I'm a professional tech trainer with extensive experience teaching hands-on computer classes in a lab environment as well as one-on-one private tutoring. For more than eleven years, I've taught Microsoft Office classes at a local nonprofit, drawing the attention of [one company] to the point that the organization sent their employees back for computer training on a continual basis.
My specialty is in Microsoft Office products (both PC and Mac): Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook. However, I also have experience in Google Docs, Sliderocket, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Dreamweaver, and Wordpress. My style is informal, personable and practical, walking you through examples to give you tangible experience. I can also tailor lessons or tutoring sessions to meet your particular needs and skill level. Here are just a few of my past students' comments:
“I liked the pace of the class and the amount of references to practical real world situations; also the individual help.” – Claudia, Intermediate Excel Computer Class (11/2010)
"Kristy is excellent at communicating the information in a clear and concise manner.” – Joan, Intro to Access Computer Class (10/2010)
“Kristy is calm and makes me feel comfortable with technology. Patient with questions.” – Lynn, Intro to Word Computer Class (10/2010)
“Kristy got straight to the point and didn’t bore me with the things I already knew.” – Teresa, Intermediate & Advanced Excel (9/2010)
“I wish I had taken this class 2 years ago. Kristy explained exactly what I needed to know.” – Maria, Advanced Excel Computer Class (1/2010)
I prefer to know a little bit about your skill level, previous experience and what you'd like to learn before we dive into a tutoring session. That allows me to teach more effectively and efficiently, preparing examples and adjusting pacing to your needs.
I look forward to meeting you!
