Computer Class Testimonials
Instructor is very knowledgeable. Class just whizzed by! Paul M.
I waited until I turned 50 to take these classes due to pricing. I love photography and have two wonderful cameras but didn't know how to use them fully. I now understand the settings and different ways to use my cameras. Lee is a wonderful teacher who explains things in ways even I can understand. I can't wait until the next class on photo editing after that I am sure I will find another class or six to take! Lisa Y.
Very happy with what I learned in MS Windows. J.W.
Instructor knows his subject (e-Bay). Has a patient personality. Does frequent interviews to reinforce what was taught previously. Edna B.
I learned a lot in Intro Elements that I have been able to apply at home. I still need work-so I will sign up again. Carol H.
Will definitely take more computer classes. C.B.
Kelley is an excellent teacher for Windows 7. Her strategies for teaching are outstanding. She gives examples and uses repetition appropriately. She is patient with us and brings the content to our level of understanding. The Community Center is fortunate to have her as an instructor. Thanks Kelley! You are a great teacher. I enjoy your enthusiasm and free spirit! You are awesome! Opal F.
I learned more about my computer, and Windows 7 in the first two weeks, than I picked up on my own in 15 years of using my computer. David was very knowledgeable and patient with us students, while taking us step by step through our computer operations, programs and shortcuts. Donald W.
Fred was very knowledgeable and always willing to answer any questions. Shared a wealth of information that was good for everyone. Learned to try different things with my camera and be more comfortable with taking pictures. Great class. Thanks. Vicki W.

The instructor is excellent for the Windows XP class. He has the patience needed for this type of class. He took the time to answer questions until someone understood the answer. Handouts were very good. Dave B.
