About Derrall

I like to dance and play with computers.

I do workout/dance at the gym 3-4 nights a week, and go out dancing every weekend. I am very active and would love to teach any individuals anything that I've learned along the way.

I can help with most computer problems, from software to hardware and i love office products. I use them, with vba to make quizzes which i can share with you, and/or teach you how to make them yourself.

About Jason

Hello, my name is Jason. I began tutoring at Windward Community College while taking classes towards a bachelor's degree in information and computer science.

I can help with:

* C
* HTML/CSS
* Java
* JavaScript & TypeScript
* PHP
* Python

My specialty is in Web programming.

My experience started in helping iCan program participants master entry level mathematics and language arts. I also helped many students pursuing degrees in either computer science or engineering with programming and networking courses. I am now employed in the IT industry and teach what I've learned to others in the community.

I exercise patience and try to be easy going. Sessions are relaxed and productive. I understand technical material can be challenging and I try to explain things simply and clearly and I welcome questions. I look forward to he

lping you reach your goals.

I had such a good experience with Jason. He is very friendly, efficient and patient, which is essential when you learn JavaScript! We even went way over what I initially wanted to learn; he is very experienced and has impressive knowledge in front and back-end development. I have been trying to learn JavaScript by myself for a while but always ended up abandoning. I am confident that I will achieve my goals with the help of Jason. I strongly recommend learning with him! It will also be a good time!

About Rick

An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers, computer programs, websites and on the Internet ~~~ this section is about how "my experience" can serve you.

I created my first website over 25 years ago. In the 1990's, I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. (That means I'm good at trouble-shooting and putting out fires!)

Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor, web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller. My latest interest is creating and showing video.

From that first day, decades ago, I've been teaching. I've taught one-on-one, taught small groups of 5-20, and addressed a full auditorium. I was an adjunct instructor for MS Office products at a community college. When I complete chapter 3 of something then I'm prepared to shar

e what I've learned in chapter one!

We will work together online, and maintain follow-up contact by phone and email.

Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, our first session can be held the old-fashioned way: face-to-face! (I actually prefer that.) We'll meet at a study room at a library half-way between us.

I like to use analogies, and they work best with an over-40 audience. Many millenials today have never seen a dimmer switch on a car floor or carried a digital pager.

I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, on your local network and on the Internet.

_____
PS: At the end of the last century I was assembling computers by hand, but don't tell anyone. They will want to use my trouble-shooting skills to help fix their hardware, too.

This morning I have completed my lessons with Rick for Word Press. I’m ao excited to get started applying everything I learned with Rick. Can’t say enough about Rick and his teaching methods. Truly patient and his step by step teaching is excellent! Now when I view YouTube tutorials, I have an idea what is being spoken about! Was lost before Ricks classes. He goes above and beyond! Highly recommend! Thank you Rick!!

Blake is super informed and very motivated. He motivates you to work more and better. He shares everything he knows and supports you anyway he can...
He learned by him self so much and helps you do the same yourself!

About Tano

Tano Brock is a 23 year-old singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Born and raised in San Francisco, CA, Tano began studying and performing music at a young age and had an almost super-natural knack for it ever since he began banging on a drum at only a few months old. Throughout his childhood, Tano accompanied his family to various music camps in California where he was exposed to music from all over the world. At 6 years old, he began studying darbuka, a Middle Eastern drum. He then started studying piano at age 7, and at 12 began teaching himself guitar. In his early teens he started playing saxophone/clarinet, as well as exploring the world of digital recording and production. At age 18, he released his self-produced debut solo album “Bandit” (2014) - which garnered significant success and launched his career as a com

poser for synch licensing. In 2019, Tano graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree focused on Music Production & Engineering. During his time at Berklee, he explored his deep affinity with world music traditions and traveled to Turkey and the Balkans to study with master musicians, and to Cuba to record a session at a studio in La Habana Vieja. He currently leads a Balkan brass band called Sarma Brass Band, which has performed venue such as the Grand Prospect Hall in NYC and the House of Blues in Boston.
