Our students love us


Jackie taught in a way that was easy to understand and easy to follow, while still sticking to the point, unlike some of my professors. Jackie would also expand on a subject when needed. Jackie made sure her students had a good understanding of accounting terms/lingo before looking over financial statements, and also provided extra help through forms she provided. What was also nice about Jackie’s classes is that we are able to rewatch lessons as many times as needed.
Overall I had a great experience with Jackie’s QuickBooks classes and I am excited to continue on to the next levels.”

“Class went really fast. Sometimes had trouble not getting lost, but she was willing to help out and was patient. I enjoyed the class – Thanks

Very very informative, instantly applicable to my job duties, great resources to take away (hard copy) as well as a great platform for further exploration. Looking forward to the next series!

“Jackie is very helpful and awesome!
I was going to do the QB seminar but 8 hrs a day was going to be too brutal. This was perfect.
I really enjoyed learning from you! You are so knowledgeable about the subject, and had an answer to every question I had. Thank you.
Very valuable class. I have decided that Quickbooks is a little more than I need for my childcare business at this time, but I am still glad I took the course. It helped with accounting and bookkeeping basics and answered a lot of my questions.
Great stuff
Thank you!!
