About Cindi

I recently retired from the State as an Information System Systems Analyst, which is a fancy name for "Desktop Support". I have 30+ years of office experience and am proficient in Microsoft Suite and many other software programs (Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Lightroom, HTML, SharePoint and others).

What I liked most about my job was helping people. I love the relationships I made over the years, as it was my job to physically go to the person's desk and help them with a multitude of computer problems; both hardware and software. The job became more "streamlined" which, to me lost the personal touch of human assistance.

What makes me an outstanding tutor is that I love helping people. The staff I used to work with and I became a 'family'.

No question is 'silly' and if I can help connect the pieces, I'd love to help!

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 have worked for a PC administration for staff of 200. And I maintained Web and SharePoint sites. I have also trained staff on program applications, network data storage, and file sharing methods. Plus, I have participated in equipment & software procurement; recommended PC equipment for future leasing and/or purchasing; installed, de-installed, relocated and repaired PC hardware and software; performed PC equipment refresh, maintained inventory of hardware/software licenses; installed software and hardware upgrades; evaluated and train on new software. In addition, I have coordinated and implemented networking of division PCs and printers; provided support and assistance to PC users to solve PC network or software related problems and issues; ensured security of hardware and software including security, performed data backup, and virus protection; audit PCs for authorized software installations.

Microsoft Outlook

I have over 10 years experience as a Personal Computer Administrator. I have experience as both a user and an Administrator with Outlook. I have created new user accounts, shared accounts, and have managed both. I often assisted staff with group calendars and meetings.

Microsoft Windows

I have over 10 years experience as a Personal Computer Administrator. I have experience as both a user and an Administrator with Windows XP, Windows 2007, Windows 2013 and Windows 10. Before rolling out any of the above mentioned versions, it was the job of the Personal Computer Admin to test before deploying to the staff of 100+. This was typically done in stages so that we could find any issue before making a full roll-out. Most users do not understand how Windows works hand in hand with all computer software, but with my background I was able to assist hundreds of users.

Knowledgeable and very helpful

Cindi helped me with a few areas in PowerPoint that I had been struggling with. She showed me one strategy that will literally cut my time in half for putting together my very technical presentations. I plan to have Cindi help with with other software programs like Word and Excel. Highly recommend!
