Bio

I've always had a passion for helping others. During college I spent my working hours in a variety of customer service positions. However, when I took on my first teaching job, I've realized my true passion stems from helping others achieve their utmost potential.

I've always had a passion for helping others. During college I spent my working hours in a variety of customer service positions. However, when I took on my first teaching job, I've realized my true passion stems from helping others achieve their utmost potential.

I began teaching the QuickBooks and Microsoft Excel courses at Computer Systems Institute in April 2015. Since then, I've received numerous compliments from both management and colleagues, of my ability to keep students engaged on the subject matter, mostly due to the energy I bring into each class session. I love teaching. My class size ranges from 20-30 students, but i make sure to give each student the one-on-one attention needed to maximize the learning experience.

As a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) you can “count” on me to help you understand the flow of financial information between the income statement and balance sheet year over year. My current experience as a Staff Accountant at a CPA firm allowed me the opportunity become a business partner and tax advisor to our clients. I am always happy to share my knowledge and passion in accounting with others.

Thank you Ala!

Reliable Tutor!

It was a pleasure to work with Mr. Khalil as my accounting tutor. He was reliable, understanding, and easy to follow. He has the teaching experience, accounting experience, and his CPA license. I wanted to work with someone who has conquered the CPA exam. Also, share their experience taking the exam and working in the accounting industry. Mr. Khalil has been very supportive with my accounting studies, and supportive in looking for accounting jobs. My understanding of accounting has improved significantly. If you are taking your first accounting course, have difficulties conquering the CPA exam, or have any questions related. I recommend taking Mr. Khalil to help.
