About Terrie

I graduated with a 4.0 in 2001 from Keiser University with an Associate's Degree in Computer Graphics and Design. I use Word for text related documents, Outlook for mail & calendars; PowerPoint for presentations, Publisher for brochures, invites, posters, flyers, postcards, greeting cards, signs, etc. as well as Photoshop to edit images for media publications including website updates.

I have created many videos - check out a few on my video page - using Windows MovieMaker, and PowerPoint - saving them as Windows Media Video files. If you want to learn how to use these programs, I would love to teach you.

I work part-time at a real estate company as a Marketing Assistant and am available for tutoring in the afternoons after 1:30 p.m. In this position, I design marketing media including brochures, flyers, postcards and train real estate agents how to use Microsoft programs including Publisher. I am currently an admin for our real estate website and FACEBOOK pages updating those pages on a daily or as-needed basis.

A former instructor for Neighborly Senior Services, I taught Word, Notepad, Publisher, and e-mail applications. I am also a freelance designer using Photoshop and Illustrator to create designs for banks, churches and private clientele.

I have had students young and old and have a lot of patience (I was the oldest sister in a family of 9 children growing up)!

In 9 hours, Frank went from a student who knew nothing about Excel 2007 to a comfortable Excel user. He created formulas and turned them into graphs. He created an address worksheet and used it to mail merge to labels in Word. Frank will be using Excel to update and decipher spreadsheets at his new job in North Carolina. I am so happy I was able to bring him to a comfortable learning place - where he feels confident that he will capably do anything this new job demands. I am proud of him and his achievement in such a short time. Frank was an amazing student and I wish him every success.

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 Illustrator

Illustrator is a vector graphics program that has palettes and tools similar to PhotoShop - they are both Adobe programs. Use Illustrator when you want to create a unique graphic and resize it without pixelation.

Adobe InDesign

My associates degree in computer graphics and design included the Adobe Suite: InDesign, PhotoShop and Illustrator. I graduated in 2001 with a 4.0 gpa and can supply my college transcripts as credentials if needed. InDesign is used for digital publishing and utilizes palettes for color, font, layout options, etc. similar to PhotoShop and Illustrator. PhotoShop is best for image manipulation purposes. Illustrator is a vector graphics program designing beautiful printable graphics that won't pixelize.

Adobe Photoshop

I graduated in 2001 (4.0) with a Degree in Computer Graphics & Design. This 2 year accelerated course included: PhotoShop, Illustrator, FLASH, Premiere, Director, GoLive, Dreamweaver, RayDream, QuarkExpress, & PowerPoint. I use some of these programs on a daily basis in my full-time job; and many programs have been useful for editing websites, etc. (which I also do in my job description).

Grammar

Let me help you with your English. I previously took courses in Writing for Children's books. I am fluent in the English language and its use.

Microsoft Excel

I have been using Excel since 1994 to create spreadsheets and organize info. I have been certified in both basic and intermediate classes. Would love to help you with the basics.

Microsoft Outlook

Outlook is an email program that may be used for inviting one or a group of attendees to a meeting. Outlook tracks the responses and details availablility for planning meetings. Outlook also stores contact information in groups and this info may be exported to Excel for use in printing labels for mailing invitations, thank yous, etc. I have been using this program since 1996 and on a daily basis in my current employment.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I LOVE PowerPoint. If you need to create a unique presentation - please call me. I can add music and animations to your presentation as well. Have been using PowerPoint to create presentations for my church's Sunday worship service for more than 10 years. The presentations are viewed weekly on the BIG video screens before and during worship.

Microsoft Publisher

I graduated in 2001 (4.0) with a Degree in Computer Graphics & Design. This two year accelerated course included: PhotoShop, Illustrator, FLASH, Premiere, Director, GoLive, Dreamweaver, RayDream, QuarkExpress, & PowerPoint. I received an A in each course. I use some of these programs on a daily basis in my full-time job; and many programs have been useful for editing websites, etc. (which I also do in my job description).

Publisher is GREAT for designing invites, posters, programs, etc. You also have the ability to save as a PDF to email documents or view on the web.

Microsoft Word

Word is great if you just want basic knowledge in word processing to create letters, posters, labels or envelopes. Information may be merged onto labels or envelopes for mailing. If designing is what you are interested in, publisher is more user friendly for invites, posters, etc. More control over inserting graphics and adding pages.

Photography

In college, basic photography was part of the digital video production classes that I enjoyed. These techniques included camera tips on lens, filters, recording formats, frame speeds, pans & zooms, subject movement,cropping, sets & costumes. Lighting principles i.e. 3 point lighting, key light, fill light, back light,bounce lighting, color, hue and saturation were also introduced.

Video Production

I graduated in 2001 with an Associates Degree in Computer Graphics & Design. That degree included video production programs such as FLASH, Director and Premiere. Microsoft MovieMaker uses the exact same concepts including importing graphics & video clips, timeline and music graphs. You most likely do not certify this program; however, several potential students have asked about video creation. A few of the videos I have created using MovieMaker are in my videos on this site. If needed, I can provide my college transcripts by email showing the video programs I have excelled in.

Web Design

I have an Associates Degree in Computer Graphics and Design which included creating web pages. Currently, I am the website administrator for the United Way of Manatee County website and make all the updates on our pages including photo galleries, HOME page animations and events, etc.
