About Nancy

Hi there,

I hold a Doctoral degree in Business Administration and Accounting and love working with other learners. If you are the learner --- or your child is--- there is no need to ever feel intimidated by me or a tutoring session. I am someone's nice mom and others' buddy, so no worries. So much of learning and achieving is based on self-confidence along with academics, so I focus on both. Often people do poorly on tests, not because they do not know the material, rather because they have been unable to organize it in their head by connecting the dots in a retrievable manner and still keep their confidence high….this is something I can help learners with! When it comes to accounting it is not so much about learning accounting but learning how to learn accounting. The terrain of this subject can be quite sticky so if you are stumped by your Managerial Accounting Course, please know you are not alone!

I have successfully written graduate school papers in excess of one hundred pages, use Grammarly, RefWorks, StatTools, SPSS, PhStat, EndNote, and proficient in appropriate formats...APA, etc. I adore Excel and can make your life easier if you need help in this area as well. I have twenty-five years in marketing and a finance background that includes Commercial Lending and wholesale securities.

Give me a call or contact me, let's see if what you need in the time-frame you need it, is doable... I am painfully honest and will not waste your or your family's time or money. Best wishes and don't forget learning is a lifelong endeavor...so embrace it! (I'll get you to smile yet!)

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.

Accounting

I have a Bachelors in Accounting, a M.S. in Accounting, and I am a Doctor of Business and Accounting.

Series 63

From 1985 to 2010 I held a Series 7 (full stock brokerage) securities license. I passed the Series 7 exam on the first attempt long before it was computer based, the Series 63 or blue sky rules, as it was called at that time was easily completed withing an hour. During this period of time my position as a Regional Pension Manager for several large insurance companies such as Cigna, required that I use my license in the sale of wholesale securities when designing and selling both defined benefit and defined contribution pension plans. In this process I worked with institutional money managers such as Wilshire & Associates, Loomis Sayles, and Ken Heebner. For two years I practiced at the retail level as well. I have set up new retail securities branches for my employers which requires a deep level of knowledge of compliance and NASD regulations.

Very patient and thorough. — I had my first tutoring session with Nancy online. She was helpful and patient. She took the time to look at my accounting problems before our lesson and investigated my text book, which means she was very thorough. I look forward to more sessions. ...
