Who We Are
Easy Excel Classes.com 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:
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.
