I provide detailed lessons and guidance in Beginning Excel, Formulas and Functions, Charts, PivotTables, Pivot Charts, Data Analysis and developing macro-enabled Excel applications. In sessions with me, you can learn the basics, special features, tips and tricks and the advanced features of Excel. I provide skill practice and skill demonstration exercises at the end of each lesson level. My teaching is tailored to your level, speed and what you want and need to know so that you can be successful using these applications for your specific needs. I have tutored and taught from 16 to 90 years-old online and in person, one-on-one, and in group settings.
