Software Applications & System Training

Whether you need a crash course in Excel so that you can get THAT job, or you want to master Joomla! content editing so that you can manage your own web site, or just want to make your photos look great in Photoshop so that you can sell them as giclée art cards, Miko can help you to master the skills you need.

Miko has had experience teaching just about every application.  At the San Francisco Art Institute as Computer Systems Administrator, Miko offered seminar sessions in how to use Outlook email, Microsoft Word, and web browsers.  As the Helpdesk Team Leader when working as Associate IT Director at AAUW, he led one-on-one and seminar-style sessions to teach various types of software in his own department, and others.  In Seattle, Miko has taught Excel, Word, Outlook, Dreamweaver and Photoshop extensively in one-on-one and small group sessions, because these have traditionally been the most highly requested applications.

Miko's teaching experience has included the broadest range of people.  He has garnered years of experience working with senior clients and English-limited clients.  In fact, Miko's early teaching experiences were a a volunteer at Refugee Transitions, in San Francisco, teaching English to an Ethiopian couple, and at Dolores Street Community Services in San Francisco, teaching basic English skills to the Latino shelter residents.

Miko has had and keeps many local Seattle teaching clients.  Some of his "students" moved away from Seattle and yet continue tutoring sessions using Remote Desktop and Logmein.

Training can be one-on-one or as a group.  Remote teaching maybe be available if the application or procedures being taught can be properly covered via Phone, Skype, Logmein, Remote Desktop, or other shared remote screen software such as VNC.  Highly successful remote sessions are usually a combination of screen sharing and hands-free audio discussion.

To create an ideal training session, Miko recommends that you list specifically what you would like to learn:  make a prioritized list of tasks you'd like to be able to complete on your computer, or in a specific computer program.  Email this list to Miko and he'll be able to describe how he can best teach you what you desire to learn.
