The Bureau of Private PostSecondary Education has reviewed LRS Computer Techniques and verified us as an Exempt Institution. We do not accept government grants or funds (WIOA). We are paid by private individuals, and Workers Comp insurance companies when we train injured workers.
Previously, the Bureau of Private PostSecondary Vocational Education classified LRS Computer Techniques as a short-term seminar institution, beginning in 1994.
Patient, easy to understand teachers
We have 3 goals in our teaching. Same goals you have--
1) Make computer skills easier. 2) Replace 10 steps with 2, if possible. 3) Make your documents look better.
Our teachers keep the instructions simple. From basic skills to legal document work.
We aren't "computer experts" who can't talk to people. And we know that people often need to hear things explained two, three, sometimes ten times.
You've done many things that are more complicated than using a computer. Driving a car, holding a job, and building a home, a family, a relationship. So you will also master something as goofy as a computer. You just need someone patient to show you how.
It's how you learned everything else. Somebody just shows you, till you get it. You don't need computer theory. Just "here, watch this. I'll do it, and then you try it."
Easier, Better Computer Skills
"Being simple" has worked for us with lawyers, job upgraders, injured workers, students and writers, seniors and retired people. It's the best approach with any skill, from word processing and spreadsheets to speed tricks, Internet skills and new designs for your document, newsletter, or PowerPoint presentation. It can all be easier and simpler.
How fast does the class go??
The class goes as fast or as slow as you need it to be. We don't rush you when you're trying to understand a skill. And we don't slow you down when you're ready to learn the next step.
When is a private lesson or small class best?
LEARNING SLOW TODAY I want to ask questions when I don’t get it
In small classes or 1-on-1 sessions, you’re free to ask questions–the questions that go unanswered or unasked in a room where 20 people compete for instructor attention and time. And our instructors encourage questions–we don’t just “put up with” them and act impatient, the way many computer teachers do. We simply don’t hire the impatient “computer experts” who intimidate their students and who clearly don’t like to teach people. We do like it, and we find the way to give the skill to you, with however many explanations you need. That’s how we learned too, and it's what we hope to find in whoever we ask for help–a little patience.
LEARNING FAST TODAY I don't want to be held back by other people
No speed limits in these classes. If the teacher can focus on just helping you to get it, the class goes at your speed. When the only questions come from you, you get answers faster. Another thing: In 1-on-1 or small class format, you do not only learn the "regular" skills more quickly, but if you’ve learned the whole 3 hour lesson in 2 hours, there’s no reason the instructor can’t show you some extra tricks.
TYPICAL LEARNING I understood the other stuff but not this!
Most people are a mixture of slow and fast learner. You understand some things right away; other things take a while. This is the best reason for individual or small class teaching: it’s flexible, slowing down or speeding up at your pace. The teacher can adjust to how you are learning each skill. If something doesn't make sense to you, we stay on that skill until you're confident. If you get it right away, we move on. The same way you learned everything else.
