"Trainer was great.  Very thorough and descriptive, but the pace wasn't slow.  Was able to follow along in excel as she went through training material."

"...timely, accurate, patient, friendly and affordable. My go-to consultant when I have software or program issues or problems. I have worked with ComputerPAL for years. I highly recommend Maria!"

"As an owner of a thriving business, computer issues are always unwelcome, overwhelming and stressful.

Maria has become a valuable resource I know I can rely on to help me address my computer needs quickly and efficiently. I have worked with Maria for several years and I appreciate both her ability to consistently target my exact needs as well as her friendly and supportive demeanor.

She has helped me use Quickbooks more efficiently as well as assisted me in maintaining my computers' performance. Our last few sessions have been online and I was pleased to find it a secure, convenient and cost-effective alternative to having her travel to my office every time.  During our last remote online session, she managed to get all three of my office computers running faster and spyware free, without distracting me from my many other business duties.

Maria has clearly demonstrated to me her commitment to providing reliable computer assistance and an earnest interest in promoting and supporting my well-being and success."

"Maria is a friendly, approachable and hard-working trainer who knows how to tailor her training materials to the needs of her client. She's exceptionally flexible and easy to work with!"

"Maria is an excellent instructor, with a wide range of computer application knowledge. She is always finely attuned to participant's learning needs. Maria always has control over the pacing and flow of ideas in her classes. This maximizes participant learning and attention, and prevents "red herring" questions that attempt to take the class off track. Yet Maria always makes learning fun. For these important reasons, and Maria's dependability, I would highly recommend her for any computer training project."

"As a busy executive, I needed a technology consultant who could provide training tailored to the very specific needs of my business.  Computer Pal turned out to be the perfect solution.  Through Maria's training and advice, our firm has been able to develop complex business templates and operational and safety manuals in both Word and Excel.   On the personal side, Maria makes learning fun and the process hasn't been intimidating.  To my surprise, even I was able to become an advanced user of Word, Excel and Outlook.  Computer Pal has proven to be an efficient and cost effective consultant for our firm.  At half the cost and twice the expertise of many other consultants, I would highly recommend Computer Pal."

"Maria did an excellent job  working with the training committee to formalize our ideas into a training manual and then conducting the training sessions. Our employees enjoyed her class and felt it was well worth coming in on a "Saturday" for training. We hope to do more training in the future and will certainly use ComputerPal."
