Mastering IT for your daily needs
Hello, You are an adult and you need the technology to take steps or take actions. But it seems difficult to see insurmountable on your own. Arm with your notebook, you would like us to explain you step by step and know how to reproduce in order to gain confidence and autonomy! That's good, I'm able to guide you and explain what the platforms / sites expect from you! For example, how to lighten a file so that it is accepted on official sites? What are the different file formats? What are the tips to save time or make your job easier? I have a European license for computer graphics (design using the computer) and the handling and use of the different software (in French and in English) does not scare me. I have been helping those around me for many years, I have also learned to create tutorials. The language barrier is not a barrier. I have patience, curiosity and I am a teacher. And above all, I will create real situations drawn from our learning in order to assess your progress, give feedback and anchor your new skills! Take a first lesson in order to get to know each other and understand your needs, whether they are one-off or part of a longer course. Hope to meet you ! Amandine

Excel for beginner as well as anyone who wants to increase their excel knowledge
In this class I will teach you excel right from the basics to the advance level, you might wonder why to choose me for tones of other teachers out there. It is because I will focus more on practice and exercise rather than theory and written part. This helps the student to gain the required knowledge about excel. Now I ask why learn Excel, it is because it has been used by MNCs for more than 20 years and still being used for many things. It is also used to do data analysis which is a hot job of 21st century. So it is a great time to jump on the boat to learn more about excel and also excel in your job

Private lessons, tutoring and refresher courses in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science
Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science giving you cold sweats? Don't feel up to it? Or simply, these areas do not appeal to you at all? Let's see together how your potential can allow you to understand differently, apply yourself or simply improve your skills in these areas... My method is simple: 1- analyze together your potential, your expectations, what is possible and in how long 2- see, review or consolidate the basics with a different approach 3- practice in practical areas 4- take stock after each session my leitmotif: "Nothing is impossible, bring your will and your personality, we will bring out your potential" Who am I? with a university education in Applied Physics, holder of a BTS in Surveyor Topography, I like to transmit knowledge that we believe is accessible to only some people. I rigorously adapt to each personality, and not the other way around. Teacher for 3 years in college and high school, school life support, then tutoring for two years in primary school, and finally home tutoring with a large brand for a year, I like to cultivate the difference that is in each of we. If this brief description of my journey has not yet convinced you, I leave you my favorite sentence that best reflects my thoughts: "Mathematics is to Physics, what the cane is to the disabled person" (Today imperfect, we only manage to move in the understanding of our universe through this help that is mathematics. It is not pleasant and we would prefer to do without it, but failing that, we can at least see this tool as an aid rather than a handicap...)
