I enjoy teaching accounting skills. Accounting is the language of business. All business students must learn this language. However, it appears most colleges and universities are trying to teach accounting online, or with some class time, but there is very little face-to-face, interactive education being provided. That just doesn't work for most students and the results are dismal.

I am a CPA with more than 25 years experience as a chief accountant in small- to medium-sized businesses. I was still an accounting student at ASU when I accepted my first full-charge accounting role in a Phoenix-based construction company. I held that job for 6 years until the company was sold. I use Excel spreadsheets extensively in my work and teach my students to use them as well. I use QuickBooks accounting software daily and have been certified as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor.

I am a graduate of Arizona State University (School of Accountancy) in 1986.

I am a CPA, licensed in Arizona since 1991.

I have over 25 years of experience as an accounting manager or controller for many small businesses - mostly construction companies.

My teaching experience includes one and one-half years teaching software application skills for Versyss, Inc. This was a customer-service/product-specialist position in which I taught new users of Versyss software products how to perform all accounting functions using Versyss software applications. This included classroom and on-site instruction.

I am bilingual: English and Spanish. I lived in Colombia (South America) for 2 years as a teacher of religion. This teaching was done entirely in Spanish.

My style is patient, yet persistent - making sure basic principles are learned and reinforced by using real-life examples and constant review. I ask questions designed to help students become comfortable with what they already know; then we build on top of that base.

Christopher’s subjects


I am a CPA who enjoys teaching my skills to students of accounting in the evenings and on weekends.


I am a certified public accountant with over 25 years of business experience. I have a business/accounting degree from Arizona State University. I have successfully tutored many students through WyzAnt in the areas of accounting, QuickBooks, and Excel. It makes sense that I should also tutor business classes.

General Computer

The computer is an important business tool. In my career as a CPA, I use the computer daily to run accounting software like Quickbooks, to create Excel spreadsheets, and to do research on the internet. These are the skills I am most prepared to teach.

Microsoft Excel

I am a CPA and have used Excel heavily throughout my 25-year career.


I am a CPA and a daily user of Quickbooks.


I studied Spanish in school and then spent 2 years in Colombia, South America, speaking Spanish daily as a teacher of religion.
