I've spent years working in the business world. I've worked for Big 4 CPA firm and some of the top companies in the world. I've owned my own businesses too. I've honed my skills in business, particularly in accounting and finance. I am good at writing well and proofreading so I try to teach these skills to others. Writing well, in whatever career field you enjoy, will take you far! I have two advanced degrees, an MBA and an MS in Taxation. All of this schooling has taught me to write and to research well. Oh, did I mention, I am also a community college professor and I teach accounting?

So, why do I want to tutor? My staff always told me I am very good at training and teaching and I should teach others. They told me I was patient with them no matter how many times it took for them to understand something. I enjoy working with others and, whether it be in accounting or teaching someone how to use Excel to build highly complex models, I enjoy seeing the "lightbulb" go on when someone really gets what I am teaching them.
