I enjoy helping people learn how to work with computers (Mac or PC). I have been teaching for 15+ years, and work comfortably with beginners, seniors and business clients.

I am often told I am a very patient teacher. I adapt my teaching style to each student and I can provide printed instructions for you to use after our computer lessons. I can help you learn what you need to know to use a computer: for work, for school or for yourself.

I have been teaching QuickBooks at universities, community colleges and small businesses for more than 15 years (QuickBooks for PC, Mac, and QuickBooks Online).

I have taught Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Word (for both Windows and Apple/Mac computers) for many years. I also have quite a bit of experience teaching MS Access, MS Project, MS Visio, MS Publisher, and Adobe InDesign, Adobe Dreamweaver, HTML for web pages, and Filemaker Pro.

Please note: Students in Manhattan and some other New York City locations, suburbs and New Jersey, I am willing to travel farther with an added amount for bridge and tunnel fees. Please use the "Ask Liz a Question" button to send me a message, so we can discuss your location, and the price required for me to travel out to you.

Worst experience, complete waste of my money. I could write several paragraphs detailing all the things that occurred that frustrated me, but I will just list a few facts: Could not answer most of my process questions. Very frustrating, but Liz said she would get back to me on the 3 specific questions that I very much needed. I made sure to review the still open questions 2-3 times before the end of our waste of time session. She never got back to me, even after several follow-up requests.

No worries, TakeLessons has a Satisfaction guarantee, right? WRONG. Come to find out they will refund any unspent money. Because Liz demanded to get paid for her time, tho, I was 100% unhappy, TakeLessons refunded the $12 booking fee.

I tried and tried to get satisfaction from both Liz and TakeLessons before resorting to writing this review. I guess TakeLessona thinks it is OK for their instructors to not perform and still get paid. So disappointed in both.

As we had just started with quickbooks, Liz is a very informative instructor with a great deal of knowledge towards the program. She has an answer to any question you may ask and is very clear with her response.

This was my first lesson with Liz and I thought she was great.
She came well prepared as to what I needed to review and she is very knowledgeable, patient. The whole experience was very positive. I would highly recommend her.

My Excel lesson with Liz was custom-tailored to my requests and I found our time well spent and informative. I was able to ask questions, explore specific areas and came away with a better knowledge of how to accomplish my goals in Excel. The TakeLessons experience was a great value!
