About Korey

Thank you for taking a moment to view my profile and consider me for your tutoring needs! I hope that you have made the choice to get help before its too late. Most of the courses that I tutor have quantitative components; and waiting too long to get assistance can be tragic, even if you don't choose me.

My experience has helped me to develop an uncanny ability to converse and correspond in a frank yet appropriate manner. My presentation is direct, but consistent with a professionalism, and decorum that you would not expect, but find surprisingly refreshing and at many times entertaining. This stuff is difficult, but it doesn't have to be boring. I promise, with me, it won't be.

I have over 20 years of experience tutoring students at every level. Most of my students are college level business majors, looking for Accounting, Marketing, Management, or Economics assistance, but I can certainly help with elementary and high school level coursework as well.

In addition to my dedication towards struggling students, I have a small Business Finance & Consulting firm; and have extrapolated that experience to offer the most cutting edge and real world applications available. I offer both one-on-one sessions, and small-group instruction as well. I offer the opportunity to work with customized and customizable simulations and hands-on activities for real life applications. My strongest tutoring assets are the real world examples that I create which really helps the student to understand, and conceptualize the topic, most of my students seem to really appreciate that; as evidenced by the testimonials offered.

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile page; and for your consideration. I'm here to help, and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

I graduated from college with a degree in business. Since graduation, I have setup 4 businesses in total. Two of the businesses were non profit corporations. Another was an S-type corporation, and one sole proprietorship. I am sufficiently familiar with the dynamics of business and the needs to comply with regulatory agencies as well. Students would receive "real world" applications, if they take advantage of my skill set and experience. Lastly, I am a California CPA candidate, so my ability to help with accounting is considerable.

Elementary (K-6th)

My tutoring experience started over 20 years ago when I was in High School trying to earn extra money by helping local students strengthen their understanding of various subjects. I am currently qualified through WyzAnt to tutor Elementary Math, Elementary Science, Reading, and English. I am confident that my background in tutoring both children and adults with some of the most fundamental subjects will prove helpful for any child struggling with fractions, multiplication, and division; along with various topics in elementary level science courses, and English.

Public Speaking

I have an extensive background in public speaking. I have had to give many speeches as a result of my professional responsibility in business. I have taken several public speaking and speech writing courses as well. I have assisted CEOs and other high level executives with their speaking needs as well.

QuickBooks

I am an accountant by profession. I utilize QuickBooks in my business and those of my clients. I have tutored some people on how QuickBooks works, its limitations and strengths. I have opened businesses, closed businesses, done various backup procedures, any transaction you can imagine, and moved software to different computers. I am confident that my QuickBooks experience, which goes beyond 10 years, is sufficient to assist anyone looking to learn more about QuickBooks.

Tax Preparation

I have my CTEC, my PTIN, and EFIN. I have done personal tax returns for clients, for several years.

I understand items that can complicate tax returns, like gains and losses, both passive and active, and inheritances.

I am familiar with various tax software as well.
