Tutor Extraordinaire

Neal is the ultimate professional technical Tutor, possessing a skill level of 5 on a scale of 1 to 5. If you are looking for a highly experienced teacher on specific topics, encountering problems with application or devices, or in need of general familiarity and usage guidance, Neal is your man! Finding the best tutor for your needs in Wyzant can be a very difficult task. Success is based on both the student and tutor having a mutual clear understanding of the scope and desired outcome. Prior to Neal, I interviewed 5 potential tutors, all unable to fully grasp my vision or needs. My requirement encompassed Office 365 and desire to fully integrate and synchronize Outlook across six different systems. Neal, a keen and patient listener, fully understood the challenges and the technical nuances involved in my request. His technical knowledge and multi-component system architectural experience enabled him to easily navigate my Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Device Settings and Maintenance levels across all devices involved. Neal has a deep technical understanding of systems architecture and relationships with all applications involved. In my case, Outlook was unable to synchronize email, calendar and contacts from multiple Windows 10 devices, and multiple iPad and iPhones. At the onset, Neal immediately diagnosed my Wi-Fi was performing at 20% of its capacity. He then diagnosed conflicts and system suboptimization due to back level maintenance levels across iPhone, iPad and the Windows 10 devices. He also diagnosed that levels of Microsoft 365 programs were out of date. Neal carefully and very quickly addressed each of these issues, resulting in all my devices performing better, and related issues ultimately resolving themselves. Neal is highly versed in the following products and systems: • Microsoft Word • Microsoft PowerPoint • Microsoft Excel and the full Microsoft suite of products • Apple iCloud and Google One Drive • Adobe Family of products • Remote access of products • IOS on Apple iPhone and Apple iPad • Apple’s Mac Book Whether you have an application issue or a multi-faceted complex system problem, Neal will diagnose and fix it in an efficient manner. Neal has a wide range of system support tools at his fingertips. He utilizes a highly effective command center enables him to remotely (with your concurrence) access many systems at once. Neal has extremely effective and engaging communication skills. He communicates complex information in a very easy to understand consumable way. I found his communication style to be motivating, interesting and fun. I highly recommend Neal as a Wyzant Consultant. I consider him a a very valuable and important member of my support arsenal, and I’m sure you will experience the same!

Hardworking and caring tutor

Neal, helped me with formatting my paper for one of my social work classes in my graduate program. After getting approved for my topic by my professor, Neal helped me pull together a great outline on how to format and proceed with my paper. He truly showed he cared about the assignment and truly wanted to help. He took the extra time outside of our zoom session to find additional resources and helped me format my paper based on the assignment listed in the syllabus and an example essay. If you're feeling stuck on how to start or even proceed with a paper or ever want someone to just look yours over and review, Neal is a great choice!

Great Tutor

Neal made an interesting and engaging presentation to my computer class of undergraduate university students. Neal talked about starting out in a career, resources of career counseling, internships, how to do well in a job interview and new directions for their careers and life. The lecture was well-received and feedback from the students was that Neal’s presentation was both a wonderful and enlightening experience and would help them for their future careers!
