I earned my associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in Accounting.

Professionally, I work full-time as an accounting manager for a public agency. I have experience teaching accounting part-time as adjunct faculty, and for the past 23 years, I have performed bookkeeping services for small businesses.

As a tutor, I listen closely, offer tips when needed, and can provide additional practice, if requested. I can cater my sessions to meet a variety of learning needs and even have experience working with special needs students. When a student succeeds and their confidence grows, it is the most rewarding feeling to know I may have played even a small part in that.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a session!

Subjects

Business

Business,

Business

As a mortgage underwriter, I have an opportunity to evaluate business financials to determine cash flow available for principals on a daily basis. In a prior role, I analyzed business performance to determine if it was prudent to enter into joint ventures with other entities. My work experience has taught me about contract law, human resources, cost-benefit analysis, and break-even principles. That experience, plus my education in accounting make me well-suited to tutor business concepts.
Financial Accounting,

Financial Accounting

I got my associates degree and undergrad degree in accounting. I am enrolled in a Master's of Accounting program right now. I have a passion for this subject and it shows! I have also been a bookkeeper for small businesses for many years. I created and manage the charts of accounts, record transactions and prepare financial statements as needed.
Managerial Accounting,

Managerial Accounting

I teach managerial accounting at a local vocational school. I retained my notes and textbook from my undergrad courses in managerial and cost accounting for easy reference.
Marketing

Marketing

I took a marketing course as part of my undergrad business degree, and applied those concepts in the capstone strategy course. Professionally, I leveraged those same concepts to plan, develop and execute strategic marketing campaigns using direct mail, telephone, and in-person contacts. I can make marketing terminology relatable with real life examples. I even retained my notes and text books for easy reference.

I took several mathematics courses in college and earned A’s in each. I use the same concepts regularly to calculate break-even points, ratios, and other important figures. I have tutored students in algebra for a couple years now, each with a different learning style and different strengths. Through that experience, I have learned techniques to help students grasp the material regardless of their starting confidence level.

Knowledgeable Tutor as well as Patient

Cathy did well in explaining the reasons accounts were recorded given the adjusting entries. She also taught me that cash accounts are never used in adjusting entries which will be valuable to know in the future.
