I have been a public accountant for over 30 years. My focus has been in financial accounting and taxation. I am also experienced in setting up automated accounting systems. I currently work with Quickbooks. I am a QB Pro Advisor, through this program I am able to stay current with Quickbooks products. I have also been an adjunct professor of accounting at a number of local colleges in Chicago. My expertise is in Financial Accounting and Taxation. I have taught Cost and Managerial Accounting as well.

Teaching is my first love, I may sound arrogant, but I am able to breakdown complex concepts and explain them to others. My favorite teaching style can be described as Socratic. I break subjects down into parts, and answer questions with very specific questions. My goal is to teach the material so it may be utilized in future studies. I try to leave my students with tools to create new knowledge instead of just memorizing material. The study of Accounting is cumulative, everything learned in the past is fair game in the future.

Don't worry, before I choose my teaching method, I listen very carefully to what my students are telling me. I can usually hone in on what is really bothering them. From there I develop my teaching method.

As a public accountant I have learned that it is very important to discover my clients interests. Once we connect via our interests, we are able to connect in solving business problems. The same is true with teaching.

Finally, as I mentioned above I try to connect through common interests. In addition to accounting I have a masters degree from the Loyola University School of Law in Chicago. I am a licensed EMT-B (Illinois) and I am a certified CPR instructor for the American Heart Association. I am trying to teach myself how to fly remote control helicopters and I have a great family.

I am not boring. When you are considering a tutor please think of me.

Thank you.

Best Tutor I Have Ever Had! — Abe is an absolutely incredible tutor! I contacted him for help with tax, a subject that I had previously found to be terrifying. However, Abe eased my fears by preparing lesson plans that made the material simple and easy to understand. He did not waste any time and helped me focus on the main issues.
