With over 11 years working experience prior to coming to the classroom, developed throughout my career with Palmetto GBA & BlueCross BlueShield of SC, provided me with a valuable work experience and skills that allow for me to provide expert assistance to both traditional and non-traditional students.

As an individual with very, very, limited knowledge and little interest in Excel, I am now ultimately motivated in this subject, thanks to Walter! I learned more than anticipated after my first lesson because of his professional approach, sensitivity and attentiveness to my subject needs.

Presently, I am more confident about Excel and will sincerely recommend him as a skillful, caring, patient, and helpful tutor!!
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.
