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.

Desktop Publishing

I teach a class called Desktop Publishing using MS Word and Publisher. In this class students act as a Desktop Publisher for several different companies and create all the flyers, brochures, business cards, letterhead, etc. that the company needs. The simulations used by the students are: Frillio's Pizza, Concert Tour, and Elect Me! all from BE Publishing. Skills learned include: page and layout design, working with graphic images, objects and elements used in graphic design, creativity and imagination, technical writing, critical thinking. Also included are planning and decision making, advertising and marketing and creating documents using Publisher and Word. This gives students a solid understanding of how to use this software.

Microsoft Access

I taught Access in an advanced computer class at my high school. My students used a book called "Access It!" written by Martha McGuinness and published by BE Publishing. They worked on teen-based MS Access activities.

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is our email system in my school district. It is a free email service provided by Microsoft. It has many organizational tools to keep your email clutter free. Our school district updated to the newer version of Outlook but we've been using this system for several years now, so I am familiar with how it works. I email many times a day and use most of the functions provided in Outlook. As a matter of fact, I've trained many of my colleagues how to use Outlook.

Microsoft Publisher

I have taught Desktop Publishing for over 10 years and have used Microsoft Publisher for many projects in our class. Our students do real life simulation projects where they act as the Desktop Publisher for a company. Some of these include: Frillio's Pizza and Concert Tour both from BE Publishing. The skills taught include learning to use Publisher and Word effectively to design brochures, business cards, flyers, envelopes, letterhead, ads, etc. Page layout and design skills are stressed as well as working with graphic images, objects and elements used in graphic design.

Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windows describes an operating system of computers. Currently, we work with Windows 7 but I've worked in past years with Windows XP. I've also been exposed to Windows 8 which is on my laptop. Our students learn how to operate the computers in general by becoming familiar with the operating system of their computer. We start out each computer class by reviewing this information.

Patient, extremely helpful, and loves what she does!

Mariechen is extremely helpful and passionate about her work. Prior to our first session, Mariechen went searching for various resources on her own time. She came prepared to each session with all materials she felt were necessary in helping me. While tutoring me for the Praxis standardized test, she was very patient. She quickly discovered and focused on the subjects that I needed the most work i
