How dependent is your business on Microsoft Office and how comfortable are you maximizing its benefits?

Hi there, my name is Yves (pronounce Eve); I have a Master's degree in chemical engineering from ESCOM University, in Paris, France, with 25 years experience in operations, sales, supply chain and financial planning; I operate today as an independent consultant across business functions and tutoring has become my passion.

For undergrad/grad and MBA students, I tutor data analytics (linear programming and optimization models, decision trees and simulations), as well as statistics (probability distributions, hypothesis testing, regressions and ANOVA).

For business professionals, I help advance your Excel skills and optimize your data files; whether you need to impress your CFO/CEO with new dashboards or reports, free up some time by automating your activities through VBA macros, or simply learn how to best use Excel in your daily routine, I am here to help. I am certified MOS Excel Expert (2013 and 2016) and teach Excel for beginners, intermediate and advanced users on Mac or PC.

Contact me for individual online tutoring or on-site group sessions.

I cater to business professionals as well as grad, MBA or undergrad students; I enjoy helping people solving business problems, saving time and costs by creating customized dashboards and reports your C-level will love. I have helped companies reduce their accounting month-end closing times by over 95%, reduce budget timelines by over 80%, reverse-engineer and simplify over-complicated spreadsheets, and much more. To college students, I tutor data analytics, optimization problems in Solver, decision trees, MonteCarlo simulations directly in Excel, or in add-in applications such as Crystal Ball, Frontline Solver or @Risk Palisade; I also tutor statistics (hypothesis testing, regressions, etc).

Microsoft Outlook,

Microsoft Outlook

How effective are you managing your calendar, prioritizing your email, or managing someone else's Outlook? Outlook is the essential organizer for any corporate employee. Whether you are a beginner or you need to learn new tricks, I'm here to help. I have used Outlook for over 20 years working in large corporations as well as in smaller companies; over time I have learned to master all the functions of Outlook (calendar, contacts, mail, tasks) and have helped train executive assistants on their roles as they were learning to handle different people's accounts simultaneously. I teach Outlook basics (email, calendar, contacts, setting up meetings, tasks), as well as advanced functions such as rules, conditional formatting, categorizing items, managing other calendars, permissions, assigning tasks to people, etc. I also will give you a few hints on how to set up your preferences such as signatures, OOO assistant, autocorrect features, manage your inbox size, and many more. Want to learn more? Contact me here.
Visual Basic,

Visual Basic

Are you ready to take your Excel skills to the next level? If so, then VBA (Visual Basic for Applicatons) is for you. VBA allows you to code macros and run predefined routines on your reports, create dashboards and more. VBA is all about minimizing input and maximizing output. And VBA can be fun too: for the adventurous, why not trying to create a Sudoku solver or a tic-tac-toe game?! Hi, my name is Yves; I am an independent business consultant in Austin, TX specialized in finance and supply chain. I help companies streamline their operations by reducing dramatically time to create their reports. I have learned VBA as most people have: on the job. Over the course of my career, I have had to create reports, manipulate large data sets, some times daily. Very quickly, I learned the VBA was going to be my friend. While coding involves a little upfront investment, the returns can be substantial; I have been able to achieve productivity gains of over 1000% with VBA, i.e. freeing up 90% of my time for more strategic projects. Today, I continue to enjoy coding and look forward to sharing my learnings. With me, you will learn basic elements of coding, variables, inputs, outputs, IF statements, loops, importing and exporting data, how to create reports, etc. While I work primarily in Excel, the VBA language is compatible across all MS products (Excel, Access, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook). VBA is a journey; there is always more to learn daily; so be patient with yourself, and most importantly have fun!

Statistics,

Statistics

As a chemical engineer, I have a knack for numbers. Professionally, I use basic statistics on a regular basis (forecast, budget, data analysis, statistical process control). In college, back in the day, I had a hard time understanding the practical applications of statistics. So it is only late that I was able to associate the importance of data analytics with business decisions. Today, I help students (MBA typically) with their data analytics courses. I walk them through optimization problems (Solver), linear programming, probability distributions, simulation models (MonteCarlo), decision trees, basic statistics (confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear and logistic regressions, ANOVA, etc.). The world of statistics is a true wonder and a never-ending learning experience. Right now I am studying Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) normality test. I hope to instill some of my enthusiasm to my students.

In college, back in the day, I had a hard time understanding the practical applications of statistics. It is only late that I was able to associate the importance of data analytics with business decisions. Statistics applied to the public health sector are of huge and growing importance. You see everyday claims made about the efficacy of a certain drug or the results obtained by a certain test group. I help students in their biostatistics class understand not only the various statistical tests and methodology but also how to interpret results. Classic assignments you will face are hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, regressions and correlations. The world of statistics is a true wonder and a never-ending learning experience. I continue to learn and study daily. Visit my Wyzant blog for some free tips. I hope to instill some of my enthusiasm to my students.

brilliant

The best tutor I have yet to personally shake their hand. Brilliant mind and way of teaching one the intricacies of their subject matter. Great with excel and speed.

Patrick, 4 lessons with Yves

Knowledgeable and excellent tutor!

Yves proficient in Excel, very patient and thorough in his approach in tutoring. He is extremely bright and sharp and is able to share some real-life business world examples where formulas being used are applied to solve the problem. It has helped me in growing my career. Thank you. I would recommend Yves in a heartbeat.

Katlinna, 6 lessons with Yves

Knowledgeable and patient teacher who does a wonderful job developing my understanding of both the content and skills for VBA.

Yves taught me how to understand the importance of design when coding. It is crucial to have explicit understanding of the design process of code before tackling the actual work. I will take this into my future coding classes with Python; however, it is also an applicable lesson to any task at hand. Together, Yves and I completed a business school course: Business Applied Programming project on coding macros in VBA excel!

Alyssa, 4 lessons with Yves
Tutor responded:

Alyssa, it has been a pleasure working with you on this Excel VBA project; I have been impressed by your ability to quickly grasp the concepts; we worked extensively on UserForms and controls. I am very proud of your accomplishment. I wish you lots of success in your continuing college career and beyond. Kind regards Yves

Simply a delight and brilliant as well

Yves is first and foremost courteous, pleasant, and punctual. His knowledge is deep and his ability to transmit it is exceptional. He takes time to really understand the issues, work through them with the student, and does so in an engaging and effective manner. It is truly a joy and a pleasure to learn from him and he seems like the guy you would like to have a drink with as you learn the complexities of the given context. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Yves is wonderful

Yves talked me through regression and predictive analysis. He spent so much time with me discussing why we go through all the steps which was so helpful. If you need help with statistics, I highly recommend Yves. I will go to him next time I need assistance. Thank you, Yves. You relieved me of so much stress.
