Ms. J. is terrific! I went to her to learn Excel. This wasn't my first run at it, but this is the first time I was able to follow what we were doing. I'm technophobic and innumerate, and too often people attempting to teach me either move too fast or lose patience. Not so, Ms. J., a professional teacher who showed me why she's been in demand by some of the country's leading secondary schools. I'm a lawyer with degrees from four different universities, including Harvard, and I've encountered no better teaching.
Ms. J. quickly adjusted to my pace, answered my questions without wincing, and we made enough progress in one session to make me eager for more. She's also pleasant company. After I knock off Excel, under her tutelage, I may even ask her to teach me physics, a subject I avoided like a social disease, all through school. Who knows--I may yet get a Nobel.

"Physics Made Phun!"
Through my role as science researcher (astrophysics) and high school physics teacher, I have become very adept at Microsoft Office programs. In particular, Excel is an area of particular strength. Whether it is graphing in excel, using formulas, or conditional formatting knowing how to set up effective spreadsheets can be key in so many areas of business and academics.
I have over 20 years of teaching experience behind me and would be happy to make you an Excel "God" or "Goddess." ... More

"Patient and knowledgeable Tutor for Pre-School to Middle with Special"
I have worked as a substitute teacher for the last twelve years and have seen many methods in the classroom; some good, others not-so-good. I have worked one-to-one and with groups of students as they progress through their learning experiences. I'd like to think that I can develop a good rapport with almost any student, and the fact that a tutor becomes involved means that the student and parents are taking a strong, positive approach to learning. I just finished an Ortongillingham Course... ... More
