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.


I am a Certified Public Accountant with over 20 years of experience in the industry.

I have expertise in the following areas:

The concepts and principles of:
-Preparing financial statements which include (A) The Balance Sheet,(B) Income Statement (C) Statement of Cash Flows (D) Statement of Stockholders Equity
-Accounting for leases - Capital vs Operating

This is a summary of my areas of expertise. All of these concepts and principles are based on the basic accounting equation:

Assets= Liabilities + Owners Equity.

The understanding and comprehension of this equation is fundamental to grasping the concepts and principles of accounting.

Algebra 2

The fundamental theorem of algebra states that every non-constant single-variable polynomial with complex coefficients has at least one complex root. This includes polynomials with real coefficients, since every real number is a complex number with zero imaginary part.

All concepts of algebra are based on that theorem. I can help you to understand that theorem thoroughly along with the following concepts:

• Numbers
• Exponents
• Order of Operations
• Variables and Constants
• Terms and Expressions
• Simplifying Expressions
• Equations
• Coordinate Systems
• Graphs/Coordinates
• Solving Linear Equations
• Ratios
• Percents
• Rates
• Distance/Rate/Time
• Equations of the Line and Graphs
• Inequalities and their Graphs
• Linear Systems of Equations
• Scientific Notation
• Exponential Functions
• Quadratic Equations
• Polynomials
Factoring Polynomials
• Radical Expressions
• Radical Equations
• Pythagorean Theorem
• Introduction to Conics (Cones)
• Circle - Conics
• Ellipse - Conics
Probability (unconditional)

Elementary Math

Does your child experience any of the following symptoms in learning math?

•"Blanking out" or "freezing up" on math tests.
•Stumped or confused with math concepts.
•Incomplete understanding of the language of math.
•Difficulty sequencing steps or the elements of a problem.
•Difficulties retrieving basic math facts from long-term memory.

If the answer was "Yes" to any of the above, I can help your child overcome the symptom(s) and become an above average math student.

Through my experiences, I have figured out how to tutor math in the fastest and most efficient way possible. In 8 or less hourly sessions, I will teach your child the skills needed to excel in math throughout their academic life and beyond.

I can teach the fundamentals of elementary math which consist of:

Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide Numbers
Basic Geometry
Basic Probability
Collect, Analyze & Organize Data
Coordinate Graphing
Data & Graphs
Expressions & Equations
Factors & Multiples
Fractions, Decimals, Percents
Odd/Even Numbers

•The Time Value of Money
•The Meaning and Measurement of Risk and Rates of Return
•Valuation of Stocks and Bonds
•The Cost of Capital
•Capital Budgeting: Techniques and Practice
•Short-Term Financing
•Debt Financing
•Equity Financing


Geometry is "the study of shapes." The primary shape that most of the concepts are centered around is the angle.

Every basic shape and concept involves the angle.

Along with the concept of angles, I can share my expertise and help you to understand the following concepts:

• Definitions/Axioms, Postulates
• Deductive Reasoning
• Angle Theorems
• Parallel Lines & Angle Theorems
• Triangle Theorems
• Proportional Lines in Triangles
• Parts of Similar Triangles
• Right Triangles
• Theorem of Pythagoras
Law of Sines
• Law of Cosines
• Parallelogram Theorems
• Rectangles, Squares, Rhombi

Knowledgeable and Professional — This was my first experience hiring a tutor for any subject, and Johnny made it worthwhile. During our brief conversation over the phone prior to our meeting, he assessed my needs and how he could best help me. When we met, he came prepared and even printed out documents to enhance our study time together. He knew the subject matter and taught with patience and clarity. I highly recommend Johnny ...
