Instructor Biography

Annie C, Social Media Coordinator & Blogger

Greetings to everyone. I never thought I would end up formally teaching others, but here I am. I decided to simplify the learning process by providing my own lessons on particular topics. I am knowledgeable in topics that have to do with relationships, accounting, algebra, computers, Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Software, and others as well. I hope you will all enjoy what I have to teach.
