Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Computer

I am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and a Microsoft Office Specialist Master Instructor, and I've taught every level from beginners to advanced users. I am very patient, and I work to create a fun environment for learning how to use the computer and its programs!

HTML

When I worked for a training company, I taught HTML classes, and I now use it every day in my work. It's fun to write the HTML (hypertext markup language) code and then view the page to see what you've created. HTML is used to format text (bolding, font color, etc.) and paragraphs (centered, bulleted/numbered lists, etc.), and it can be used to create tables. Tables can be used to hold data, and they can also be used to place text and pictures in the desired locations on the Web page. I will teach you how to use HTML to create Web pages and - more important - how to troubleshoot HTML errors, which can be a difficult task.

Microsoft Excel

I have been teaching Excel for over 15 years, and I really enjoy it! I have taught introductory, intermediate, and advanced Excel, as well as Excel VBA. I can help you with Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, and Excel for the Mac.

Microsoft Outlook

I have over 15 years of experience teaching Microsoft Outlook to all kinds of students: administrative assistants, executives, doctors, teachers, etc. I teach all versions of Outlook, including 2007 and 2010. If you need help using Outlook at work or at home, I will be glad to teach you what you need to know.

Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint can be a lot of fun! I'll show you how to create a basic presentation with bullet points and ClipArt. You can also learn how to use Custom Animation and set up templates to use over and over again. I'm a PowerPoint expert, and I'll be glad to help you learn the skills you need to put together effective presentations.

Microsoft Publisher

I have been using and teaching Microsoft Publisher (versions 2003, 2007, and 2010) in a corporate setting for over seven years. I can teach students to create posters, fliers, newsletters, tri- and quad-fold brochures. And I can help them use the Master Page; insert pictures, ClipArt, tables, and charts; and manage the layout of a publication. I enjoy working with Publisher, and I enjoy teaching other people to make use of all of its features.

Microsoft Word

I have been teaching Microsoft Word for over 16 years to learners at all levels of experience, from beginners to advanced students. If you'd like to learn how to format a letter or set up a Mail Merge or anything in between, I'll be glad to show you how!

Proofreading

Proofreading requires not only perfecting grammar, punctuation, and usage, but also improving readability. I'll help you learn grammar and punctuation, and I'll do my best to make it interesting. Once you master the basics, you'll be able to focus on what you want to write instead of worrying about the commas.

If you use the Title field for Wiki articles (in addition to the actual file name), you won't be able to use special characters (&, %, *, $, for example) in the Title of a Wiki article. The article will appear properly, but every time someone tries to access it, a blank message box will appear (not very professional looking!). If this occurs, just remove any non-text characters from the... read more
