About Randy

Hello, my name is Randy R. and as you can see by my resume, I am a CPA. I have been teaching/tutoring/coaching accounting for many years. I live in the Portage Park area of Chicago and have clients all over the Chicago area. I am seeking accounting students and clients that need help and assistance with all levels of accounting including auditing, managerial/financial accounting, budgeting, forecasting, business modeling and organizational management, and preparation for their CPA license.

I approach students with kindness, patience, and understanding. I break information down into the simplest terms possible and give them helpful tips on how to remember and retain information. I have an optimistic and determined attitude at all times in every aspect of my life and especially when it comes to helping students.

I am an organizational management and financial consultant and I tutor because I enjoy helping my clients excel in their courses and having them understand and excel in their accounting and financial classes and business pursuits.

My Big "4" CPA accounting experience focused on auditing, individual taxation and on-site organizational management and profitability engagements. The Big 4 CPA experience was followed by joining a very large regional CPA office where we focused on auditing, write up work, organizational management engagements including profitability analysis, enhancement projects, and individual and company tax planning.

I have evaluated, trained and hired accounting and management personnel at all levels in many organizations across the country, including controllers and chief financial officers. I have extensive hands on experiences with many industries including software, database design/implementation, not for profit, banking, mortgage banking, real estate, residential/commercial building including land development, collections, and the securities industry. My consulting experience covers individuals and small business owners up to companies generating $100MM in annual sales.

I am an excellent tutor, teacher, coach and consultant. I will be happy to assist you in achieving your goals in any of your accounting and related courses.

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.

Accounting

I graduated with my BA degree in accounting Magna Cum Laude at the University of Puget Sound before attending Seattle University for my MBA studies. I was only one of three students from a class of 65 accounting majors to be hired by the big four international CPA accounting offices. Using my CPA certificate and acquired consulting talents, I have hired and trained all levels of accounting and bookkeeping personnel along with several controllers and chief financial officers for my clients over the years. I am an excellent teacher and coach specializing in CRM (client relationship management) software programs and all levels of training accounting, record keepers and finance personnel. Along with my CPA certification, I have held NASDQ 3, 7 and 63 series licenses allowing me to account for, trade and manage all types of securities, options and future contracts and instruments.
