Accounting

Focusing primarily on Introduction To Financial Accounting and Bookkeeping.

Students can find help and be assisted on the fundamental accounting concepts, as laid out by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and such topics as the accounting equation, the double entry system, debits and credits, the matching principle concept, inventory valuation along with various depreciation methods.

Of interest are also assets, liabilities and equity accounts (including contra-asset accounts), T-accounts, prepaid expenses, bank reconciliation, petty cash, posting transactions, adjusting entries, financial statements, closing entries, post-closing trial balance, ratio analysis, etc. An important accountant's worksheet is often used in accounting to simplify the preparation of financial statements.

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel is a wonderful and certainly very popular tool in today's job market.

Students can find help and be assisted on the fundamental concepts of setting up spreadsheets, cutting and pasting, relative and absolute cell referencing, formulas, vertical and horizontal table lookups, macros, IF statements and much more.

Soccer

I have been playing soccer for as long as I can remember. I have played Semi Professional when I was just out of college. It is a great sport and an excellent way to stay fit.

Tax Preparation

For over 20 years I have been working in the Accounting and Tax industry. Today I continue to prepare personal and business tax returns using professional software such as Proseries. Tax preparation includes 1040, 1040X amended, 1120 Corporate, Schedule C for small businesses and a number of other forms and schedules. I obtained my Tax Consultant Certificate from National Tax Training School back in February 1985.
