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).

There are over 60 Computer Mama courses available through ed2go and World Education.

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
