After twenty years in the business world working as an operational analyst, I have left my cubicle behind and have pursued education. I really have made a great move for myself as I love tutoring and teaching; I get to work from my home and I get to do what I really enjoy doing. Working in Analytics, I worked heavily with data and databases. I think I have spent most of my working career in MS Excel and have done innumerable things with it. In my work, I was always searching for answers, and SQL is the key computer language to know when looking for data. SQL is deceptively simple and yet so powerful, and I really enjoy using it. In addition to SQL and Excel knowledge I can also offer you my ESL and Spanish skills.

In my experience as a senior analyst, a key component of the role is to mentor junior analysts. The first step in training a junior analyst is to make a proper assessment of their current knowledge level. Once their prior knowledge is assessed, the knowledge gaps can then be addressed.

My philosophy is that I am more of a guide than a teacher. I think the most effective learning is learning where the student is discovering their own answers and for the most part they just need a guide to point them in the right direct direction when they “go astray.”

I have been teaching ESL in a classroom for two years and have now been working online for the past seven months and have reached the stage where I am completely comfortable with the online teaching dynamic.

SQL
I have ten plus years hands-on work experience with SQL. I have worked for most of my professional career as an analyst and SQL was the most powerful skill in my toolbox. I can create complex multi-table queries, functions, subqueries, stored procedures and database connections.
EXCEL

I have been using MS Excel for over 20 years. I have mastered complex formulas and functions (new ones too like XLOOKUP), data visualization, Macros, data connections and much more!

I really enjoy teaching and tutoring and hope you will reach out to me so I c

Awesome Tutor

Cal was an incredible tutor: helping me learn the basics of SQL up to more advanced query-related topics. He was patient, thorough, and an overall great teacher. I highly recommend Cal to anyone needing help with SQL.

Cal is a wonderful tutor, i have had more than 10 classes and still counting with him. His is very helpful when it comes to making you understand the topic, you can ask he questions as he teaches. He is a very honest person and very approachable. He is professional. I recommend he to anyone who is looking for an excellent tutor. He teaches me SQL and Excel.

Ashley, 16 lessons with Cal

Knowledgeable tutor, patient and laidback!

I found my SQL class really challenging and was considering dropping it. Cal helped me see that it was doable. He was patient and available when I had questions. He provided very helpful feedback as well as useful tips.

Pia, 15 lessons with Cal

Full of knowledge.

Cal is great at explaining by using his work experience to relate to the examples. His availability schedule is better than tutor I have met with on Wyzant. I strongly recommend Cal for tutoring in SQL.

Duong, 3 lessons with Cal

Very adaptable to looking at different ways to teach Excel based on students knowledge

New presentation formats for Excel - financial interpretation models for formulas and ways to approach homework problems. He also presented new views in Excel with headers and cost reporting

Project Management Design

Cal and I discussed how I might approach project management by aggregating data. Really appreciated his suggestions! The use of spreadsheets and pivot tables will organize data in a way that facilitates analysis. Thank you.

Heidiann, 1 lesson with Cal

Cal helped me do something that will save us hours of time every week

Cal is patient and fast at the same time. When I understood something, he got that and moved right along without belaboring it, but when I needed to review something he was patient. Great tutor!

Jorge, 6 lessons with Cal

Knowledgeable tutor

Cal taught Vlookup on various spreadsheets as well a pivot table for a long excel essay. He taught me shortcuts in excel, cut and paste among columns and pages.

Bette, 5 lessons with Cal

Very patient and understanding

Very impressed with Cal's patience with me in getting through this project, considering I had not done some of the work prior. He was respectful of me and my time, so we could have an efficient and effective session and met again a 2nd time. He was helpful and what I liked, is I did the work and learned along the way (the way it should be). Felt very comfortable with his level of expertise and teaching ability. Thank you.!
