About Geary

I have been tutoring individuals and businesses in all of their computer needs for over 15 years, teaching everything from setting up their computer systems to the use of various software programs. I specialize in one-on-one tutoring that benefits the students as I tailor the tutoring to fit the needs of the student. I can also instruct students in how to create a web site, from conception through building the site and how to maintain it.

Along with that, as a music director at a local community radio station, I have extensive musical knowledge of every genre of music. I have spent over 30 years within the music industry, from selling records in a used record store, to being the editor of Schwann Publications, the industry bible for recorded music. I have extensive experience both with musicians and others in the music industry such as promotions companies and record labels. Also, I am currently a music director at a 10,000 watts radio station.

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 InDesign

I have been using InDesign to create brochures and various other documents since Adobe first introduced InDesign. I actually used it before that when the program was called Pagemaker. I've been creating newsletters for local organizations using InDesign.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been able to utilize Photoshop for the past 17 years when creating websites, newsletters, brochures, and just working with images in general. Over the years I have been able to take advantage of the various tools Photoshop provides to improve the quality of my work. I have tutored graphic illustrators in the use of Photoshop for over 15 years. I have also tutored small businesses in the use of Photoshop for use on their websites and some in-store promotional materials.

Dreamweaver

For the past 15 years I have been using Dreamweaver to aid in building websites. I love the functionality of Dreamweaver, not only in the WYSIWYG aspects of the program, but also in the code writing side. Dreamweaver doesn't include extraneous code when placing items onto the page. Dreamweaver makes it simpler to add items to a page and to edit the code when needed.

General Music

From the first wax cylinder recordings, to today's modern use of digital music files and all manner of musical media in between (ie cd's, vinyl, cassette tapes, reel to reel tapes), the history of music is exceptionally broad. I have been a DJ for the past 10 years at a community station and have been working within the music industry for over 30 years. My knowledge base for general music is broad and varied.

Macintosh

My first computer was an Apple II, and then we got a G4 MAC, and now I work with an iPad. I have learned all the ins and outs of the MAC system and have been tutoring individuals on MACs for the past 17 years.

Microsoft Windows

I have been tutoring individuals and businesses in the use of their computers, both MAC and windows machines for over 18 years. I troubleshoot all computer problems, including any issues with Windows. I am very proficient in the use of Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP, ME.

Music History

As a music director at a local community radio station, I have extensive musical knowledge of every genre of music. I have spent over 30 years within the music industry, from selling records in a used record store, to being the editor of Schwann Publications, the industry bible for recorded music. I have extensive experience both with musicians and others in the music industry such as promotions companies and record labels. Also, I am currently a music director at a 10,000 watts radio station.

Networking (Computer)

For the past 19 years I have been setting up networks for individuals and small businesses here on Cape Cod. I started with wired networks and have been doing wireless networks exclusively for the past 7 years. I know the ins and out of every router and can troubleshoot any network issues that may crop up.

Web Design

There are many elements to a successful web design, such as use of photos and text to highlight the important aspects of a site. I have been writing html code for websites for over 15 years now. I use Homesite or Dreamweaver to build the sites. I have a background in art that allows me to design sites that are clean and fresh in appearance. Also, I am able to use my Javascript knowledge to enhance websites.
