Working with Spreadsheets in Excel and Google Sheets


Neil's class is offered to anyone who wants to excel in Excel!  If you want to learn the basics of spreadsheets and how they might be useful to you or you are a power-Excel user with questions, Neil is your man!

What you need to participate in this session

  1. Answer the question below, 'what do you hope to get out of this session' to have Neil best prepared to answer you.

  2. Have Excel or Google spreadsheets open on your computer.


Neil has used Excel for many years and is an expert in both Excel and Excel VBA.  VBA is the programming language embedded in Excel. Neil has written Excel spreadsheets that have been used to manage the risk of multi-billion dollar fixed income derivative portfolios.  Neil has also written spreadsheets to manage his personal finances, his stocks and bonds portfolios, for vacation planning, and in general, to keep track of a whole lot of things.


Neil is currently a high school computer science teacher.  This is his fourth year of teaching. Prior to teaching, Neil had a long and storied career in financial software, working at some of the leading hedge funds and Wall Street firms.

Separately, Neil is also a great believer in Google sheets.  Though it lacks a lot of the functionality of Excel, it is free, and works seamlessly across all devices including his computers and his phone.  Neil keeps his To Do List spreadsheet in Google Sheets and backs up all of his Excel spreadsheets onto Google Drive.


Neil has lived in Israel, London and Chicago but now resides in Westchester, New York with his wife and 3 children.
