I originally came from the Silicon valley where even the 4 year olds are computer literate.

Each system is a bit different and there always seems to be at least a small learning curve involved.
I am well versed in designing basic websites using inexpensive, integrated programs that take you from start(designing and laying out)to finish (uploading your new site on the internet)such as WebEasy and SohoLaunch.
For more ambitious students, I can help you with designing custom interfaces using Adobe Photoshop and later, Dreamweaver. During this process, I can also teach you about html code and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) When finished you will learn how to create a user-friendly, customized website that all of the major browsers can work with!
