Solid understanding of Excel basics and its uses. Experience using Vlookup, Pivot tables, Sort & Filter, Formulas & Functions, Organizing data, Charts

About Daniel
I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 10 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attribute
d to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Applied/Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • TEAS and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Outlook • Adobe Acrobat • Adobe Reader • Google Drive • Skype • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills • Checking Work

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

*Cancellation Policy: At least 24 hours notice or charged for full session

My son was having a terrible time with geometry. Daniel worked with him and taught him in a way that he understood. My son brought home a B (Which I was thrilled with because he had been failing the class beforehand). He is wonderful!! I recommend him highly!!!

Daniel was an incredible tutor for Calculus Part 1, for a college course. I received his help a little late in the game but he did not shy away from the challenge. He gave me advice, showed me how to do problems the proper way and even gave me tips on some shortcuts. I would highly recommend him as a math tutor because he is easy to understand, easy to talk to and makes you feel more knowledgeable.

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 for over 30 years, so I have the experience to get you where you want to go. I can help you learn all about Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook), HTML, and even iPhone and iPad.

I've 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'm patient, and we go at your learning pace, as fast or slow as you want, and you will not feel over
whelmed. 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 makes me happy to see them master the tasks. (I don't currently offer tutoring for Mac computers or software.)

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.

About M.
Over the past year, I have taken time to be a peer educator with the Education and Outreach at Arizona State University, while I have also enjoyed the demands of being a senior design student. Not only have these positions allowed me to mature greatly, they have also aided my inter-personal skills. Although I have demonstrated my capability to excel academically, I am fully aware that it is only in combination with my wit, diligence, tenacity, intuitive and problem-solving skills that my scholastic knowledge can be applied effectively.

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.

My students are a mix of: senior citizens with little or no computer experience that are often intimidated by computers, home-office business people who want to work more efficiently on their sp
ecific projects, and people who have some experience but would like to become more proficient. I adapt my teaching style to each of my clients' learning styles.
