I specialize in tutoring accounting
, middle school and high school math
, and SAT test
Half of successful test-taking involves strategy and becoming very familiar with the test itself, and the other half involves reading
, problem solving skills, and adequate knowledge. For SAT
prep, I have specific review materials that I use that help students learn strategies, improve areas that they are weak in, and that give them a lot of practice in the actual test.
I am patient, experienced, and knowledgeable.
I am a licensed CPA
in two states. I have taught accounting at the college level and now devote my professional time exclusively as a tutor. My diverse accounting experience in the business
world, both as a public accountant as well as controller and CFO, provides an added context for students taking accounting courses.
Many of my accounting students are tutored online and because of the technology, the sessions are both seamless and enjoyable. I use Power Point
presentations to present information, screen sharing to go over homework problems that I have done, and white board presentations.
In my career as a CPA, I had to use and continuously develop the following skills:
Knowing how to effectively question, learn, take initiative, be curious, research, problem solve, and process information and knowledge are priceless skills, not just in academics but in the larger world.
I find these to be the major challenges particularly for accounting and math students.
Often the secret is that subjects need to be broken down into very bite size pieces.
Tutoring sessions can be fun and the time can fly. Often I transform the session into an experience where both the student and I work together as a team to solve problems and to understand new material. This approach seems to engage and motivate the student often more than a traditional teaching approach. But sometimes that approach is more appropriate and I tailor each session to what is needed at that time.
