San Diego State University (Business--Accounting)
I was a conscientious student and enjoyed learning. I like helping students to improve their understanding of subject matter and their study habits. I believe that encouraging students to take an interest in subject matter--and discussing it with them enthusiastically--helps to improve their understanding and comprehension.
I graduated from university with high honors and distinction in my major. Before graduating from San Diego State University, I tutored high school and junior high school students in math and social studies. After helping one student, parents recommended me to other parents who wanted to obtain tutoring for their sons/daughters.
I am a former CPA, have been a professional accountant for approximately 30 years, and could provide valuable tutoring services for this subject especially.
I have lived abroad and traveled to many countries. I studied Cultural Geography and subsequently worked a paid note-taker for a Cultural Geography class. I take great interest in the subject and am able to tutor high school students.
After studying Spanish at high school and university, I developed the ability to speak well and have been complimented on my accent by many native speakers. I believe that I could be a valuable tutor for introductory level Spanish students. I was a conscientious student and enjoyed learning. I like helping students to improve their understanding of subject matter and their study habits. I believe that encouraging students to take an interest in subject matter--and discussing it with them enthusiastically--helps to improve their understanding and comprehension.
Before I found Ray I was really struggling in Intermediate Accounting. He got my grade from a "C" to an "A".
What I liked:
-He prepares before every tutoring session to make sure he understands everything you want to go over
-He has a strong accounting background (former CPA)
-He's organized and brings notes to every tutoring session
-He's time flexible
-He's very patient and understanding
Thank you Ray!
Ray prepared for the class printing English pronunciation materials before the class. He helped me identify areas that I need to improve and tips to improve before our next class.
He has helped explain concepts that I didn't get in my college class. I enjoy meeting with Ray. He is a great guy!
Ray is AMAZING. He is very patient and teaches in a very clear and effective manner. Ray was always on time and really spent the time to get the know the learning style of the student. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking looking for a tutor; I will use Ray for the rest of my classes!
I went to Ray needing lots of help with a difficult accounting class for an MBA program. Ray is very nice, funny and a MASTER at accounting!
With Ray, you'll have a tutor who is an experienced, skilled accountant, as opposed to a business student who wants to make a few bucks! Importantly, he is no quitter. Ray works with you until you find a solution, no matter how difficult the problem.
And fair! Ray is highly qualified and a pleasure to work with, but charges a rate that is nearly half of what other tutors charge in this outlandishly expensive city (have a look!).
Ray is doing this because he enjoys helping and he is good at it.
Accounting trouble? Call Ray. You won't regret it.
Ray is a great tutor for accounting. He responds to your emails promptly and is on time. He helped clarify my misunderstandings and related it to the real world. I was easily able to understand the confusing accounting terminologies and ideas with Ray's help. He seems to genuinely care about your success and well-being. He often stopped and made sure I understood his explanations and made sure he wasn't going off on a tangent. If you are ever confused with accounting, Ray is here to lend a hand. His energetic and positive attitude really supports teaching a difficult subject such as accounting. With his background as a CPA, he is more than qualified to tutor accounting.
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.
I am an avid baseball fan after having played the sport for many years. I learned the fundamentals of baseball by playing little league, PONY, COLT, high school, and in adult recreational leagues. I understand strategy and can explain and demonstrate many techniques after many years of experience and enthusiasm.
I graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor's degree (BS) in Business Administration. I graduated with high honors and distinction in my major.
I have worked as an accountant and business administrator for many organizations.
