About Al

I have tutored off and on for several years with all kinds of age groups and grade levels. As a former CPA, I have both instructed and tutored accounting at the college level. I have also tutored high school and junior high students. I believe that one of my strengths is taking complex ideas and translating them to a form that is more easily understood. I probably have the most experience teaching and tutoring math or accounting but I enjoy language teaching, personal finance, non-technical subjects more.

I have never met a stranger and I seek to build an immediate rapport with students. As a very active listener, I try to see things through the eyes of the student and am not averse to using different methods and tools to suit diverse learning styles. I really love teaching and live for the moment when I see the light come on in the eyes of someone who is trying to understand a concept or a method to solve problems. I enjoy instilling confidence in students who are unsure of themselves and am enthusiastic about encouraging people that they have what it takes to succeed.

Knowledgable, Excellent tutor!

Al taught me accounting concepts regarding LIFO and FIFO. His knowledge was extensive and he broke the material down to something I could easily understand. Al really helped me get a grip on the concepts!
