The Excel Apprenticeship Series is focused on transforming students into Excel Wizards to give them a distinct competitive advantage over their peers. This installment of the series is about mastering the art and science of problem solving with formulas in Excel.
The course takes a unique approach that is rooted in solving real world problems. This gives students an apprenticeship experience as opposed to a traditional lecture approach. By the end of the course, students will have worked nearly 170 examples and will have learned how to leverage Excel to solve just about any problem they might face in practice.

Hi, I’m Jarrod. I have over a decade of professional experience leveraging Microsoft Excel to solve practical business problems for companies of all sizes and I’m passionate about sharing what I’ve learned over the years with others.
I studied Industrial Engineering at Texas A&M University. After school, I worked as an Industrial Engineer at American Express, spent four years as a project manager at an engineering firm, and then spent three years as a Business Analytics consultant for IBM - where I worked on projects like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, automating financial reporting capabilities for one of the world’s largest investment management companies, and partnering with a leading pharmaceutical company to help evaluate the state of the mental healthcare ecosystem.
I eventually left consulting to get more experience in operations management, which led me to spend two years in a finance management role at a large industrial supply company before I decided to launch my own companies - xLEssentials.com and ReAppDev, Inc.
While I worked in various industries and sectors over the past ten years, my knowledge of Microsoft Excel consistently gave me a competitive advantage over my peers and helped me advance my career.
A few years into my career, several of my coworkers made a comment about how they thought I was an “Excel Wizard”. That tag stuck with me ever since. In each of my roles, I became the go to person for transforming data sets into actionable information and for helping others with questions they had about Excel. I’ve taught countless coworkers and clients how to leverage Excel effectively and efficiently to solve their problems, as well as tips and tricks to save them hours of time. Now, I’d love the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the years with you to give you the same advantage I have!
