I’m a PhD Scientist/Educator who loves literature and languages. I’ve worked as a Senior Scientist in the biotech industry, but most of my background has been university-level teaching. I’ve taught biology, chemistry, math, geology and astronomy. I have a certificate to teach English as a foreign language with a specialization in online teaching. For the last year and a half I have taught Italian-speaking children English via Zoom.
The reason I teach such a wide variety of subjects has to do with my background: I have a BS in Physics and Mathematics and a PhD in Chemistry (Biological). But I’m not just a science type. I have always been an avid reader, enjoying Shakespeare, Dostoevsky, Hugo as well as religious and philosophical literature. I also love learning languages, and am able to communicate in Italian, French and German at an intermediate level.
I'm an advanced computer user with particular expertise in Excel, Word and PowerPoint both on Windows and Mac. Most people only know a small percentage of what these programs can do. But after using them for over 30 years, I've really learned a lot of tricks. I'm especially familiar with VBA, the programming language used to automate tasks in each of these programs. By sharing the screen online, I can take you step-by-step through the process of solving whatever you're trying to achieve.

Antonio is a super talented guy, and I would highly recommend him. I had a graduate-level VBA class and he helped me with several difficult assignments and my final project. In fact, he helped me complete the final project just as my professor had asked, and he wrote a program that completed the requirements of my final project in a much more direct way with less code. He did this as an instructional benefit to help me see the different ways VBA can be used. Regardless, I was VERY impressed with his proficiency and competence. Antonio is Top Tier!
Tony was prepared with his teaching materials. He was informative and helpful in showing me how to work with Excel. He was easy to follow and easy to understand with step by step instruction, verbal explanation and written summary , sometimes with his own tutorial video. He would share his computer screen and demonstrate these steps until I understand. I’m a person that is a little intimated with working with excel spreadsheets but I feel comfortable with him. I’ve enjoyed our first lesson.
