My tutoring philosophy is there is an "A" in every student!

I believe that one learns by doing. Number Crunching some examples is the best way to improve one's understanding of accounting methods. I'm a visual tutor - l like to make use of the whiteboards, Excel, and scrap paper. I like to develop a list of steps for solving the accounting question. My approach is to ask the leading questions to guide the student to the solutions they're seeking.

I tutor with enthusiasm, listening and patience... I have a flexible schedule.

I specialize in Accounting and related subjects. I specialize in: Accounting Information Systems, Cost Accounting, Fundamentals of Accounting, Income Tax I, Intermediate Accounting (I & II) • MS Office (Access, Excel, Outlook, & PowerPoint) - all versions, Principles of Accounting (I & II), & QuickBooks.

I'm an accounting graduate of MSU Denver and hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. I tutored at the Community College of Denver (CCD) and currently work as a Staff Accountant for a CPA firm. I'm a CPA candidate and Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) with 8 years tax prep experience.

I've tutored accounting students from MSU Denver, CSU Global, DU, UCD, and other colleges and universities. I also assist business owners and managers. I have a passion for computers, number crunching, small business, and being organized and prepared.
