I have been teaching Microsoft Excel for more than 15 years, and I enjoy introducing beginners to Excel as much as showing current Excel users how to get the most out of advanced Excel use.

About Liz
I enjoy helping people learn how to work with computers (Mac or PC). I have been teaching for 15+ years, and work comfortably with beginners, seniors and business clients.

I am often told I am a very patient teacher. I adapt my teaching style to each student and I can provide printed instructions for you to use after our computer lessons. I can help you learn what you need to know to use a computer: for work, for school or for yourself.

I have been teaching QuickBooks at universities, community colleges and small businesses for more than 15 years (QuickBooks for PC, Mac, and QuickBooks Online).

I have taught Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Word (for both Windows and Apple/Mac computers) for many years. I also have quite a bit of experience teaching MS Access, MS Project, MS Visio, MS Publisher, and Adobe InDesign, Adobe Drea
mweaver, HTML for web pages, and Filemaker Pro.

Please note: Students in Manhattan and some other New York City locations, suburbs and New Jersey, I am willing to travel farther with an added amount for bridge and tunnel fees. Please use the "Ask Liz a Question" button to send me a message, so we can discuss your location, and the price required for me to travel out to you.

Need help fixing your Excel Spreadsheet or setting up your Spreadsheet? I'm here to help.

About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

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 individuals, small businesses, and corporate employees to become proficient in using their computers and applications since 1985, and I can help you do the same. I have the experience to get you where you want to go. I can help you learn all about Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook).

I'm very patient and I pace all my lessons at the learning speed of my student - as fast or slow as they need so they don't feel overwhelmed. Naturally, it takes a few times practicing the usage before someone feels confident, but I can help you become proficient in using your applications. I enjoy teaching people about their computers, and it makes me happy to see them become proficient in using their applications.

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!

Knowledgable and EXTREMELY patient
Christopher came here to teach me pivot tables which I needed to know for work. I had no knowledge of what they were or did and when he left I had an understanding which I did not think I could achieve in such a short time. The patience he showed was wonderful as I was nervous and he put me at ease which is not an easy task! He also had to figure out what I need to do (in Excel)when I do not completely understand it myself but by the time he left, he understood and I am confident that I can succeed now and it is all because of Christopher!

About Kawin R.

New York, NY

Hi! I'm a tutor specialized in formulas and navigation in Excel. If you're currently taking an Excel course, I can guide you through that as well.

I'll explain in plain English, how to use formulas as vlookup, how to build pivot tables, how to analyze data, and how to make spreadsheets look relatively readable.

About Kawin
Hi! I'm a statistics/Excel tutor with experience in AP, undergrad, MBA, and calc-based statistics. I know statistics can be unintuitive, and I'll work with you to reach your goals. I'll explain concepts and questions in coursework using relevant examples and plain English.

I'm available for long term tutoring as well as immediate assistance. I'm also used to teaching/drawing diagrams on online platforms, and can guide you through the process.

I’m a graduate from Cornell University and a former Accenture statistical analytics consultant. I received my Master of Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Operations Research.

While at Accenture, I’ve taught clients introductory statistics to give them the tools to understand business data. I enjoy teaching Math, Statistics, and general digital marketing/statistics. I also have experien
ce in statistical data mining and script programming using R.

I’m passionate about making sure my students are equipped with a deeper understanding of seemingly difficult topics. I like using a combination of visuals and situations relatable to a students’ interests. In my experience, abstract topics like Statistics tend to be easier to understand when people visualize a concept on paper or online.

In my spare time, I follow the NBA and NFL. I’m also a semi-professional hip hop dancer.
