I have been using Windows XP since it first came out. I have been teaching Windows (all versions) in the classroom since 1994, and online through computer tutorials since 2002.
I have been volunteering on AllExperts in the categories of Microsoft Access, Visual Basic, and Weight Loss for many months now.
Personally, I am self taught. I've learned everything I know from books and trial & error. If I don't know the answer, I know how to find it.
I have over 20,000 happy clients worldwide.
