Knowledgeable and kind

Lisa was excellent. I highly recommend her as she showed me many short cuts I can use. Lisa carefully explained and gave me hands on tutoring. She also allowed me the opportunity to apply what I learned.

Michele, 1 lesson with Lisa

Knowledgable and patient tutor.

One of the best tutors I have had. Very helpful with ideas for post inside my social media campaign. Excel spreadsheet and other ideas. The excel spreadsheet is where I knew I would have problems, but this great tutor made it much easier for me to understand. I have a limited understanding of the software and got a lot of knowledge from this session.

Darryl, 1 lesson with Lisa

Knows Her Stuff, Likes her job

Lisa helped me with EXCEL. She knows her stuff AND how to teach. Big thing for a tutor. I would definitely recommend her for any of her tutorial subjects. She is pleasant and helpful.

Mary, 1 lesson with Lisa

Makes Lessons Interesting and Engaging

based on feedback from my t I would say that the lesson was superb. Lisa knows her material and works to make the lesson interesting and engaging. We are eager to continue and learn other areas, such as web design.

Richard, 1 lesson with Lisa

Very patient and knowledgeable. The perfect recipe for me

Well organizing my business and showing me how to take files and create folders and scan into documents. I have a system now so I can begin to be more efficient which is exactly what I needed to start with. We accomplished much more but this was huge for me and explaining things well too. So I am very grateful to have found Lisa.

Yvonne, 1 lesson with Lisa

Very kind and compassionate teacher

If more teachers were like Ms.Lisa America would be the leading country in the world again in education,she opened up my eyes and ears and showed me the proper way that computer information has to be formatted to operate in the search engines and how everything has it's own language but if at the beginning of programming if you have not implemented things in the right way there will be no communication to those you are trying to reach on your computer,she is just one amazing teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Angel, 1 lesson with Lisa

Knowledgeable and Patient

Im so grateful i found Lisa as a tutor. I'm a student at CSULB and she helped me complete my excel and Access assigments with creating a relational database using access and set relationships among tables for my Information systems class. She made the assignment seem easy by teaching me ways i would understand. I recommend lisa! She's truly an expert.

Quite knowledgable, patient and focused

Lisa helped me with Microsoft Office for a computer class I'm taking. She's very friendly and relaxed about the work, and very thorough with every aspect of the work I needed to accomplish, making sure I got things done correctly. Thanks, so much, Lisa!
