As a professional, I've been working with Mac computers for more than 20 years, and am experienced in interactive learning and leading students in learning the operating systems on Apple's Mac OS X operating systems 10.5.8 (Leopard) through 10.10 (Yosemite), as well has similar experience with the current 8.2 operating systems on iPhone and iPad hand-held devices.. I'm skilled with troubleshooting, problem solving, and the day-to-day challenges the gaining a full comprehension of new software or an application may present to students, especially in time-driven or deadline environments.

Through university and on-the-job training as a reporter, editor, and web content writer, I'm skilled in writing, editing, grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structuring. I've often recognized for being a quick-thinker, capable, energetic, and imaginative in producing a high-quality finished product from using my honed communication, and quick comprehension of technical details and correlating process among application and systems.

Being an adaptable and detail-oriented person, I can implement a broad range of tools to both demonstrate and support the fact that there can be more than one solution or answer to common technical problems, and above all, by not to giving up and challenging oneself, the extent of the lessons leaned and knowledge gained from those challenges will increase retention and avert a greater among of discouragement and frustration from further and/or advanced learning.
