About Therese

I am an innovative trainer and facilitator with over 18 years’ experience teaching a wide range of software and professional skills. An effective communicator with a truly interactive training style, I am able to tailor programs to fit specific client requests. I assess the needs of adult learners, then lead and empower them to maximize their proficiency. With certified skills in Accelerated Learning, I use a multi-sensorial approach to ensure greater retention.

I hold a BA in Corporate and Interpersonal Communications and certification in Graphic Arts, Adult Education Techniques, Accelerated Learning, Program Design, and Program Marketing. Skilled in desktop design and photo editing, I have a unique edge in teaching design software. I also have collaborated and trained on many high-profile Microsoft Office and Outlook migrations. I am skilled in public speaking and am frequently requested as a keynote speaker and MC. My enthusiastic client list includes several well-known national training organizations, noteworthy corporations, and governmental agencies and it is available for confidential viewing upon request.

I can quickly assess a student's current skill level and their learning style to immediately create a highly successful training session. I am extremely patient with both the student and the technology, always making the session comfortable and enjoyable. I ensure comprehension and retention by using Accelerated Learning techniques.

In addition to Microsoft and Adobe products, I learn your proprietary software to the expert level so I can teach it to your employees or clients. I also teach a wide variety of Business Skills, including: Time Management, Presentation Skills, Customer Service Skills, and more.

I teach both the software tools and the best practice techniques for creating professional business graphics, while allowing the student time to explore the software with labs that allow for creative freedom.

Whether you are an individual looking to increase your software and business skills or a company with employee and/or client training needs, I invite you to contact me to see how I can help! I look forward to hearing from you.

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 am qualified to teach Adobe InDesign because I have been using every version update of the software to the advanced level since it was first released, and PageMaker before that. I keep current with all updates and I currently teach InDesign to corporate clients several times per month. I teach using hand-on labs in which students create usable documents that they can then export for print or digital distribution.

Desktop Publishing

I am qualified to teach Desktop Publishing because I have been using InDesign, Quark, and other brands of desktop publishing software to the advanced level.
