About Paul

I work in accounting and have been using Microsoft Office products for more than 15 years. I have created elaborate Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, and PowerPoint presentations over the years. I can educate others on basic to advanced functions of these programs...from using templates to creating macros. I have turned redundant tasks that take hours to complete into 30 second Excel macros that can be done with the click of a button. At my current job, I have turned dozens of 3-4 hour tasks into quick tasks that can be done on a whim. Here's an example: We receive a spreadsheet of hundreds of claims. The one-click macro I created does the following: sorts the data, subtotals it into groups, justifies the columns to view, sets the print area, saves a copy on the network, prints a detailed and summary copy of the report, links the data to a template used by our Accounts Payable department to make the payment and code it for accounting purposes (Bus Unit, Amount, GL Unit/account, Operating unit, Department, Product, etc.), saves the file, and then closes the file. The file is now ready to be used the next week (or whenever it's run again). This process, as you can guess, took hours to do before the macro was created. With the macros I've created, it takes 30 seconds to put in some dates, paste the data, and click a button. Some macros I've created take 30 seconds to run...but those 30 seconds save 4 hours of work. Let me make your life easier by creating macros for you.

I still have former bosses and colleagues contact me with Excel questions. Everyone in my family comes to me with their questions as well. I have even done over-the-phone and online tutoring many times.

I am an Eagle Scout. In my spare time, I love to play baseball with my fours kids. I enjoy juggling, camping, jumping on the trampoline, swimming, fixing things around the house, heading up disaster relief groups, spending time with my beautiful wife, wrestling with the kids, and volunteering with the Boy Scouts.

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 Excel

I have created many Excel workbooks with vlookups, pivot tables, macros, data validation tables, etc. that have increased productivity substantially. Just last week I created a macro that takes about 15 seconds to run but it eliminated about 8 hours of work. If learning the basics is all you want, then we can definitely do that.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook for 10 years and have been the go-to person at my employment when a question arises. I've taught its functions to others. I've implemented Office 365 with a former employer and taught co-workers how it works. I've created groups and tasks to increase efficiency.
