If you are uncomfortable, it is important to know that I was voted the best teacher in terms of ability to make subjects easily understood and remembered.

There are many areas in which I might be able to help you. I have been teaching graduate level courses for 15 years including Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, and Strategic Planning, Audit, Marketing, Taxes and many others. My Business Accounting experience comes from running my own businesses for 20 years and I have created the accounting systems for a listed company; I have taken a company public. This prepared me to help you with Accounting, Finance, and Business Tax Preparation

Additionally,I owned an English ESL School in France, so I can help with Writing, Grammar,and Public Speaking. For 10 years I have helped students with Career Development. I held a Series 7 license for 10 years which helps prepare you for the exam.

Student love me, some of their comments are quoted below. I have nine pages of student references, here are just a few:

Mr. W was a great instructor. He always provided real life examples for the Finance concepts. I would take another class with him as the instructor. Very informative! He knows his stuff!

Mr. W is very knowledgeable on the subject of accounting as has many years of real world experience. He does well at engaging students in class discussion. I look forward to Accounting II.

This guy is thorough and extremely knowledgeable of the subject. I really have enjoyed learning accounting from Professor W.

Prof W is one of the finest Profs. I have ever had the pleasure of being in class with and THE BEST Prof by a long shot. His knowledge and ability to put complex financial jargon into language that is understandable is unmatched. I have learned more from him in 6 weeks than I have in all my undergrad work concerning financial matters.

This instructor was very helpful. He was nice and approachable and answered any questions you needed at any time. He was very persistent on making sure the class understood the topic and really wanted us to learn what he was teaching. He made such a hard course easy to learn which isn't easy to do.

Mr. W is a true professional in his professional and a subject matter expert for the type of class he is teaching. Very good with explaining when we had questions, and he really has helped me better understand investing, retirement plans and taxes.

Phil was a great instructor was a wealth of knowledge. I found myself talking to my wife about current events such as the Hostess bankruptcy, corporate bonds and even precious metals.

I am glad to take this class with this instructor because of his professionalism and knowledge in this field. While the lectures were long, he was able to capture everybody's attention at all times and add his personal experiences to the topics to make it enjoyable as well. Thank you.

Although this area is something I really was not interested, I learned so much in corp. finance. The instructor went through various examples and he made sure that everyone understood what they were doing.

Prof. Winner Phil is a very nice instructor with full of knowledge. I liked the way of his teaching. He gives all real life examples and makes you understand the simplest way. He is co-operative and extremely knowledgeable am proud to be his student and I will always remember him as my favorite professor.

Mr. Winner was by far one of the best instructors I've had thus far. You really can feel his passion and knowledge of the subject material. He is exactly what I envisioned when I first saw the commercial. Very helpful and caring to all his students. A++

Mr. Winner does a good job of making a subject that could be dry and boring interesting. He has many real world experiences that he brings to the classroom.

Prof Winner is one of the finest Profs. I have ever had the pleasure of being in class with and THE BEST Prof by a long shot. His knowledge and ability to put complex financial jargon into language that is understandable is unmatched. I have learned more from him in 6 weeks than I have in all my undergrad work concerning financial matters.

Professor Winner uses a common sense approach in his lectures. In my opinion, this prepared me for the final more than reading the course material. I was able to score 90% on my final exam, I would have been able to do that well if I didn't have the benefit of his lectures. Furthermore, he really seems to care if you are absorbing the information. He holds students accountable for learning the information by constantly asking questions to see if you understand the material. In my opinion, this is one of the most effective teaching methods.

Great instructor. I liked how he taught real world scenarios. Helps absorb the information a lot easier.

He also did an outstanding job "Teaching" the material, as he would put the information into a practical and realistic application. Mr. Winner also took the time to ensure that the information given was clearly understood by each class member.

Mr. Winner made the class fun but still ensured that you understood the information.

I appreciate the depth in knowledge Mr. Winner brought to the classroom. His personal experiences and true stories of accounting were enlightening. He didn't just allow students to interrupt for long periods of time with false assumptions, but stopping the run-on conversations to make a valid point.

Excellent Instructor, Mr. Winner took the time to cover all the material fully and completely. Most fellow students that I talked too regarding this course felt that this was one of the best classes so far. I am currently employed in the financial services industry, I felt it was nice to hear from an instructor with so much experience in the field, give an objective view of the industry. I would highly recommend this course.
