I was recognized by my faculty peers for my teaching excellence with respect to tutoring undergraduate accounting & business majors during office hours.

I challenged students by emphasizing

"CRITICAL THINKING" techniques for CASE STUDY assignments
"PRACTICAL ADVICE" to improve study skills needed for academic success
"CURRENT EVENTS" relevant to course topics with business media sources

My professional work experience reflects tremendous diversity

International Public Accounting firms (including Arthur Andersen)
Private companies needing financial & managerial accounting expertise
Governmental agencies performing contractual accounting.

Dedication to lesson preparation as well as listening to students concerns over subject materials along with useful insights to help students better understand the relevant meaning of accounting principles in context of real world applications.

Accounting is a very challenging & unique subject when compared to most other undergraduate subjects since much responsibility lies with students to spend significant hours studying course materials & completing homework assignments outside contact time with faculty.

Discipline & Dedication are paramount for students to successfully gaining understanding & application of accounting principles & procedures in business.

Very dedicated to excellence delivering high quality tutoring.

Knowledgeable, patient, and flexible tutor

I had a midterm in managerial accounting that I was desperately unprepared for. James was quick to respond to my request for a tutor and was flexible with my work schedule. We ran through all my study material over several sessions in one week, and I was able to grasp the concepts and comfortably take my midterm. I received an A+! Thanks, James!

James is Great!

We had a very intense midterm to prepare for in strategic financial management. James read through our material, made himself knowledgeable and came prepared to guide our understanding and help us receive understanding we were not grasping in our lectures.

Knowledgeable tutor with excellent teaching skills

James helped me prep for my first exam in ACCT 116 A at Mesa College. James knows his (Assets = Liability + Stockholders Equity) equation very well. He was on target the entire session and recalled the instruction material from memory without hesitation. I would highly recommend James to anyone who needs help with Accounting. I feel more confident going into exam one now that I have met James and plan on having more sessions with James in the future. Covered journal entries, adjusting journal entries, adjusted trial balance, retained earnings statements , income statements, and balance sheets. Additionally we covered account classification: assets, liability, stockholders equity, revenue, and expense accounts. Also covered terminology for defining qualitative characteristics of accounting and accounting concepts, principles, and assumptions.

Highly Experienced and Patient Tutor

I received tutoring from James on Managerial accounting for an MBA class. He was able to explain the conceptual side of each problem so I could fully understand the questions in preparation for a final exam. James is an accounting professor and has been doing accounting work for years.
