About Parag

Dear Prospective Student,

My name is Parag S. and I am currently a Senior Financial Analyst for a large fashion company in NYC. I graduated from Pace University with honors earning a BBA in Finance and a minor in Economics while maintaining a 3.3 GPA. While attending Pace University, I had the opportunity to hold three finance related internships where I began learning and using Excel. As I moved from internship to internship, my Excel skills were improving exponentially. As I began my career, I started to learn from others in my field which continued to move my excel skills at levels beyond my years.

During my first Full-Time position with OMD (large media agency) I saw an opportunity to make a process that was in place for years and apply my Excel knowledge to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of this process. I used various formulas and methods, ranging from vlookups, sumifs, and pivot tables to shorten the process from 1 full day down to 3 hours. After achieving this result, I realized that Excel was something that I enjoyed using and was extremely good at. Today, I've helped my current company's e-commerce division build forecast, budget, and monthly close files to help run their business. My background in Finance is extremely helpful in these scenarios as it helps me achieve solutions at both a business and technical standpoint.

My goal is to pass my knowledge over to others to help them succeed in their current professional roles. Whether it is data entry related or Finance related, I am here to show you the various formulas within excel and how to streamline processes so that you can find more time to spend on more meaningful projects in your day to day job. I've tutored in the past, so I have the patience and experience in successful teaching methods. In addition, in my current role, I have a financial analyst reporting into me, who I've been working with to help build their Excel skills. I currently work Monday - Friday 9am to 7pm. I am flexible with my hours outside of my regular work week. I am open to teach you through various means, whether it is via phone, online video, or in person at a coffee shop/library. Contact me regarding what works best for you and I can be sure to make something work that will be very beneficial.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you and I look forward to helping you build your skills.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I am qualified to tutor in Microsoft Excel as I am an every day excel user. My experience ranges from building Forecast, Budget, and Monthly finance templates using various formulas (Sumifs, Vlookups, Indirect, Lists, and Macros). I can help show prospective students how to use excel in the quickest way without touching your mouse, as Excel is more efficient when using various short-cuts, for example group (shift+alt+right arrow, or pasting values/formulas for a given group of visible cells). I currently have an analyst reporting up to me whom I've been showing various excel tricks and formulas so they can perform better at their job.
