About Karen

I have over 20 years of experience working with Excel for a living as well as proof reading many different kinds of documents. You need real world help with your data, not a cookie cutter example that doesn’t work in your situation or is too complicated to translate to your environment. Give me a data or document puzzle and I will teach you how to solve it. As such, my approach to tutoring will be targeted to what you may need at the time, while ensuring you receive the background to enable you to apply the skills independently in other situations. I can start you from the ground floor, or several stories up based on your current level of experience. I am a Certified State of Ohio Fiscal Professional, Team Lead, and earned 3.8+ GPA in all academic endeavors. I have won many composition awards and consistently receive the highest rating possible in communications throughout my career.

I have worked in the financial processing, reporting and analysis world for over 20 years, both in the private and public sectors. I have multiple awards and official recognition for improving processes, accuracy and efficiency which have resulted in saving millions of dollars. I have been a team lead and professional mentor for most of my career. Data integrity and meaningful data analysis are key to providing end users with the right tools with which to make sound, informed decisions. If you are in the business world, you already know this. Yet the task of providing this information is still cumbersome, confusing and too often manual data entry instead of automated processes where Excel can do all of the work for you. I want to help the working adult and student on the spot, with the specific topics they need when they need it. My excellence in Excel as well as my experience teaching others in a casual, fun way can help you, too.

My field of study and passion in college was English, having placed in all honors and advanced courses. During my career, I have held the position of technical writer for both the financial and IT functions. Currently I am responsible for reviewing and editing narratives, letters and data that go to senior government officials, the public and the media. I also am responsible for reviewing and testing financial and IT process manuals, environment testing responses and sensitive communications to various entities.

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 have over 20 years experience in creating meaningful, accurate and telling Excel reports for a wide variety of audiences. I am highly skilled in advanced formulas and creating charts and graphs to tell the big picture story of trends. I also am skilled at creating forecasts, how to greatly decrease margins of errors, how to ensure data integrity and how to use data that might be meaningless to an audience and turn it into something they can easily understand, while always ensuring no data has been lost or misrepresented.
