I am a 50-something CPA experienced in public accounting, manufacturing and cost accounting, and tutoring students in accounting, algebra, physics, trigonometry, and various other subjects. I have 2 children, ages 23 and 19, and am looking to give more back to others of the blessings I have been given by God. I also sing well with a baritone/bullfrog bass voice and play several instruments, including cello, string bass, bass guitar, trombone, and tuba. I play and sing in a ministry band called Firewheel Gospel Jubilee.

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 have completed 32 hours of undergraduate accounting. I have also completed 12 hours graduate accounting. I have more than 20 years experience in public accounting, general ledger, manufacturing, and teaching.

Algebra 1

After tutoring, I pulled my grade from an F to a B+.

I have also tutored several students from my church successfully as well as my own 2 children, now ages 23 and 19.

With my knowledge of Algebra, I am now able to construct Excel spreadsheets with complex formulas.

Algebra 2

I scored 670 on math part of SAT, putting me in the top 1/2 of 1 percent in the nation.

Microsoft Excel

I have more than 15 years of experience with Excel. I have developed charts and pivot tables for many uses. I have created and used spreadsheets to figure depreciation, job and product costs, and numerous other things. When tested, I have been rated from advanced to expert level.

Prealgebra

I am also approved to tutor Algebra 1 and 2. I also had a 100 average in college algebra.

I also have a special empathy for students struggling with algebra because I was prior to receiving tutoring. Since then, I have successfully tutored several students, mostly from my church.

SAT Math

I was a member of the National Honor Society in high school.

I was also a regional qualifier in UIL Number Sense all 4 years in high school and finished 5th in region one year, missing state by one question.
