Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

General Computer

In high school, I was the kid who took all my notes on a laptop when everyone else was using pen and paper. I live and breath technology and would love to share that knowledge and joy with you as well!


My very first computer was a PowerMac 6100. I have since owned an iMac, MacBook, as well as the latest MacBook Pro. I've worked on most operating systems, and can help you customize the following programs to fit your needs: iTunes, iPhoto, iCal, iMovie, Safari, Mail, Address Book, Time Machine, and many others. I can even help you create automated workflows, or run a virtual PC so you don't need to miss out on PC-only programs. I have over 15 years experience with Macintosh, and would love to help you master your machine as well!

Microsoft Outlook

As much as I enjoy organizing my own life, what really gets me fired up is helping other people organize theirs. Specifically, I can help you organize your email once and for all using folders and automated filters. We can manage and color code your calendar so you always know what's coming up next in your schedule. I've been teaching Microsoft Outlook for 6 years and using it for 12, so whatever your needs are, I've got you covered!

Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windows can be a little tricky at times, but it is extremely powerful once you know how to use it. Whatever version you are using, I will teach you universal concepts and shortcuts that will help you get more done in less time. (Warning: your friends and colleagues will be jealous, so get ready to spread the Windows love!) I've been using Microsoft Windows for over a decade, and have taught hundreds of people. Contact me today to tame the Windows beast once and for all!

Public Speaking

I have taught thousands of students, including rooms of 250 people at a fortune 100 financial institution, as well as a workshop at the Microsoft flagship store on 5th Ave in NYC. I have also performed standup comedy at Caroline's and Gotham in NYC. I have consistently been told that I look extremely comfortable speaking in front of people. I will teach you what I've learned over the years, and help you look and feel amazing on stage.

Could not have asked for a better tutor — Shir's diligent and thorough work as my tutor not only helped me learn the fundamentals of VBA, but gave me the assurance that my money could not have been better spent. Shir was prompt in contacting me and replying to my emails and was incredibly flexible in setting up tutoring sessions to accommodate my last-minute needs. He guided me through developing a program that helped me get a promotion a ...
