Who We Are

Easy Excel is the only outfit in the New York City area that focuses solely on Microsoft Excel training. We consistently deliver high-energy Excel Training seminars to thousands of students each year, across several industries. If you're still putting off learning VLOOKUP or still relying on the office "whiz", it's time to have us visit the office. Our curriculum is designed and taught by a finance industry Excel expert with real-world experience- providing only the most practical and useful examples. And yes, Excel doesn't have to suck. We make it fun.

Our Corporate Excel Training Program is one the most competitively-priced Excel training solutions in New York City. We'll cover the stuff you need (basics, spreadsheet design principles, charts, pivot tables, and macros) but also consider the individual needs and applications of your company. A great way to help employees learn Excel is to use their own spreadsheets in the examples. Often during class we fix errors and add functionality to these sheets and they end up using them at work! During "office hours", employees can get 1-1 assistance at their desks about specific problems they're having in Excel.  

Which Class To Do?

Most people never receive proper Excel training in college or at the workplace. As a result, most are using the program at a shockingly low level, spending years behind the desk frustrated while trying to do the simplest tasks. Even most Excel "veterans" create spreadsheet DISASTERS that tend to ignore the life-or-death principles of proper spreadsheet design! For this reason we recommend the 1/2 Day Introductory Excel Class to 99% of our first-time students. Nonetheless, all of the following courses can be delivered at your office:

  • The 1/2 Day Introductory Excel Class is the fastest and most cost-efficient way to become comfortable with the functionality of Excel without spending money on several classes or "levels". It starts with an introduction to core concepts (cells, formatting, and formulas), introduces some time-saving shortcuts, and delves into some real-word applications, IF functions, VLOOKUPS, and the infamous "Pivot Table". Most importantly, we cover the often-ignored principles of proper spreadsheet design. What's the good of a spreadsheet that cracks after a week? This class is perfect for practically all Excel users, including (but not limited to) those in finance, accounting, and consulting, media, advertising, and fashion.
  • The "Advanced Class" builds on the design principles taught in the intro class, to help you create even stronger human-proof spreadsheets. We'll explore some of the more advanced functions in Excel (INDEX, MATCH, OFFSET, array formulas, and more), build some high-quality dashboards, and create some simple macros. We'll even add some of those cool buttons to your dashboards! If you understand the fundamentals above and you're ready to take Excel to the next level, this is it.

  • The VBA Macros Class. Sometimes a task is so big in Excel that formulas just can't cut it. If you're ready to witness the pure Excel magic and you're willing to write some code, this class is for you. Call for details.

Meet Your Instructor

Michael is your instructor. Although Michael spent several years working and consulting in finance, he isn’t what you’d expect from a teacher of Excel. And that’s precisely why his class has been such a smashing success. He designed the Easy Excel experience with a few things in mind:

1. Very few people really know how to use Excel properly. Even fewer programmers working in finance use it to its full potential.

2. Most of them aren’t any good at explaining it!

Michael is one of these nerds who learned how to make Excel cool… and understands how people really learn. The key is making people feel comfortable and using a down-to-earth teaching style. Once people lose their fear of Excel amazing things happen. His classes are proof of this. Furthermore, his classes reveal techniques used by these elite individuals –not the generic lesson plans you’ll find in most standard course books. His students range from financial analysts learning to write macros to folks re-entering the workforce who need “proficient in Excel” on their resume. Look no further than the video above to get a better idea of the connection Michael creates with his students.

Michael learned his trade while working at an energy hedge fund in Manhattan (founded by former NYMEX president Robert Collins) where he managed Excel-based option pricing models for natural gas options traders. These were spreadsheets that had to function like Indy cars in a daily high-stakes race. He then refined his skills at JP Morgan where he built several dynamic VBA-driven databases for the Corporate Access division. Michael has taught basic and advanced Excel modeling techniques to over 10,000 students and employees of several major banks and companies including JP Morgan, TD Securities, the United Nations, and the US federal government.

In addition to teaching and consulting, Michael enjoys playing the great piano concertos from the classical and romantic eras. He received his BA from New York University.
