Lloyd Stensrude is an excellent trainer who has thorough knowledge of Word 2 13. He is patient with less knowledgeable students and carefully guides them through the modules as well as any problems without skipping a beat. The topics that are covered give the students excellent examples of Word 2 13 functions and features to better their understanding of the software..
