*The original OUTSCHOOL YOUTUBE TEACHER,*  I've been teaching on Outschool over 6 years.   

With over 30 years of communications and education experience, I started a professional communications consulting company in 2014 to help businesses make content for their digital marketing strategies for business YouTube channels. As an educational content maker for a university and multi-media University Prof, I have taken live workshops facilitated by MattPat (Game Theorist), Alex (LowSpecGamer), Maxim Jago (Adobe), LCShadowLady, Matt Gielen, Mike Cook, Tahir Basheer, Cliff Fluet, Ben Jeffries, Hank Green, Rebecca Parham, Matthew Vandeputte, Jeremy Vest, Andy Burgess (Metfilm School), Jesse Latham (therealshookon3), Claudio Barbiero, William Hodgett (GoPro), and many more from travelling the world for multimedia work.

My teaching style is instructional.  I want to get the most information out there and pass it over to learners to try on their own.  This style is reflective of my teaching style and background; I teach part-time in multimedia, journalism, communications, media and film at two universities.  I have been fortunate enough to take video making and YouTube workshops to enhance my expertise, including copywriting and law for Youtube. 

I have over 20 years of experience as a certified teacher and because I am serious about the use of video making for and as learning as well as using YouTube with my students, I am able to develop a great online classroom climate with learners and help them learn what they need to get their YouTube channels on a successful path.

You do not need to take an Outschool course in order to open a Youtube Channel.  According to YouTube, children under the age of 13 should be supervised by an adult.  Because of Youtube privacy and age requirements, it's illegal for any adult to open a Youtube or other online account for a minor.    It takes 5 minutes to open a channel.   Here are directions:
