About David

I have over 25 years of experience using Microsoft Excel (with VBA), Lotus 1-2-3 and Symphony (using Macros), Quattro Pro and SuperCalc (an early spreadsheet program based on the CP/M operating system). I am experienced in all versions of MS-DOS and Windows and have some working knowledge of the Linux operating system.

I can help you set up peer-to-peer and small IP-based networks of up to 30 systems in a training and a production environment. I can also help you set up your wireless network.

I have used the above skills in most all my previous jobs to create productivity measurement systems, time and attendance sheets, payroll, workroom floor diagrams, pricing analysis calculators and interactive sales modules. In most instances VBA has been introduced into the spreadsheet solution to enable interactive functions not otherwise available.

I have taught diverse clients looking to enter the workforce or improve their marketable business skills. This has familiarized me with the many issues that may be inherent to the overall learning process.

Knowledge is the power that drives success in any endeavor. I wish to give all I know to your benefit for your success.

In-person lessons

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

DOS

Training in all versions of MS-DOS are available along with installing and running programs under the MS-DOS operating system. My experience with MS-DOS began in 1981 with MS-DOS 1.0 through MS-DOS 6.2 and the illusive MS-DOS 7.0. Previously I used an operating system known as CP/M which resided in the machine's chipset versus on a disk.

General Computer

Learn accepted techniques for doing your own "housecleaning", both virtually and physically. Learn common methods of protecting your system from malware and viruses. Learn methods of solving common computer problems on your own. What is BIOS? What does it do? Why would you ever need to be concerned? Find out. Learn how to add more equipment to your computer. Learn why to upgrade your system and when to buy a new one instead.

Microsoft Excel

All versions of Excel can be covered. Learn how to use Excel's functions, set up a spreadsheet for most efficient operation. How to use drop-downs, set up dependencies for drop-downs. Learn how to protect certain entries from being changed based on the user viewing the workbook. Basic VBA can be taught if desired.

Microsoft Outlook

My experience with Outlook covers Outlook Express beginning with the Windows 3.0 version through Windows 2000. My Outlook experience begins with Outlook 97 through Outlook 2007. My experience with the Enterprise version is limited to Outlook 2000 through Outlook 2007. You will learn how to create and use a default signature containing pictures and HTML and how to attach or imbed files, use Outlook (or another email client) as your default email client and how to retrieve (cancel) previously sent email from the Enterprise versions using MS Exchange.

Tax Preparation

I will share my 32 tax seasons of expertise with you. I am a listed e-file provider on the IRS's web site. What business types can and cannot be filed on a FORM-1040 will be covered. Also which LLCs can and cannot be reported on a FORM-1065. Discussions will include Schedules A, B, C, D, E, F, SE and most numbered forms from the IRS. IRS requirements for helping someone else prepare their taxes and for becoming a paid tax preparer will be covered. You will not learn how to prepare a large tax return, but may just learn how to do your own.
