Milwaukee Area Technical College (IT-Netwoking)
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 in JAVA or Bash (Linux) - I know pieces of python, perl, Ruby, and am trying 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. 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
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.
While I continue to explore other languages (at this moment, that would include C++), JAVA will always be my second language (3rd if you count HTML). I took a semester of JAVA in High school, but it literally wasn't until a year or so after I was done with the class that the benefits and point of Object Oriented programming began to make sense to me. Point is: I'm familiar with JAVA on a more practical level, I'm not a Computer Science major.
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).
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.
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.
