About Jon

After retiring from over 30 years in the Accounting and Tax businesses, I have wanted to share my knowledge base with those who are struggling with the concepts of business. I have successfully taught for American International University, Holyoke Community College and for Bay Path University. I enjoy the one on one interaction with students and give my lesson plans a light feel to them so the student can have fun with it. After all, we are dealing with some pretty dry subjects. The student will feel engaged with my style of flexible instruction and will certainly have a newfound appreciation for the subjects at hand. Lets get together and have some learning fun!

I have used Microsoft products ever since their inception and have developed applications for Excel for my clients to use. I have used a lot of the more sophisticated functions such as Pivot Tables, Statistical functions and graphing.

I have run several of my own businesses and have worked at various levels of some of America's largest companies such as General Electric and MassMutual. I have taught at the collegiate level and on the professional level. I have run tax seminars and presented to management ideas for implementation. I am a trained Accountant, Controller, Finance Manager, Tax Director and CEO.

You will learn in a relaxed and interesting manner the subject areas that I am passionate about as well as having some of the enthusiasm I will share with you about these areas. Most importantly, you will get real life experiences on how these concepts are applied which will make you more marketable for a job or for promotion.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Accounting

I have worked for large companys such as GE and MassMutual. I consult regularly with small and new companies to help them improve their profitabilty

American History

I am a US History nut! I am particularly fascinated by World War II and am currently writing a book about the Dirigible USS Akron.

Business

I have managed and started several of my own businesses as well as worked for some major corporations which gives me a unique perspective on how to approach and solve business problems. I have an MBA in Finance from Western New England University and have taught at the collegiate level for American International University, Holyoke community and Bay Path University. The subject areas of Tax, Accounting and general business are my focal points.

Finance

I have taught at the college level in this subject area. My MBA in in finance. I try to make my classes fun and interesting.

Marketing

When one owns their own business, it is important to get customers in the door. That is what marketing is all about. I have a great deal of experience in that area from site selection for your store to what best methods to reach out to potential customers. I have used the internet, direct mail and media advertising. I have analyzed traffic patterns as well as market need, competition and pricing. I have taught my employees hoe to market my company as well as themselves. Backing up all of this is a Bachelors degree from Bentley University as well as an MBA from Western New England University.

Microsoft Excel

I am an everyday user of Excel. I appreciate its ability to make us all more efficient. It is a great tool to help with those number crunching activities that some of us are challenged by.

Tax Preparation

I have taught many tax classes for the 3 major tax franchises. I have over 30 years experience in the industry from the preparation of personal income tax to corporation taxes. I have even been a tax auditor for the state of Massachusetts, so I have worked both sides of the fence. Teaching taxes can be especially challenging since there are a myriad of rules and laws to follow, some contradicting. This is where the fun comes in: creating an understandable solution to an issue everyone has- taxes.
