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 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, and Series 3 Nasdaq licenses.

I presently perform organizational management, financial, accounting and Excel consulting engagements. I tutor because I enjoy helping accounting students/clients excel in their courses and understanding of accounting and financial markets at alll levels.

I started tutoring college students and individuals studying for their CPA examination when I was in Chicago on my organizational management and financial consulting practice. At that time, I was living in Seattle and had three major centers of business practice (Seattle where a majority of my family still lives; Chicago where our son lives and Baltimore where I had several clients). I expanded tutoring to Seattle before we moved to Chicago to be close to our son. I now tutor primarily in the Chicago area and consult across the country.

My Big "4" CPA accounting experience focused on auditing, individual taxations 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 returns and 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, securities/trading, NASDQ series 7, 3 and 63 licensing and more. My prior consulting experience covers individuals up to companies generating $50MM in annual sales.

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