Emily made herself available on short notice and delivered two engaging and well structured trainings for our staff of varying skill levels. Between the training and the post training resources she provided, our staff is better equipped than ever before to manage funds, analyze data, and problem solve for a variety of other projects. I could not recommend her services more highly.
These sessions gave a glimpse of Excel tools and options. I know I have SO much more to learn, but I now feel like I have a place to start my journey. I like the strategy of focusing on one or two job-embedded skills per session. It's a great way to introduce Excel capabilities without overwhelming neophyte users like me. Love the links to additional resources! Thanks for being a patient, resourceful Sherpa guide!
I told Emily that my deepest, darkest Excel secret was that I couldn't do pivot tables. But after a fun (really!) virtual training, I can better manipulate and therefore understand our data. (Bonus: I also learned some tricks to make me more efficient.) I'm signing up more members of our team for Excel training ASAP. I highly recommend it!

I can’t say enough good things about Emily or the one-on-one Excel training sessions that she teaches...Simply put, Emily rocks. I really connected with her teaching philosophy and approach to our sessions together. Emily was always super prepared, created a relaxed (and fun) but structured learning environment, and did a wonderful job of making me feel more confident in my ability to work within the world of Excel...I would strongly recommend Emily to anyone who wants to get more out of Excel (whether you’re a beginner or more advanced user)! She is a great teacher, super knowledgeable about Excel, and has set up a wonderful teaching/learning methodology with Make Excel Work For You.

I am someone who knew nothing about Excel or the ways that it could improve efficiency on my team and save me hours of trying to do math in my head and figure out what might look sort of nice, but Emily changed that for me completely. She is the nicest person to work with and speaks clearly and in non-tech speak for those of us who don’t speak that language. She made Excel FUN and interesting, and now I have a thirst to learn more! Would highly recommend her to newbies and advanced users alike as she is a joy to work with and can help take your project or understanding to the next level. The best!

Emily’s personalized and hands on Excel training was incredible. I completed three 1-1 training sessions with her, and felt more confident and capable using Excel than ever! Before we began she took time to understand my current level of comfortability in Excel and what types of analysis I wanted to be able to do. She then crafted learning goals for our three sessions that aligned with my work and experience. With Emily I was able to practice using my own data sets, and complete analysis relevant to my own work. She provided real-time feedback and guidance, coaching me through questioning sequences and allowing me to talk through my thinking to better understand mistakes. Emily’s warm personality made it easy to ask questions, or to go back and practice a particular skill again. I would highly recommend Emily’s coaching sessions to anyone wanting to improve their skills in Excel!
