In the Fall of 2010 Antoninette G. came to me needing help to pass her college Accounting class. Her grade was barely above passing and she was getting lost with the material as the course went on. We began meeting for 2 hrs a week and started reviewing her chapters and covering homework assignments. Soon she began making progress and was passing weekly tests and getting credit for homework turned in. In the middle of the semester she requested from her teacher to turn in back assignments and was given permission. Even for partial credit - these back assignments pulled her grade up a little. We worked on and completed her semester project of creating a small company and keeping the Acctg books for 1 month. Finally we studied for 3 hours before her final which she passed. She was so surprised and received a B in the class and earned her credits.
In the Spring of 2010 I began working with a college student named Allen M. who was having a lot of problems with his Managerial Accounting class. His uncompleted assignments were piling up and his understanding of the material was weak. In the third week of the class we started covering fundamentals and completing his homework. I provided a printout of handling Accounting entries and worked with his knowledge of the double-entry system. Allen soon grasped the basics and the groundwork was set for him to slowly started pulling his grade up. Two months later he was solving problems and preparing financial statements. His test grades were improving until Allen finished with a final grade of B. His persistent efforts in picking up the material and learning it worked well to his credit.
My last tutoring student was a young lady here in Kansas City named Misty G. who was struggling with her Accounting I class. Her first test grade was a 70 so we started meeting for 1-2 hrs a week to bring her grade up. By Dec 2010 we had her class average in the upper 80's and on her final exam she scored a 90. With all her homework turned in and graded she ended up with a B+. She was not only happy but has learned to apply herself and is continuing on with her degree program.
