About Libby

I have a Master's from Boston College. I taught foreign language (French/Latin) in secondary schools for seven years. Later I worked for a major computer company and trained the sales force on using laptops and sales applications. I led a productivity team for several years, training sales and technical agents on Windows, MS Office, and proprietary contact management software.

I retired in 2008. I worked for a TV station for two years at a High School. I was able to use my MS Office skills to set up systems, program schedules, and marketing/communication pieces. Sometimes the fear of the computer overwhelms peoples' ability to understand how easy this all is! I like working with people, adults and children and would enjoy a tutoring commitment.

I use simple analogies and quick tricks to help learners understand. I encourage a lot of 'hands on' to ensure that the learners have enough practice to feel confident on their own.

Please contact me and let me know why you need this help and what you would like to focus on during your sessions.

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.

French

I have 7 years experience teaching French levels 1 and 2 at the secondary level. I am fluent in French and host a student from Lyon each Summer. I also host a group of adults who have weekly conversational meetings to keep our skill sharp.
I like to use practical projects to make French fun...songs, advertisements, cartoons.

Microsoft Excel

I have over 20 years experience with MS Excel. I have prepared several projects using formulas, filtering, subtotals and importing from external databases.
I also use Excel often to perform mail merges with Word. I am comfortable importing and exporting data from other applications.

Microsoft Outlook

I have taught several courses on MS Outlook in the past, including: organizing folders/favorites, importing/exporting contacts, sharing calendars/sending invites/voting, and backing up and compacting .pst files.

Microsoft Windows

I have trained users on MS -DOS as well as Windows, Windows XP, and Windows 7 .
I am currently on Windows 8.1. I am proficient in setting up the desktop, organizing files and folders, changing views, sorting etc. I am proficient in managing multiple applications at once.

Microsoft Word

I have several years experience using MS Word, for technical documentation with screenshots, for resumes, and for correspondence. I am comfortable with inserting tables, graphics, hyperlinks and bookmarks.
