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 Photoshop

I have been using and teaching Photoshop for over 5 years. I worked as a graphic designer, both corporate and freelance, before I began teaching as my main career. I am able to teach the basics of Photoshop, photo manipulations and correction, design aspects for print and web design, and much more.

General Computer

I'm a private computer consultant and tutor. I have over 15 years' experience teaching clients how to use a computer, both PC and Mac. Some of the skills I can teach are using the mouse, getting to know your computer, working with files and folders, using external drives, printing/scanning, playing music, burning CD's, organizing and sharing digital photos, exploring the Internet, sending and receiving email including attachments, iPod and mp3 player help, iPhone help, and more.

Macintosh

I have been teaching clients how to use their Apple computers for many years. I have experience with file organization, Safari, Mail, iCal, Address Book, iTunes, iPhoto, and more. I can also give lessons on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod.

Microsoft Excel

I teach basic and intermediate MS Excel. My background is in math as well as teaching, obviously, so I am able to explain the process of creating formulas very well.

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook can be an extremely useful tool for not only checking and organizing email, but this program has contact and calendar capabilities as well as tasks, rules for incoming mail and syncing features (to your mobile phone). I can teach you how to use Outlook for your specific needs and how to filter out the things you don't need as well.

Microsoft Windows

I have been teaching the ins and outs of Microsoft Windows for many years. I have experience with Windows XP, Vista, and 7 and specialize in teaching file organization as well as using the software programs that come with your computer.

Great teacher

Even though it's been nearly 2 years since I worked with Tara, I still remember that she was a great tutor. She showed me a lot of Photoshop shortcuts and tips. I would definitely return to her for more tutoring if I needed it.
