Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Business

I have started and operated 5 different businesses over my lifetime, from food service, accounting services, mortgage service and restaurant ownership. I have worked in accounting and taxation for major Fortune 500 companies and used the approach of "who are my customers" to get task done.
Knowledge of business startup cost and operations management have been gained from experience and mentoring from others in the occupations I have.

Career Development

In my experience from teaching a course named "College Success", I have instructed students on utilizing methods of time management, task outlines, and occupational research. Using biographical research to show a person on how to learn from others mistakes can add to their development of success or achieving their goals.

In my professional career, I used these methods to focus on career promotions, skill development for current positions and decision making for career changes.

Cooking

I am the owner and operator of restaurant in which I have created the food entrees and many appetizers that are served. I have worked in a bakery, trained butcher in cutting meat in family business, produce manager of major supermarket. I was featured on Connecticut TV for one of my recipe dishes.

Economics

The effects of economics has a direct impact on the principles of accounting and business as well as personal financial impact.

Knowing what happens in one sector and how it relates to other sectors is the foundation of economics.

With over 30 years in the corporate world, as well as a small business owner I have experiences of business cycles that have impact on the success and failures operations.

My methods of teaching are relationship theory of economic principles and utilization of current events on how these items affect the way we live and run businesses, and handling of the accounting of such actions.

Financial Accounting

I have an MBA in Accounting.

I have taught principles of accounting for various community colleges and business schools, bringing real world experience to the classroom thru ownership of my family owned business and those of my personal tax clients, and application to the principles.

I have over 30 years corporation tax and accounting experience as well as my own small business bookkeeping and tax practice.

Football

I attained a college scholarship for football and played from my youth to college. I have coached youth football and also became a football official for high school and youth leagues with over 5 years experience.

Managerial Accounting

I have an MBA in Accounting.

I have taught principles of accounting for various community colleges and business schools, bringing real world experience to the classroom thru ownership of my family owned business and those of my personal tax clients, and application to the principles.

I have over 30 years corporation tax and accounting experience as well as my own small business bookkeeping and tax practice.

Public Speaking

As part of my 3 years of teaching a college course of "Career Development" I have students present oral presentation of their reports. Presentations were given in one-on-one situations and in panel discussions of pro and con on subjects.

Using development of subject outlines, rehearsal speaking and subject statistics are methods I use to give information to large groups. Eye focus, voice projection and humor when appropriate can gain your listeners attention to the subject and keep them focus on what your saying and information retention of your subject matter.

In the 25 years of my business career I have given talks at financial planning seminars, business tax for small business owners at local Chamber of Commerce groups.
I also led corporation discussion groups to solve business related issues. With this experience I developed ways to ease nervousness, be interactive and close the talk to receive positive feedback.

Softball

I have been a softball umpire for over 17 years, working every level form college down to beginning youth. I have coached youth teams for over 7 years. I understand the rules, mechanics and batting instruction needed to be a productive player. In addition I have available to me the services of physical trainers to aid in teaching softball
