Experienced classroom and private instructor on all things computer and photography. Adobe Certified Expert ~ Lightroom. In-person within 15 miles of Beaverton OR or online anywhere.

I am passionate about a lot of things. People. Technology. Being of service. Laughing a lot. Photography. Empowering others to do what they want. Bringing out the best in others. Having fun. Learning. Leaving a legacy. Telling stories with photos.

Hence, Pixelegacy – a merging of all of these passions that enables me to bring a joy to my work – a joy that shows in the results, and the relationships I’m thrilled to have built with hundreds of clients over the years.

I’d love to show you how to create and awesome image or photo project. I can also help you with those gnarly spreadsheets, Word, PowerPoint, your e-newsletter or Facebook page – just about anything digital.

Experience and Associations: Photographer since childhood, technology trainer (all things computer – file management, word processing, spreadsheets, whatever) since 1995, teaching digital photography since 2003. Organizer for Portland/Vancouver Photography Meetup group and Women Learning Photography Together Meetup group, Commissioner Beaverton Arts Commission. Instructor Newspace Center for Photography (Portland OR), Cascade Center of Photography (Bend OR), hundreds of private clients.

What I shoot: About anything that doesn’t shoot me back… Mostly I like to capture unusual things, or find unusual ways to capture usual things.

What I teach: All things computer (file management, word processing, spreadsheets, e-newsletters, social media) plus Lightroom, Picasa, how to use all makes and models of digital cameras (including smart phones, photography basics.

Who I teach: I’ve worked with technology users of all levels and professions, passionate amateur and professional photographers of all ages and all levels of experience. I specialize in beginners and intermediate users of all ages, especially women.

How I teach: I’m known for my patience, broad knowledge, empathy and ability to simplify complex concepts and tie them all together into something relevant to your needs. I’m also told that I make it fun! I’m honored that many clients have become good friends.

My own training: Although I’ve taken many classes and workshops, mostly I’m a stubborn, self taught, passionate geekette/photographer who soaks up as much as I can from using software, working my own website and newsletter, and (photographically speaking) studying others’ work, exposing myself to critique, shooting, messing with the shots, shooting more. I think it helps me feel my student’s pain all the more that I’ve figured out so much on my own.

Thanks for checking me out, I hope to hear from you.

Clear, articulate and knowledgeable!

Working with Rebecca was a pleasure and a relief. She KNOWS Lightroom! She gave me clear and concise explanations of the processes I wanted to learn, and didn't confuse me by telling me more than I was able to absorb or use, given my present understanding of Lightroom navigation. She provided me with her Lightroom booklet and a video of our meeting, so that I could review exactly what she showed me, which has helped me clarify my understandings as I walk through the processes again, on my own. Having these additional learning aides is definitely helping me better cement into my memory the processes we discussed. Being tutored by Rebecca was a wonderful experience. She has a way of imparting her knowledge and assistance in a manner that helps me feel like it is all quite doable, and hence, I have a renewed excitement around the challenging process of learning Lightroom! Her manner of teaching also helped me calm my own learning anxieties. It is gratifying and a relief knowing I have a tutor 'in my hip pocket' who is willing and able to help me become more adept and proficient with Lightroom. Rebecca is VERY helpful and, provided a well done session! Without question, 5 Stars!

Very Patient

I had lots of questions as she was explaining what Ibthought my plan was. I was concerned about hiring a consultant but was well wroth the money and saved me weeks worth of frustration. Booked another session after working on our plan. 5 stars and doing another session.

Tutor responded:

Thanks so much Tim, I look forward to working with you again!

Pleasant and helpful

Rebecca has just the right amount of showing me how to do something, or guiding me to do it myself. I was a cooperative learning teacher myself, so I appreciate how well this works. She solved my "problems" with Word and I will be calling her again since my computer knowledge is minimal, and hers is vast.

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much Sherl - it was a pleasure working with and getting to know you. I appreciate your taking the time to write this and your kind remarks. See you again soon!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Rebecca has been the tutor of my dreams! She helped guide me through the intricacies of Lightroom, and helped me make MAJOR advances in organizing my large photo library. She helped me with the challenge of having a PC at work and a Mac at home, and makes mundane tasks seem like so much fun. I highly recommend her! Every time that I get my 'tasks' completed, I contact her to help me with next steps and will continue to do so.

Extremely Knowledgable, and Pateint

I messed up my LR catalog so badly that I couldn't access any of my images. I spent several days trying to figure out what I had done only making things worse. She came to my home, on time, and easily fixed my mess. She went through my laptop optimizing everything and she also taught me a lot of LR tricks I didn't know about. I picked her blindly, but I know I chose the right person. She was knowledgable, kind, and friendly. I now plan on hiring her just for check ups at least once a year. I highly recommend her she's awesome!

Thanks for the awesome review Laura, I really appreciate it. I enjoyed working with you, look forward to doing it again!

A great experience with an in home tutor

I was taking an online class entitled "Spreadsheet Applications".. The last two assignments proved to be very difficult. When I reached out to Rebecca, she was very prompt in answering my e-mails, my questions, as well as setting up an appointment time. She is very knowledgeable, professional, as well as courteous. Thanks to her assistance, I ended up getting a B+ in the class.

Excel Tutor

She was on time and was very professional. My husband tells me she was very knowledgeable, patient and really was a great teacher. We would recommend Rebecca to others and will ask for her again if he needs it. Thank you very much, Leesa Gango.

Thanks Leesa - Jeff did great - let me know if I can be of any further help to him or yourself.

Thank you Laura - I look forward to working with you again next week!

Extremely knowledgeable expert "worth every dime" !

Rebecca was excellent! She helped me complete processes and correct hard drive data in ways that I could never have done without her assistance. I would without question, highly recommend her to anyone who is having any challenges with their Lightroom program!
