About Robert


Bio

I've been teaching privately for about 20 years now. While my focus used to be on teaching the guitar, I've broadened my scope and ventured out into teaching Excel, accounting (my profession) as well as general computer skills (which I utilize all the time.) Teaching is not everyone's cup of tea, but it's something that I really enjoy. It's very rewarding to equip someone else with the knowledge and the skills needed to move forward in the field he or she has chosen to pursue.

I've been teaching privately for about 20 years now. While my focus used to be on teaching the guitar, I've broadened my scope and ventured out into teaching Excel, accounting (my profession) as well as general computer skills (which I utilize all the time.) Teaching is not everyone's cup of tea, but it's something that I really enjoy. It's very rewarding to equip someone else with the knowledge and the skills needed to move forward in the field he or she has chosen to pursue.

I've been working as an accountant since 1996. Accounting caught my fancy back when I was in high school - I found the structure to be very appealing. Accounting also lends itself to utilizing the computer as a powerful tool. I thrive in Excel - the best spreadsheet software out there, and one that is widely used in the accounting world.

I started playing the guitar in 1992, and have studied under several different teachers and at two different music colleges since then. I've been actively involved in church music (praise and worship) and in playing fingerstyle guitar.

The aim of any skilled teacher (myself included) should be to make himself redundant. It's therefore my aim to equip you with the skills you need to learn new material without my assistance. While this is not a quick and easy project, it is nonetheless my goal. I look forward to working with you!

Financial Accounting,

Financial Accounting

My first job back in 1996 was as the bookkeeper for a retail store. I've held several other jobs since then and currently work as the accountant for a non-profit company in Fayetteville. I completed my Master's degree in accounting at UNCG in 2012 and am working toward my CPA qualification.
Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I'm an Excel junkie! I've been working with spreadsheets since the early 1990's, when I was introduced to the realm of "number processing" in a class that taught me "As Easy As", a freebie version of Lotus 1-2-3, one of the earliest pieces of spreadsheet software. Computers and software have advanced a long way since then, and Excel stands tall as the best of them all in the spreadsheet realm. I love it and I can help you love it too!
Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word

It's fair to say that the majority of those who use a computer have used Microsoft Word. While it definitely has room for improvement, it's pretty much the standard by which all competitors are measured. I've been using Word for 20+ years and there are many tricks I'd like to show you.

Computer

General Computer

I have used computers extensively since back when color monitors were unheard of. Computers are a fantastic tool for work and pleasure. I'd like to help you get more competent on yours.

Music

General Music,

General Music

I started learning the piano at a young age, but did not pursue the instrument very actively. I picked up the guitar at around age 14 and continue to play it to this day. I started teaching music at the age of 18 and have taught ever since. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in music from the California State University of Chico and furthered my studies at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro.
Guitar,

Guitar

I started playing the guitar in 1992 and started teaching in 1995. While I've played steel-string acoustic, nylon-string acoustic ('classical') and electric guitars, my preference has always leaned toward the steel-string acoustic. It's never too late to start! I've found my best students to be the older ones, so don't let age be a deciding factor. I have my B.A. in Music from California State University and an M.S. degree from the University of North Carolina.
Music Theory

Music Theory

Music theory has always delighted me. It's comparable to looking under the hood of a car and actually understanding what happens there! I have a B.A. degree in music and I've taught music privately since 1995. I'd love to help you understand it more and put it to good use!

Very Knowledgeable and so patient!

Robert is fantastic. I learned so much from him in such a short amount of time and he explains things in ways I can understand. I get overwhelmed at the site of numbers and tons of data in a spreadsheet. It doesn't help that my knowledge of Excel is so limited, so he even offers great ideas on how to utilize the data in useful ways. Looking forward to more sessions!

Great Session!

Robert worked with me on reviewing basic accounting concepts and answered specific questions I had regarding the best way to create certain types of journal entries. Robert also helped me understand the monthly close process and the steps that are involved in completion. Robert was super patient and sincerely interested in making sure my goals for the session were met. Thank you, Robert!!

Patient Tutor

Robert helped me with a financial budget tracking spreadsheet in Excel. He was very patient and understood what I needed. He explained to me many things that I did not know about tracking my finances in Excel. I will definitely work with him again.

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

I haven't been in the accounting learning space in quite some time. Robert helped to refresh my memory on accounting basics, which I will need to successfully complete my current and future accounting coursework and training. Robert's simplified approach to the subject made me comfortable and confident that I could successfully use apply this material in the classroom and in my professional life. Thank you for helping me out in a pinch!

Great tutor

Great sensei. Robert takes the time to ensure you understand the subject matter. This course has been difficult; however, Robert has made the topic make sense.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient!

Robert helped me with my financial accounting class. We were able to review the unit I was working on in class and he cleared up all questions. I sent him some problems from class ahead of time and we were able to work on those together as well. Overall very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions!
