Are computers a mystery to you? I've spent over 20 years in the Information Technology field with an emphasis on training. I am an expert user AND trainer for MS Office products: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, Publisher, QuickBooks and more. I'm also good at figuring out how to get you set up to operate, how to get your computer to play nicely with you, and teaching you the language of the PC. I am not a technician and deal with software rather than hardware, although I can often figure out simple glitches. (If you're not sure what that means, we need to talk! :o)

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.
In training people and computers to play well together, I like to start with the basics. What is a PC? How do you turn it on? Can you blow it up? What do you do to make the software work? What is the difference between software and hardware? What is a cursor? What does right click mean and what does a left click do? What do I do when it yells at me?
Before you actually get in and try to type a document, enter your sales on a spreadsheet or set up your presentation slides, you need to know how to communicate with the computer itself. What I teach is that new "language" you need in order to do that effectively. And it's fun too!
I have used and taught basic QuickBooks for years, as well as doing setup and data entry for clients. If all you need is the basics on setting up your Company, setting up your Bank accounts and credit cards, I can help you do that. It is a wonderful program for tracking household, personal or business expenses; perfect for helping your do your taxes! Or, you can give the Quick Books reports to your accountant and let them do it. :o)
