About Michael

I am a financial professional with over 15+ years of experience with emphasis in accounting, finance, economic analysis and forecasting. Additionally, a graduate degree in economics with minor in accounting has afforded me a varied background in subjects such as macroeconomics, microeconomics, money and banking, finance and accounting. I am also a QuickBooks ProAdvisor, certified in Pro, Premier and Enterprise Solutions.

Personal philosophy regarding tutoring is to be prepared and keep it simple. I am excellent at explaining economic and financial concepts in basic terms by utilizing various visual examples. I enjoy the one-to-one interaction between Student and Tutor. I have always enjoyed a phone call from a student to tell me that they got an "A" rather than a lower grade after tutoring. Looking forward to being your Tutor.
