My name is Luz and my passion is computers and Information Technology. For me, it is very satisfying to be able to teach other persons that are willing to learn computers, and I enjoy a lot training people face-to-face.

I can teach people of all ages, including seniors that want to learn computers, from basic, to intermediate and advanced levels.

For students with basic level, my computer skills include: Windows (XP, Vista, 7 and 8), MS Office (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint); using the Internet to search any information, use E-mail, Skype, Social Media/Facebook. I can teach you how to use all of the tools that are built into Windows, how to change configuration settings to personalize a computer, and anything else that the student wants to learn.

For more advanced students, I can also train in Hardware and Software issues; Technical skills to improve performance of computers and to fix them; How to fix a virus, spyware and malware in general; Networking setup and troubleshooting (wired and wireless); Improving speed of computers using different tools (Defragmentation, Disk Cleanup); and Cloud Computing (OneDrive, Dropbox), within others.

I graduated in December, 2011 of Networking Services Technology with an A.S. from Broward College. During the time that I was studying, I also worked in the campus as a work-study employee in the Computer Lab of the Computer & Engineering Department, tutoring students of Computer Literacy mostly in Microsoft Office applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint (2007, 2010) and others.

I am fully bilingual (English, Spanish).
