I have taken many courses here before and have recommended the school highly to friends and associates. I love that the instructors are all so knowledgeable about their subjects. The private PCs and Macs are a huge plus for me(many schools only offer online or you must bring your own laptop); they are fully-loaded and help the learning process immensely. Every instructor here is patient, thorough, and makes sure you have a full comprehension of the subject. This is the only computer learning school I attend in NYC.

Jaclyn Herzog

Loved the Wordpress class. I learned so much in one day. Dan makes it all very clear and explains everything above and beyond. I'm so excited to start using Wordpress with my clients!

Victoria Greiss

Scott was an excellent teacher. He provided a clear and easy-to-understand overview of WordPress, and gave me the confidence needed to update my website. Highly recommend this class and this teacher.

Lisa Kaplowitz

Scott was very well-spoken, informative, and gracious with numerous questions and requests to repeat portions of the lesson. Also brilliantly explained complex concepts when it came to topics that may have been beyond the scope of this course.

Jenève Dubé, Kraus Marketing

Great first stepping stone for someone with little to no experience in WordPress. You'll leave the class with the ability to get your own simple site or blog up and running in no time.

Kathleen Estes

Scott very clear and very articulate with the information he transmitted to the class. He took time to wait for the class to ask questions and answered with great description. He's an excellent instructor.
