My name is Eliezer, and I am currently a graduate student at Pace University, pursuing my Masters of Science in Taxation degree. Pace University, in downtown NYC, is a highly regarded university that has a Taxation program ranked #6 in 2013 according to tax hiring authorities. In this program, I have furthered my knowledge in accounting and taxation. While a student, I have tutored some of my classmates in the course material in preparation for our final exams.
I did my undergraduate degree in Accounting at Touro College, a private college in Brooklyn, NY. I took all prerequisite courses to sit for the CPA exam as part of the degree program. At Touro, I received numerous commendations for my studies, including the Becker Conviser CPA Award. A year ago, I successfully passed the CPA exam on my first attempt, and have extensive knowledge of accounting, finance, and economics. Additionally, I am a great writer and well-grounded in my command of the English language.
My methods of teaching are extremely diverse. I believe that every student learns best a different way, and I am comfortable in teaching a variety of methods to help my students excel. I do not believe in rote memorization. Students should be able to think critically and will see amazing results! I enjoy giving over my knowledge, and my students will love my commitment to their understanding of the material.
Coursework I teach:
- CPA Exam
- Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam
- Undergraduate & Graduate accounting and taxation
- Various finance, economics, and business courses
- English proofreading, grammar, etc...
I have been playing, following, and watching organized basketball, and the NBA since I was 5 years old. I know a lot about the rich NBA history, as well as statistics, historical rosters, award winners (MVP, Rookie of the Year, etc...), and the rules.
I have played in organized basketball leagues, and I have also been a referee in a summer camp for teenagers. Given my experience and ability to play well, I believe I have ample ability to teach you the history of the game, how to play either 1-on-1,3-on-3, or 5-on-5, and most importantly, tips on how to improve your game.
As a religious Jew, I have been studying the Bible since the age of 3. I have been enrolled in bible classes, and have learned the Bible many times.
After graduating from high school, I continued with my Bible studies for several years in a Talmudic school in Brooklyn, where I learned Bible and Talmudic law. I have a vast amount of knowledge in this area, and have helped people with their Bible studies in elementary school, high school, and at the collegiate level.
I am currently a student at Pace University, going for my master's of science in taxation degree. Concurrently, I am interning at a prestigious NYC accounting firm. As one who has passed the CPA exam, I have extensive knowledge of all areas of business, including accounting, finance, management, marketing, strategy, and more. I have experience working in a business setting and feel comfortable with my knowledge, as it pertains ti transmitting it over to other students.
I began playing chess when I was just 5 years old, and it has become a passion of mine. I especially enjoy competing against grandmasters, and when I win (albeit not often), I always have a lot of pride. Online chess is also something I have been involved with in the last several years.
Having read various chess history and tactical books, I am qualified to teach you how to play chess, and how to develop strategies to put yourself in the best position to compete against anyone!
My history with the Hebrew language is lengthy. In addition to my practical and theoretical knowledge of Hebrew, I have also spent time teaching others about various parts of Hebrew. These include idiomatic phrases, male/female tenses, past/present/future tenses, and plural/singular usage. Hebrew can be tricky for those unacquainted with it, and it differs a lot from English, but with my assistance, my pupils will gain so much from me.
The best way to learn Hebrew is not to simply memorize words and phrases. Rather, the most important step to Hebrew is learning the structure. I'll give you an example: In English, we would say "The boy went to the store." If we took this at face value, and typed the sentence into Google Translate or some other translation service, they would translate the words as "Hayeled Holech La'chanut". However, in that, there are several nuances that apply to Hebrew that are extremely critical to master. I have word books, dictionaries, and other aids at my disposal to ensure you master Hebrew and can begin speaking like an Israeli.
As someone who has engaged in Biblical studies since he was a young child, I feel like I am more than qualified to tutor in Hebrew. I regularly study both ancient and modern Hebrew texts, and I feel comfortable that I can give over my vast knowledge to students who want to learn this language, one of the official languages of Israel.
I studied in an Israeli school for several months as an adult. In that school, and during my stay, I had to speak and read Hebrew almost all of the time. I am now confident in my ability to effectively transmit this knowledge to my pupils. They say experience is the best teacher, and I was there, in Israel, to learn the language properly in the right environment.
In addition to my practical knowledge of the Hebrew language, I also took the Hebrew regents exam in high school in NY State. My Ivrit/Hebrew proved to be excellent, as I scored very highly on the exam. I can help you master Hebrew as well!
At my current job, we use Microsoft Outlook extensively to perform almost all basic tasks, including emails, file storage, calendars,and more.
As a teacher in this subject, I can walk students through this complex program in a step-by-step manner, to ensure they too can learn about a program which is used ubiquitously around the world in office settings.
Religion is a subject which I have studied extensively, particularly monotheistic religions. My particular area of expertise revolves around Judaism.
Growing up as a practicing Jew, I enrolled in Jewish religious private schools, where I studied traditional texts, customs, and norms of Judaism. As I grew older, I began to study and understand religious methods more and more, such as divine inspiration, leadership roles, and current views on religion. The American landscape is another part of religion that fascinates me.
In high school, I took a year-long course dedicated to Jewish history, and indeed I learned a lot about the commencement of different types if religions.
After high school, I enrolled in a baccalaureate-level Talmudic Rabbinical college, where I continued my studies, and where I will soon be awarded a degree in Talmudic studies. My religious studies and understanding of how norms work rapidly increased during this time.
In particular, have tutored many people in learning about Judaism, including the vast history of the religions beginning that dates back some 3,000+ years.
My knowledge of different belief systems help other become comfortable as I teach them all I know about this deep subject.
I have been playing table tennis ("ping pong") every summer for the last few years. I have become an avid player, progressing from a novice who could not play if his life depended on it, to an expert on the sport, having studied the methods of table tennis greats Zhang Jike and Dimitrij Ovtcharov.
