Welcome to Free Tutorials!

This is just taking off!

Wow, when I decided to start putting some video tutorials and downloadable "tip sheets" online, I thought a few of my former students would be interested -- maybe a family member or colleague -- a random user on the Internet looking for specific help... but wow. My video tutorials on YouTube have gathered 30 more subscribers in the last week, and I am getting requests for specific tips and tricks. I love it!

Best of all it scratches that itch that I have been feeling so long: The need to teach. The need to show someone something that they didn't know -- to help them achieve something they didn't know they had in them. It feels good.

In any event, please feel free to email me or post a feedback if you have specific ideas for tips, tricks, or tutorials.

Remember that I'm just getting this blog off the ground so some of the sections seem a little sparse at the moment. I'm working on that every night.

Thanks for stopping by!

Can you create this tutorials for Mac also. This would be a great resource page for me to send my new (and refresher) teachers to.

Yes, Ma'am. I don't currently have access to a Mac, but I will shortly. Many (or most) of the tutorials (i.e. Word, Excel, Photoshop, Bryce) will work on a Mac as well. If there are specific applications or tools you would like me to cover, please let me know.

It's a Virtual Me!

The original "AskGriff" drawing was done by a wonderful artist [and a student of mine] named Elizabeth Jaramillo. I animated it with CrazyTalk4.
