About STEPHEN

Are you having trouble understanding debit and credit? Do you understand how to determine inventory turn or average sales days outstanding. Can you differentiate between a short term or long term asset? Do you understand the difference between a direct write off and a reserve? How about valuing an inventory at the lower of cost or market? Do you know there are several definitions of "market" all of which acceptable.If you have answered no to any of these questions; I can help! With these and hundreds of other accounting questions
My name is Steve and I am a CPA. I attended Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio, a school renowned for their school of business and accounting where have I excelled in all related subjects.

I have been a controller and chief financial officer for over forty years, companies that ranged in size from fifteen million to six hundred million dollars. During that time,I was responsible for several conversions. Sometimes, from a hand posted system; other times from one electronic system to a more sophisticated system. If these systems were to work properly, everyone having access to their particular job, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and inventory costing had to be well educated in the accounting of their particular areas.

It was in teaching this diverse group of employees that I realized I was good at explaining accounting concepts to a a diverse group of students. Some had little or no accounting knowledge;others had or were working om their accounting degrees. For those without accounting knowledge it was basic fundamentals, like debit and credit. Without that basic knowledge, the potential for inaccurate postings increased substantially. I helped those who were taking accounting understand and complete their homework assignments.

I have had many success stories in the people who I have taught. One women went on to be assistant controller after working for me as accounts receivable supervisor; and another worked for me as a staff accountant and is now assistant controller for the city of El Segundo. I enjoy knowing that I have played a part in giving them the knowledge and confidence to expand their careers. One of the comments, most told to me is that I am very patient and by using actual examples it made the material less dry.

I am very patient with my students. I also encourage students to call me should they have a problem. I don't charge for those calls if they are less then fifteen minutes. My sole consideration is for my students to understand the material.
