I work for a public transit agency preparing reports for management using databases and Excel. I work with Excel and Accounting every day, and I love it. I guess I'm a nerd. I was a tutor at Devry University in Long Beach while I was in school there, and I have continued to tutor students going to many different online schools like Phoenix, Argosy and Brandman.

I can help with most business courses and writing assignments. I can even help with statistics! I cannot help with advanced mathematics like calculus as I never pursued mathematics past algebra, and geometry was years ago in high school.

I can tell you this: I can provide references. I have many students who will vouch for me as being kind and patient, as well as very effective and knowledgeable. I am still friends with many of my past students.

If you need help, give me a call. I usually meet students at a safe, public location (Starbucks), and you will see that I have all good references on this site.

I'm here if you need me,

I love Accounting. I tutored Accounting to undergraduate and graduate students at Devry University, Long Beach. I am very proficient at GAAP and Managerial Accounting. If you have trouble with journal entries, debits, credits, bad debt, depreciation, activity based costing, standard cost, etc., I can help. I also have been a tax preparer for four years, so I can help with tax classes also. I am here to help. Believe it or not, we can have fun while we are studying accounting.


I have obtained a degree in Technical Management. I have written papers and passed classes at the college level in Management, Global Issues in Business, Marketing, Salesmanship, Business and Accounting information systems (Access and Excel), and Project Management (Microsoft Project).

I can help with SWOT analysis, case studies, marketing plans, business plans, and project planning. I have prepared a Project Preview, a Design Report, and Final Report for a senior project.


Writing a paper? Using APA or MLA format? I can help. I can show you how to organize your thoughts. I can help you with outlines, essays, and proofreading. I can talk you through a paper, help you grab attention and have good, logical structure.

I am familiar with basic English grammar and rules. I can help you with spelling and vocabulary. I have written all sorts of papers and reports in Word, and I can help you with the mechanics of word processing...

Microsoft Excel

Excel is my favorite software program. You can easily do things that used to take hours, or days on paper. You can make spreadsheets for almost anything, and make beautiful graphs of your numbers. Calculations and formulas are a snap, and repeating them from row to row or column to column is a great help in many different subjects.

I use Excel extensively when tutoring statistics, and it makes the subject much easier. I love Excel, and I would love to show you what it can do!

I tutored many students in Excel at Devry University as an undergraduate tutor, and I am sure that I can help you.


Statistics is very scary and confusing to many students. I have tutored several students in this area and explained the concepts of Normal Distributions, Descriptive Statistics, Permutations, Combinations, Correlation and Regression, etc. I worked at Devry University in Long Beach as a tutor, and tutoring statistics was the reason that I was hired. I can help you, too. I have several Excel worksheets that can help you, and I will show you that the calculations are easy. Really it is a matter of wrapping your brain around what the math means.

Tax Preparation

I have worked for four years at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service and obtained the position of Office Manager. I have taken college level courses in Individual, Corporation, Estate and Partnership Federal taxation. I also have completed continuing education each year to keep my California Tax Education Council registration current. I currently hold a PTIN from the IRS, and I plan to study for the Enrolled Agent exam.

Tax preparation software is very useful in preparing tax returns, but nothing compares to being able to look at tax forms and recognize whether the forms are filled out correctly. Tax preparation is complicated, and the laws are massive in volume. A tax preparer must rely on software and research to ensure that her/his returns are accurate.


Writing is one of the most difficult things that you must do in school, but writing is also one of the most important things you can learn in school, and in life.

Writing is more than just proper word use and grammar. It is about organizing your thoughts and conveying them clearly to a reader. I have tutored students in writing at the University level. I understand how difficult it can be, and I am very patient and understanding.

I can help with creating a thesis statement, making an outline, writing an introduction, writing supporting body paragraphs, and writing the conclusion. I can also help you with creating citations and references in MLA or APA.

Great Tutor Steven was a big help for me. I learned more in 2 hours with him than I did with over 10 hours of online training. I will continue to work with Steven on Excel and maybe some Power point. He is very patient and a nice guy to work with. ...
