  1. Hi Habib. Thank you for the detail lesson! Your pace of teaching is just right for me, not too fast not too slow. Easy for me to catch up and understanding.

    • You’re welcome Janet. All my lessons will be at this pace. The pace is very important, which I’m well aware of, as I’m a qualified ICT tutor. Carry on learning, I have many more lessons already up on our site and YouTube channel 🙂

  2. Hi Habib,
    I’m glad I found your videos. My daughter needs to learn Excel for her math class this fall, and you explain everything in a way that is easy for her to understand and follow along. It’s prevented a lot of stress in our relationship. 😉


    • That’s great to hear Jordan – it makes me happy to hear I’m helping all age groups and reducing stress between relationships 🙂

  3. Hi there,

    thanks for this video. Finally somebody who is focusing on videos on their blog 🙂 It is always easier to follow someone talking instead of reading.

    Thanks for the content.


    • Yes Fabian, tutorials should always be in a video format as we humans are very visual beings and we need to see it in a step by step form in front of us to learn something new in the best method. I am an ICT tutor, hence I am very well aware of this 🙂

  4. Hi Habib,

    I love going through your lessons on excel. I feel as if I am improving with my excel skills every day due to your lessons. I am pretty sure many people from all over the world are coming across your articles, videos and lessons and learning just as much.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the amazing work.

    All the best,


    • Thank you Tom – yes people all over the globe are accessing my website and YouTube channel for all my Excel video lessons. But I will be doing lessons on Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Access, Publisher and many more other software. This is only the beginning 🙂

  5. Hi Habib,

    Excellent video. Your explanation about the division formula in Excel in this video is very clear. I do believe it’s very useful for those who are not familiar with Excel. You know, Excel is a very convenient software for calculation. People could be helped in their daily work if they have more knowledge about using Excel. Keep it up, Habib. Your videos are always valuable.

    All the best,


    • Thank you for your lovely feedback Alex – I totally agree with you. Excel is a very valuable software and it’s not difficult to use as I have explained in my video lessons.

  6. Hello Habib,
    I love your videos. You are explaining so clearly and it’s easy to follow. Thank you for that and for helping people learn. My nephew hated Excel before. Now he learns it only thanks to your videos 🙂
    Bless you

    • AWH – that’s such an achievement for myself firstly to hear your nephew is able to learn via my lessons. Secondly he can learn many aspects of not only excel, but word, powerpoint, publisher, access and other software, which I will be publishing on my website and YouTube channel soon 🙂

  7. Your videos are life savers Habib, I just love how simply you break everything down for idiots new to using excel like me.
    This one on how to do devision was great.
    I’ll soon be an expert in excel!

    Keep doing what you do!

    • You’re very welcome Amy. I will always break and explain everything thoroughly so everyone understands it straightaway. Watch all the lessons starting from lesson 1 🙂

  8. Thank you for this post, Habib. Excel formulas always confused me. I just couldn’t understand them. Thank you for explaining it so clearly. Now I understand it.

  9. Nice, this is very informative and surprisingly interesting to me. Usually I avoid math like the plague, but this is very clear and looks easy. I haven’t had much experience with excel, so this is very helpful. Thanks!

    • Thank you Ryzehn. You don’t need to be good at maths to be able to use excel, as excel does all the calculations for you, such as this division formula. Keep on watching all my lessons and you will start to develop love for maths too 🙂

      Habib (ICT Tutor)

  10. Hi Habib,

    Again and again, I’m amazed at how clear your excel videos are. You explain it clearly and to the point. This makes a division formula look like peanuts, even for people without any experience with the Excel program.

    Thanks for sharing these videos.


    • Thank you very much Catherine – you have motivated me even more to carry on creating more video lessons like these, so everyone can benefit for FREE. I have big plans, so watch this space 🙂
