Victoria has been an inspiration to me. I was upset when I lost my business and had to go back to applying for Administrative Assistant/Executive Secretary in the business world previous to owning my own business of 4 successful years.
Due to the economy, I have been unemployed for 3 months now, even though I have extensive experience. That was not the problem. In order to get ahead at Age 50, I knew I had to be proficient in Word/Excel to keep up with younger people. Victoria has taught me in a way that I look forward to practicing every day on my own, knowing my success will come because of her tutoring, patience and the fact that I am a tough cookie and she exudes an easy presence about her that calms me down. Also a great listener with regard to the issues I have at hand.
Victoria is an excellent tutor. She has brought me back to life and put me on the path of being the successful person I know that I am.
