I am a former CPA with over 20 years experience in accounting and tax as a sole practitioner. My clients were predominately small business owners in the following industries: construction, manufacturing, professional practices (medical, legal, design, and other services), retail, and oil & gas.
In addition to the technical skills, I am able to explain financial statements, tax returns, and the processes involved in creating them to business owners. This means I can help clear up those areas you are having difficulty with.
I have a Master's of Divinity from Southern Methodist University with an emphasis in Historical Theology. In addition, I am working on my dissertation for my PhD from the Graduate Theological Union. A significant portion of my work is grounded in biblical studies and I am a member of the Society of Biblical Literature.
I view reading as not only an essential skill, but also as an entry into new, unimaginable worlds and experiences. I have extensive experience working with students to improve reading comprehension as well speed and enjoyment.

While my area of expertise is Christianity, I have taken coursework and am knowledgeable about all major religions (Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism as well as the increasingly common category of "spiritual, not religious." In addition, I am a member of the American Academy of Religion.
I have written numerous papers for a variety of audiences, ranging from newspaper and popular magazines to specialized technical publications. I have extensive experience tutoring students in writing, particularly working with those whose first language is not English. I tailor my approach based on the student's age, grade level, English fluency, grammar and reading skills, as well as his or her ability to organize the paper.
