MAC TUTORING
I know Macs inside and out, and I'm good at teaching people of any age how to use them. I've become the "go-to" person for everyone I know to help them with their Mac needs. Mainly because I enjoy doing it. Most people don't.

I offer private tutoring sessions by appointment in a multitude of skills such as:

Setting Up User accounts
Setting Up Email
Applications and Internet settings
Back up programs and schedules
Printers and other peripherals (wireless and hardwired)
Basic Networking
Microsoft Office
Apple iLife and iWork suites
Creating multi Operating System environments
Setting Up an iPhone or iPad
Web & Graphics Applications - Adobe Creative Suite

PHOTOGRAPHY
I was also a professional photographer for Discovery Channel and others and can teach students anything they want to know from the fundamentals of how cameras work to advanced shooting techniques.

Finally learn how to take pictures with your DSLR camera with confidence and predictability. I will teach you how shutter speed, aperture and ISO work together to create an exposure. You’ll also learn about your camera’s light meter, how it thinks, how to read it, what its drawbacks and advantages are and how to use it to figure out your settings.

Students will also learn about shooting modes, file formats, resolution, memory cards, electronic flash, white balance and downloading images to your computer, simple enhancing, preparing photos for email or websites, printers and selecting digital image-editing software.

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 am completely comfortable teaching and troubleshooting anything on a Mac. I have taken Macs apart and put them back together again. If I can't figure it out or help you, then there's no charge.

Photography

I have been a professional photographer. Clients include Discovery Channel, ABC, MGM, Learning Channel. My photo website is available upon request.
