As manager of a Mac-based art studio, I have full working knowledge of the Mac system.
I can help you navigate, organize, and customize your Mac to make your tasks easier.

Spanish:
Being a native of Barcelona, Spain, I also teach Spanish for travel, school, business, or simply for the pleasure of learning a new language.
I have successfully taught Spanish to business people who have a limited amount of time to become proficient.
If you need help with your school homework, we will concentrate on the problems at hand. If your goal is to travel to a Spanish speaking country, you'll learn the most important questions and sentences needed to make your travel experience most rewarding.
My interactive teaching style will help you master the language in a fun and active way.

I can help you build and manage your own website with the popular platform Squarespace.
Squarespace's beautiful templates are a great starting point for anyone wishing to have a polished, clean, easy to navigate website for various purposes: blogging, selling online, displaying artwork.

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 worked as general manager of a computer graphics studio for 8 years. One of my responsibilities was to keep the Mac computers updated and working efficiently. I did all the software upgrades, I purchased new computers, I set up user and email accounts, I installed software programs, I did troubleshooting when something wasn't working properly.
I personally own several macs ( desktop, laptop and ipad) and have experience in the following software programs: Apple Pages, Keynote, Final Cut Pro, Photoshop.
I have trained several employees to use the Mac, and have helped others make the change from Windows to Mac.

Spanish

Learning a second language is a fun and mind expanding experience.

It doesn't have to be a painful, repetitious memory exercise if it is taught in a dynamic, engaging manner.

With me as a teacher, you learn Spanish the same way a small child learns English - starting with basic common words, then building simple sentences, then moving on to more complex thoughts and vocabulary.

This teaching method delivers excellent results because the emphasis is on having the student speak Spanish from the very first day.

Web Design

I have been working with the Squarespace website building platform for three years. I started by building my own website/online store/blog. The complexity of the website required an in-depth study of Squarespace's training materials. I use a very interactive approach with my students: they learn by doing. At the end of the course (which can take from 4 to 10+ hours, depending on website complexity) students have built their own websites and are capable of updating them and making changes on their own.
