About Jackie

Thank you for reading my profile.

I have been a corporate trainer for large corporations teaching software to adults as well as a software implementation manager. I have used PC's from the late 1980s and have recently become versed in Apple Mac based products.

From beginner to advanced, I have successfully shown many people how to make the software work for them and to overcome anxiety and frustration in completing their daily tasks and how to automate repetitive tasks.

I teach the Microsoft Suite (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and teach common features across the programs to show students how they can use them to achieve their goals. I also use real-life examples and show how many tasks can apply to home life as well.

Right now, I specialize in people brushing up their skills to return to the workforce. And I also have been assisting people to delve into social media and how they can use it for both personal and professional uses.

Frustrated with doing things manually or from not understanding how to make the software work for you? Then let me show how to make your life easier!

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.

Macintosh

I have taken the following Apple One to One classes: Getting Started On Your Mac, Getting Started on your iPad, Getting Started on your iPhone, iCloud, iPhoto, iMovie, iTunes, and GarageBand.

When I switched my personal computer and devices to the Apple platform, I took these classes and taught myself how to use and make the switch between platforms. I have successfully tutored others in this subject area already. This is a complement to my traditional PC based platform training.

Microsoft Windows

I’ve been using computers for over 20 years back to the days of dump terminals. After being a clerk for summer jobs during college, I became an analyst for a major telecommunications company. I’ve been using PCs, word processing, spreadsheets and presentations ever since. I became one of the go-to people in the office when someone got stuck. I moved up in the company to managing a staff of 15 and frequently had to show people how to accomplish a task to make them more productive or to achieve a specific work result.

I became a software instructor and had to certify in the programs I have listed in my profile.

I’ve successfully shown adults how to navigate their own computer and operating system. I used to teach DOS and then Windows 3.1 when it was released, and all the subsequent versions. Some of the topics I cover are: exploring your desktop, exploring your document filing system, managing multiple applications and keeping your files organized and accessible.

I create a comfortable atmosphere to learn how to use the computer and operating system features without fear of “breaking it.”

Knowledgeable, gives clear explanations, friendly — Jackie taught my 2 college students the basics of Excel. This includes making tables, inserting pictures, excel functions, shortcuts and much more in a 2 hour session. My son has since been using Excel in his current summer employment so Jackie's tutoring has helped him greatly. A coworker noticed my son using Excel and commented to him that he knew more Excel then they thought he would. My daught ...
