About Dianna

Hello! Thank you for considering me for your tutoring needs in Accounting, QuickBooks or general business concepts.

I am a licensed CPA (Hawaii and California) with over 25 years of accounting experience. I began in Accounts Payable and worked my way through the ranks to the Controller level. I have worked for various companies ranging in sales from $50K up to $100M.

In addition to working as a financial controller, I have also taught for Hawaii Community College as an adjunct faculty member from 2009 through the Spring, 2014 semester. Subject matters taught include: QuickBooks, Microsoft Office Suite (2007 and 2010), Introduction to Business and Entrepreneurship.

I have experience with training staff members, discussing technical nuances of GAAP, applying and implementing new accounting standards and analyzing and recording complex (and simple) transactions. For 25 years I've been writing journal entries, analyzing transactions, working with internal and external customers of accounting information - my mind works in Debits and Credits and transactions :-).

I’ve worked with students on an individual basis to ensure that they are able to grasp and apply concepts introduced.

I would love to help you with your studying needs in accounting, QuickBooks or general business.

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

Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Accounting (Financial only, no tax)

Business

I have worked in business for the past 25 years, with large companies ($100 million in sales) to small home based businesses ($50 K in sales) and all points in between. In public accounting, we speak to and work with all departments in the business being audited. We have to understand the department and what the company does and how they do it in order to be able to provide an accurate audit. In the Corporate Accounting Department, we provide a lot of support to all departments and divisions of the business. We are a valuable source of information and data mining. We again have the opportunity and pleasure of working with all different departments and gaining a full understanding of what the department does and how it is done. We cannot possibly accurately account for the business without having this understanding.

QuickBooks

I have converted two companies to QuickBooks and established QuickBooks as the accounting package for 3 different small businesses. I have been using QuickBooks on an active basis for accounting for businesses for the past 5 years. I taught QuickBooks for Hawaii Community College (course: Using Computers in Accounting) for 3 years. I am also an Intuit QuickBooks Certified User. I have a Digital Transcript of the certification from the administrator of the exam, Certiport, that I can upload, but have not been able to locate an area to upload files of this nature.

Sharp, Knowledgable, and patient Tutor

Dianna is so incredibly sharp and really understands Accounting. She is patient and has a wonderful way of explaining even the most difficult concepts. She uses real world examples to help make connections while using the "language" in the text to drive the message home. She is also extremely flexible with regards to work and school schedules. I wish I could use her for every class!
