Hello!

My name is Bethany and I offer services in both computer related areas and writing/editing. I have lengthy professional experience in both. Be it understanding that brand new Mac you just purchased or spicing up a paper you have been looking at for too long, I've got you covered!

In computer use, I can tutor in learning how to use your Mac or Windows based system. Anything from emailing, editing photos, cleaning up unnecessary software, software install, applications like Word, PowerPoint, Photobooth, and iPhoto, or simply setting up your system just the way you like it-- I can help! I also specialize in helping you learn how to keep your computer "healthy" and teaching you to perform regular maintenance, like running updates and deleting unused items from your computer like web browser history, temporary files, and cookies. Virus protection can be daunting with so many options to choose from, so I am able to show you what is worth your while and how to use it, too.

In writing and editing, I am happy to proofread and assist you in any sort of writing project that needs a fresh eye. I have an extreme eye for detail and am very well educated on the various pesky rules for punctuation and grammar.

If you need computer or writing related assistance in any areas that I haven't mentioned above, just ask! I would gladly let you know if I can be of any assistance to you. Additionally, I have professional experience working with children and teens, including special needs students.

I look forward to helping you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Macintosh

I have over 5 years of personal experience using Macintosh systems, as well as professional experience working for a small-business computer solutions company. I am able to tutor in all basic functions of using a Mac, especially in getting a Windows-based user accustomed to differences in using a Mac. I have knowledge in using various Mac applications, like iPhoto, Photobooth, and iTunes. I am able to tutor on the various "tips and tricks" that are not as obvious on a Mac system.

Microsoft Outlook

I was employed at a small-business computer solutions company called Geeks IT Services in Phoenix where all of our email communications in-office were completed by Outlook. Additionally, we offered troubleshooting support for many business who relied on Outlook for their emailing. I am able to solve problems and tutor in areas related to syncing between devices (e.g., iPhone, iPod, other email clients), restoring emails, contacts, changing layout, and educating on general usage of the email client.

Microsoft Windows

In addition to 18 years of personal experience working on Windows-based systems, I was employed by a small-business computer solutions company called Geeks IT Services in Phoenix. Most of our clientele were small businesses that ran on Windows systems, but we also had many clients who needed basic troubleshooting in their homes. I am proficient in basic computer use, changing settings, downloading, installing, and maintenance. I am also very familiar with Windows software.
