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. I am a financial professional with over 15+ years of experience with emphasis in accounting, finance, economic analysis and forecasting.

I was able to work with Michael on material for my graduate level managerial economics class semester. Our sessions together proved to be most helpful. I was able to work through problems with him and simultaneously gain a clear understanding of the subject matter. He was very quick to respond to my emails and was as readily available to communicate via text. I was very appreciative of the fact that he truly vested an interest in my success and was able to invest some of his own time to clear up any frustrations I had with the problems sets. I would strongly recommend Michael and most likely will return with more questions this semester.
Michael walked me through material to review for an upcoming exam. He walked me through the answers and explained some of the confusing concepts.
We are almost finished with what was the goal in 2014. Michael has done a fantastic job and I know I could not have done it without him helping and guiding the work. A toast to Michael.
Michael helped me understand basic and complex concepts in a graduate level finance class. My background is not focused in finance and he was able to clearly explain and teach me finance concepts starting from a rudimentary level up to highly advanced corporate finance scenarios. His teaching methodology made the material resonate with me and grasp previously unfamiliar concepts. I highly recommend Michael.
Michael was eager and ready to help me at the last minute, just when I was drowning is a sea of Economics frustration. He is really easy to talk to and made the point to make sure I got what I needed from the session.
Michael is an extremely helpful and knowledgeable tutor. Outside of being a huge help with homework and grasping concepts, he puts in time outside of a lesson to further familiarize himself with the topic. That way he can provide the adequate knowledge to his students. He is a very friendly, likable guy and will not bore one to death during lessons. I would recommend him to anyone seeking help in any type of accounting or economic classes.
Michael is a valuable resource that I am planning to utilize again during my MBA program and my own consulting business.
He was a very good tutor, it was a hard subject for my daughter. They would go over a specific subject and then he explains it to her. She just got her grade back and she got a B+.
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.
