Hi there,

I am a very advanced Excel user and I have been using Excel every day in my full time job for the past 16 years. I am presently working as a Senior Financial Analyst in my full-time job and create complex financial models, reports, and analysis for executives and management.

I am very proficient at using Excel (2010, 2007, 2003) and literally know hundreds of shortcuts and formulas. Many of my colleagues & friends come to me for help in Excel. I create very complex spreadsheets with complicated formulas, and can teach you much of the same.

If you are a beginner or novice user, I can teach you the in's & out's of Excel and how it will assist you in your school work or job. If you are an intermediate user, I can teach you formulas, shortcuts, macros, and how to be much more proficient using Excel in your job.

I am very patient and will go at your pace and answer any questions - no question is a stupid question!

Please contact me if you are looking to learn or improve your Excel skills or need consulting in creating, fixing, or improving your own financial models. Rate is negotiable. Thanks!

I also can tutor basic Financial Accounting as I have an accounting degree, and I can tutor general computing such as Windows 7, Windows XP, email programs, word processors, etc.

Some feedback from previous/current students that have hired me in the past.

"Beginner to Advanced Instructor, very patient!"
I have used Excel before but was really rusty at it when I met with Ivan. I had a job interview and needed to prep for it.
I have always been afraid of Excel, why I don't know other than you have to change your way of looking at things. Ivan explained each tab on the toolbar (ribbon) so that I could easily understand and differentiate the commands. Answered Questions but still had a clear, concise format in which to follow along easily. Thanks Ivan !! I couldn't have done it without you!

"Ivan, I thought your instruction was perfect for me. You were patient and it was helpful for me to try to figure out my errors. When I went back into the sheet, I was able to recall most of what you had taught me, and even was able to translate quite a bit of it to the ’03 format. Thanks, look forward to our session next week."

"Thanks so much for helping me with my Excel model yesterday, your formulas fixed my problem and saved me so much time and stress. Your first formula you helped me with made the entire 3 hours worth every penny! My boss will be impressed. I appreciated you showing me the shortcuts and helping me create a few macros to make my job faster! I need to digest & apply what you taught me and will call you a week or two to continue...this is great...Thanks!"
