Bio

What drives me as a tutor? Helping people change their lives for the better. Whether it is a major “rock their world” revelation that opens up new opportunities to them or they learn a new skill that helps them do their job a little better, people I work with have the chance to make a change.

What drives me as a tutor? Helping people change their lives for the better. Whether it is a major “rock their world” revelation that opens up new opportunities to them or they learn a new skill that helps them do their job a little better, people I work with have the chance to make a change.

I have over 20 years of experience as a software trainer both teaching classes and working with people one-on-one (tutoring). I work with adults at all experience levels with Microsoft Office and help them learn what they need to know to accomplish what they need to do. I have worked with all experience levels and can teach you what you need to know. I have worked with beginners through advanced software users. I have tutored everyone from people who have never used the program to research scientists who wanted to know how to get Excel to do things Microsoft didn’t imagine anyone would want it to do.

I have a Masters from Johns Hopkins University and a Business degree from Grove City College. I am an outstanding software trainer because I not only teach functionality but also help students learn at their pace. I hear the questions that people actually have, not just the ones asked out loud. I have patience and think the only dumb question is the one you do NOT ask.

Microsoft Excel is the most used software program in the business world and lack of knowledge of this program should not hold you back professionally. Contact me and we can talk about what you want to learn and how I can help you get there!

Highest recommendation

Laura is great. She understood that she was dealing with someone who needed basic help in some areas and was feeling frustrated by new versions of programs that contain extraneous and confusing details. I recommend her highly.

Deborah, 2 lessons with Laura

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Laura is so knowledgeable. She guides the whole lesson and I learned so much. We went over everything in detail. I learned the basics and tables. She has a blog and sent me links to what we went over in the lesson. She is great. I am very, very happy!

Kellie, 12 lessons with Laura

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She is patiently teaching me excel for general understanding and work application. She send homework for me to complete between sessions and we review it each session. I am not a "math person" and she is able to work around that easily.
