Disabled Vet Looking for a tutor to help with linux script writing.


Hi
My name is Barry and I have lost my job as a plumber because of the ecomony. I have been going to school for two years now at Ivy Tech in Indiana. Myself, along with other vets in my Linux System Administrator Class are in need of a tutor for this class. I go to school in Valporaiso, Indiana. The V.A. is willing to pay $60.00 per hour per person. We are all are willing to be tutored as individuals or as a group. Tutoring 5 or so people at a time is $300.00 an hour, if you know what I mean! There are no tutors in this area we know about. This problem has been a on going problem with the school. You would have to sign up with V.A. so that you could get payed. You would get paid once a month. There are serveral vets in this area that need help and it would generate alot of money for someone out of work. You must be qualified by having experience, you don't have to be a teacher with a teaching degree.

Barry McGowan

Please feel free to call my house

Hey Barry - welcome to LQ.
Note: it is a very bad idea to hand out your personal phone. Instead, set up a private email in your profile. Members know to contact you by private message, and you can swap details there. Otherwise you risk stuff like identity theft and just plain annoying phone calls from anti-linux trolls.


Would your group be willing to be tutored by remote teaching methods?
This could be set up real-time on a schedule - your first lesson would be setting this up.
This would also be a lot cheaper than face-to-face, and allow you to draw from an international pool.

You should realise you are over-paying.

Specific questions would be answered free of charge and most linux geeks would give you a group discount. I understand a night-school tutor would expect $100-200 per lesson for example. There are also a lot of tutorials at different levels online - including some video tutorials. You are encouraged to sample these too.

And, there is are Indiana GNU/Linux Users Groups.

... they will know who to contact in your area.

Hi Simon,
Thank You replying. I don't know what real time is. I am willing to be tutored anyway I can get it. But, let me check the url's you gave me. Thank you for warning me about my phone #, it is my trash phone just like my trash email account I use for ordering things online and not to mention, It is not my real name on the phone account. Thanks for lookin out for me. The $60.00 price tag is what the V.A. will pay, it doesn't come out of our pockets and if it does they reimburst us the first month until the account is setup. If I don't get back with you It means we have found a tutor. God Bless! Barry

No worries - I should have known a veteran would be more with-it - but it is better to err on the side of being helpful even if it ain't needed.

FYI: real time is a computer term which refers to things happening in the order and manner they appear - like having a conversation in real life. The alternative is something like e-mail or a forum like this one - where a reply may take hours, days or weeks, yet you read one after another. It is also possible to edit an older post "in response to" a later reply. I figured you wanted a situation where you did not have to wait for an answer to your questions.

Gnu/linux is very empowering - people seldom need lots of tutoring before they find they can figure stuff out for themselves. Good luck - let us know how you got on.
