About Gary


Bio

I am a patient and understanding tutor who takes a sincere interest in those that I help. I can take the complex and make it seem simple. With a BS degree in meteorology (and minors in both math and English), and over 15 years of professional experience as a senior analyst (where I learned and use all MS Office applications - Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook), economist, and tax preparer, my expertise is in MS Excel/Word/PowerPoint/Access, math, science, English, writing, and tax...

With a BS degree in meteorology (and minors in both math and English), and over 15 years of professional experience as a senior analyst (where I learned and use all MS Office applications - Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook), economist, and tax preparer, my expertise is in MS Excel/Word/PowerPoint/Access, math, science, English, writing, and tax preparation.

Through my work, I use all of the MS Office applications, write extensive analyses and a monthly economic newsletter, and tutor students of differing ages and backgrounds.

The most important thing for a student is to understand their material. With both knowledge and understanding, you will be empowered to conquer anything you want. My goal as your tutor is to help you obtain that knowledge and understanding in a fun way.

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I have over 11 years experience in using Microsoft Excel on a daily basis. In my current, and prior two positions, on a daily basis I have had to pull large amounts of data from in-house databases (using Business Objects or Synergy Analytics) and download this data into Excel. I have had to create many types of reports and presentations with the use of Excel.
Tax Accounting,

Tax Accounting

My first position upon graduating college was as a Tax Preparation Advisor for the IRS, where they trained me in tax preparation and tax law. After being with them for nearly 18 months, I then moved to private industry, where I have worked as a statistician, economist, and analyst/manager of analytics ever since. For all the years I have worked in private industry, I have continued to do income tax preparation "on the side", where I have had steady customers through the years. I estimate that I have prepared close to 500 income tax returns since 1980.

Knowledge Tutor Who Offers A lot of Important Insight

Gary helped me with a term project on Microsoft Access for my Computer Information Systems course. I had little material done prior to this but he was able to assist me with the majority of my project and was very hands on with his teaching. Im pleased with the outcome of my project and I would recommend him to anyone needing help in Access or any other Microsoft application. Price per hour is very reasonable

Thank you very much Gary! I am extremely happy with the end result. The pivot table you helped me crate works perfectly! I would highly recommend Gary to anyone who needs help with Excel, pivot tables, vlookup, etc. Gary is very knowledgeable, patient, explains every step. I felt very comfortable working with Gary and would recommend him to anyone who needs help understanding Excel formulas and functions.
