My name is Shane, and I am a new resident of Virginia, recently moved from NJ (September) 2013. As I continue to get acclimated with the area, I decided a way to give back to the community would be to teach students in need! Accounting is not hard by any means and as a recent graduate, I know the best methods to hone in on the details needed to actually retain the information. Currently, I am a Certified Public Accounting (CPA) in the public accounting field working as an external auditor. I specialize in insurance and not-for-profit accounting, as well as IT auditing. Aside from the tutoring aspect, I am also looking at this as a networking opportunity with up-and-coming professionals like myself.
Why I should be your tutor:
I am very passionate about my career as well as helping others realize their career potential(whether that is in accounting or not). I feel one of my core strengths is my interpersonal skills, which transitions nicely when teaching. I hold myself to a high standard regarding professionalism and will not require payment unless the parent or student is satisfied with my tutoring.
One of the major milestones for any accounting professional is the CPA exam. With my study methods, I passed each section within a two-month span (one testing window) with my lowest score at an 85. That being said, I would love to help an aspiring CPA prep for this test.
In terms of travel, I am happy to travel as needed and maintain a 12 hour cancellation policy.
To Recap -
I can teach the following subjects/accounting related courses:
Insurance accounting (statutory account principles if applicable)
Certified Public Accounting (CPA) Exam
Business and environment concepts (BEC)
Financial accounting and reporting (FAR)
I look forward to helping any and all interested!
I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I have been an accountant for three years working and maintaining accounting records within various businesses (Government Subcontractor, Electrical Contractor, etc). Currently I am a public accountant working as an auditor in the DMV area. Accounting can be tricky at times, but I have a few methods to make it more understandable!
I have been a social skills coach for about 4 months helping my clients with reading body language, picking up on social cues, and feeling more comfortable in social situations.
In addition to my social skills coaching, I help with pubic speaking and networking. I feel that public speaking is more to do with confidence and how one perceives themselves in the eyes of the viewer. I can help breakdown what to do and how to do it.
Great Tutor, Knowledgeable, and Patient. — I would highly recommend Shane as a financial accounting tutor. He is knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. Nice attitude and pleasant disposition.
