One-on-One Computer Training
Get the attention you need on a computer project you choose. While the Community Education program offers group computer classes on many subjects, one-on-one lessons can be a better way to learn for some people. Select your topic and call to schedule your training. Some topics our instructor can assist with are:
- basic computer skills
- email basics
- software applications such as MS-Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access or Outlook
- navigating the internet
- completing a mail merge
- assistance with your iPad or other Apple device
There are many possibilities! All instruction will be in a computer lab on the MCC-Longview campus. Both day and evening sessions are available.
Note: Upon your initial inquiry, we will discuss your specific needs so that our instructor is prepared to work with you. We require each session to be a minimum of two hours, which we have found to be beneficial for both student and instructor. Two people may attend together, if they are interested in the same training. Fees for the sessions are payable in advance as follows:
- One person, 2-hour session: $100
- Two person, 2-hour session: $80 per hour, per person

We will be featuring “The Navigator” (1924), starring Buster Keaton and Kathryn McGuire, for this year’s Silents Night entertainment. Hilarity ensues as Rollo Treadway (Keaton) and Betsy O’Brien (McGuire), both wealthy and spoiled, attempt to survive on a deserted ship adrift at sea. The ship runs aground on an island inhabited by unfriendly natives, who take Betsy captive while Rollo is underwater to patch a hole in the ship. Rollo returns, rescues Betsy, and they escape from the ship in a small dinghy. Just as the dinghy starts to sink, they are rescued by a Navy submarine that surfaces right underneath them.
Join us in the MCC-Longview Cultural Arts Center for this FREE event Thursday, November 2. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.
