About Lori

I understand what it takes to be a good student. I am still a student. While working on my MBA, I'm discovering, even more, the value in learning my previous course-subjects, and in what areas I am not as knowledgeable as I'd like to or need to be. My experience with learning has taught me there is no boundary to it.

I started college coursework as soon as my son (now 20 years old) started the Head Start program in our neighborhood at 4 years old, and I have come to love learning and enjoy sharing what I've learned with others who want to know. The "want to know" part is imperative! My admiration of anyone that has something they want to learn for the first time, or learn more about, and my empathy for them, drives me to want to help. Individuals that need assistance with something they want to learn or must learn to do another ambition should be able to reach-out, with-out inhibitions or delay, and get the help they need. I realize that sometimes limited class schedules or tuition costs can become a detriment to our learning all we need to know, or to having the hands-on experience (sometimes one student is singled-out for demonstrations, and others still haven't had the opportunity). I want to be the one to call on. I want to help with hands-on learning, present more of the visuals some need, and say the words that spark a light bulb moment.

My collegiate course-work required many reports to be written, and this made me very knowledgeable about MS Word. The same is true for MS PowerPoint. I work as a contractor, and frequently as a Data Entry Analyst; therefore, the MS Office Suite is consistently used, and my experience has taught me many aspects of Excel, Access, Outlook, as well as various Windows components (i.e. accessories, system tools, and access points of different versions of Windows.

Please feel free to ask me the questions you find difficult to ask. If a mistake can be made, I probably have made it. Please feel free to ask me to say it again, or do it again. My patience is yours to test.

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.

Microsoft Outlook

While working multiple office positions as a contract worker, I have been required to communicate using MS Outlook: writing and sending emails, creating mail folders, sorting mail, scheduling meetings, gaining access to other's calendars, creating mail rules and flagging/categorizing mail as needed. I enjoy working in Outlook and helping others learn how to use it too.

Microsoft Windows

My first computer had Windows ME (Millennium Edition -which worked perfectly for me, by the way) and I have worked with each new version of Windows since, except Windows 8 (I have not had the need to use it on my devices). I took Windows and Windows 2000 courses while obtaining my three Associates degrees. While there have been quite a few changes in the subsequent version of Windows, the concepts are still the same: user-friendly computer file access.

I have worked Computer User Help Desk positions while performing contract work. Therefore, I understand how to access and analyze Computer Management, work the Control Panel, and select default printers. I am able to modify taskbar and start menu properties and access Windows Explorer, all while managing a number of files and folders.

Windows acts as a personal computer assistant, and I look forward to showing the benefits of Windows to anyone that would like to learn more.
