Paul R.

Teaches at NYIM Training

In the 1980's, Paul was working in a large retail store selling TV's, VCR's, and all types of computers. In 1988, Paul needed a major change in his life, so he started to work in ofices using his typing skills and found that he had a natural ability in bookkeeping and became a full time bookkeeper until 1997. A computer school, looking through the yellow pages trying to find someone to teach some software to some of their students, stumbled across his name and called him to teach QuickBooks for two hours. Paul interviewed, was hired, and taught 2 hours. This was the final career change for Paul. He has been teaching accounting including Peachtree and QuickBooks since 1998 with his own clients and at business schools in the New York City area. Paul believes that the more questions students ask in the course of a class, the more that the students will learn. He also knows that accounting and bookkeeping can be boring to some people, so that when Paul teaches classes, he tries to make it interesting using real life situations and have fun at the same time as teaching a serious subject. "I am here for the students and if the students don't learn something substantial at the end of the day, then I haven't done my job."

The instructor Paul was very knowledgeable and approachable. I would recommend the class, but if you do not have a bookkeeping background, I would suggest taking a bookkeeping class first.

The class was very informative & Paul was very knowledgeable. I’m sorry I didn’t take this course before my company converted to Qucikbooks. I would have been very helpful. I’ll be back n August for part 2.

I enjoyed the class very much and learned so much. The teacher explains Quickbooks in a very easy to understand format. I attempted to leave a review after class, but it wouldn't submit (not sure why, it kept saying something was wrong). I plan to sign up to the Level 2 class soon to learn even more about Quickbooks.

I own two businesses and this class was exactly what I needed to get started in QuickBooks. It's true you can learn the basics from online tutorials or books, but I was spending a lot of time researching and not getting the answers I needed. It was so helpful to have a live person guide you through each step, provide context and background in set up and data entry, and answer specific questions. Paul is very good teacher and extremely knowledgeable about the tools and the business. I would recommend this class to anyone getting started in Quickbooks for any reason.

The teacher was great, responsive to questions. It was a good intro to bookkeeping with QuickBooks. I do think teaching both the Mac and PC version together was clunky and not truth in advertising. I'm not sure I would have paid $200 for this course if I knew I would spend some of it listening to a PC tutorial on Quickbooks. That definitely cut into time for all of us.
