I possess extensive and broad experience in Financial and Managerial Accounting that encompasses large and medium-size corporate environments as well as small business and S-Corporation entities. This includes constructing General Ledgers and Charts of Accounts and preparing Federal and state tax returns. I currently consult to entrepreneurial business by helping them formulate financial plans and forecasts and establish sound accounting and internal control practices.
My corporate experience includes SEC reporting for publicly traded firms, and managing the transitional accounting function for a large consumer products company during its sale of an operating division. I also served as a lead project manager for a major financial services firm as it adopted an Activity Based Costing system, and I chaired its Corporate Finance Governance Council, which resolved complex accounting and financial control issues in a highly dynamic business.
My formal training includes successful completion of many graduate-level accounting and finance courses.
My English instruction methods build upon the student's current level of proficiency and rapidly build vocabulary while constructing a solid grammatical foundation that supports improved comprehension, reading, writing, and speaking. The student acquires confidence and ease with the language as his/her facility increases.
Many American students of the Romance languages find their studies difficult because they were never taught proper English grammar. Concepts such as object pronouns and the subjunctive (congiuntivo in Italian) are, well, foreign to them, and I am sensitive to these issues.
My method combines reading, speaking, listening and rapid vocabulary development to build comfort and facility in La Piu Bella Lingua. My background in Medieval and Renaissance Studies provides further historical context and perspective.
During my tenure as a Director of Business Analytics and a Senior Analyst, I applied a great variety of statistical methods and techniques to analyze and improve operational effectiveness, describe and model time series behaviors for predictive capabilities, identify service gaps and strategic opportunities, streamline processes and procedures, and statistically map customer interaction pathways and nodes to develop robust engagement campaigns.
In addition, I trained associates on statistical analysis and I introduced many statistical approaches to solving business issues while advocating fact-based, rational decision making.
