What you'll do
We’ll begin with an introductory chat at a local organic coffee shop. Let me treat you to a cup of bird-friendly coffee or tea and a home-made goodie, and let’s get to know one another a little. This is also a great chance to get you set up with an Instagram account, if you don’t already have one. (Don’t worry, I will guide you through each step, and we can trouble shoot together!) Then we’ll head outside and take a few photos along Toronto’s beautiful waterfront. Whether it’s a breezy summer day or a crisp, cool, winter wonderland, you’ll soon have some gorgeous photos to share with friends and family. Next, we’ll head back to my place nearby for some free wifi, so that we can edit, upload and share your photos with the world (or just your inner circle, if you prefer!) Over a refreshing drink (water, tea or juice), I’ll show you how to craft a catchy caption and make hashtags work for you. Finally, we’ll explore the ‘gram a little, to find others with similar interests and hobbies. Social media can be a wonderful place to make new friends, and I’m excited to share both the expressive and the receptive aspects of Instagram with you. Ask as many questions as you want while we’re working together... this day is all about you getting online and building your tech savvy, regardless of your previous experience level!
I’m a certified teacher with a wide range of educational experiences. Having worked with students of all ages, I particularly enjoy sharing the joys of photography and social networking with folks who are newer to digital technology. This past summer, I taught a course called “Getting Started with Instagram” at my local library - it was a big hit, especially with seniors, who wanted to share photos with their children and grandkids on social media, but weren’t sure where to begin. No matter your experience or skill level, I look forward to increasing your tech-savvy in an inviting, inclusive, low-threat environment!

Where you'll be
We’ll meet in Toronto’s south west end, at one of the city’s best kept secrets! After an introductory coffee chat and mini-lesson, we’ll head outside to snap some photos along the waterfront. Finally, we’ll walk over to my apartment nearby to edit and upload our photos, and to share some additional refreshment. The view of the lake and city skyline from my balcony is quite stunning - who knows, you may end up snapping a few more photos here!
