I have received three associate's degrees in computer information systems, associate's in arts, associate's in business. I have also completed my bachelor's degree in technology management through Northern Arizona University. In addition to my three associate degrees I have certifications in; web design, web development, computer information systems, general business, and general education.

I recently retired as the president of the Rho Pi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the National Honors Society at Phoenix college. I have a teaching portfolio from Lorain Community College I received my senior year for completing Teaching Education Exploration. I have referrals from teachers and instructors. I am a hands-on learner and love to show others what we can accomplish.

I better myself through bettering others and in retaining more information. Students teach without trying, as long as the tutor listens. I have tutored kindergarten to 7th grade. I have tutored students in my college classes. My degree is not in teaching because they do not get enough respect for what they try to do with the Youth of Tomorrow.

Adobe Flash

I have previous experience taking Adobe Flash at Phoenix College. I have tutored students on how to create their finals. I have also used Adobe Flash to create E-Greeting Cards.

Adobe InDesign

I have taken a semester of Adobe InDesign and feel comfortable enough to teach the program to others. I aced the course and even got offered a job in our Art Department on campus as an Art Lab Assistant. I love to see what people can design with Adobe programs.

Adobe Photoshop

I recently took Photoshop at my college and passed the course with an A. I have been using Adobe Photoshop since high school in 1999 and would love to teach it to others. I have a book for CS5 if people need to borrow it in order to teach them.

Cooking

I have been Cake Decorating since High School and was active in Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). I created my own wedding cake and have decorated for local church members and parties. I like to experiment with Cooking by going out and putting a meal together from scratch. Following a cookbook is easy.

Dreamweaver

I have taken CIS133 and CIS233 which both focus on Web Design and Development using Adobe Dreamweaver. I aced both courses and am qualified with certifications in Web Design and Web Development from Phoenix College. I used CS4 but the only true difference between that and CS6 is the layout and some newer tool options.

Elementary (K-6th)

In high school I built a teaching portfolio from K-7th grade. I have a certification of completion in the Teaching Education Exploration program from LCCC (Lorain County Community College). I have referrals from teachers that I interned with, as well as works from the students that I mentored and tutored. I have worksheets of the hours that I put in at the schools with the teachers, and their notes to me at the end of each week detailing anything that I needed to improve on. I did this for a year. I enjoyed working with younger kids.

General Computer

I am in college for Computer Information Systems. I know general computer basics and am advanced at PC operation. Mac is not my strong point, but I do know how to use one.

Microsoft Access

I have taken Access 2010 and tutored other students in the course. I passed with an A and would like to add this to my many skills.

Microsoft Excel

I have been utilizing Excel for educational purposes, previous jobs, and for accounting. I have used Excel since 7th grade, starting back before 1999. I can create a lesson plan to suit your needs.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been using PowerPoint in my education since I was in junior high school. I am excellent at creating the animation and design layouts.

Microsoft Project

I have learned how to use Microsoft Project in my Fall 2013 Semester at NAU (Northern Arizona University). I have excelled in all assignments and have a full understanding of the program. I have the memory to educate others with what I have learned. I currently have Microsoft Project 2013 installed.

Microsoft Publisher

I have utilized Microsoft Publisher for creating brochures, business cards, calendars, flyers, greeting cards, and newsletters. I am qualified to educate others on how to use Publisher to help accomplish marketing and publication goals. I am currently using version 2007 but fluent in the new 2013.

Photography

I have been into digital photography since high school back in 2003. I have over 10 years experience taking photos. In addition to taking photography courses, I have experience in portraits, family photos, landscaping, real estate, action, and event photography. Some of my work includes acting photographer at the following scenes: Latino Trailblazer Event in 2014, weddings, and promotional website freelance photographer (DSI). Photography is my way of capturing and sharing the moments other's miss.

Video Production

I have experience in the following video production programs: Adobe Premiere Pro, Pinnacle Studio 12, and Windows Live Movie Maker. I have tutored others in various programs that they personally owned or purchased because they all have similar features. I took video and audio broadcasting in high school and helped with the video production for morning announcements. In addition to video production programs; I also have the knowledge on how to upload to YouTube and Vimeo.

Web Design

I have completed my Certification in Web Design and Web Development with Phoenix College.

Yoga

I took one year of yoga in college and received an A in all of the courses. I still practice yoga in my spare time and would like to teach it to others.

Incredible! Awesome! Fast! Creative! — I honestly can't say enough about Loren! I must have e-mailed over 30 tutors asking for MS Excel 2013 help. I specifically needed someone who knew 2013, not just "Excel". (I hired someone earlier only to find out he didn't know the 2013 version, which has some significant changes never seen before.) Here I was worried about getting my assignment done in a week, yet Loren helped me in less than 1 ...
