I felt very bad about the situation and will do a better job in the future to not only look at miles away, but travel time. I was hoping we could make it a 2 hour lesson to match my total drive time. I'm sorry this didn't work out. Karen

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.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is a fun program but can be confusing with so many options ... but I can make it seem easy! I've used Photoshop for more than 10 years with an e-commerce business editing my photos and making graphics and animation. Learn how to make photos look good, crop, color, affects!

Dreamweaver

I have 10 years experience working on websites and writing simple HTML. I've used Dreamweaver with most of my websites and can teach you how to read the most commonly used HTML or find out how to "see it" on the website page.

Teaching the basics of Dreamweaver using an HTML page. Setting up tables, lists, inserting photos and uploading to a hosting site.
Working with Heading settings, fonts, background colors and page settings.
Knowledge of SEO - keywords, meta tags, image alt tags.
Making a website flow page by page and assure the user can use the website with no deadends.

General Computer

Do you need help with the basics of your computer?

E-mail
Internet
Organization
Anti-Virus or Malware help
Learning your way around your C drive - your programs or available space - how about getting some files to an external hard drive?

I have been working on computers my entire adult life ... 30 years or so ... and can teach you the basics with easy-to-understand instructions.

I can teach you to use the internet, copy, paste, favorites, etc...

There is no dumb question. Every question has an answer.

HTML

I have 10 years experience working on websites and writing simple HTML. I've used Dreamweaver with most of my websites and can teach you how to read the most commonly used HTML or find out how to "see it" on the website page.

Macintosh

iPad -
I have over a year of working on, playing with and using my personal iPad. I use for keeping track of my calendar, lists of things to do, checking the news, games, photoshop, evernote and more. I can show you how to search for the latest apps, learn to use them and check your settings. So .. the basics and beyond!

Apps - Adding and Using
Your Settings - learn where to find things.
iBooks - Have you downloaded your How-To book?
Newstand - Do you subscribe to a magazine? They most likely have a digital edition that you can access for free from your iPad. Also, there are other apps for reading magazines and news.
Do you have a cellular plan on your iPad? If so, how many MB can you use or GB?
Using the calendar and notes - copy and pasting.
Internet via the iPad - browsing and adding your bookmarks.
Photos - How to sync to your iTunes on your home computer. How to organize your photos.
Would you like to adjust your photos? Use Photoshop Express - I can show you how to do this.
Mail via your iPad - are you receiving e-mails ... do you want to?
These are things I can teach you on your iPad.

Microsoft Word

I have years of experience using Microsoft Word. I use it for simple letters, photo layouts, tables, changing layout and margins.
I can make learning Word easy to understand!
I'm very detail oriented and patient, so learning will be easy.

Photography

I've always been the family member that is always taking pictures. When the world changed to digital photography, boy, you could take tons of pictures and not worry about film!

If you need help taking your pictures to your computer, from your computer to an e-mail or posting on a social media site, or getting some developed from Costco, Shutterfly, etc.. Cropping, fixing some color issues, in a program like Photoshop, I can help you!

I take pictures daily for two blogs and an e-commerce site, crop them, fix them, get them uploaded to many different sites.

Web Design

My husband and I started an E-Commerce business in 2002. I built the website myself and incorporated it into the E-Commerce software.

We sold that business and I've started another E-Commerce business using Dreamweaver to design my pages and incorporate them into the E-Commerce Software.

I also have a personal website I design in Dreamweaver using Photoshop for my graphics and photo editing.

I have two blogs that are in Wordpress Software and am familiar with that program.

I feel I am very good at the organization and flow of a website or blog to make it easy for the visitor to navigate through.

I love to check a website for its Search Engine Optimization status and find so many sites that don't have this in place or which needs work. I have the knowledge of working with HTML code and Google Analytics to get a website up to speed.
