Professionally experienced with teaching computer applications since 1988, I currently work as a contract computer applications instructor of personnel from numerous Silicon Valley firms in the southern San Francisco Bay Area. I'm comfortable working with class sizes from one-on-one to seventeen or more. My main clients include or have included Mentor Training; Computer Magic Training; Paxterra Solutions, Inc.; Sonic Training; ISIS; Versitas; Institute of Computer Technology; Bill Lewallen Technical Training; and CTE/Computer Training Resources/Executrain. I've also taught for numerous non-training companies as well.

I teach the following software applications:

                Excel (specialty)
Word (specialty)
Basic Operating Systems

I teach all levels of most of the above applications, with a special strength in helping beginners grasp basic concepts without feeling intimidated by the software or instruction environment. My other attributes include reliability, flexibility and patience.

Online Instruction:

I also offer individualized tutoring over the Internet to any home or office in the world with a reliable broadband connection. Basically, my student and I use free, quickly-downloadable software to converse via VOIP (or telephone, if the student prefers) and to allow me to view the student's PC and demonstrate features during instruction. Payment transactions are through PayPal, with a one-hour instruction minimum. If you are interested in online remote instruction, please contact me for further information, and we can determine if this process will work for your computer system.
