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

John
Computer Science Tutoring from 30 Year Computing Veteran
I am a specialist Computer Science tutor/teacher with more than 30 years of involvement in computing of all kinds. I have 10 years experience delivering private tutoring and teaching class-based students. I was educated in Trinity College Dublin and hold a Degree in Computer Science and a Post Grad Diploma in Cloud Computing. I provide a student-centered, supportive classroom that promotes compassion and tolerance, emotional security, resourcefulness, and independent critical thinking while addressing the individual academic and emotional needs of each student. It is a pleasure to teach one’s hobby. I have extensive experience of providing online tuition to students all around Ireland and Europe. I deliver subjects ranging from Introduction to Computers, ECDL\ICDL, IT Administrator, Networks, IT Manager and Cloud Computing. I have hundreds of testimonials from satisfied learners. Here are some examples: John is very knowledgeable about computing overall and has broadened my knowledge and interest in computing and software applications. He has a great sense of humor and is focused on making it possible to achieve certification. Thank you for a well-presented course and your help John. I would recommend this course and John as a lecturer to anyone considering studying computers. This was an excellent course I have enjoyed every minute of it. I had very little computer experience starting the course and I thought it would be too difficult for me. John is an excellent teacher, probably the best one I ever had. I loved his sense of humor and I feel he was very helpful in many ways. I now feel confident in using computers. I really enjoyed the course and Thank you, John, for everything, you’re a super Teacher. I derive great pleasure from helping others learn. As a teacher, our professional practice is an expression of who we are. It connects us with a desire to share and to partake in something bigger than ourselves, an opportunity to make the world a better place by shaping the next generation. I teach because I believe that what I do should matter.

Corentin
Experienced private teacher (Bac + 5), gives introductory computer lessons by webcam or in Tours.
Hello ! I am an IT Security Engineer in Tours, I have been teaching since 2019 (See comments and feedback on review sites!). I offer support for middle and high school students, university / engineering school students but also for individuals, especially the elderly. I am available for regular follow-ups with medium / long-term objectives to be achieved (ex: preparation for the Bac, other diploma, weekly follow-up ...) but also occasional interventions (help to prepare for a partial, project, .. .). ============ = Method ============ I adopt a rigorous and methodical approach that allows me to optimize and maximize the results of all students, whatever their basic level and their objectives. To do this, we will first carry out a first exchange of messages, aimed at clarifying the student's situation, his shortcomings and his expectations. Following this, I propose a session plan (s) to the student that would allow him to meet his needs. During the session: After answering all the questions that the student may have prepared before the session, I myself suggest points that I consider very important or clever and give applications. I make sure that the student has a good understanding of the different aspects of the course before going through exercises and problems that allow the student to understand the usefulness and the extent of the effectiveness of each theorem or trick . For students preparing for partials, I adopt a more pragmatic approach based on tutorials / annals in order to allow the student to channel his efforts and focus on the parts that will allow him to have the best grade. At the end of a session, the following objectives are met: - Allow the student to master his course from start to finish. - Allow the student to do and understand the TD exercises while ensuring that the writing of the solution is correct and rigorous (especially in preparation). - Allow the student to establish a work plan that allows him to better manage his time, to work in a more orderly and methodical manner and to obtain better results.

Web design and computer initiation classes
The objective is to teach how to build a web page, website or blog from the study of CMS technology, providing the fundamental notions of the HTML and Javascript language, as well as the fundamentals and techniques most used in the field of graphic editing, with particular attention to platforms and programs for developers such as Wordpress, Joomla, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Illustrator, Flash, Premiere, Virtualdub and Acrobat Pro. For those who want to be initiated and need basic computer notions, my intention is to provide the rudiments for the use of a computer and the main programs. Since 1998 I have started the study of web design, and since this time I have produced dozens of websites, such as designer, layout artist and developer, also dealing with narrative, copywriting, graphics, audio and video editing, logo creation, posters, posters and in general of the entire company image for several clients. At the same time I have worked as a private tutor at home in general computing oriented to the main programs (Wordpress, Joomla, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Illustrator, Flash, Premiere, Virtualdub, Acrobat Pro, Goldwave, Audacity, Multiquence, Campaign Cartographer, Sigil, 3D Studio Max).

Offering Computer Science or IT classes for anyone interested!
I have had a passion for Computer Science and IT ever since I first studied it in school. I then decided to further pursue this at a degree level at the University of Nottingham. What particularly intrigued me about the subject area was solving problems and learning to understand interesting topics that form the basis of the technological evolution currently happening globally. From studying it so rigorously, I have well accustomed to the requirements needed for students to succeed. Often the mathematic, and logical concepts can seem challenging when initially grasping an understanding in the field. This prompted me to start tutoring students for the past 3 years and develop explanations and teaching styles that are adaptable to each students learning style. I have lots of revision tips, lesson plans and resources that are up to date with the current curriculum! I like to plan lessons by covered each topic in depth, and covering any difficulties that students might focus. I regularly like to hold mini-test style questions to ensure the information is consolidated, and follow with exam paper review sessions to ensure that students are ready for their exams. Although my focus has been on students that are studying for a particular exam, I have also built up experience in tutoring adult learners that are wanting to develop their general IT skills so do feel free to reach out!

Computer / social networks / multimedia lessons for all ages
I base myself on a very pragmatic and empirical computer science methodology. I try to create an environment of trust and to demystify IT. The concepts are so vast that it is easy to get lost in them. I think my role is to create a simple and common vision of what is desired before creating meaning in my course. I graduated in business informatics and have been working in the industry for 7 years. Currently IT project manager for 3 years, I also taught IT project management for a year at high school in Luxembourg. I have a very varied background with a strong emphasis on the social and pragmatic aspect of IT.
