About Mike

I spent 8 years teaching at a computer school. In that time and through hundreds of classes, I was the highest ranked instructor there. What makes me different is that I learned on my own. Trial and error (many of them). It gives me the students perspective which where I teach. Since those days I have been an executive through the C-level and taught staff in the same manner, always advancing their knowledge and career. My purpose is to make sure my students get it!

I have been a coach since I was 18. I have also participated in more sports than I can name here. Much like my teaching, I learned most of it on my own. Became a scratch golfer with limited coaching in high school. I played and coached water polo, swimming and diving for many years. I have learned that every student is different and needs to be coached differently. My eye for determining that over 20 plus years of coaching is second to none!

I taught at a computer school for almost 8 years in each of these subjects. Since then, I have been controller and CFO of multi billion organizations and trained the accounting staffs in each of those roles to use and understand the applications. I have taught classes from beginning to advanced including VBA.

I played golf in high school and college and even pursued the PGA tour later in my life. I swam and played water polo in high school and college as well as being a CA state lifeguard at one point. Because I learned how to play sports on my own it gives me a students perspective. I know the struggles as I struggled at one point myself. I have an innate ability and patience to help you be the best you can be!

To this day, I still have students, athletes and parents that recognize me for the improvement in their computer skills and athlete achievements! You could be the next, so don't wait.
