Topics I Teach


I have 25 years experience working with computers and more more than 20 years experience teaching people how to use them.  

In the right hand column I list just some of topics I can teach you. If you don't see what you want to learn just get in touch with me and I'll give you an honest appraisal of whether or not I can teach you.

In some cases I've had to drop topics simply because I haven't used a particular program in years. That's how it is with Quickbooks. I used to teach it all the time but I haven't touched it in ten years. I even had to turn down the opportunity to teach it at a college in Manhattan because I'd have had to not only teach it, but I'd  have to create the syllabus too.

If if I'm rusty with a program I still may be able to teach it to you if I have some time to refresh my memory of it and I think it will be a popular topic. Please note that if I need to learn a new program or refresh my memory I will always let you know upfront so you can make an informed decision as to whether you want me to teach it to you.

Here are just a few of the topics I can teach you.
