Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel in technical work for 30 years. I taught college freshman how to use Excel. I have also tutored individuals in use of Excel. I was hired by IKM company to develop a test that employers give to job applicants to gauge their knowledge of Excel. I am familiar with Excel's advanced capabilities like VLOOKUP, INDIRECT, IF, array formulas, tables, pivot tables, and macros. I also teach VBA programming in Excel.

Good Excel tutor

I recently returned to workforce after long hiatus raising kids. My new job requires a lot of work with excel spreadsheets. I was spending too much time trying to figure out how to do things. He helped me with shortcuts and getting the spreadsheets that I’m currently working on in order.

Lisa, 1 lesson with Kirk

Excellent and helpful

Kirk was extremely patient with me on engineerings processes. He took the time to understand my problem and was fully prepared with notes to help me understand. I was very impressed that he took time to look over documents I sent beforehand and had ready prepared notes. As much as I am ready for this class to be over, I am glad I have found Kirk as a tutor. Highly recommend.

Vanessa, 3 lessons with Kirk

Knowledgeable, dedicated teacher

KIRK has been a lifesaver on tough VBA and excel programming problems. He sticks with you until you understand the material. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with Excel or VBA.

FE Engineering Exam - Knowledgable and Motivating Tutor

One of the most important steps in the Civil Engineering profession is getting licensed, and passing the Fundamental of Engineering Test or FE Exam is the first big requirement. Preparing for that test can be an overwhelming and sometimes an intimidating task; however, getting the right tutor to keep you on track and focused when studying can make a big difference. Thankfully, I found Mr. Kirk B. He is been great!. Mr. Kirk B. is a knowledgable tutor who has made difficult topics such as Enviromental Engineering, Fluid mechanics, Hydrology and Hydraulics, a lot easier. Kirk has thought me clever technics and new approaches to overcome this kind of test in a more efficient and faster way. Mr. Kirk's methodology has made me feel more motivated and confident about passing this difficult test. Thanks very much Kirk!
