About Katherine


Bio

I've spent years working in the business world. I've worked for Big 4 CPA firm and some of the top companies in the world. I've owned my own businesses too. I've honed my skills in business, particularly in accounting and finance. I am good at writing well and proofreading so I try to teach these skills to others. Writing well, in whatever career field you enjoy, will take you far! I have three advanced degrees, an MBA, an MS in Taxation, and a Master of Accountancy. All of this...

I've spent years working in the business world. I've worked for Big 4 CPA firm and some of the top companies in the world. I've owned my own businesses too. I've honed my skills in business, particularly in accounting and finance. I am good at writing well and proofreading so I try to teach these skills to others. Writing well, in whatever career field you enjoy, will take you far! I have three advanced degrees, an MBA, an MS in Taxation, and a Master of Accountancy. All of this schooling has taught me to write and to research well. Oh, did I mention, I am also a community college professor and I teach accounting?

So, why do I want to tutor? My staff always told me I am very good at training and teaching and I should teach others. They told me I was patient with them no matter how many times it took for them to understand something. I enjoy working with others and, whether it be in accounting or teaching someone how to use Excel to build highly complex models, I enjoy seeing the "lightbulb" go on when someone really gets what I am teaching them.

Aloha, I teach best practices in studying on a regular basis because I see a need in the local community. I have an MBA, MS in Taxation, Master of Accountancy and I am working on a Ph D. in both Accounting and Education. As an educator, I am aware there is sometimes a lack of understanding best methods and practices to apply in studying. Inefficient and ineffective study methods are time wasters that can result in much lower grades in a student that has the ability to EXCEL yet does not know how to. My experience allows me to help others learn to prepare for exams and give them tips on how to exceed in school. I give all my students and tutor students who are in school studying tips and tricks so they can excel! There are a variety of tools and techniques I have developed over the years for both my students and myself (I've been in school for decades...there is a Ph D in my future) to not only pass but to EXCEL in the subject matter. I provide you and/or your child study skills that can last a lifetime. Please don't hesitate to call me and arrange for a tutoring appointment. Mahalo, Katherine

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Katherine is a down-to-earth, punctual, and highly knowledgeable subject matter expert in both accounting and taxes. She makes learning fun, and she generously shares her invaluable tips to succeed in school. She is a rare find!

Great Tutor, very flexible

Katherine is always on time if not early. She has been very flexible with the lessons I need. She has been exactly what I was looking for, very easy to talk to. She's a great teacher and I always look forward to our sessions.

Robert, 5 lessons with Katherine

Excel Expert!

Katherine is very knowledgeable with Excel. We covered Pivot Tables and VLookups. And she gave me lots of resources to use on my own time while practicing at home.

Jennifer, 1 lesson with Katherine

Good tutor

I was tutored four times by Katherine and she was very patient and professional. She had a good working knowledge of the topic of finance. I would recommend her to others if I knew anyone that needed help.
