I have many years experience both using and training others in various computer packages. I can help the newest beginner master the basics, or help a more experienced user discover new functionality. Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook are the most in-demand applications in today's business environments, and I can help you get up to speed, quickly. I also have many years experience working with HTML on Dreamweaver and Frontpage, and I can help you learn the basics of creating your own web pages.
I am currently a Computer Graphic Arts instructor at a school with branches in Monsey, NY and Brooklyn. I teach In Design, Illustrator and Photoshop, and several of my students have gone on to secure professional positions.
I am including a syllabus of topics that I include in my instruction.
