About Paul

I'm a CPA with 30 years aerospace and electronics industry manufacturing finance and accounting experience. I scored all 90's on the CPA exam and 94 on Robert Half's Accounting test--also and 96 on its Excel test. Hence, I can help you with with problems or projects requiring Excel (e.g., trial balance and financial statements). I am kind, caring, persistent, patient, and responsive. I don't throw a ton of info at you... I find out where you need help the most and focus on that first.

I taught 4 college courses including, managerial accounting, business taxation, cash flow concepts, and stockholder equity concepts. I am very strong in financial accounting (including all the adjusting and closing entries) and managerial / cost accounting as well as financial statement analysis and capital budgeting. I help you with homework and on-line tests. I prefer to teach you the concepts, but I understand when you mostly just want to get the tests and homework done / passed.

Many of my students noted I am able to very quickly dive into their curriculum and understand and explain how to derive the (right) answers.

Several of my testimonials are for cost / managerial accounting. Some of my students said they tried other tutors who often were not fluent in cost / managerial accounting.

Please consider giving me a try as soon as you feel you are falling behind in your class. Some students wait until they are way behind or have already struggled on exams--hence making it tough to recover.
