About Steve

Hi everyone,

I have more than 10 years teaching and tutoring in schools and business settings and another 20+ using computers and these applications. I am very patient and am able to identify the real learning need and therefore address the problem quickly allowing my students the fastest methods to improve.

My formal education is a Bachelor’s degree in Math with a Minor in Accounting and a Secondary Teaching Certificate in MA and CO. I also have coursework at Northeastern University in Boston, MA towards a Masters in Computer Science. I have formal teaching experience in middle and senior high school as well as adult teaching in Adult Ed programs and corporate settings. I teach Windows, MS Office, Access, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and other programs.

Some specifics besides general computing are:

Word: Mail merge, Tables, Columns, Indexing…
Excel: VLookup, Graphs, Sorts, Formulas, Pivot Tables..
Email: How to manage multiple email accounts, even within GMail, but also others.
Cloud: How to set up and manage cloud storage accounts...

Of course you want to feel comfortable with your tutor before you meet, so please feel free to send an email to get started. I'd love to learn about you and what your learning goals are.

I guarantee my work. If for any reason you are not satisfied with a session, then that session is free. By the way, the online tool is awesome and works like a charm. My office is Huntington Beach, CA. I look forward to chatting with you about your computer learning needs!


Have an awesome day!

Steve

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.

General Computer

Hi folks,

I have been using computers since before there were desktops when there were punch cards. I can help with general computing, networking, wireless setups, printing in your home, configuring security cameras and other things you need.

Microsoft Access

Access:

I taught MS Access to corporate employees in my computer training center.

Additionally I created and sold a 20 user sales tracking and quotation system that was deployed at a company with revenues of $10MM and it was used for about 3 years. Not too bad

Thank you,
Steve D.

Microsoft Excel

I have been a user of Excel for over two decades and can help you with general questions and the more challenging parts of Excel like Pivot Tables, Graphs, Lookups, Formulas.

I can also teach you linking other spreadsheets and automatic updates between sheets.

Microsoft Outlook

I am qualified to tutor Outlook as I have taught Outlook in the past to corporate employees in Denver, Colorado for several years.

In addition, I have been an administrator of email programs at different jobs I have held over the past few decades.

I am proficient at Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Webmail back-ends, MS Exchange Server and other mail programs over the course of my career.

Microsoft Windows

Windows:

I have been working with MS Windows since before WFW; Windows for Workgroups...haha, remember that!?! I have trained corporations on Windows, owned my own computer training center in Denver, CO and have been a networking person for WFW, Server, Novel (yes, not MS related). I have used Windows 7, 8 and now 10 as well.

Thank you,
Steve D.

QuickBooks

Hi again,

I have been working with QuickBooks since many versions ago, back twenty years now. I have about 15 years' experience with QuickBooks including Pro and On-line versions. I have worked with non-profits getting them set up as well as conducted consulting to a few firms to help them through some issues. Three of my own companies used QB.

Thank you,
Steve D.
