About Steve

I have been using computers for as long as I can remember. From the days of dial-up through today, I've built, repaired, and used computers of varying make, model, and operating system.

I specialize in the Microsoft Office suite and teaching others how to use the software to make their lives more efficient.

Moving from a PC to a Mac? I can help you! I have a background in education and work in higher education, primarily with college students. I was licensed to teach K-9 in Illinois but moved and slightly changed fields of work.

I am able to provide support, training, and lessons for iDevices, including content management between them and any computers you may use with them.

I am extremely patient, can provide remote support if needed, and look forward to working with you!

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.

General Computer

I have been building, repairing, and using computers for the past 13 years. I have experience with Mac/apple as well as Windows/PC. I can help someone learn how to use a computer for the first time or get someone back up to speed after being away from them for a while. I can work with specific software titles or can do general computer tutoring. I prefer to work with together to come up with the goals and anticipated accomplishments for our time together. I want computing to be stress-free, fun and productive for everyone.

Macintosh

I have four years of consistent work with Macintosh computers and hardware. I have done hardware and software troubleshooting, installation, and repair. I have instructed between 25-50 people on how to utilize Macintosh products, specifically when switching from PC.

Microsoft Outlook

I have over 7 years of experience using Outlook, which has included teaching approximately 150-200 people how to utilize the mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks functions appropriately. I am skilled with rules, archiving, task management, sharing and setting permissions for calendar usage, as well as organizing all of the different types of items that can be generated and received through outlook.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been using PowerPoint and the MS Office suite since 1997 for both personal and professional purposes.

Microsoft Windows

I have used Microsoft Windows since windows 3.1 was an operating system. As they navigated through Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and now 8, I've been involved in the use, repair, and optimization of all of them. I've rebuilt a system on each operating system after Windows 3.1 and am able to provide tutoring, service, or just support to end users with the operating systems.

Microsoft Word

I've used Microsoft Word every day in my work and personal life for the past 10 years. Personal documents, professional work, form creation, etc., have all been a part of what I've done. Troubleshooting the software when it doesn't work or just knowing where to find the rich features that the software is equipped with are two areas of strength for me.

Excellent tutor

Steve was a very good tutor. He answered all my questions and explained in a way I could understand - not too technical. I plan to use him again.
