About Virginia

I have worked with computers since 1963 when I was a bank-teller with the New York Bank for Savings that introduced the first corporate computers to New York City. I was previously regarded as being one of the fastest typists around. I was thus enabled to teach students how to master keying with minimum effort, a service that I have provided many times, both on-the-job and privately. I have extensive experience with Microsoft Office Word, Internet, PowerPoint, Riverpoint Writer, Adobe, Flash, PhotoShop and Microsoft Office Excel. I can ably tutor students who feel intimidated when they approach these programs for the first time

I believe that the only thing a person needs to know in order to operate a computer is where the ‘on’ and ‘off’ buttons are. The rest is easy. The computer will guide you. I have taught many students to overcome their initial fear when approaching any new challenge. I know how to guide a person towards mastering a skill that they had been intimidated by.

I love educating students. My life experience has brought me infinite patience, and while I might be seventy years old I look fifty and I have more energy than most youngsters. My parents were teachers from the old school, I am of the new. I dedicate myself to cultivating my student’s confidence in themselves and trust in me without pressure or judgment. I provide them with all the time and space in the world to learn. And as a mature person, with the energy and the robustness of someone much younger, I bring them encouragement in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

I like people. It’s as simple as that. I am compassionate and generous by nature. People are happy to learn from me and invariably recommend me to anyone else who is seeking to master the skills that I have acquired and love to pass along.
I studied piano and organ from the ages 4 – 18, and played for churches and choirs. I accompanied my high school choir for four years. One did not need a degree or union membership back then, just a love for music and a measure of accomplishment. Both of which I have. I still teach music to beginners and I can accompany a soloist or a choir when required. It is something I was taught by an aunt who had studied violin and I have an abiding passion to share my music knowledge with others.
