About George

I have an in depth background in the field of accounting gained from within organizations of various sizes, organizational structures, and industries. I am a practicing CPA for a major public accounting firm. Additionally, my academics have revolved around the accounting and business fields from as early on as sophomore year of high school.

My goal is to provide guidance and assistance to my tutored in order to successfully complete the courses/lessons before them and educate them on the application of these concepts and theories across the world class organizations.

I’ve mentored colleagues, subordinates, and client personnel on career development planning, goal setting and, most importantly, setting up action steps for goal achievement.

my proficiency in excel and word is intermediate/advanced level and I’ve utilized these tools to perform highly complex analysis, presentations, planning, etc.

Aside from my academic background focus on these fields, I have more than 8 years of technical expertise and application of core concepts across very reputable companies.

I’m patient, encouraging, and flexible.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Accounting

I have an in depth background in the field of accounting gained from within organizations of various sizes, organizational structures, and industries. I am a practicing CPA for a major public accounting firm. Additionally, my academics have revolved around the accounting and business fields from as early on as sophomore year of high school. I’ve taken 40+ credit hours in higher education within the subject of accounting and as it relates to financial, managerial, strategic, operational, etc. fields.

I’ve been engaged on client assignments to implement accounting policies and procedures, as appropriate by GAAP and other regulatory requirements, and to train client staff members on respective matters; my successful transition of knowledge has provided my clients with significantly increased efficiencies, better results, and quicker turnaround times. I am a firm believer in conceptual thinking as opposed to memorization.

My goal is to provide guidance and assistance to my tutored in order to successfully complete the courses/lessons before them and educate them on the application of these concepts and theories across the world class organizations.

Business

I've been engaged on numerous assignments across various businesses and taken on many roles around the business functions, not limited to: system implementations/configurations, business process improvement, process documentation, auditing financials, etc.

It is critical for me to understand the different variables that impact businesses and operations such as taxes, insurance, payroll requirements, regulatory compliance, internal policy compliance etc.

I am a practicing CPA for a major public accounting firm. I've trained staff internally and client staff, externally, around business functions, regulations, operating activities, and economic effects as it relates to pertinent companies/industries. On occasion, I present organizations, after analyzing their specific companies, with their Risk Exposure as it relates to external factors and internal.

Career Development

Consulting is the nature of my line of work; I analyze internal staffs' skills and competencies in order to assign them to engagements. When I discard a person from an engagement due to their lack of competency/skill in a particular field, I usually notate the fact on their personal profiles and proceed with a goal plan at a future date on developing that aspect. In most scenarios, I've been able to develop them by training, mentoring, or assigning them to those types of engagements.

I personally graduated 5 years of college and received my CPA within 4 years. In order to do that, I had to plan out my career path and strategically choose the appropriate classes in order to meet my graduation date goal as well as obtain all of the necessary and valuable education that would make for a successful career. I've shared my methods with upcoming college students in similar situations and have recommended colleges and classes for them. They stay in touch with me and request evaluations on their progress all the time. I'm happy to do that, as it is not at all the easiest thing to pick up on, on ones' own!

Microsoft Excel

Excel is a tool I’ve been utilizing for 8+ years. It's an excellent utility for data analysis, organization, forecasting/budgeting/planning, summarizing, etc.

The use of excel has become second nature to me and I take pride upon improving a process or making it more efficient with the assistance of excel.

Within Excel, you have the capabilities reduce workloads significantly, using various functions, that would take days to perform manually. Raw Data can be converted into information so easily for analysis by using features such as pivot tables and functions. Additionally, Excel can format information to presentable deliverables which can be used for presentations and distribution of information.

I've taken advanced courses in Excel and, in turn, have taught staff of my clients how to use functions, pivot tables, and format within the tool.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft's word processor is a widely used tool across the business and academic fields. I've used the tool in both settings to compile reports and communications of many sorts, not limited to: academic research papers, book reports, articles, memos, resumes/CVs, process documents, etc.

The tool can be utilized to not only draft, but edit text as well for review purposes. There are many features, those that actually edit the text and those that provide commentary. I'm very familiar with word processor and configuring/formatting the appropriate deliverable for the scope.
