About David

The computer, internet, or Excel is new or difficult for you, or you just want to be able to do more. Maybe you're excited to learn, maybe you're anxious or overwhelmed. Regardless, I can be by your side - with friendly support, never-ending patience, and a gentle commitment to empowering you.

I'll start by listening. What's important to you? What do you want to learn and why? Where do you find things difficult? I won't stop listening.

Sometimes I'll explain or demonstrate something, then step back while you get comfortable with it yourself. Sometimes when you encounter an obstacle, I'll do nothing, sensing that, in that moment, it's important to let you work through it yourself. I'll never get tired of reviewing something with you - as many times as you need to revisit it, that's how many times we'll revisit it - but always new, always responsive to where you're at in that moment.

More and more, you'll find yourself able on your own to do what's important to you.

My background:
---
I've tutored many people, both professionally (Math, Statistics, Statistics software) and otherwise (volunteering teaching Adult Basic Education, volunteering teaching free SAT prep for low-income teens, helping neighbors and family members with computers and internet, helping colleagues with Excel, etc). My students appreciate my extraordinary patience and how I explain things simply.

I went to college at the University of Chicago, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Economics. I worked in healthcare finance and healthcare economics research before realizing I preferred working directly with people. Since then, I've been a tutor, a Health Coach in a primary care clinic, a Personal Care Assistant to a physically disabled man, and trained and mentored pre-med hospital volunteers in their patient care skills.

I've used Excel in academic, finance, and clinical healthcare settings, for many different purposes - from simple calculations to creating graphs to statistical analysis to creating computer programming code to creating and maintaining a system to help hospital volunteers collaborate in monitoring and supporting their patients.
