I can help you with your computer skills. I have been teaching students (ages 6 to 75ish) to use computers since 1983. I am very patient and will help you with the skills that you want to learn. Together we can setup a plan to follow each lesson, or you can devise your own plan each lesson. You can choose how many days a week that we should work together, or we can plan a certain day and time once a week. We can work on your laptop or computer. I want you to to gain the skills you need. Let me know how I can assist you.
Excel doesn't have to be scary. Together we can create basic spreadsheet formulas and several types of charts, and format your spreadsheet to have a professional look. We will discuss terms like relative and absolute cell references, filtering, and sorting. We can insert the data and charts into Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.
I have used Outlook and Outlook Express for many years, and I know all of the features. I will be able to teach a user how to navigate throughout the program to be successful with the email program.
I love teaching people to use Microsoft PowerPoint. I have been working with the product since 1987. I have taught over 500 students how to use the presentation software, and have created many business presentations. Together, we can create a very simple presentation, or we can create a presentation with pizzazz. The most current version of PowerPoint is 2010. I also can work with you using 2003 or 2007.
I have used and trained students to use Microsoft Windows 3.1, Vista, and 7. I am proficient in creating folders and navigating through the Windows program. I have been teaching people how to use computer applications for 26 years.
Microsoft Word can be used to create business letters, research papers, flyers, brochures, resumes, and much more. I have taught hundreds of people to use Microsoft Word, and I can help you too. One of my specialties is to edit research papers formatted in APA style format.
Proofreading papers is a specialty of mine. I can help you review your paper for grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. I am also knowledgeable with APA format and teach this topic to university professors. Your instructor should review your paper for content, although I will let you know if what you have written is not clear and concise. We can work together while I review the entire paper, or we can discuss my comments after I have reviewed the paper. I look forward to helping you with your writing skills.
