I have been tutoring college students since 2011. I specialize in Accounting and Finance along with computer subjects such as Excel and Microsoft Windows. I am very patient - just read my reviews - and have been able to help students bring their grades up significantly. I "discovered" tutoring during my studies for a master's degree. I love helping others understand Accounting and Corporate Finance. I can think of nothing as satisfying as seeing a student "get it" or have the elusive "Ah-ha" moment they have been struggling to find.

I have over 20 years of professional experience in accounting, information technology and leadership. As a Servant Leader who is focused on helping others, I am caring and patient. I can take complex accounting and technology topics and simplify them for the non-technical learner.

Trained by the US military to teach and mentor, I have led many over my long career. As a NYS Certified Public Accountant, I have served individuals, corporations and groups. I have been a "Big 4" Public Accountant, Corporate Controller, Project Manager, Network Administrator, Military Commander, Auditor and Computer Security Team Chief.

With several years of education and experience in computer security, I have been successful explaining complex, technical data to leaders, subordinates and peers. I use these skills to make complex accounting and finance concepts easy to understand for my tutoring students.

I've held US Security Clearances from Secret to Top Secret and have a high regard for confidentiality.

I will not suggest that I am a tutor of a hundred subjects. I can help with a few, but, I assure you, I will be effective in those few.

Lately, my focus has been on business subjects like accounting, finance and consumer math.

Limiting my travel to Buffalo, Rochester, Batavia and anywhere in between, I am willing to help anyone who has the sincere desire to learn.
