Tina McDuffie, aka WebWoman™, relocated with her husband to South Carolina when he retired from the Navy in 2003. While in San Diego, California, Tina taught computer science at community colleges and continuing education centers for seven years. A web pioneer, Tina was the first to teach web design & development at community colleges in the San Diego area. She went on to write curriculum for many web development-related classes for Grossmont College, Cuyamaca College and Trident Technical Continuing Ed Center and developed an Electronic Commerce degree program for Cuyamaca College.
Tina continued teaching here in South Carolina at Trident Technical Institute Continuing Education and at the book & game store she owns with her husband. Both McDuffies also regularly teach their customers how to play modern board games. These skills translate well as many of the games are very similar to computers and technology in terms of complexity.
Tina is well-versed in many computer and technology subjects. Some of the classes she’s taught in the last 23 years, include:
- Web Design, HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
- Adobe Creative Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Dreamweaver
- Microsoft Office: Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access
- iPad/iPhone Tips & Tricks
- Web Server Management
Tina has also provided one-on-one training and consulting on a variety of web-related topics, including:
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
- Social Media Marketing
- Internet Marketing
- Web Site Usability and Accessibility
In December 2017, Tina and her husband Tim reopened a new game store. Here Be Books & Games features three game rooms and is particularly well-suited for holding computer & technology classes.

The Glass Meeple
Tina’s blog, The Glass Meeple, provides board game reviews and run-throughs. Turns out teaching people how to play modern board games is a lot like teaching computer science. The goal of Tina’s game reviews on The Glass Meeple is to give you a good idea of how a game plays, what it’s like, its theme, etc. so you can make a more informed decision as to whether the game is a good fit for you or someone you love. The Glass Meeple is an ongoing project with new reviews posted monthly.
