I'm a professional and pleasant individual who has tutored students in a broad range of subjects since I was a sophomore in high school. I graduated a scholar athlete earning at least a 3.75 GPA throughout college.

I possess a California state teaching credential and have tutored several technology subjects including Photoshop, Illustrator, Microsoft's complete Office Suite and Website Design. If I am a little rusty on a subject, I have no problem with boning up on it before a lesson. If I can learn it,I can teach it!

I am strong, independent, punctual, respectful of different cultures and religions and I like almost everyone I meet. If I tutor you or your child, I will be serious and diligent. Each of the students I have tutored have dramatically improved in the selected subject matter.

I am constantly studying something new and am excited by many subjects. This, I find, is contagious to the students!

Adobe Photoshop

I have a broad range of graphics design experience including Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and newer versions. I have devised easy to understand tutorials for beginners and can guide you through the vast plethora of options and functions in the programs. Photoshop is an excellent way to create just about anything from just about anything.

I am also a patient teacher and have worked with many different types of people. I posses a teaching credential and have been mentoring and tutoring for more than 20 years.

Computer Science

I am a certified web specialist that has been creating websites, graphic design projects and powerpoint presentations for over five years. I have a degree in computer science. I have helped many students learn and become more comfortable using the computer and possess a California State teaching credential.


I am a certified web specialist that has designed and hand coded more than twenty five sites in Dreamweaver. I have a degree in computer science and a teaching credential, certified to teaching computer classes. In addition to Dreamweaver, I have worked extensively with the Word press interface as well as hand coding in both HTML and CSS.

General Computer

Am well versed on all basic computer components and operations. Will be able to help you select the appropriate computer, set it up, do a comprehensive tour of the system, teach you how to set up wireless, printers, scanners, download software, access the internet, send email and much more.

I can also advise you on the appropriate software for your applications, show you how to install it on your system and ultimately how to use it. I am a patient, professional and punctual individual who takes education and educating people seriously. In a very short time you will be buzzing around your computer system and being productive!

Microsoft PowerPoint

I am a college instructor who teaches Interior Design to adults and use Microsoft's PowerPoint program for every class. I created twelve different PowerPoint presentations to present subject material ranging from color theory to window coverings so am well versed on how to create and modify presentations.

Microsoft Publisher

I am well versed in Microsoft Publisher and have been working with the program for over five years. I have created many graphic projects for simple invoices, business cards and flyers and well as wireframes for websites and power point slides. I possess a valid California state teaching credential, a degree in computer science and have a flexible daily schedule to accommodate students.

Networking (Computer)

Networking your computer systems is not too difficult once you understand a few basic principles. I can teach you to connect multiple computers to a central (server) computer that shares software and peripherals like your scanner, wireless connection, printer and telephone system.

I originally came from the Silicon valley where even the 4 year olds are computer literate. I graduated from college a few years back with a degree in computer and electronic science and have been building off of that ever since. Each system is a bit different and there always seems to be at least a small learning curve involved.

Web Design

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!
