Tutoring & Private Lessons
Let the Alpine Geek show you how to take advantage of all the great technologies that are available.
Stay tuned... I'll be adding more information soon.
Basic Computer Instruction
Don't be intimidated by your computer! Let Alpine Geek show you how to use Windows, set-up and use email, how to defend yourself from viruses and spy ware, use Microsoft products like Word, or whatever computer activity in which you would like training. I'm patient and can teach you how to get the most out of your computer. I'm available for private lessons and you can contact me using my online contact form, or feel free to give me a call at 577-6817.
Do you have a digital camera and want to learn how to get the best images possible? I'll show you how. Even the most basic "point & shoot" cameras have features for improving your images. From basic composition, to creating images to share with your family and friends, I'll help you improve your photographic skills.
Editing Your Images
Once you've taken your pictures, now what? This is an area that intimidates many individuals and rightfully so. What program do I buy? How do I crop my image? How do I correct the color? How do I format an image for email or websites? How do I scan and fix old family photos? I'll walk you through it all... it's not that tough! All you need is a helping hand and a little personal instruction. Contact AlpineGeek.com and schedule your appointment and start editing your images like a pro.
I'll teach you how to get the most out of your video camera, no matter what type or brand. I'll show you what features your camera has and how to use them. If you don't have a video camera, I can help you choose the best one for your needs and then show you how to use it properly.
Once you've got your video, now what? All video needs editing and I'll show you how to do it! From "capturing" your video into your computer to adding transitions to adding text, make your videos more than just the average boring home video. You may already have the hardware and software on your computer. I'll help you figure it all out.
Make Your Own DVD
Share your media with anyone with a DVD player... which is pretty much everybody anymore. Whether you want to share photographs, video, audio, or any combination, I'll show you how to make your own DVD's with flair. It's not rocket science, but it does help to have some personal instruction.
Restoring Your Old Photographs
Do you have old family photographs, but they're in pretty bad shape? This process used to be a tedious and time-consuming process, but with today's technology, it's a snap. I'll show you how to fix any type of image with minimal effort.
Do you have a website, but don't know how to update the content? Most websites are relatively easy to edit and I'll show you how. Need to add some new pictures? Not a problem. There are even free editing programs out there and I'll help you find the best one. One of the biggest reasons websites fail is the lack of updated content. Don't let your site become stale and tired by updating on a regular basis.
Need help with other technologies? The Alpine Geek is a real technology freak and can help you with many of the gadgets you may have but don't know how to use. Need help setting up your new home theater? Need help choosing a new computer? How about that digital video recorder from your cable or satellite provider? Can't add MP3's to your player? Whatever your need, give the Alpine Geek a call or use the online Contact Form and I'll see if I can help.
