"If they asked me to give you a grade on a scale of 1-10, I'd give you a 10+ for all the information you've shared with me. Excellent!"

"Today was our first computer class with the tutors at the San Jose Library. We learned a lot and had a great time. [The instructors] are very nice and had a lot of patience for us since we ask a lot of questions and we love to learn new things to support our kids and help our friends learn technology."
