About Geoff


Bio

My tutoring philosophy is there is an "A" in every student!

I believe that one learns by doing. Number Crunching some examples is the best way to improve one's understanding of accounting methods. I'm a visual tutor - l like to make use of the whiteboards, Excel, and scrap paper. I like to develop a list of steps for solving the accounting question. My approach is to ask the leading questions to guide the student to the solutions they're seeking.

I'm a visual tutor - l like to make use of the whiteboards, Excel, and scrap paper. I like to develop a list of steps for solving the accounting question. My approach is to ask the leading questions to guide the student to the solutions they're seeking.

I tutor with enthusiasm, listening and patience... I have a flexible schedule.

I specialize in Accounting and related subjects. I specialize in: Accounting Information Systems, Cost Accounting, Fundamentals of Accounting, Income Tax I, Intermediate Accounting (I & II) • MS Office (Access, Excel, Outlook, & PowerPoint) - all versions, Principles of Accounting (I & II), & QuickBooks.

I'm an accounting graduate of MSU Denver and hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. I tutored at the Community College of Denver (CCD). I established my own Bookkeeping, Accounting and Tax practice. I'm an Enrolled Agent with 8+ years tax prep experience. I also use Xero in my practice. I've found it a very easy to use accounting system, vastly superior to QuickBooks.

I've tutored accounting students from MSU Denver, CSU Global, DU, UCD, and other colleges and universities. I also assist business owners and managers. I have a passion for computers, number crunching, small business, and being organized and prepared.

Taught me more in 3 hours than I have learned in 3 years.

Geoff taught me Excel, Accounting, Finance, and business forecasting all in one session. I am a senior, graduating college in 2 months. Finance has been difficult for me. UNTIL NOW. If you are reading this to determine whether or not Geoff is a good tutor, I will save you time. HE IS. He will get you where you need to be. So stop reading and just book a session with him already. For those naturally inclined skeptics out there, I will tell you this; he came prepared for our tutoring session, having already read through the assignment I needed help on. It saved us so much time. In other words, I wasn't paying Geoff to sit there and try and comprehend what I needed help on. He came with a plan and some awesome points of discussion! Working on the financial statement in Excel was a breeze with his guidance. He showed me tips and tricks, and guided me through the equations necessary. We determined several financial issues this company was facing, and provided solutions. Geoff is understandable and works at a pace conduce to the student. I, for one, really need it spelled out for me when I do not understand something. He did exactly that.

Knowledgeable and patient!

I came to our session not really knowing what I wanted to go over first and he was patient and helped me through many problems that I now have a better understanding of. He explained everything very well and let me ask any questions I had. I'm looking forward to our next sessions!

Geoff is an excellent tutor and very knowledgeable in Excel

Geoff taught the use of error bars, stacked columns, different formulas etc. I would recommend Geoff to anyone who needs tutoring in excel.

Janet, 3 lessons with Geoff

Great Session

Showed up on time and we hit it reaching all the goals as outlined. True to his patience, we got accounts set up and all feels much more organized less daunting. Still more to learn but I am on the road to independently managing my husband's small business accounting. Great session.

Anell, 1 lesson with Geoff

Excellent, clear and thorough

Geoff helps me learn what I need to know when I need to know it. He is clear, responsive and knowledgeable about Quickbooks. It is a pleasure to work with him and learn from him.

Mary, 4 lessons with Geoff

OK tutor but needs to conduct himself better.

Geoff was a good tutor, however he kept wanting to change the times. It was very frustrating. And while in session he answered his phone and went off to talk for 5 minutes, I thought it was rude and unprofessional to take a call when someone is paying for your time.

Tutor responded:

Hello Victoria, thank you for your time to give your honest feedback. I was very well pleased of your feedback that I was a good tutor and I appreciate that. I do sincerely apologize if you felt that frustrated with my offer of changing to another time (when we could meet for longer if needed) and you’ll acknowledge that I kept my commitment. I would love the opportunity to sit down with you so it can be made right. I invite you to contact me at your convenience at via phone or e-mail. I take my tutoring practice seriously and my aim is to support all of my students’ needs by consistently providing the highest quality tutoring. It is true that I did take a brief but urgent call from a family member. You can be assured from my other testimonials that this is not a typical experience. Thanks again for your feedback! Sincerely, Geoff.

A great experience!!

Geoff was fantastic to work with. He was extremely patient and took the time to find out what our needs were before starting the process. He walked us through each step and explained what options we had along the way. He's a very good communicator and an excellent teacher! I would highly recommend Geoff to anyone!

Great Tutor!

Geoff is a great tutor; he's very patient and will assist you in your learning in any way he can. If you do not understand something he will either take a different approach in explaining it or try to relate is to real world situations. He has brought supplemental information to our sessions to provide further information on relevant topics. He is also very responsive; if you have additional questions or need clarification in between sessions he responds timely to emails.
