Hello, my name is Randy R. and I am a CPA. I live in Portage Park and also own a condo in the 6000 block of N Sheridan Road a few blocks south of the main Loyola University Campus located in Rogers Park. I am looking for accounting students and clients that need help and assistance with accounting, auditing, managerial accounting, budgeting, forecasting, business modeling and organizational management and preparation for their CPA, Series 7 and 3 Nasdaq licenses.

I presently perform organizational management, financial, accounting and Excel consulting engagements. I tutor because I enjoy helping accounting students/clients excel in their courses and understanding of accounting and financial markets at alll levels.

I started tutoring college students and individuals studying for their CPA examination when I was in Chicago on my organizational management and financial consulting practice. At that time, I was living in Seattle and had three major centers of business practice (Seattle where a majority of my family still lives; Chicago where our son lives and Baltimore where I had several clients). I expanded tutoring to Seattle before we moved to Chicago to be close to our son. I now tutor primarily in the Chicago area and consult across the country.

I received my BA studies from the University of Puget Sound located in Tacoma Washington graduating Magna Cum Laude and with accounting/finance departmental honors before I moved on to my MBA studies at Seattle University.

I was only 1 of 3 accounting students from a graduating class of 65 that were hired by the Big 4 International CPA accounting offices. My Big 4 accounting experience focused on auditing, individual taxations and on-site organizational management and profitability engagements. The Big 4 experience was followed by joining a very large regional CPA office where we focused on auditing, write up work, organizational management engagements including profitability analysis, enhancement projects and individual and company tax returns and planning.

I have evaluated, trained and hired accounting and management personnel at all levels in many organizations across the country including controllers and chief financial officers. I have extensive hands on experiences with many industries including software, database design/implementation, not for profit, banking, mortgage banking, real estate, residential/commercial building including land development, collections, securities/trading, NASDQ series 7, 3 and 63 licensing and more. My prior consulting experience covers individuals up to companies generating $50MM in annual sales.

I am an excellent tutor, teacher, coach and consultant. I will be happy to assist you achieve your goals in any of your accounting related courses.

Randy, CPA

Accounting

I graduated with my BA degree in accounting Magna Cum Laude at the University of Puget Sound before attending Seattle University for my MBA studies. I was only one of three students from a class of 65 accounting majors to be hired by the big four international CPA accounting offices. Using my CPA certificate and acquired consulting talents, I have hired and trained all levels of accounting and bookkeeping personnel along with several controllers and chief financial officers for my clients over the years. I am an excellent teacher and coach specializing in CRM (client relationship management) software programs and all levels of training accounting, record keepers and finance personnel. Along with my CPA certification, I have held NASDQ 3, 7 and 63 series licenses allowing me to account for, trade and manage all types of securities, options and future contracts and instruments.
