Incredible ability to teach technology

Developed a successful method for teaching visually that is based on observation, orientation and notation. The method is very effect for teaching concepts and skills.

I have taught Microsoft Office Certification Exam preparation course for Microsoft Office 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 programs. The books that I wrote for these course met the Microsoft Vendor of Approved Courseware for the Microsoft Office 2010 and 2007(MCAS).

During the summer, Alex and I participate in the High School Career Challenge. It is a program for students with Asperger's Syndrome (autism) that focuses on job skills and training. We developed a Flash animation course that teaches the students how to create banner ads.

I enjoy teaching Microsoft Office and look forward to working with you. eBeth
