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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
