About Joshua


Bio

I started my career with Trammell Crow (now part of CB Ellis) as a property accountant, I demonstrated this tenacity for providing consistent reporting which was recognized by a key customer who had their entire property portfolio be transferred to me. It continued at Darden Restaurants, as a Sr Financial Analyst and Sr Compensation Analyst, where I took on wide-ranging projects requiring flexibility and creativity, including budgeting, financial performance analysis, competitor research,...

I started my career with Trammell Crow (now part of CB Ellis) as a property accountant, I demonstrated this tenacity for providing consistent reporting which was recognized by a key customer who had their entire property portfolio be transferred to me. It continued at Darden Restaurants, as a Sr Financial Analyst and Sr Compensation Analyst, where I took on wide-ranging projects requiring flexibility and creativity, including budgeting, financial performance analysis, competitor research, and new software implementation. At Siemens, I continued my track record of flexibility by stepping into roles not previously foreseen and yet successfully accomplishing, including foreign currency management, cash management, and facilities financial management.

I have an undergraduate degree in Finance with a minor in computer science. I've worked in Finance & Accounting roles for over fifteen years. I've used Excel as a primary tool for most of my career.

I've volunteered with Adult Literacy League for two years where I tutored adults with various degrees of reading ability. I've also been a member of Toastmaster International for seven years where members improve their public speaking skills by frequent practice and receiving continuous feedback as well as helping others to reach their public speaking goals.

If you are working towards a career in Business Administration in general and finance and accounting specifically, it would be my privilege to help you reach your career goals.

My formal academic training includes one undergraduate speech course at Valencia Community College and a graduate level presentations course at Rollins College. My informal training includes seven years of active membership in Toastmasters International, an organization dedicated to helping people improve their public speaking skills. I've used my speaking expertise to give hundreds of speeches, presentations, and interviews over the years, in business, volunteer, and academic endeavors. When using visuals, PowerPoint is my go-to move. I have 20+ years of experience using this powerful tool and will share my knowledge not just on how to create a compelling presentation, but how to make you a compelling presenter. Whether you are a student, professional, or other self-motivated learner I can help you make your presentations 'pop' and make you a presentations 'rock star' in your organization.

I have been a volunteer reading tutor with Adult Literacy League for over two years assisting adults of all ages and abilities become confident readers. It is truly rewarding to help open this door into a world that was previously closed to them because they could not read. If you are an adult learner, I can help you reach your reading goals. Whether looking for help with reading for school, reading as a life/vocational necessity, or reading just for pleasure, I want to help. All I ask is that you bring a positive attitude and willingness to work and I will take care of the rest.

So smart!

Joshua was so great, patient and kind. So lucky to have met him! I was really pleased with the project we did together and I look forward to our next class together!

Shalom, 1 lesson with Joshua

Excellent Tutor

Joshua helped me with my excel assignments. Very knowledgeable and good at explaining. I would recommend to anyone who is struggling with excel. Thank you so much Joshua, it was a pleasure to have you as my tutor !

Cindy, 4 lessons with Joshua

Great teacher and patient

Joshua is an awesome tutor. Joshua knows what he is doing and has great practicing tools to help me in my conquest.

John, 4 lessons with Joshua

Very patient and knowledgeable tutor

Joshua worked with me on excel spreadsheets. He was very patient, explained the formulae and concepts very well and was genuinely interested in getting me to understand what he was teaching me. His teaching was better than the tutorials my professor referred me to use on YouTube.

Ruki, 2 lessons with Joshua

Patient and Clear Instructor

I have been working with Josh for a few weeks now and have truly enjoyed his instruction. First he is patient. I have asked him many questions that causes him to go back to an earlier point or topic. He always makes me feel supported and comfortable no matter how basic my question is. Josh also suggests multiple ways of doing things in excel which always prove helpful. In addition he will also suggest other ways to improve my skills. I have learned a great deal from Josh and recommend him for those who want to increase their level of excel knowledge and skillset.

Chris, 4 lessons with Joshua

Great tutor!! Knowledgeable and patient!!

Joshua helped me out tremendously during our tutoring session. He taught me how to use a pivot table and how to apply data from a table into a chart in excel. Joshua was also very patient. I would highly recommend Joshua as a tutor for excel!

Robert, 1 lesson with Joshua

Very knowledgeable and patient

We cover ways to better visualize data and how to create charts on Excel. During the session I learned about new visualization techniques one of which is conditional formatting. I liked the fact that he was proactive and came prepared. He was also time conscious and covered the assignment within the allocated timeframe. He paused at time to make sure I understood the material and walk me through the steps. I would highly recommend Joshua to other students and would definitely book him for other sessions.

Delphine, 1 lesson with Joshua

Great tutor!

I am a graduate student who needs more confidence in speaking about my research. Joshua listens to what my needs are, and prepares lessons to meet those needs. Then he shares the resources so I can go back and review. I am impressed!

Heidi, 10 lessons with Joshua

Patient and Helpful

Joshua is a great because he’s calm and understood my hectic mindset. He walked me through my problems so I could understand it and truly get it… even when I thought it was wrong - he was professional and helped me understand the formulas in a different way. Thank you.

Rene, 2 lessons with Joshua

Experienced, supportive, professional, oustanding!

So far, we've been covering the basics of public speaking. But I know that this is only a tiny part of what I can learn from Joshua. He cares about my success as his student, it shows plainly! Although we only had 2 lessons so far, my confidence already boosted up. Joshua is kind and professional, and at the same time, he is giving me a constructive feedback that's helping me to develop this new skill. I would recommend this tutor to anyone who seeks to improve themselves. Whether you will end up speaking in front of people or not, Joshua will help you to find your new, improved version of yourself and that, by itself, is priceless.
