Patient and experienced tutor made computers fun

Jim's classroom and one- on- one teaching experience showed. He was very prepared with every topic I wanted to cover. He showed me practical examples of computer skills for exactly what I needed. After the explanation and doing tasks together. He had me complete an assignment start to finish. I thought that was great! It proved I learned to create documents and got to practice before I left the session. Also,very patient with my questions . Thank you. I will reach out to you again.
