I am an experienced geographic information systems (GIS) specialist and archaeologist living in Fort Collins, Colorado. I can teach you anything you'd like to know about GIS, as well as enable proficiency with prevailing GIS software and technology. I have graduate certificate from Northern Arizona University in GIS, and have been doing GIS work professionally for six years. I also have a bachelor's degree with a double major from Western Carolina University in Anthropology and English - Professional Writing. I have been practicing archaeology for nearly 10 years. I would be happy to catch you up to date on archaeological methods, theory, history, and technology.
Do you have a burning desire to create striking and informative maps? Will the knowledge of GIS give you a heads up in your chosen profession? Have you ever wanted to know how to flintknap your own arrowheads (or projectile points, as we archaeologists refer to them)? If so, please contact me about setting up a personalized tutoring schedule.
While earning my undergrad degree, I worked with the University Learning Center and tutored students in anthropology and archaeology. I found that everyone learns in their own way, at their own pace. I will do my best to arrange our tutoring sessions so as to maximize efficiency and knowledge retention.
For GIS tutoring, I will be following the basic framework laid out in the GIS Tutorial 1-3 by ESRI Press, as well as more advanced techniques as they are called for. The only way to learn how to use GIS software is to actually sit down and explore its capabilities. I have access to the necessary software, and will hold hands-on sessions to bring the student to a proficient level of working knowledge.
