Microsoft PowerPoint,

Microsoft PowerPoint

Many students today are visual learners, so I often use PowerPoint to introduce a lesson and get students interested. In addition, I am experienced importing graphics and video, and I know how to grab the audience's attention with a well-thought out presentation. I was taught that PowerPoint means "the power of the point." This means that the electronic piece is just a guideline; you are still giving a presentation without reading every word from the screen.
Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word

For three semesters, I taught a course on using technology like Microsoft Word at a local college. I've worked with students who have minimal computer experience, as well as those with some computer knowledge. Additionally, I'm experienced in helping adults learn how to use Microsoft Word.

As an advisor for adults returning to get their high school diplomas, I work with many students who haven't learned how to use a computer before. They're often terrified to use the computer, and I guide them through the basics with patience and care. My computer knowledge is varied, and I can teach the basics and more advanced material comfortably.
