Philosophy of Teaching:

I believe it is almost impossible for you to learn software by simply listening to my lectures, reading tips or by watching the demonstrations only. The best way to learn any software is “hands-on” time with the computer. Nothing works better than taking the mouse in your hand, pulling down menus, pushing buttons and trying to figure out what you did incorrectly. If you combine listening to the lecture with taking notes, referencing the “Help” menu when stuck, doing the exercises and countless hours on the computer, you will do well. The more time you work with a program, the better you will get. Also, you should never come to class without your notes or your textbook. These are your reference materials. When most people are stuck, they use these materials. Others simply call on me to help. If you ask for help, you can be sure I will ask where your reference materials are.
