Experienced Teacher Ready to Help You Achieve Academic Excellence

I have many years of experience with Linux as a user, developer, and system administrator, including 12 years as Test and Tools Architect and then as Director of QA at Dorado/Corelogic. Prior to working with Linux, I had many years of experience with Unix, including 5 years working at Sun doing QA work that involved a lot of scripting and some programming, always working with Sun's version of Unix. I wrote an article on "Varieties of Unix" that was published. (In case any readers don't know it, Linux is an open source operating system so similar to Unix that it is often described as a Unix clo [more]

Patient Tutor with a Track Record of Successful Students

Linux is a very unique operating system that is popular among the Computer Science community, but not the general public. At home, I have a desktop that I installed Linux onto and use regularly. I have noticed that many of the students think Linux is sub-par in comparison to Mac OS or Windows; this is why my part of my Linux tutoring approach analyzes its features. However focusing on features is not enough, which is why I focus on how the open source community developed, security, and what it means when software is "free." [more]

Patient and Encouraging Academic Coach

I use several versions of the Linux OS at home and in my business, including Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, and Puppy. I have set up my home computer a "triple boot system," meaning that I can load either Windows or one of two Linux systems at start-up, depending on my needs. I can assist new Linux users and those interested in using Linux for the first time to get acquainted with this system, including using trial (Live) versions from USB drives or CDs, loading a Linux system onto one's computer as the main OS, and making the transition from Windows/MAC to Linux.

Committed to your learning success!

Most of the software that I have sold in my career has been installed on Linux-based OS systems. I also have experience on a number of other platforms such as SunOS, Mac OS X, Windows, etc. My experience level is considered "Advanced"; i.e. I can administer these machines BACKGROUND I am an experienced technical professional executive who enjoys coaching and mentoring. I thrive when I see the "light bulb turned on" for my students that successfully grasp concepts that were once very challenging to them. I go out of my way to make sure that all my students are fully comprehending the subject [more]

Reading/writing, GED/TASC/ASVAB Certified, APA/MLA, Computer Literacy

As a computer consultant, I work with Linux software installation and configuration. I assist clients with obtaining and updating Linux-based computer systems and networks. I troubleshoot software/operating problems for workable solutions, as most Linux systems can have multiple possible configurations because of the nature of the open system. If you're struggling with reading and writing skills, look no further. Past and present students feel comfortable and build self-esteem under my tutelage. I learn about the student's needs and learning style, then provide materials and encouragement d [more]

Experienced in computer engineering and programming topics, PhD

Mostly I learned to work with linux during the time I was student in university as a bachelor, master and PhD student. Later on I established my knowledge of linux and commands by reviewing a reference book. As a Software engineer these days I need to connect to a linux server and run my programs in which sometimes I need to take advantage of my linux knowledge to accelerate and automate some tasks. It took me a long journey to graduate as PhD of Computer System and Software from University to California, Irvine. During these years, I learned many subjects by taking courses, doing projects and [more]
