The most important skills for the 21st Century are information and digital literacy, along with the confidence to boldly and fearlessly experiment and try new things. Many people of all ages who feel as though they don't "get" technology are highly skilled, yet hesitate when challenged by the need to use new applications, tools, or functions. I work with learners to explore the tech that matters to them in a collaborative, iterative fashion to increase their confidence and build a foundation of broadly-applicable computer skills that will grow over time and allow them to fearlessly face future challenges.
I am a professional librarian currently working as a systems administrator in a law library, where I teach smart people how to use complicated technologies every day. If you're looking for help understanding a new type of computer operating system, software, app, or just want to get things done faster and more easily, then you've come to the right place!
I have a Master of Information degree from the University of Toronto. I am also CompTIA A+ certified, and am currently adding to my skill-set by studying for CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, and CISSP certifications.
These classes are intended for learners of all ages who wish to increase their comfort and confidence with personal computing technologies of any kind, including desktop and laptop PC hardware concepts, smartphones and tablets, any operating systems of interest, as well as introduction to more advanced topics such as networking, privacy/VPNs, virtualization, cloud computing, etc.
I have considerable experience working with students and adult professionals who have limited computer knowledge beyond web browsers and office productivity suites, but who wish to increase the breadth and depth of their computer skills. Instruction can be completely customized to meet the learner's individual needs.
