Northeastern Illinois University
Having recently been awarded the 2014 instructor of the year at the college I teach at and holding over 17 certifications from Microsoft, Advanced LinkedIn, as well as being a Certified Associate in Project Management and having worked in both the corporate and academic world as a go to person and a trainer, I have a passion for teaching and enabling people to be more effective at what they do. I am available afternoons and most weekends. Optionally a Quick Reference Card can be made giving you step by step directions on how to do the lesson that was covered.
Having volunteered as a guest speaker for Northern Cook County's unemployed, I know how to help people plan a strategy in their job search and land that job. I hold certifications in Microsoft Office 2007 & 2010 with both being a Master designation. I teach interactive classes on Professional and Career Development (Success Strategies) as well as being a Certified Project Manager with experience spanning hardware and software upgrades, orientations and training responsibilities. I am an effective communicator able to explain complex concepts from a beginning to an advanced user. I have been told I have outstanding public speaking skills (I was the keynote speaker at a college's graduation ceremony) and have the ability to motivate, energize, and lead to success. I put technical terms in plain English.
I got involved with computers back in the early 80s and know how to teach the Microsoft Office applications such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and Access as well as other applications, as I once had my own consulting company. Here is a sample of one of the many recommendation letters I received.
“Herb always got it - his customer was the retail sales associate who sold the firm's products. They needed computer support - and at times training in the broad capabilities of the technical platform, but in easy to understand language. Herb, in a very professional and engaging manner provided these services. I would be very happy to work with Herb again.”
I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals.

I had a specific and complex problem with formatting an Excel Workbook and had been searching for help for weeks. The issue would not have been included in an Excel class which would have taken at least a half day or more. In my first interview with "Herb E" he listened patiently to my issue asking questions until he was confident that I had explained everything to him. He asked me to email my workbook to him and he would preview the issue and call me back to discuss the solution. He called within 15 minutes with a clear understanding of the problem and he walked me through the solution(s) step by step. He stayed on the phone as I worked through four or five worksheets on my own and then we recapped the solution until I was confident that I could perform the task successfully in the future. He has the ability to listen and then explain a solution in "layman's" terms; and he has the patience to allow the student to work through the problem multiple ways and multiple times until the student is satisfied. I will definitely use "Herb E" in the future and I cannot recommend him too highly.
After several disappointing sessions with tutors who claimed they could help me with the formatting of my dissertation, I was convinced there was no one out there that could help me. Enter Herbert. Within one hour he was able to explain what I needed to do to create a terrific, concise document. It was that simple.
I was so impressed with his instruction that I recommended him to the other students in my doctoral program. Seriously, if you need someone who is an absolute expert with anything computers, you don't need to look any further than this guy. Highly recommended!
Herbert was patient and extremely helpful at preparing me for my excel examination. Easy to work with and set up an appointment with very short notice.
Thank you and congratulations for passing the certification exam.
I had some unusual needs and requests and Herbert was able to resolve them for me and was patient with my questions. He clearly has experience teaching not just being a good technical resource.
Herbert E. helped me prepare for my new job. I glad he made the time to help me. Herbert made my new job easier.
Thank you so much. Best of luck to you.
I was not disappointed with Herbert E. After a brief phone conversation, he know exactly what I needed. He prepared for our meeting and wasted no time in helping me reach my goals. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn the the ins and outs of computer use. I also learned extra things like using the keyboard to move from one screen to another.
Thank you to WyzAnt for putting me in touch with this gifted tutor.
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.
