design & technical courses
Since starting my business in 2016, people ask if I do tutoring. Although I do not have any teaching qualifications in this area, I think I’m pretty good explaining technical and design skills in a simple, understandable language.
I cannot provide you with a computer and software for lessons but have a large meeting room that I could fill or do one to one experiences.
I work on the PC so couldn’t help with keyboard skills on the Mac but the software and technical skills outside this are pretty much the same on any computer or phone. A deposit is required too.
All you would need to do is either phone me or email to book in some dates.
Businesses: £15 per hour or my day rate is £100
Students: £12 per hour
Seniors: £10 per hour
Children: £12 per
types of technical skills I can teach
- Help setting up email, using email and using your mobile phone.
- Creating graphics and changes to websites
- Creating a book design and publish it
After receiving a Fine Art Bachelors Degree with Hons from The University of John Moores Liverpool in 1998, I became very interested in computer arts, and during in the last year of the course, I followed up my interest by furthering my education via computer software courses.
Before starting Elluse, I pursued a successful career as a graphic designer & website designer for 20 years.
I worked within Marketing/Advertising/Internet departments and liaised with clients, programmers and marketers. Brands I have worked with include Microsoft, Moben Kitchens, Barbarians FC, Motorola and more.
During this time, I began to recognise just how unique my collection of skills were. The majority of my colleagues were 100% interested in creating Websites and Graphic Design and had no interest in whether the work they produce was making the company a profit. Additionally, my colleagues in the business departments were very business oriented but struggled with creativity.
While this was all good experience, I was unable to leverage my business skills under these circumstances and started to think about going out alone as a small business. Capify provided me with confidence. To entertain the idea of going out on my own, and in time, Elluse was born!
