Powerpoint is a useful tool for creating presentations to be shown to a group, or for generating powerful handouts to support a talk or lecture.
Powerpoint is merely a tool. Just as a hammer and nails are used by a master carpenter to build a structure, simply knowing how to hammer nails does not mean a good structure will be built. There needs to be a good plan, properly followed. For your presentation, that's the content and organization of your thoughts.
I have written and delivered lectures at a university, talks at social clubs and business meetings, and pitches as parts of successful promotional or sales efforts. In each instance I have created an appropriate Powerpoint presentation to support it.
If you simply need help learning how to use the program, I can help. But I'm also here to help you shape a presentation that is informative, entertaining, coherent and compelling.
Microsoft Word is the standard word processing application for business and academia. Whether you are simply trying to understand the basic concept of word processing in general, or need advanced help in mastering all of its intricacies, I would be delighted to work with you.
My experience in assisting people with Word ranges from introductory classes and exercises through editing and publishing manuscripts and doctoral dissertations.
Whether you are struggling with formatting a personal letter, creating form letters and using mail merge, or need to use footnotes, end notes, and tables of contents, I am ready and eager to help!
