Approved subjects

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.

Accounting

I teach principles of accounting, intermediate accounting, managerial accounting, and advanced accounting.

Business

In addition to holding a Master's degree in Accounting, I consulted with small businesses on everything from financing to hiring employees in my CPA firm for almost 7 years. I regularly tutor students on strategic management, including Porter's Five Forces analysis, Porter's generic strategies, PEST analysis, SWOT analysis, and product life cycle management.

Finance

I teach the principles of corporate finance. I have a great deal of experience teaching capital budgeting and weighted-average cost of capital.

Microsoft Excel

I teach basic Excel functions in all versions of Excel, as well as certain advanced functions. I regularly use pivot tables, SUMIF, SUMIFS, COUNTIF, VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, INDEX-MATCH and linked worksheets within a workbook.

Microsoft Word

I teach basic functions in all versions of Word, as well as certain advanced functions. I have also assisted students in writing papers in APA format.

QuickBooks

I have over 10 years experience performing bookkeeping on Quickbooks and training others in its use. I have used it in a variety of industries, from retail stores to professional service forms, and for all types of business entities.

Tax Preparation

In addition to being a certified public accountant, I emphasized income tax law in my master's degree program. I prepared income tax returns from 1982 to 2003, most recently in my certified public accounting firm. Additionally, I worked as an internal revenue agent at the Internal Revenue Service from 2003 to 2007. Finally, I taught income tax classes for the University of Maryland University College in 2009 and 2010.
