Excel Tutoring - New and Experienced alike!
Hi there, my name is Perry! I have spent the past 10+ years on countless message boards, books, documentation sites, and YouTube channels researching and learning the nuances of Excel and VBA. I use Excel in my every day job as a District Business Operations manager for a Fortune 500 company I've been with for 8 years. For the past 5 years, I have taught Excel to teams and small groups of people in both classroom and virtual settings. I also provided those valuable one on one tutoring...
Hi there, my name is Perry! I have spent the past 10+ years on countless message boards, books, documentation sites, and YouTube channels researching and learning the nuances of Excel and VBA. I use Excel in my every day job as a District Business Operations manager for a Fortune 500 company I've been with for 8 years. For the past 5 years, I have taught Excel to teams and small groups of people in both classroom and virtual settings. I also provided those valuable one on one tutoring sessions as well.
I come from a background where understanding, manipulating and visualizing data to help make timely and sound business decisions is paramount. I have mastery of Index Match, Vlookup, Pivot tables, power query, goal seek, solver, charts and countless other out of the box Excel tools. Eventually situations arise where the out of the box functionalities of Excel are limiting and something more customized is required, and for that there is VBA. I also have spent the past 7 years tapping into the power of VBA for very customized and robust automations and tools. I've earned a degree in software and web development, but I still find VBA a fun and relevant programing language that can get so much accomplished!
A typical lesson with me would consist of a brief outline of a concept paired with two or three examples of real life applications. I often quickly ask some questions about your own field of work/study and incorporate relevant hypothetical applications. I would then, step by step, demonstrate the concept in Excel, helping you master the new tool to be added to your tool belt. I find that working with a data set or problem that is real to the student is the best way to solidify abstract concepts, so I do welcome customized data sets to work through as well.
Students have lasting results with my methods of teaching. I am non-judgmental, practical, down to earth and I like to have fun with learning. I start by doing an assessment of skills, find out your goals and develop a training just fit for what you need
Excellent 1st session!
We worked together very well and Perry knows his stuff!! Very much looking forward to our next sessions. This is going to help me so much in my career! (Why is Wyzant requiring 160 characters for the review?)Kris, 3 lessons with Perry
Goes the extra mile
Perry helped me solve a tough excel formula problem. I spent some time with him and gave up on it, deciding to end the lesson. He however, was not so inclined on calling it quits and worked on the problem for some time, before sending me a workable solution as a message. I literally could not have asked for more from a tutor, he was fantastic.Arjun, 1 lesson with Perry

Perry is such a great Macro, VBA, and advanced Excel Tutor. Thanks Google for helping me find Perry on Wyzant! After just 2 day of learning Macro from Perry, I was able to Write my own Macro Codes for format my reports. That helped me a lot in my work as I want to automate my work in my company. Thanks Perry for making my work at the company much easier! Now, I can use my time to work on other project. That means a lot!Quan, 2 lessons with Perry

Very knowledgeable, patient tutor
Perry is absolutely fantastic tutor. I needed help on a specific project. Not only Perry helped me to complete the project but also wanted to ensure i am equipped with appropriate knowledge to enable my independent work in the future. Perry has bags of experience within various industries and is also able to suggest further application of knowledge acquired during tutoring. Highly recommend.Anna, 3 lessons with Perry
