I will provide you with the skills and understanding you need to feel confident in Microsoft Excel. First I'll go over the elements and menu basics. Then we'll practice formatting cells, using formulas, inserting rows and columns, creating graphs, exporting to .csv files, importing .csv files, and creating practical documents like budgets and inventories. Along the way, I'll show you some formatting shortcuts to save time creating functional, yet attractive spreadsheets.

About Joy S.

I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

Great first lesson. Joy introduced the tones (which had previously scared me!) in a sequential and well-paced way. She had good resources for the lesson and assigned homework to practice what we learned. Excited to practice and continue learning!

Has so far taught me so much about Mandarin and is a really great teacher and if you want to learn Mandarin then this is the teacher you should choose to learn it.

Joy is lovely and has been very flexible with my schedule. You can tell she loves photography and enjoys teaching. If I was more of an online learner I would have rated the session a 5. I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time.
