Roosevelt University, Chicago (CPA BSBA ACCTG)
Loyola University School of Law, Chicago (Master's)
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. 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… Read more
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. He was always prepared and worked with me at my own pace, which I found to be very refreshing. He was extremely personable and just an overall pleasant person to be around. Although Abe helped me with tax, I would recommend him highly as a tutor in any subject. Working with Abe was one of the best educational experiences I have ever had. Abe is more than just a great educator - he is an amazing person with a true passion for helping others. For any person struggling with a subject or just wanting to learn more, Abe is your guy!
Abe was super helpful. He taught helpful tricks but most of all he helped me understand accounting on a deeper level. The other great thing about Abe is he met me exactly where I was in terms of understanding. We didn't waste any time on things I already understood. Best accounting tutor ever.
Abe was a very pleasant and patient man. Although it took a great amount of time to rectify our problem, he spent 5 hours on the phone with a Quickbooks rep. until they were able to straighten out our problems. He was an excellent teacher and I would highly recommend him and would use him again with our next problem.
Abe was very cordial, prompt and made himself readily available to my schedule. We did a session together in my home as I had the QuickBooks application on my computer. Other tutors were not as inclined to come to my home. Abe explained everything, demonstrated the software, and even provided explanations to such questions as Why?
I strongly recommend Abe to anyone who really wants to learn QuickBooks as I have decided to become QuickBooks certified. Also, I too am a WyzAnt tutor in the financial services field and am proud that Abe is a fellow tutor.
I used Abraham for assistance with review for the CPA exam. He was very knowledgeable in the area that we were reviewing.
Abe was very responsive to my request for tutoring. He got back to me right away and was flexible and accommodating in setting up meetings. He was patient and made sure I understood the material he was teaching. I would use him again and recommend others do too.
I was struggling to study for a college accounting test. Abe was very thorough and able to help me comprehend the material. He is very eager to assist and is extremely flexible with time. I encourage anyone having difficulty with accounting to give Abe a try.
On multiple occasions Abraham has been a lifesaver in both my professional life and student life. Accounting/bookkeeping has been a part of my work life for a few years now, but it wasn't until I entered a formal accounting program one year ago that I realized where the gaps in my knowledge existed and that working with Quickbooks does not make an accountant. And while this is not uncommon under the circumstances, this could have been a real obstacle if I didn't have Abraham to fill the gaps. The high level of skill is evident and I would recommend him to anyone. He has proved to be an invaluable resource.
I needed someone to help me get my business' Quickbooks organized as well as set up my company payroll. Abraham was very patient with me and his breadth of experience and accounting knowledge was very crucial in getting it all done the way it should be done. I strongly recommend Abraham if you are looking for a knowledgeable CPA that has the most skills you can find with Quickbooks, payroll and taxes. Abraham was also able to review my prior tax year filings and guided me in doing an amendment to get a refund on an overpayment of taxes. I am very pleased with my tutor and find that I am indeed getting good value for what I am paying.
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.
