HELLO!
Let's start by saying Microsoft Word in the Suite of programs is very smooth program to undertake and has few major reasons any typist can't convert. If you have used either older word processors or were in a Linux/Mac environment and haven't used MS Suites' in the past, you have come to the right place to get the 101 lowdown on MS Word for Windows.

There is curriculum that is required to fully understand and move through the steps you will need a PC and a version of MS Suite 2010, 2013, or most preferred is Suite 2016.

System requirements are different for Win 7 and Win 10 please consult the vendor you bought your computer from or if this is a work computer please have it serviced by the proper Administrate IT person at your work.

For beginners and up to Intermediate usage.


Looking forward to getting you started.

ASK a QUESTION!!

Kind Regards,

Gayle Williams

Gayle was very patient with me. That is saying a lot. I have a problem with computers not doing things for me. We did run into that problem, so she sent me a step by step instruction sheet with pictures on it. That helped.

I am pretty new at computers so Gayle has given me hope there is a place for an older person being able to navigate the Windows operating systems. and these smart phones.

I think her style of teaching or tutoring, is impeccable-never once did she let on I didn't know what I was doing. She made me feel comfortable and was up-front what I needed to do and allowed me to do it myself. I learn best if I do things myself.

She has given me a way to do basic Windows actions, email, internet and most important of all access Netflix!

I highly recommend Gayle for any of the classes she teaches. Computers are not my strong area- but with Gayle's help now I can help my veteran buddies get on the VA sites and conduct business. I can help other apply for jobs and navigate a resume and basic things we all should know now no matter how old we get.

Good going Gayle!

About Rosanne
I am a life-long crocheter, having learned from my grandmother and the Girl Scouts as a child. I am beginning my coursework for certification as a Crochet Master by the Crochet Guild of America this fall. I can work from written instructions as well as charts and often create my own patterns. I have used all types of yarn from the bulkiest roving wool to the finest thread. Currently my focus is on baby clothes, toys and blankets - new generation coming in to my family! One of my primary life pleasures is gifting my creations.
I have enjoyed teaching crochet informally throughout my life to friends and friends of friends and am always thrilled when the skill takes root in another. I currently belong to a few local crochet / knit circles and attend CGOA conferences as regularly as possible.
If you're up for learning or honing your cro
chet while sharing knowledge, laughs and a yummy snack, I'm your gal.

NOTE: I am right-handed. It is sometimes difficult for a left-handed person to learn from a right-handed crocheter.

I have been crocheting for over 15 years and knitting for over 5 years. My true passion is knitting but I teach both. I taught for Michael's craft stores for a little over a year and then decided to venture out on my own and teach privately until I am able to reach my ultimate goal of owning my own yarn store. My current students say I have a lot of patience and am a joy to learn with. I can teach anywhere from beginner lessons to advanced techniques such as cables, lace and socks.

I've taken lessons from Amy for both Crochet & Knitting. She is awesome!! I'm ambidextrous, a lefty by nature but do many things with my right and Amy was able to show me both left & right ways of knitting to see which one was more comfortable for me. She is knowledgeable and extremely patient, upbeat personality and makes learning fun. My 9yr old took a class with her and loved it. Don't hesitate, Amy is awesome.

About Corean
I've been performing for about six years. I began as an aerialist but really found my joy in ground based performances, particularly hula hooping.

I choreograph my own work and am frequently hired to perform my pieces. I've worked for a few circus theatre productions & cabaret shows. Mostly I perform in the event entertainment industry for events like Media Launches for Six Flags Rollercoasters, NCAA Basketball half time shows, product launches for companies including M.A.C cosmetics and more. When I'm not performing it is not unusual to find me hoop dancing or juggling at a park for fun.

My teaching approach is fun and I will help you discover new ways for self expression. There is equal emphasis on skill development as well as developing strength, flexibility, and body awareness. I can help gymnasts develop hoop skills to inc
orporate with their gymnastics, I can help new flow artists refine their flow in time for the next music festival, I can teach hoop fitness for those approaching hooping with fitness goals in mind, or I can help aspiring performers refine their technique.
