She is kind, patient and does not get upset with my lack of knowledge. She helps me to find the answers to all kinds of questions with this process. I really appreciate and value her.
I am so happy to have found Susan! I knew very little about navigating Excel, and after 4 lessons, I am getting it! She is patient and does not rush me. I am starting a new job where I will be needing to use Excel efficiently, and I really appreciate knowing she is there to guide me. Her knowledge is extensive in the Microsoft Office systems, and I will continue taking lessons with her as time goes forward. I highly recommend Susan as an on-line instructor!Show More

Susan is an amazing teacher. Not only is she exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable, but she is genuinely interested in her students' success. Her calm and reassuring approach to what can be overwhelming for many makes her the perfect match.
I have been a part-time Computer Science instructor at Clackamas Community College for 18 years and had the great pleasure of working alongside Susan Edwards when she was teaching there.
I have performed peer reviews of her classes and have watched her guide students with wide experience differences deftly. She is engaging and her lessons are always content-rich. She teaches from a very practical perspective and shares important insights and time-saving techniques on Office products, or any app she teaches, to ensure utmost skill and productivity .
I have also taught from her teaching materials and always found them to be clear, concise and containing lesson plans that engage students in real-life situations which makes the learning relevant to future needs.
Susan is a team-player and a great communicator as well. She has a wonderful sense of humor and a kind, patient style and demeanor.
I think anyone who takes a class from Susan Edwards will benefit on many levels and will find her reassuring and responsive teaching style very conducive to their learning.
Ms. Susan a teacher who cares about her students wellbeing as well as their success. I could not have had a better teacher than her. Thank you Ms. Susan for all you have done to enhance our life and future.
I took a Computer Basics class with Susan at Clackamas Community College several years ago. I knew very little about computers, and was a little intimated at the time. I was in my early 70's. There were about 20 students, young and older, male and female, and some had serious handicaps while others had previous computer experience. Susan has a way of welcoming her students as they arrive in the class each morning. After a few sessions she seemed to know what each one needed to pass the course and succeeded in making sure that happened.Show More
Susan is an excellent instructor! She knows her curriculum like the back of her hand. I learned more then what was expected to. Susan gives great feed back and emails back very quickly. If you are looking for an instructor that wants you to succeed and learn, Susan Edward's is the teacher you want!Show More
I have taken classes from Susan Edwards since 2014 till March of 2019. Her teaching is great and she is very patient with the student or students. I will be taking a class at Clackamas Community College this coming fall term. I am going to have Susan work with me over the summer on reviewing Access the Microsoft program so I will have a better understanding of the program. I have taken computer basics to some advanced computer class. I have taken Microsoft word, excel, and power point from Susan as well.Show More
To start, she is ALWAYS smiling! Even if you can't see her, you can feel the smile.
I have used excel for quite some time. I understood the basics needed to make a VERY basic spreadsheet. After taking Susan's class, I ended up learning WAY more than I have ever been shown or taught.
Her amazing teaching style allows her to work with virtually any level of knowledge. She is caring, and always takes the time to ensure your questions are answered.
I am able to manage more expenses as well as other information using just excel as well as give amazing PowerPoint presentations that are more than an ugly background and horrible looking text!
