Software and hardware management. learn the basics of owning a personal computer.

Methodology

My patient easy going manner puts the students at ease which in turn obtains the best possible performance and results to the best of their individual abilities. Without financial constraints, I would like to obtain a nationally recognised qualification so I might be able to use my experience and knowledge on a more full time and permanent basis to assist others. I am happy to work in a team based environment but am equally just as at home working under my own direction and completing tasks unassisted via my own resolve.

Experience

Over the past 30 years I have built and maintained the smooth operation of computers and home networks for friends and family. I am familiar with MS Word, XL and other MS office related software packages and some non-MS related software packages. I currently utilise my experience to assist with teaching mature students in the use of MS office, Skype, verbal and video conferencing, internet usage including emailing and web browsing. These students are taught the basics in home accounting, presentation and how to download images from websites to create impressive spread sheets. They are also taught about internet security and how to surf, shop and update their computers safely online.

Making sure all children with learning disabilities that were in my charge had safely boarded the school minibus and were safely seated and strapped into their seats. Once safely aboard I would drive them to the Marlborough leisure centre for swimming lessons. I would assist in getting the boys changed into their swimming costumes and to get dressed again before repeating the process with the minibus to get them back to school safely.
On Fridays of each week I would take children to riding for the disabled. Once there I would often assist the teachers by walking around the track with the disabled children on horseback to ensure their safety on the ponies.
