About Falana

I tutor in a way that meets the student's understanding. I don't follow any teaching method. I just explain and allow the student to demonstrate that they understand and can do the work. If they don't, I try to explain in a different way.

I have had a student from algebra through geometry. She did not understand how her teacher was explaining it to her or she would forget. We reviewed the summaries in the text book and worked through problems until she understood it to where she could explain what she was doing.

I have had success with middle school, high school and adult students.

I have 20 years work experience in accounting as an accountant and controller in various industries.
While completing my MBA, I was key person in our group who explained accounting concepts to those who did not work in accounting.

Also while completing my MBA, the online writing lab instructor confirmed that I have excellent writing skills which includes grammar.

Forever a student myself, I look forward to helping students become successful in courses they thought they would never get.

I am also looking for students of algebra and accounting who would be interested in small group tutoring on Saturday mornings.

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 over 20 years in accounting roles. I have tutored and taught accounting courses for the past two years. I understand that knowing the fundamentals of accounting can help with subsequent accounting courses, personal life, and in non-accounting professions.

Algebra 1

I attempt to tutor to the student by presenting it in a way that the student can receive it. I like teaching the fundamentals. They help the student in the math that follows.

Business

I have worked over 20 years as an accountant/Controller in small and large organizations. I have been a successful contributor to assist in improving costs and procedures.

Public Speaking

I teach at Everest College. I have made business presentations of financials to employees and managers. I held seminars on Debt-Free and Prosperous Living.

Wonderful tutor

We have been meeting with Falana now for about a month. She is a wonderful tutor and very patient with my daughter. Just in the short time my daughter has worked with her, I have noticed significant improvement in my daughter's confidence with math. Her grades have already improved. I would highly recommend Falana to anyone looking for a tutor.
