Hello and thank you for looking at my profile! My name is Garrett and I am a Certified Public Accountant with six years of experience as an Accounting instructor. I know that Accounting scares people; in fact, my first Accounting class scared me! But, I had a great teacher who made the class fun and interesting. She related the course concepts to real world examples. I was surprised at how Accounting affects my everyday life and how understanding Accounting concepts helps business professionals from entry-level employees to senior managers or even those who want to start their own business. I loved Accounting so much that I decided to become a CPA and passed the exam on the first attempt!

When I teach Accounting, I try to incorporate many of the same things that worked for me when I was an Accounting student. I use language that is easy to understand, and I use practical examples to reinforce Accounting concepts. I do this by spending time teaching Accounting concepts so that students can see how they can solve the problems on their own. If you are interested in pursuing a career in Accounting as a CPA, I will be happy to help you with more advanced courses as you complete your Bachelor's or Master's degree programs. And if your passion is not Accounting but you still need to pass Accounting 101, then I'll help you get through it!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Business

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration and a Master's Degree in Accounting.

I have prior teaching experience which includes: Introduction to Business, Marketing, Business Communication, Business Writing, & Management.

I also own my own small business.

Microsoft Access

I have experience both teaching & using Microsoft Access.

My prior classroom experience showed students how to organize data with appropriate table design & naming, reduce redundancy of data entry by relating information between tables, using queries to retrieve/display data, using forms to enter & display data, using reports to produce data, backing up & archiving data in Access, and securing Access databases.

Understanding how a database program like Access works is very helpful when learning other software packages that you will find in the Business world.

Microsoft Outlook

I use Outlook on a daily basis.

If you haven't started using the Calendar & Task list features available in Outlook, you could be missing quite a time-saving opportunity.

Outlook is a great way to keep your email, appointments, reminders, & contacts organized so that you can reference this information as you need it.

Public Speaking

I have over 5 years of experience as a public speaker.

Additionally, I was a member of Toastmasters International.

QuickBooks

Part of my CPA practice includes helping business owners use accounting software. I set up Quickbooks to work for smaller businesses. In addition, I have taught a class on setting up, using, and troubleshooting Quickbooks for small business owners & bookkeepers.

Tax Preparation

I am a licensed CPA practicing in the State of Ohio since 2010. I prepare individual, corporate, payroll, & partnership income tax returns at the Federal, Ohio, & Ohio municipality levels.

In addition, I have taught a few courses on Income tax preparation.

Very Informative — I had my first accounting tutoring session with Gary about a week ago. We went through chapter 1 of my accounting textbook that discusses the Principles of Accounting. We discussed why these principles are important as you get into the other chapters later in the course when you have to make your own judgement calls. I look forward to more tutoring sessions with Gary. ...
