“I attended the Massachusetts Society of CPA’s Microsoft Excel Boot Camp and could not have been more impressed with Marie McCooey’s breadth of knowledge.  It was an extremely effective course and I left with more practical and useful information than other courses I have taken in the past.  I would highly recommend Marie as a trainer for a wide variety of Excel users who want to improve their skills with functionalities they will use every day.”

“I have hired Marie multiple times to train the Bryant University staff on Microsoft Office applications, specifically Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access, at multiple skills levels. Each session was tremendously beneficial to my staff. Marie comes to each session very well prepared. She assembles an agenda that is tailored to the learning requirements of the attendees. Marie makes interaction with the participants a focus of her session, and excels at ensuring that all participants are able to participate meaningfully during the training period. Marie is a pleasure to work with, and her consistently excellent reviews by class participants keep me calling her for additional sessions.”

“I took Marie McCooey’s Advanced Excel class yesterday. This is the third or fourth of her classes that I have taken. Her expertise and knowledge of the subject speaks for itself. Her classes are structured, but relaxed and friendly and they hold your interest. While they move right along, Marie is always alert to anyone who might seem perplexed. She encourages questions, and all questions, no matter how simple, are answered respectfully. She addresses people by name, making the experience personal as well as informative.

“She promptly follows up by email any questions that were beyond the scope of the class. Marie’s classes are always chock full of tips and tricks that are helpful in day to day work. Yet, I always leave feeling like I would like more and it is evident that she always has more she could pass on. Thank you so much for these useful classes that are presented in such an appealing way.”
