Introduction: My goal is to help you to meet your business, personal, or non-profit needs, via a context of technology. - Always a FREE consultation. - We help you articulate your goals, based on your needs. - A commitment to your your needs being met. Technology Consulting: - Technology consulting is an effort of helping people and businesses, not of choosing or making technologies. This comes out of the goal to help. I have fifteen years experience in software support and development, and a couple years experience teaching, in computer software and programming, as well as in ESL and school subjects. My technology experience includes Java, PHP, Python, JavaScript; MS Excel, VB, Data Analysis; setting up Wiki systems, managing technology for non-profit groups. Computer Programming and other lessons: I have taught at a Full-Stack development coding school, as well as in other non-profit computer applications and computer literacy educational projects. I seek to work with my students' learning style and background, in order to provide an effective tutoring experience. I enjoy teaching, and I am glad to help you learn, even if this means fielding calls when you need assistance.

Peter created an excel tool for me for work. I asked hundreds of people.. no joke hundreds.. I posted it on every social media platform so did my sister asking people if they knew how to create an excel sheet that I could copy and paste a webpage and it would only pull the data I needed from it and get rid of the rest. He was able to create me one that consolidated all of the data I needed. And it works flawlessly! He was responsive and professional and nice. His help has made my life/job SOOO much easier. He was also patient when I ran into struggles. I am so thankful and grateful for his help! Thank you peter!

I am a tennis teacher by trade. I was looking for a teacher who could teach me basic computer skills to start. Peter is very informative and patient. Peter also has taken the time to lay out a plan to help me set and achieve future goals. I find Peter not only informative but enjoyable to work. I look forward to continued lessons with Peter.

Highly recommend, Working with Peter was a smooth process. He was responsive, professional and knowledgeable on all coaching topics needed within the database field of SQL in oracle, SMSS, excel, and many other topics. The flexibility and good communication Peter has also made it a great experience working together! Learning SQL, excel and other technologies can be much, but having someone with so much years of experience makes the difference! I was able to gain insight on DDL & DML, data definition language and data manipulation language. Often times, different software‘s have slightly different commands and translating them from one to the other was the challenge however Peter had experience and familiarity with this. If there was cumbersome task that wasn’t able to be solved on the spot,a resolution or feedback was given back in no more than two days (AT MOST). Highly recommend !
