Hello,

Thank you for considering me as a tutor. I retired from the University of California after working 39 years as a director of administrative departments at both UC Irvine and UC Riverside. I used Excel extensively for many years and decided to offer my service as a tutor/instructor to those who wish to increase their expertise. I have tutored for about one-year now and my clients have included professionals in construction, auditing, and manufacturing.

Excel is a powerful spreadsheet and business tool that has the potential of increasing your productivity or understanding of a company’s performance. Having that knowledge - and the ability to illustrate and share it - allows you to make better decisions or even to increase your company’s revenue or your own earning potential.

In addition to my "real world" experience, I also earned a certificate in advanced software technologies with an emphasis in database technologies from UC Irvine's University Extension.

I look forward to the opportunity to discuss your instructional needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Microsoft Access

I completed the "Advanced Software Technologies Certificate Program with an Emphasis in Database Technologies" through University Extension at the University of California, Irvine. This program featured classes in Microsoft Access, which I attended and completed. During my tenure as Director at both UC Irvine and UC Riverside, I developed and used Access databases to track and produce reports on parking citations and vanpool participation. I am qualified to tutor clients in Microsoft Access because of my formal education in database technologies, and my many years of work experience using Access.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel to develop department budgets and budget forecasts, to track large construction projects (up to $50M), and to generate and print reports and graphs to convey information to executive management. It is important to structure Workbooks and Worksheets properly so that data tables, reports and graphs may be used to record, analyze or share information. In many cases, a spreadsheet can serve as both a data table and a report.

I have also used Excel to schedule projects and to track progress or performance. Gantt Charts using Excel? I can teach you how.

Microsoft Outlook

I used Microsoft Outlook extensively in my previous employment at the University of California, Riverside. I have successfully tutored clients in Microsoft Excel, and have extensive knowledge of all Microsoft Office products.

Michael’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Michael. View all of Michael’s resources

I highly recommend Michael Hiltzik's column in the Business Section of today's Los Angeles Times Sunday Edition (July 28, 2013), titled "Should college stay offline?"  Mr. Hiltzik's column will cause one to think about the value of "live" education and one-on-one interactions versus the promises of online learning.  While we have yet to grasp the potential that... read more

In at least one case, Excel will change the “Automatic” font color from black to white for better contrast if the background fill color is too dark. One may observe this by clicking on a Worksheet tab and selecting a darker Tab Color. The default “Automatic” black font will change to white. I use this example to explain a “good practice” when formatting cells – especially for Column or... read more

In Excel, different Conditional Formatting settings in Excel may be applied over the same range of cells. I created an Electoral College spreadsheet to illustrate this feature to my clients. In one column with the heading “Red or Blue”, either the word “Red” or the word “Blue” is entered depending on whether the state voted Democratic or Republican during the 2012 Presidential Election... read more
