I have 30 years of experience in accounting in both public accounting firms and private business gives me a perspective that includes working through the realities of accounting, not just the philosophies of accounting education.

As a QuickBooks Pro-Advisor I have taught QuickBooks to clients since 1995. I have taught classes in local adult education classes in QuickBooks at four different levels, as well as all the Microsoft Office Suite products. I have developed my own syllabi from defined expected outcomes.

Currently a Doctor of Business Administration candidate with emphasis on strategy and innovation I bring a rich background and working knowledge to the areas of accounting, computer software and business consulting with a reference library from Capella to research any number of problems. Educating others is a core purpose of mine and no question is "stupid!"

Sincerely,

Karen

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Accounting

Accounting from start-up to shut down doesn't need to be difficult. In incremental bites I can make sense of it for you! Accounting can be taught without the pain - just ask!

Business

Business strategy and market development. As a management and accounting professional, I have a broad skill set which includes financial statement analysis and preparation with the principles of GAAP (GASB and FASB); preparing business and individual federal income tax returns; and in-depth knowledge of current business accounting procedures and reporting requirements. As part of the management team as the financial coordinator of an award winning ARRA project, I developed and maintained the federal program compliance program.


Business consulting – strategy development for business – market identification, business model development, external environment contextual analysis, business plans, set procedures, and develop internal control processes and policies. Identify business capital requirements, financing & fund raising. Perform rolling forecasts, budget variance analyses, cash management, and treasury functions. Financial statement analysis and preparation with the principles of U.S. and international generally accepted accounting principles.

General Computer

Do you just want to know how to turn it on and use the e-mail? I can help from the simple "how to" on several different versions of Windows Operating systems (98 to Windows 7) and all of the Microsoft Suite applications. Just want to know how to download pictures? Or how to use Gmail? How to setup and use a new wireless printer? I can do that in small easy steps!

Microsoft Excel

Confused about formulas, sheets and cells? I can help - make Excel do the work for you.

QuickBooks

ProAdvisor with Intuit since 2003 - QuickBooks Accounting Software - for business, construction, non-profits, and fund accounting. If you want to know how to do it right - I have experience with QuickBooks since 1995. Have taught 4 different levels of classes through customizing reports, invoices & other documents.
