Creative, respectful and timeline driven are my best qualities and I love teaching computer skills to my family, friends and co-workers. Basically, the majority of my downtime is spent playing with WordPress plugins or spinning some neat code into a fun website for my own amusement. I have worked in an office environment for the past decade doing graphic design and website maintenance. Google Analytics, Excel, Magento and SiteRocker came with the territory of joining the marketing team with my current company. I know how to create, update, advertise with and write for current social media resources, eg. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr and YouTube. I value gratitude and respect in my work environment and love learning new things in the technology world. In addition to my formal front end training, I have recently started working with Ruby on Rails and SQL (within the past 2 years) but find it very easy to use.

I attended college with a Graphic and Web Design curriculum. I use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver on a daily basis. I have helped many start up business and local charity or park district organizations generate websites and mailers as well as the flyers and pamphlets for use during the event. I have taught many individuals the basics of Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite and basic computer functionality.

Dreamweaver

I went to college for graphic and web design, graduated and immediately immersed myself in multiple paths since. I have certifications in website publishing, best practices and with every new advancement have remained self taught. HTML5, CSS3 and its ancestors are all very familiar to me. I utilize Adobe Dreamweaver as my preferred software for website development. My years of graphic design make me a one stop shop for website building. With Adobe Dreamweaver I have completed multiple website re-design and new projects for clients ranging from volunteer to corporate.

Graphic Design

I attended college with a Graphic and Web Design curriculum. I have been in the graphic design industry since Adobe CS2 software and have kept up with every new releases advanced features. On a daily basis I work in the graphic design industry using InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop for web and print. I have over 8 years of professional office experience using these tools and have recently acquired many SEO and Marketing Coordinator tools. Great with poster, envelope, stationary, banner and marketing pamphlet print materials. Loads of experience in quick turn around for simple websites and advertising elements.

Handwriting

I have helped many younger family members work on their handwriting for school. Being a lefty myself, I have had years of experience making my own handwriting legible. I taught at an after school program and helped many kids to learn write and improve their handwriting for homework.

Microsoft Windows

I have been maintaining a windows PC since "Windows 98" through the current "Windows 8". I know how to navigate the file directory, run the CMD prompt, install software securely, set up browsers, recover a system and transfer files onto another system. I also have experience creating remote desktop connections and VPN logins for corporate and personal use.

Study Skills

I was a caregiver to children for many years. I can help anyone improve their study skills by focusing their attention or discovering which learning style they most benefit from. I have had success in guiding many children and adults in simple study tips and note taking. Memory skills, note taking skills and test prep skills are my specialty.

Web Design

I prefer to teach the value of being W3C compliant. I have several formal certifications in Website Design from Harper College. There are many way to approach a website project based on the clients needs, industry standards and competitive attractiveness and all of those will be included in my lessons. I strive to make all online based content scalable for tablet, mobile and desktop. I also have real-world experience in Social Media Marketing, SEO, and Copywriting.
