from lack of use, but like riding a bike, I could probably pick it back up given some time. If they count as languages I can also work with HTML, CSS, and javascript. I have also spent some time exploring Powershell, and have a decent level of comfort with Regular Expressions.


One thing I will frequently joke to people about is my ability to write in fluent HTML. While this of course is meant as a joke, HTML (4.1 - I have figure out some of the new HTML5 concepts). While other kids were copying/pasting HTML to make there MySpace Pages look cool - I was actually trying to learn HTML. HTML was the first computer language I ever learned, and I have not lost it. HTML by itself is not hard - its a fairly static language. Making it do something more dynamic - that's the tricky part - relying on things like PHP, CGI, CSS, javascript, and other technologies - some of which I know/understand better then others.


First, I use Linux on a daily basis. Secondly, I have taken a class on Linux. Further - before I even took that class I helped tutor student's from a previous semester's Linux class. I am also currently halfway towards being CompTIA Linux+ Certified (its a 2-exam certification).

Microsoft PowerPoint

While I personally use the Open Source LibreOffice Suite, I have developed some fancy presentations in PowerPoint. (I even tried to figure out if it was possible to embed a flash .swf component into the presentation back in Office 2000 - spoiler alert: it wasn't).

I will always balk at Microsoft's decision with the fluid "ribbon' UI upgrade (people were getting lost in the menus - yeah, right - now people get lost in the ribbons), but rants aside, always remember: never read off your slide deck.

Networking (Computer)

I am fresh from graduating with an Associates Degree on this topic (IT Network Administration). I have taken courses for the CCNA, and have already completed the CCENT certification. I have also taken courses for Net+, and MCITS Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008.
