About Benson

Hi! I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) working for one of the major banks in Boston. I graduated from Drexel University where I had the wonderful opportunity to be a tutor for introductory and intermediate accounting courses for two years. After graduating, I joined one of the big 4 accounting firms where I got to put my accounting coursework to practice by carrying out financial audits and obtaining my CPA license. I now work with an investment management bank where the accounting and finance fields intertwine.

I like to tutor because I enjoy seeing my students go through the "Aha! I get it!" moment. Accounting & Finance can at times seem obscure and filled with concepts that are not intuitive. Accounting is filled with standards that might at first not seem to make sense while Finance has computations that seem obscure. However, with the appropriate amount of time I believe that helping a student understand a few basic underlying concepts as well as the big picture can simplify building a strong base to tackle these two fields.

Please feel free to contact me to organize a time to meet for a lesson. I mostly tutor on weekends but can work with you to find a time during a weekday if need be.

I am a career changer with a background in teaching, and Benson was one of the best - he was kind, patient, and guided me to answers rather than giving them to me. He met me where I was at and really explained things in a accessible way. Will definitely ask him for help again if I get tripped up by any more topics while I'm studying for this darn exam!
