About Thomas

If you are looking for an Excel Guru or a Photography Guru I am the tutor that can assist you. Let's talk about Excel first. I am a researcher by training with a MBA from Columbia University. I have been working with EXCEL for 15 years as an analyst for businesses. I am also an college instructor teaching students how to use tools like Excel for research and market analysis. My Excel skills include building simple spreadsheets to track inventory or very complex spreadsheets for analyzing mergers of companies.

My focus and style of teaching is very responsive to the needs of the student. I can teach the basics - how to think about using a spreadsheet. I can also teach how to program spreadsheets to automatically process data from multiple sources using the underlying programming language (VBA). My courses on analytic methods for business focused on using Excel for statistical analysis as well. I am friendly, focused and come with decades of experience.

On the Photography side, I am a long time photographer that successfully transitioned to digital DSLRs following the growth and transition of NIKON's product line. My focus is on portraits but I have deep experience in shooting landscapes and equine. Post processing works include Photoshop and Final Cut Pro - both at the advanced level. If you are just getting into Digital photography and want a guide so you can move rapidly forward, I am the tutor for you. I use examples from an extensive portfolio and can help with the basics through to studio and into post processing.

Overall I am an computer applications guru with advanced skills in analytic applications and in digital content creation. Tools of the trade are Excel, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro X, Stata, Powerpoint and others.

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.

Marketing

I have an MBA from Columbia University in marketing management and econometrics. So far my tutees have been pleased with my Wyzant tutoring lessons. I have worked in Marketing for decades.

Microsoft Excel

I have been working with spreadsheets for decades. I have also been a college instructor, teaching Boston based MBA quantitative marketing using Excel and STATA. My skills are practical and focused on getting visually appealing and accurate data reports as well as the use of Excel to assemble & analyze complex research data.

I can teach you the basics or the advanced like how to use VBA to program EXCEL to automate tasks or process complex data. I am easy to work with and have been able to bring many students to the point of expertise in the use of Excel as a business tool.

Photography

I shoot Nikon DSLRs

I have owned the Nikon D40, D80, D90, D7000, D7100, D610, D750 for various shoots and subjects. I usually shoot in MANUAL RAW mode. But I am very familiar with the other modes within Nikon DSLRs. I also use the D500 and the D3.

I shoot portraits that are post processed in Photoshop where I generally use about 7 layers to make the lighting adjustments I am known for. I also shoot horses and horse shows as well as city scapes.

I use Photoshop extensively for post processing. I ran a Photo Meetup in Boston area where we worked with a wide range of photographers from newbies with their first DSLR to pros switching from landscape to portrait and studio work.

I also use the Nikon D750 for video.

Great teacher! Teaches for understanding!

Thomas has now tutored me 4 times and I have not stopped being amazed at all things that he helps me learn. By the end of this lesson I was so amazed with all the things that he helped me understand on excel that I was so excited that I found myself trying to explain how amazing the excel program is to my wife (who does not care about excel at all). With that said Thomas is a phenomenal tutor and
