Need help in your Accounting Class or Bookkeeping Class?

I worked as a CPA, both in public and private accounting, for many years. My experience includes managerial accounting, job-costing, consolidations, payroll, setting up books of account, year-end closing and various tax filings. Excel and Word featured as well.

My approach to tutoring is to take you from the place you are and build on that using your requirements for understanding the subject. With my experience and your brain, we can tackle your accounting learning needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Accounting

My general ledger, journal entry and reconciliation experience is supported with years of working with many various companies, compiling consolidated financial statements and doing partnership, corporate and non-profit tax returns.

My experience with managerial/cost accounting is supported with years of working with job-costing analysis.

Algebra 1

I am qualified to tutor Algebra I, due to the numerical qualities of my work. Algebra is very basic to other studies in Math and to the 'real world.' I enjoy Algebra and enjoy tutoring it.

Economics

I find economics interesting, both microeconomics and macroeconomics. Economics makes sense to me and I did well in my college classes. I bring this enthusiasm for economics to students through tutoring.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a valuable resource for K-6 education. I worked for a year at my children's elementary school in the classrooms, library, nurse's office, lunch room and as playground monitor.

Specific volunteer experience for K-6 education includes listening to and reading to second and third graders and asking questions to establish comprehension.

My tutoring methods include flashcards, listening to students read out loud, practicing vocabulary words and other methods depending on a student's needs.

The biggest asset I have is my enthusiasm for getting involved and making learning fun.

Elementary Math

Math can be fun! I have an strong background in math and a desire to help adults and children develop their math skills. Practical examples are everywhere in life and I believe applying math principles to these situations makes math come alive for students.

English

I am highly qualified to assist with English studies. During college, even though I graduated with a degree in Finance & Management, I took more English Department courses, including Rhetoric and Creative Writing classes with the Iowa Writers Workshop.

English is my favorite subject. I enjoy it and hope that enthusiasm affects the students I tutor.

General Computer

I started my career by taking manual systems and converting them to computer systems, mostly in accounting. I have worked with computers for over 30 years, including training other employees in over a dozen programs. I have a very good grasp of basic computer knowledge and skills.

Microsoft Excel

I've used Microsoft Excel in most of my jobs as a requirement. I'm familiar with the basic menus as well as formulas, functions, macros, pivot tables and multi-page spreadsheets.

Microsoft Word

I self taught Word from their tutorials 20 years ago and have been using it daily since. I have picked up tips and more skills over the years from other people, as well as sharing my knowledge with them. I have a strong grasp of Word.

Proofreading

I have been volunteer proofreading since I was in elementary school, during the summers I would help my Mother by proofing her typing (before computers). I have continued to help others with proofreading since then -- in high school and college and then at jobs I have held. I have a knack for catching errors.

Reading

I believe that reading aloud is VERY beneficial to students. I provide that attentive ear for student's practice. Checking comprehension is also important. Another technique that helps with reading is to memorize "sight words."

Study Skills

By tutoring students about the different aspects of studying, such as note taking, they can make study time more effective. Some of the methods I suggest are memorization, organization, study breaks and movement. I encourage a quiet place to study, free from distraction. The student's learning style needs to be considered. My preparation for the CPA exam gave me lots of practice. I am effective at encouraging Study Skills.

We all must start at some point.  We may have been born teachers, but we weren't born teaching.  Our first day teaching or tutoring is sure to stick in our minds.   My very first tutoring session was two weeks ago.  As you can imagine, I was nervous and apprehensive.  (To tell the truth, writing this blog for teachers is nerve-wracking....what if I use poor grammar... read more

The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA (Finance and Mgmt)

Excellent timing and help — I only had a month to complete my course. It was a thirty credit hour college accounting course, and took up most of my time. Thanks to Jody, we were able to cut that time in half. She was able to provide simple answers to my questions. I highly recommend her. She was flexible with my budget, and made herself available to me at any time. And she was pleasant to work with. ...
