I have 2 decades of experience teaching Computerized Accounting. I have taught QuickBooks at A.S.A college in Manhattan New York. I have made my lessons available to job training schools for adult education and have helped place hundreds of students in good paying jobs using QuickBooks and other software that they learned in my class. I am a permanently licensed teacher by the New York State Education Department. I am also a Certified QuickBooks Pro adviser. I have made these videos by determining what my clients needed and how effective they were in real life situations. I enjoy helping students turn frustration in to a feeling of comfort and satisfaction with QuickBooks
