Learning is easier if you are given the right tools and instruction. In every one of my courses I take you step-by-step through the tools and knowledge you need to accomplish your goals.

My talent is taking complex subjects (like Excel) and making them simple to learn. I wasn't always good at technology. There was a time when I didn't even know how to correctly turn a computer on and off. But over the past 20 years I've dedicated countless hours to learning about technology. Now I'm proud to call myself a self-taught technology geek. 

The benefit to you is that I'm a geek who still speaks the language of normal human beings. I will never use a word that you aren't familiar with, without showing you what it means and how to use it to your benefit.

I understand how frustrating it can be when the instructor goes too fast or leaves out critical steps in the learning process. That's why I make sure to clearly demonstrate each step for you visually, so you can follow along starting from the very beginning and going along until you've reached mastery.

I am here to guide you on your way to success. You can contact me at any step of the way for assistance. Let me know when you're struggling with a concept and I'll get right back to you to keep you moving in the right direction.

I'm always happy to help.

I believe in you, and I'm here to support you in your learning process.

Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? It all starts with knowledge, and my courses make that part easy.

Sign up for a course today and I'll help you reach the level of success you deserve. 

I'll see you in there!
