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

Cours en ligne de Maths, d'Informatique (Windows+Word+Excel+PowerPoint) et Adobe Photoshop
Je donne des cours à distance en mathématiques pour les apprenants de la classe EB8 et EB9. De plus, je suis capable de vous donner des cours sur les bases de l'informatique tels Windows, Word, Excel et Power point puisque le système Windows et les 3 autres programmes constituent les bases de la connaissance en informatique. Enfin je peux aussi donner des cours en Photoshop pour les photographes qui aimeraient éditer des images prises par leurs caméras. Je préfère que les cours en maths renferment un groupe de 3 apprenants maximum tandis que les autres matières peuvent en renfermer un nombre illimité.

Computer Science (Hardware and Software) Level = Basic to Advance
Computer Science is the last thing you would need to learn because very soon AI (Artificial Intelligence) which is completely based on computer science and will be taken over by this world. I do not mean to scare you but that's becoming a reality. Since starting of this Covid 19 I would say many people are working online these days from home. To be honest with you its going to be a future. Microsoft one of the biggest Computer Software giant in U.S.A has already declared to all of his employees to work from home even after this pandemic is over. So this the time to educate yourself and become an AI Pro.
