Shir's diligent and thorough work as my tutor not only helped me learn the fundamentals of VBA, but gave me the assurance that my money could not have been better spent. Shir was prompt in contacting me and replying to my emails and was incredibly flexible in setting up tutoring sessions to accommodate my last-minute needs. He guided me through developing a program that helped me get a promotion at my company, a global, multi-billion dollar private firm. Shir teaches in a way that's comprehensive and easy to follow, and I still can't believe how much I learned in the six hours he tutored me! His dedication to his work and Excel transcended every interaction I had with him. I truly could not have imagined or asked for a better tutor.
I approached Shir with an Excel spreadsheet that we were having trouble with at work. The spreadsheet is crucial to the daily function of my business, but as my business grew, I was spending up to 45 minutes per day sorting the spreadsheet manually. I felt like there had to be a formula to simplify the process, but no one at my office, nor I, could figure it out. I got on a call with Shir one afternoon and explained our issue - the call took no more than 30 minutes. He asked very applicable, efficient questions, and I didn't have to "over explain" our issue. He really made an effort to understand my business and all parts of WHY we use the spreadsheet. We met just a couple of days after our initial call. Shir completely solved our problem, and created extra benefits into the spreadsheet that we didn't even realize were possible. He was extremely prompt, efficient, and easy to work with. Shir explained things in a way that I easily understood - he was really prepared. Shir is very knowledgeable about Excel and all of its capabilities. He was nice and friendly, and reasonably priced for how much he helped us. I would definitely use his services again, and would also recommend him to a friend for sure.
I work at a digital marketing agency, and Shir helped me create extremely impressive dashboards and reports to be used every week and every month. It used to take me hours or even days to prepare, and now it takes only seconds! I can't recommend Shir highly enough.
My session with Shir was great and I have nothing but positive things to say. He is patient, understanding, extremely knowledgeable and makes complex processes digestible for Excel neophytes. Cant recommend this guy or sing his praises enough. You'll be happy you chose him.
Shir created customized VBA examples and exercises for me that helped with an important project at work. He was professional and very personable. I highly recommend him.
Shir has a very easy-going manner and when he explained new ideas/techniques he had a good grasp on how quickly or slowly to go based on my responses. He is clearly super-conversant with Excel, and had no problem understanding what aspects of the program he should teach me based upon my goals for a particular project. I learned a lot today and highly recommend him as an excellent teacher.
This was my first time using Wyzant, so I didn't know what to expect at first. However, as soon as I met Shir he immediately put me at ease with his warm and friendly demeanor. He was prompt and professional; we actually started 15 min early and he didn't even charge me for it! The best part was the way he broke down complex topics into bite-sized chunks that made it much easier to understand. I actually learned more in a single session with him than I did after months of boring classes. I recommend Shir to anyone who wants to save themselves a ton of time and money
"Shir is awesome! I had an emergency Excel problem and he came over the very same day to help me solve it. I work for a large company and they wanted me to analyze 15,000 rows of data. I was so overwhelmed, but as soon as Shir looked at the data, he knew exactly how to find the answers to my boss's questions. I don't know what I would have done without his help. For anything Excel related, Shir is your man!"
All I can say is WOW. Shir not only met expectations but truly far exceeded them. He was extremely knowledgeable and completely blew my mind with what he showed me. It is one thing to know something and another to teach it. He certainly had a very solid understanding of Excel 2010 and also taught it very well. He was enthusiastic and patient. We went at a good pace and he actually made it really fun. He showed me some challenging things but not too much, but enough to get me thinking beyond the norm. I will certainly use some of the new things that I learned tonight, at work tomorrow. Shir is the 4th Excel tutor I've had in the last ten years and he is the BEST one by far. Nobody even comes close. The in depth detail was truly remarkable. Shir knew things about Excel that I did not even think were possible. What he showed me was practical and easily applicable to my work. My company even hired some Microsoft certified people to teach Excel but I found it dry and very un-useful. Shir really has no equal. If you have a fairly good handle on Excel and want to take it to the next level, Shir is your man! I just want to say many thanks to WyzAnt and many thanks to Shir!
Our project was a fairly complicated Excel based simulation program with a fair amount of VBA programing. Our key programmer left suddenly due to family illness. Shir answered the call - and not only completed the task at hand - he went beyond our expectations. Shir also explained and taught me some very valuable program tools. I really enjoyed his style and approach to our problems. Shir was always available to us and worked hard and fast until the assignment was completed. I give Shir the highest recommendation.
I always felt intimidated using my computer as there was so much I did not know. Shir has helped me to understand and feel comfortable with the programs I needed to know. I am enjoying using my computer instead of feeling it was a chore I had to do. I am very grateful for this and look forward to learning more.
Shir is a whiz when it comes to converting Microsoft Excel files into a Microsoft Access database. He showed me step by step how to go from database design to implementation. He even taught me a bunch of useful shortcuts along the way. I saved so much time and headache by working with Shir. He knows his stuff!
Shir is a pleasure to work with! He is very knowledgeable and definitely has a gift of teaching. Prompt and professional. I am amazed at how much I have learned and am able to do in such a short period of time. I look forward to my continuing education with him!
