I have taken and taught courses in Excel 97-2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and Office 365. I teach formulas, statistical functions, tables, formatting, v-look-ups, etc. I honed these Excel skills while working as a Financial Analyst with Goodyear and an IT Auditor with Rockwell Automation.

Let's work together and let me unlock your potential!

About Matthew
Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

My subjects include:
ACT, SAT, PSAT, NMSQT - undergraduate admissions
GMAT, GRE - graduate admissions

Our son's Algebra tests have improved significantly with these tutoring sessions. Matthew did a great job accessing current knowledge level and working to catch our son up on what he did not understand as well as helping prepare for ongoing quizzes and tests. Very pleased and will continue with the tutoring!

I work with computers (Windows / Mac) for almost 20 years. Expert in office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Pages, Numbers, Keynote).

Started early to use Excel for business and created sheets for an executive of a big German Company when I was 19.

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

A. I will conduct a survey to obtain the student's experience level.
This will facilitate the student to understand their strengths and weaknesses
in Excel. It will also contribute to the student accessing their needs for more
training than initially intended.
B. I will use business scenarios so the student can develop their own Excel
worksheet skills.
C. Lessons can be customized to the student's skill level.

I've been tutoring professionally for over 30 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate Microsoft Excel student.

I have a unique lesson plan that can teach you to become proficient with Microsoft Excel in just a few hours. Most of my students learn the basics of Microsoft Excel in just two or three hours and are amazed by just how proficient they have become in such a short amount of time. However, I customize each lesson to go at the learning speed of the student. So, we can go as fast or as slow as the student would like.

Want to create a worksheet? Interested in learning to create a budget with charts? A dashboard with text, buttons, images, charts, and more? Want to learn to work faster and more efficiently by employing keyboard shortcuts?

Send me a message to see how I can help you become proficient with Microsoft Excel!

About Jason
I've been tutoring for over 30 years, so I have the experience to get you where you want to go. I can help you learn all about HTML, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook), Mac OS, and even iPhone and iPad. I specialize in working with adults and people easily frustrated with technology.

I have always been the go-to-guy for friends and family, and have been tutoring people to help them learn to use their computers since 1985. I can teach you how to use your computers and devices, successfully repair files, create, edit, or give the finishing touches to work/personal projects.

Are you an adult who feels overwhelmed by the tasks of creating projects on your laptop or personal computer, or maximizing the use of your iPhone or iPad? Then I am your go-to-guy!

I am pati
ent, and we go at your learning pace, as fast or slow as you want, and you will not feel overwhelmed. Naturally, it takes a few times practicing the usage of a program or an app before you feel confident with it, and I am available to help you. I enjoy teaching people about their computers and it gives me joy to see them master the tasks.

This was my first lesson and I will be back.I am an older learner and too old to have learned computers in school since typewriters were the in thing.So as a middle aged professional everything I know has been self taught. Jason showed me things I never knew existed.I told him "I feel like a kid again".He is patient and allows for you to ask questions.If you were intimidated or scared to get started...he is the right tutor.I highly recommend Jason.

Aleksander helped my son prepare for Regents Exams in Math (Algebra, Geometry and Trig.), English and SAT. The results were spectacular. He graduated high school with 98% average in Math and English. He scored above 1500 on the SAT and was accepted into a school of his choice with a scholarship. Aleksander guided us through with college application process, helped fill out FAFSA, and helped my son select a major he is happy with. Great instructor! Great person!

Alex helped me with my College English/Writing and Accounting courses. His lessons were vigorous, but fun and very engaging. Thanks to him my grade went from C to A.

I was so happy with the progress that I asked him to tutor my niece in high school math. Again, he surpassed all expectations. She ended up having one of the highest grades in her class.

I wholeheartedly recommend him!

Do you want to get Excel to dance off your computers screen? Have you used PivotTables? In every job I had throughout my life I was working with a computer, I always found myself teaching my colleagues on the computer. I've also taught several family members. The computer has positively changed my life: it allows me to organize myself and my thoughts, it helps me present myself more clearly and professionally, and it gives me a creative outlet.

I enjoy teaching and sharing "tricks & tools" I've acquired on the computer. After my daughter was born, I decided to work in the IT business so that I could balance my home and business life with more flexibility. I truly enjoy working with a diverse clientele with a variety of experiences. I have been teaching Excel since 1997 and enjoy using it outside of the classroom. Let's explore Excel together to se what you can gain from it.
