"Alex has taught intermediate to advanced Excel applications at the Center for Lifelong Learning of Henry Ford Community College for the past few semesters.  He continues to receive great scores and comments on student evaluations.  Alex puts a great deal of thought into what students want and does his best to deliver.  He uses a hands-on approach to teaching which encourages students to be involved in the exercises  which they can use as models after class is over.  Alex writes most of his own training materials and is able to target specific skills for students.  Alex is always dependable, consistent, friendly, and student-oriented."

"As a tool to improve communication with the co-owners within our Condominium Association, the Board of Directors met with Alex to discuss the potential development of a website.   Following a brief discussion between the board and Alex, he generated a concept for the site.   Alex not only created the concept of the site, but he then went on to create the content.  He used some available content, but also customized and enhanced other portions.   Upon completion of the website, our Condo Association was very pleased with the final product that Alex delivered.  We believe that the finished website effectively achieves our goal of increasing communication with the co-owners.   Based on the final product that we received, I recommend that Alex be considered for your website development project."

"I have taken many classes in my lifetime, but have never encountered such an inspiring and dedicated instructor as Alex. His approach to teaching is very unique and his course materials are detailed and well-organized. I look forward to his other class offerings."

Taleb Salman,  Senior Development Control Engineer, Ford Motor Company


"I have taken several Excel classes at Macomb Community College with Alex as my instructor. He is extremely knowledgeable in Excel. There was always a full classroom, and the students were anywhere from novice to proficient. No matter what the individual's experience level was, Alex was very patient and took the time to make sure that everyone understood topics discussed. Alex even went as far as helping me outside of the classroom with some of the issues I was dealing with at work. If you are looking for hands-on training, I would definitely recommend Alex to be your instructor."

Wendy Brooks, Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable Specialist, National Azon Equipment


"Alex is truly an expert at MS Excel and teaching Excel classes. Not only does he create his own course materials, but he also ensures that each student fully understands all of the concepts covered. I took Alex's classes at two local community colleges and he is considered to be the authority on Excel PivotTables, charts, and functions. Alex leverages his real life industry experience to create class exercises that students are likely to encounter in their prospective careers. He is the best at MS Excel of anyone that I personally know and I would highly recommend him for all of your training needs."

Myron Horodysky, MBA - Cost Estimator/Cost Engineer


"I have been a student in two of Alex's classes and am very pleased with the level of training and education that I received from his workshops. The training was very effective and hands-on, with each step in the process followed through so that every student could perform all of the tasks on their own. Alex takes the time to answer questions during class and provides a written guide and electronic files for reference and review to each student to take home after class is completed. These classes have helped me get a promotion at work and continue to increase my Excel skills in the performance of my job. I would highly recommend any of his workshops or classes to business users looking to get the most out of the software. Do not wait to take this class, it is highly effective in providing the tools you need to excel at Excel!"

"I have attended three Excel workshops led by Alex: Data Analysis with Excel, Mastering Excel Pivot Tables and Taming Excel Charts. I learned a lot about formulas, charts, and pivot tables. Alex was thorough in explaining all of the steps for each lesson (project) on screen and then allowed students to practice the steps on their computer using the project files and handouts that were supplied. Students were encouraged to ask questions at any time. Alex is very knowledgeable about Excel I recommend him as an instructor for all three classes."

Linda A. Orlando, CAP - Macomb Community College


"As a lifelong student of learning, I have taken several classes taught by Alex: Excel Functions and Formulas, Taming Excel Charts, and Mastering Excel PivotTables. Alex has a unique way of taking complicated subject matter and making it understandable. I was hesitant first to take these intermediate and advanced Excel classes, but Alex proved to be a patient instructor, who incorporates fun with learning. I would not hesitate to sign up for any other classes that he is teaching, and I would enthusiastically recommend him to companies and individuals to fulfill any of their instruction needs."

Freida Samarziya, Sterling Heights, MI


"I have taken two Excel classes at the local community college. Alex was the instructor for both classes: Microsoft Excel Pivot Tables and Microsoft Excel Functions & Formulas. I work part-time for a small non-profit. I create spreadsheets using Excel. There are more areas of expertise within Excel that could make the reports I create more beneficial for the executive director and board members, which is one of the reasons I took both classes. Alex is very engaging with the students in the classroom. He is very well organized with the class time. Alex makes sure all students are able to follow along with the class, if not he stops and helps you personally. Alex is extremely knowledgeable in Excel. I look forward to future classes Alex may be teaching."
