Overview

Soon STUDENTS UNDER 19!!! I am in the process of taking my updated background check and reinstating that process to take students of all ages.

Until you see my background check I can only set up those that are 18+.

The focus has changed considerable as we have opened up a brick and mortar home school for our granddaughter of which I am headmaster.

We are asking friends and family to help with the construction which will be swift, and completed in 30 days.

This is good for my online students, in that there will be a camera feed directly into the classroom. Once you have followed the process to secure me as your instructor, you will receive the URL to that private video link and join our classroom.

This will be especially exciting for special needs children that do not get to leave home to go to school; our grand daughter will in fact have to leave the house to travel to the converted garage in which the school is located. This short trip excites and engages her in her day and the path it takes. Many may think "what is the point," cognitive abilities have a wide range of needs that must be met for a person to progress through life.

As for people like our grand daughter there must be a higher standard, we make the mark very high so she can have all the choice at her finger tips even if she can't implement them herself she deserves the opportunity to HEAR, and TOUCH her way through life with added pointers to make it less obvious she can't see, or talk. Understanding what is said is cognitive achievement! I believe all people in any state should be stimulated and engaged to learn or be taught something daily.

For more information on how the home school for special need children works please book a class in the near future and give your child or grandchild the join of being part of a classroom with classmates to grow up with!

Home School Friendship is Magic

HS# IN-49-5300-3JZC:
The home school is based on all my previous learning that have been shared through the decades; which includes computer assisted learning, hands-on home school in the 1990's where we educated our oldest daughter and her 2yr old sister at the time sat in on classes. Now that oldest daughter is all grown up and we recreated the home school now for her daughter, my so beautiful granddaughter.

Why teach?
With decades of self taught Microsoft environments, includes desktop to database creation and instruction, installation of home network and small businesses.

The computer background makes it easy to create all the coursework ever needed. My lifetime access to my college online libraries makes my extraordinary educational experience unique.

Outline of professional IT experiences:

Win10, fourteenth operating system with MS.
Support services over the phone and through a Join.me session to correct or teach directly on client or student computers. (phone connection would be necessity for that type of session)

Writing professionally spans all my adult years as writing was a way of professional expression. It shifts the soul to read something enlightening! I am a contributor on Poetry.com for over a decade, also published in the Bereavement Magazine in the 1980's.

Copyrighted a Self Help Seminar in early 1990's. In the mid 1990's copyrighted written projects of self help nature, published on Kindle, where I will continue to be an advocate for rights for children to be safe from all potential harm.

Personal passion for writing includes several book outlines and currently have solid projects that are intended for entertainment industry and Copyrights on three other texts that are intended for a self-help audience.

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.

She was extremely informative and knowledgeable in everything from the aesthetic aspects of web design to the coding required. I would highly recommend her for lessons!

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!
