Valery is incredibly patient and came well prepared.

Valery left me a study guide and explained how to use cell references on multiple sheets. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with her!

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your kind feedback, Victoria. I'm looking forward to our next meeting, too! Have a great week!

Wonderful tutor!!!

She was amazing!! I needed to do this fabulous itinerary and she came to my home, helped me learn how to do it and my bosses loved it the next day-yay! Also, today working on excel and then outlook. Cannot wait for more lessons-she's kind, patient and knowledgable! I can't say enough:)

Tutor responded:

Robin, you are an absolute joy to work with. You are kind, considerate and professional! I enjoy all of our sessions together.

Great!

I will be using Val again. Very patient, she explained the problems in a user friendly way. Easy to talk with.

Janis, 1 lesson with Valery
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Janis! That's how I strive to be -- patient and easy to understand. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave this comment, and look forward to meeting with you again when you need me!

Unfortunately not skilled enough

Valerie was not able to teach the requested Lesson! She didn't know how to teach the the requested Skills Pivot Tables!

STEFANO, 1 lesson with Valery
Tutor responded:

I have many other students who *know* that I can teach pivot tables and have for years. This is not true and I have several current and former students who think -- and know -- otherwise. You were not even in the room when I was giving the lesson. I am very capable and certified to teach all levels of Excel and many other computer skills. I am sorry to have to write this, but what you wrote was very unfair and simply not true.

Great Tutor

Very patient and always has practice data to leave behind. Valery has a great deal of knowledge and can quickly explain any problems. I really enjoy her training. I am learning a lot and on point to reach my goal with computer training. I will definately consider Valery in the future.
