Information about Bob
Hello! I am a Microsoft Office Instructor and I love helping people to get the most from their time and effort. This is why I feel so strongly about the MS Office suite. It is simply amazing at reducing workloads when use correctly. Please let me help you find the joy of spreadsheets! :D
BUT! If you don`t fancy that, let me help you with another of my specialities! I am a strong Japanese Language user and I love getting people interested in that fabulous country. If you`re interested in getting started, let me give you the experience and support you will need.
Availability: I am fairly flexible and can arrange evenings and weekends easily, occasional daytime hours.
I can come to you, or to a venue of your choice, up to 20 miles without charge. I charge 30p per mile over that.
Willing to travel: 30 miles
Experience: I have 10 years in private education and I have taught IT, Business English, and Japanese Language to, literally, *thousands* of individuals.
