COMPUTER LESSONS: My computer lessons are designed to teach you the skills you need in this digital world! Your needs can be as simple as learning how to better utilize email or complex like learning a major software program.
I have 35 years of successful teaching experience. As a teacher I was IT leader for the district, responsible for training both students and teachers on a variety of software as well as, integrating technology in lessons. I was a 3 time recipient of the Celebration of Excellence Award from the state of CT. I am also a Certified Google Teacher, trained in NYC at Google.
I understand how apprehensive some people might be when it comes to learning new technologies. This digital world is ever changing. Besides my computer skills, one of my strengths is patience! I will never make you feel stupid or incapable of learning. My personal tutoring experience includes home-schooled children all the way to Senior Citizens! You are never too old to learn something new!
I have taught MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Google Docs, Spreadsheets, Forms, Presentations, Sites, Apps, Picasa, Adobe, Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator, OpenOffice Writer, Impress, Draw, Networking, Desktop Publishing, Word Processing basics, Facebook and much much more! I work on both the PC and Mac platforms.
MUSIC LESSONS: My life as a musician has encompassed personal performing as well as public school teaching. I started playing piano at age 8. I was spotlighted on a local television show, accompanied groups at school and community musicals. I majored in music at Western CT State University and received both a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Music Education. 28 of my 35 years in teaching included music - band chorus and general music.
I have continued my passion for music as organist - music director for a local church. I have also combined my two passions in teaching various computer programs for music educators!
