My name is Tommy and I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I have been a CPA for almost 35 years. I worked 30 years for the State of Michigan. For the majority of those years I was the Chief of Internal Audit for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. My years of practical application of accounting concepts have allowed me to gain a great understanding of the accounting profession and the knowledge of how to breakdown accounting concepts into everyday language for lay persons to understand. I have been tutoring students in accounting for several years with great success. I have also taught accounting at the community college level. I consider myself an expert in the fundamental principles of accounting.

My philosophy is to get my students to understand the concepts and provide them with everyday scenarios to see how it relates to what they do or encounter on a daily basis. Once the student can relate to the concept the numbers part of accounting is easy. I really enjoy working with students and seeing them understand and succeed. I am confident that I can improve a students understanding of the subject matter, improve their GPA and make this an enjoyable experience.

My years of practical application in the work world coupled with my years of tutoring experience gives me a unique perspective for what a student should know and focus on relative to the accounting concepts and the area of business and/or accounting they are pursuing.

I am very personable and I love to teach and tutor accounting. I guarantee I will make your accounting academic experience better than you could have ever imagined. Contact me and lets get started on your road to success in accounting!

Deserves the highest praise

Tommy was fantastic, if it wasn't for him I would've failed accounting. I went from a D student in accounting to a B- student all because of Tommy's willingness to listen, walk through problems, and put focus on struggle areas. Our review sessions tended to be last minute due to my problematic schedule and yet he was still able to accomodate. He is also extremely efficient and in a two hour session we were able to cover multiple chapters and give me a clear and concise understanding of what they were about. 100% worth the money, super charismatic guy, and is good at making you feel comfortable.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I had several lessons with Tommy in preparation for my financial accounting exam which I passed with flying colors. Tommy was always patient and explained in great details some accounting concepts that I had trouble with. We went over many problems and Tommy always had a solution. I will have more accounting courses in my studies and I hope to continue taking tutoring lessons with Tommy. Thank you for all your help.

Tommy may be the best Tutor on Wyzant for Financial Accounting.

To begin with, I am a graduate student at a prestigious university here in the United States. I have no prior accounting background and before taking this Financial Accounting course I am in now, I had never taken any accounting course before. After not performing as well as I would have hoped on the midterm exam, I specifically sought out Tommy to help me improve my score on my final exam so that I would have the greatest chance to get an A in the course. After working with Tommy, my score on the final exam was over 30% higher than the score on my midterm exam and although they have not released the overall course grades, my score on the final exam was higher than most in the class and I am eligible for the A I was striving for. Long Story Short. Tommy is extremely knowledgeable and may be the best Tutor on Wyzant for accounting. Thank you so much Tommy. Really not sure if I could have done this without you. Respectfully, Peter

Fantastic Tutor!

I can’t say enough good things about Tommy. I started lessons with him last semester in financial accounting. Before I worked with him, I was struggling with the concepts and did poorly on my first exam. After only a few lessons with Tommy, I improved so much. He breaks concepts down in a very approachable way and is more than happy to re-explain/clarify problems. I loved working with him so much in financial accounting that I also decided to work with him this semester in managerial accounting. He has extensive knowledge and experience with accounting, and more importantly, is an incredibly kind and personable tutor. Would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone struggling with accounting!

A wonderful tutor

Tommy tutored me throughout the semester with all my accounting lectures, helping explain concepts and breaking down how to solve problems effectively and thoroughly. He is very personable, a pleasure to learn from, and a remarkable teacher. If you're like me and numbers are a challenge, do not hesitate to reach out for his help, can't say enough good things about Tommy!

Absolute life saver!

I will recommend Tommy a million times over to anyone who is struggling with understanding accounting! I came to Tommy with a kind of difficult case. This was my third attempt at accounting and after a rough semester of attendance it looked like I wasn’t going to get the grade I needed to stay in my major, again. My cumulative final was going to be my Hail Mary pass, but I had honestly no idea where to start as I just had a general idea of accounting. In 5 sessions Tommy got me up to speed and confident in almost all concepts of accounting! I passed my final exam with one of the higher grades in the class AND got the grade I needed in the class! I am so so thankful for Tommy, he is understanding and efficient in his teaching methods and really makes it easy to comprehend accounting! And he is so nice and makes an effort to be flexible and work with your schedule. If you want to get a great grade in your accounting class, tutoring with him is the way to go!
