  • " Steve completed the task of solving my delima that arose from an email I received extremely quickly and resolved my concern completely. As he had some additional time available Steve was also able to teach me how to create new e-mail 'files', which I had been needing for some time, plus he helped me to be knowledgeable about a group of old discs that I had been reluctant to dispose of. Through the process today, Steve displayed the ability of being a very good teacher with exceptional instruction ability. His ability will be helpful in future!!! Tks "

I highly recommend her as a teacher. Julie Domvile, writer, blog manager "
