You feel like you’ve been left behind when it comes to digital skills. Your colleagues are more digitally advanced than you’d like to admit and you feel embarrassed that you don’t understand Excel as well as they do. You find yourself dreading an urgent data request from your boss as you know it’ll take you ages to do it…

You’re starting to think now would be a good time to change your career, but you don’t feel you have the relevant IT skills for a computer/office-based job. You constantly write your to-do lists on bits of paper that get lost on your desk and struggle to keep on top of tasks…

You find yourself spending hours on an Excel task, surely there’s an easier/quicker way… but you don’t know “what you don’t know”. You find yourself sending spreadsheets to your colleagues to add filters for you. 

You find yourself spending hours each month doing your accounts/expenses manually on paper. You’re struggling to keep on top of your finances each month and often find yourself late or missing payments…

You use Excel for a client/customer database but it takes you ages to filter the keywords/data you need for marketing and communications. You struggle to take in information and need someone to explain things in an easy way and at your pace…

The words VLOOKUP and Pivot Table have you cringing in fear…


You’re not alone and help is at hand…


There are many people, young and old, who feel like their Excel/Office skills are not up to scratch, they feel like they’re too old to learn something new or they feel they’re too old to change their career…

You’re never too old, or too young, to learn something that is going to allow you to live the life you want and give you valuable life skills. And you can learn it from home too.


See how my Excel training can help you…



I have set up successful Excel training packages since January 2020 and had many people do the training that have no Excel experience at all and want to learn how to manage their accounts/business tasks more efficiently, or often they are people wanting to learn more about Excel so they can think about a career change. Take a look at what they have to say…

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do or what level of experience you do or don’t have… There’s literally something for everyone.

A lot of people feel silly about their lack of experience/knowledge of Excel and this puts them off going back to college or signing up for evening classes. You can do my training packages at times that suit you as it’s all downloaded through my payment platform.

Most of my training packages have a video you can watch, so you see how I do the task. You get a copy of the spreadsheet that I use so you can follow along at your pace. So you will be watching what I do and then having a go yourself to make sure you understand how it works.

Learn the Excel basics, VLOOKUPS, Conditional Formatting, Pivot Tables and more.

I also have trackers and templates that I’ve pre-made that you can purchase and download for your own use, so if you have an idea of what you want to use a spreadsheet for, take a look at the ready-made templates – you’ll find things like budget trackers, task lists, invoice templates, capacity trackers and more…

Tracy’s beginners’ course was brilliant!  This course was informative and very useful for someone who knows nothing about Excel. Tracy explained things beautifully and was infinitely patient. Basically, it is a live and interactive ‘Excel for dummies’ course! Things I had spent hours trying to do in the past she showed us how to do with one click! Highly recommend This course if Excel is a mystery to you – it won’t be by the end!! Thanks Tracy!!

I joined a webinar in January 2020 for Excel for beginners. I found this introduction to Excel very useful and very convenient for me as I didn’t need to leave my home. Tracy is amazing at explaining things and encourages you to ask questions. I do use Excel on a daily basis but I still learned things from Tracy and I will be highly recommending this webinar

Tracy is very knowledgeable when it comes to Excel. She was patient and clear in her instructions when showing me how I could create a targeted marketing list, making my campaigns easier and more effective. The key for me, was I thought I knew how to use Excel, however as the saying goes, you don’t know what you don’t know. Tracy opened my eyes to the varied tools and options within Excel, thankyou! I look forward to the next lesson, Carole

I have wanted to use Pivot tables for some time, but have always struggled to understand how to use the data. Tracy went through the information clearly, went over any items I wanted to review and made it relevant. I feel that I will now use Pivot Tables in my everyday work, and it will help to save a lot of time. I would recommend the class to work colleagues.

Tracy has been my Excel angel. I’m a freelance trainer and I don’t have the time to learn all the tricks of every trade so I have outsourced my Excel headaches to her. We have had sessions where she has directly showed me how to use her well built and so simple templates. At times I also directly send her spreadsheets with issues to fix. She is very responsive and explains in a very clear and structured way. I feel so relieved knowing she is always there to help me and the amount of time I save is noticeable. I can focus on my core work and not waste time getting frustrated in trying to learn how to use formulas. Thanks Tracy!


Freelance Trainer

Before your training, I wasn’t really aware of Pivot Tables, how to use them and their usefulness. Your training was so invaluable for me.

The training really helped me to refine my existing Excel skills, along with providing so much more useful information on Pivot Tables and their uses. The session was paced really well and I found it easy to keep up and really understand the topic.

Everything was explained in detail and you were so understanding and supportive of all of my questions, really helping to make sure that I was clear on all aspects of the training.

Since the training, I have implemented Pivot Tables in my day-to-day work and have found that the training has helped me complete my role to a better standard, really helping me to excel and have a clear understanding of data and the possibilities available to analyse and understand what data is telling me.
