Approved subjects are in bold.

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! I really enjoy teaching people the specific features they need to learn in order to "get the job done," AND I like to throw in useful tips and tricks to make things easier and faster!

Grammar

A while back, a friend asked me to teach her grammar because she hadn't retained what she learned in school. It was a great experience because I was able to share my knowledge and help my friend improve her writing. There were some questions that came up that I didn't know the answers to, so I did some research and found out. I love being challenged by my students, especially when it results in being able to learn new things.

HTML

I taught basic HTML (hypertext markup language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) classes for several years, and now I now use HTML every day in my work. I enjoy writing HTML and then viewing the page to see if it turned out the way I was expecting. I also use editing tools to save time when I need to edit large HTML files. I can teach you how to get started with HTML, how to create Web pages, and - most important - how to troubleshoot your HTML. Regardless of where the actual error was made in the markup, the page can look wonky in a completely different location, so it's a bit like a treasure hunt to find the mistake and fix it!

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 Windows

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. Everyone who uses a computer can benefit from learning about Windows. I can show you how to change your Display settings, create shortcuts, manage your files (and be able to find them when you need them!), customize your Start menu, and use other Windows 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.
