Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

I can help you with a variety of topics in Excel. If you are completely new to Excel, I will teach you the Excel environment and elementary concepts and neat features of Excel, including entering data versus formulas, absolute versus relative cell referencing, populating cells easily, formatting tricks, using multiple sheets, etc. Beyond the elementary operations, I can also teach you some of the more powerful capabilities of Excel, including creating charts, using the mathematical, financial, and statistical functions, table manipulation and lookup functions, embedding complex logic into formulas, conditional formatting, etc.

Per Calc tutoring with Fassil

Fassil is great - 5 out of 5 rating. He is patient and does not judge. He covered all of the areas I was having problems with. Will be seeing him again.

Fiona, 7 lessons with Fassil

Clearly explained the challenging topics

My son had missed a few days of school, and calculus had started to get away from him. Within one hour Fassil clearly explained the challenging topics and got my son up to speed.

Wayne, 1 lesson with Fassil

A great math teacher

My daughter is EECS student in Berkeley, she had a lot of difficulty studying probability, Fassil's deep math knowledge help her solved a lot of problems. He is very patient and well prepared for her tutor lesson. My daughter said she wish she had him when she started this subject. Thanks Fassil.

Nancy, 17 lessons with Fassil

Fassil is great!

He is very patient and makes learning fun. He is an invaluable resource for my kids over the long term and also just before exams. He's great at getting to the heart of concepts and helping my kids think for themselves.

Susan, 80 lessons with Fassil

Excellent Probability and Satistics Tutor

Fassil was a wonderful tutor for my upper division college Probability and Statistics course. Very knowledgeable and thorough, Fassil was also patient with me and took the time to make sure I understood the material. My course grade improved and I felt much more comfortable with the subject matter after our tutoring sessions. I highly recommend Fassil's services.

Elizabeth, 5 lessons with Fassil

Great for Inferential Statistics

Fassil was my tutoring partner this past quarter for an Inferential Statistics course. The curriculum was intense and I was exposed to the SPSS software for the first time as well as new concepts, which would require immediate application. Fassil was patient, skilled, and an invaluable resource to me as I navigated the course. I would highly recommend his services and will be engaging his expertise when I complete the advanced course along the same lines. A great tutor!

Melanie, 21 lessons with Fassil

Great Tutor! Money Well Spent

In just three sessions, Fassil was able to clear up a ton of confusion that has been building all year! My only regret is that we did not find him earlier in the year. He is very calm and patient and really helped decrease the overall level of anxiety and frustration.

Melissa, 3 lessons with Fassil

Very professional

Fassil stepped in to help my son with College level Calc II. It was a course that he had to pass to complete his transfer to UCSD. It was very stressful but Fassil worked with him patiently and effectively. We are happy to say that our son passed and will be attending UCSD in the Fall! We are very grateful to Fassil for the expert help and highly recommend him! Thanks Fassil!

Robyn, 7 lessons with Fassil

Making Math Fun

Fassil has worked with both of our sons over the years on higher division math. He manages to make both the subject understandable and fun. I know they enjoy the time spent with him and we appreciate the results!
