About Michael

My name is Mike and I am interested in working as a tutor for accounting and related academic courses. I have tutored for three years in college, and also have much experience teaching in the business world, having worked as a CPA for the past 15 years. I have strong subject knowledge with accounting, Excel, and many business related courses, and I am very good at breaking down subject matters at a level that others can understand. To teach effectively, I go at the pace of whomever I am teaching and make sure that this person understands the concepts before we move forward.

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.

Finance

I have several years (~20) of experience as a CPA and I also have several years of experience teaching accounting and finance to students at the graduate and undergraduate level. I am very patient and go at whatever pace best enables my students to learn - their success is my success. Don't take my word for it - look at the recommendations I have received from students whom I have helped succeed!

Financial Accounting

I have tutored Financial Accounting in college (1994-1996) and as a professional since 2010. I have tutored dozens of students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Please see the recommendations that my students have written on my profile as their words are more important than mine.

Managerial Accounting

I have worked as a CPA for over 20 years and have been an active tutor for Financial and Managerial Accounting since 2010. Please see my profile and the recommendations my students have written, as their words are more important than mine.

Microsoft Excel

I have worked in Microsoft Excel on an almost daily basis for over 20 years. I am familiar with virtually all basic functions and several advanced functions such as VLookups and Pivot tables. I also have given presentations to groups on how to effectively use Excel. I can help any beginner to intermediate user improve his or her Excel skills.

SAT Math

I scored in the top 10 percentile on both the SAT and GMAT math. I am very strong in this subject and how to break it down and effectively teach at any level.

Excellent help for getting through the Financial Accounting beast!

I am in the Duke Fuqua EMBA program, and have had a very difficult transition into Financial Accounting. Mike has been wonderful helping me gain the understanding I needed to be successful - and survive what I consider the hardest class I have ever taken. His knowledge of accounting is fantastic, and I really feel like I have a strong understanding of the subject after spending several tutoring se
