Math and English/Writing/Vocabulary Tutor for K-9th grade students

Regarding DOS, I provided computer support at Systat in the late 80's using DOS based computers. Most of the support issues related to needed changes to a user's config.sys file and autoexec.bat file. I took a formal class at Oakton C.C. in DOS and received an A grade. I also took a formal refresher class in DOS at the College of DuPage and received a B grade. I have been using personal computers since 1986. I owned both a 286 and a 386 computer running DOS. I am A+ Comptia Certified; and the majority of my test related to DOS and the use of its operating system. In addition, I formally [more]

Math, Computer Science, and Music Tutor

I have worked as a software engineer in the financial industry for the past fourteen years. The majority of that time has been spent on systems using the Microsoft Windows/DOS operating system. I also have trained new employees on the complex systems that I have worked on, which were built for this operating system. Utilizing my experience from my career and courses that I took in college and graduate school, I am capable of tutoring anyone at any level on this operating system (beginners included and welcome!).

Patient tutor of Algebra, Trig, Chemistry, Physics, and more

I have worked with MS-DOS ever since I started using computers in 1994. It used to be a powerful backbone system, but in later versions of Windows is less and less important. But that doesn't mean it's not still useful! I can teach you the basics of DOS and help you learn how to use its commands to accomplish small tasks and begin to develop batch files. If you need expert programming help, you will need to find someone who has more of that experience. But if you want to clear up the fog on the subject or get over some intimidation, I can help!

Computer Programming/Web Design and General Computing

I learned DOS after learning Unix. I used to boot DOS based computers using 5.25" floppy disks. Originally using machines with only one floppy drive, then moving on to machines with two floppy drives (usually one to boot the machine and the other to read from and/or write to. I am also familiar with writing batch files and used to create/update config.sys and autoexec.bat files. I enjoy the challenge of finding just the right way to communicate a concept to a student so they understand it. I've been working in the information technology field for over 25 years and continue to enjoy the eve [more]

Helping Humans With Computers Is My Passion

I cut my teeth on DOS with the IBM XT Clone my stepfather got me for Jr. High Graduation. That was about 30 years ago. I started out with dual 5.25" floppies and had to beat bears back with my *10* Function Key keyboard while dabbling in GW-BASIC up hill, both ways. I've finally moved over full time to a *nix box (Ubuntu) a few years ago, after dabbling in Linux since about '97. BATch files were my playground. I knew DOS so well because of how frustratingly limited it was, even with upgrades over the years. Frankly, I'm surprised this is offered as a subject that anyone would need/want t [more]

Adjunct Professor and Professional Tutor at Davenport University

I started with computer during the early years, when DOS was just about the only thing there was. I have had to build new PC's, write/tweak Autoexec.Bat and Config.Sys files. This was a requirement when you added or removed new hardware/software prior and in the early years of Windows. Edlin and Debug were my friends, and I laughed at DOS Shell. I am currently an Adjunct Professor and Professional Tutor in Technology at a local university, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Game Design and Simulation. Recently I received my Master's degree in Game Design. My Associate's degree in is Comp [more]

I have published 20 books of poetry, and taught 3 year olds to Ph.Ds.

I have taught DOS at Madison College for ten years. I also worked at Radio Shack for 23 years as a computer specialist. Some of the DOS commands are still embedded in almost all versions of Windows. The most useful one is chkdsk/f which will fix computer errors. At the college level, I have taught German (native), creative writing, theater, English, history, computer science, and journalism for 13 years. In the last 18 years, I have been a substitute teacher from pre-school through high school. I have been to Europe 15 times, and written editorials in the Milwaukee newspapers and poems in [more]

Math, Science, Computer Tutor in Far North Suburbs

I have been using DOS since the early days of DOS 3. I have written batch programs to automate tasks as needed. I still prefer to use the command line available even in today's modern Windows 8 systems when I need to get something done quickly and/or need more control than the GUI offers. I have been tutoring independently since graduating high school. In high school, I was selected twice to teach the class when the teacher was unavailable. My best subject is Math. I was consistently at the top of my class in math in high school and college, achieving a 32 in math on my ACT and a composite sco [more]

I have been working with DOS since DOS 2.0. I have written innumerable DOS scripts in both academia and business. I have worked in the IT field for over 20 years, using DOS even into the Windows era. I have always been good at math and computers. In junior high school, I started competing in math competitions and doing very well, usually placing in the top 25-100 in the state of Michigan throughout high school. I tutored math in college, and am able to find many ways to help a student solve a problem or learn a concept. My favorite areas of math include algebra, trigonometry, calculus, differe [more]
