I have been a public accountant for over 30 years. My focus has been in financial accounting and taxation. I am also experienced in setting up automated accounting systems. I currently work with Quickbooks. I am a QB Pro Advisor, through this program I am able to stay current with Quickbooks products. I have also been an adjunct professor of accounting at a number of local colleges in Chicago. My expertise is in Financial Accounting and Taxation. I have taught Cost and Managerial Accounting as well.

Teaching is my first love, I may sound arrogant, but I am able to breakdown complex concepts and explain them to others. My favorite teaching style can be described as Socratic. I break subjects down into parts, and answer questions with very specific questions. My goal is to teach the material so it may be utilized in future studies. I try to leave my students with tools to create new knowledge instead of just memorizing material. The study of Accounting is cumulative, everything learned in the past is fair game in the future.

Don't worry, before I choose my teaching method, I listen very carefully to what my students are telling me. I can usually hone in on what is really bothering them. From there I develop my teaching method.

As a public accountant I have learned that it is very important to discover my clients interests. Once we connect via our interests, we are able to connect in solving business problems. The same is true with teaching.

Finally, as I mentioned above I try to connect through common interests. In addition to accounting I have a masters degree from the Loyola University School of Law in Chicago. I am a licensed EMT-B (Illinois) and I am a certified CPR instructor for the American Heart Association. I am trying to teach myself how to fly remote control helicopters and I have a great family.

I am not boring. When you are considering a tutor please think of me.

Thank you.

QuickBooks

QuickBooks

I have been using QuickBooks in my own CPA practice for 25 years. I have a great deal of experience with program installation, company setup and training clients in the use of QuickBooks. I am a member of the Intuit Quickbooks Pro Advisor Program. As a CPA my training is infused with accounting concepts and customization of company financial statements. I have found that training sessions should be limited to a maximum of two hours. Anything more creates mind drift. I understand the IT side and the accounting side, still a unique combination of skills.

Great at QuickBooks and Taxes

Really took the time to answer all my questions. I had questions on budgeting, finance, categories, audits with IRS. You name it, Abe knows about it. Would highly recommend Abe for all things related to Taxes!

Vin, 5 lessons with Abraham H

Best Tutor for Graduate Level, Financial Accounting

Abe was the best tutor/teacher who knew how to explain hard concepts, and apply them to real life case studies. He was very patient, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. Not to mention he was very flexible with his time and very accommodating. I would recommend Abe to any student who wants to master accounting. Hands down the best choice I made when searching for an accounting tutor. Thanks, Abe!

Lindsay, 12 lessons with Abraham H

Financial Accounting class at College of Lake County

Abraham helped me with the subject matter and taught me how to better break down the questions to answer them correctly. He also shared a neat way of knowing how debits and credits affect the financial statements. He is very knowledgeable and can assess the students needs very quickly.

Karen, 8 lessons with Abraham H

Super knowledgeable, warm and supportive, helped me to better understand the program conceptually by giving the big picture as well as the detail.

I learned a lot about invoicing, receiving payments and correcting errors. I see how to send statements for payments that are in arrears, I am calling Abraham to set up another session today!!!

Patricia , 2 lessons with Abraham H

Really patient and nice

Abraham is really patient and nice, and is willing to explain accounting concepts in a uniquely simple way. Really helpful!

Charles , 1 lesson with Abraham H

Engaging and encouraging tutor!

It's great to have a tutor that clearly enjoys what they do and adjusts their approach to your level. Abe is very knowledgeable about both tax preparation and Quickbooks, so it was great to have both sides of my financial management questions answered. He was patient with my general disorganization and made a difficult subject for me more fun.

Steve, 1 lesson with Abraham H

He took on my challenge to make me love accounting and...

I think he may succeed. I really like Abe's approach and how he's actually teaching this material to high school and college students. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with my new accounting Yoda!

Gary, 3 lessons with Abraham H

Very Knowledgeable and patient.

Abe reminded me of the basic concepts of accounting to help me understand what I thought was a complicated accounting topic. He was very patient, he listened and responded to all of my questions. Thank you Abe!

Tina, 2 lessons with Abraham H

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Very knowledgeable and very patient tutor. He guides you to come up with the answers, rather than just simply giving you the answers. Was on time and very reasonably priced.

MIchael, 3 lessons with Abraham H

Life saver!!

Abe was wonderful to work with. I prepare tax returns and was stuck on several issues and he helped me with such patience and I learned a lot along the way. Will be my weekly resource all things tax related. It was also a bonus that he is a current practice that as well!
