About Leo

I am a University of Pennsylvania graduate, a CPA, and a certified teacher in math and accounting. I have been tutoring since I was in high school, and teaching since I graduated from college. Currently, I am an adjunct professor at a community college teaching basic skills math and accounting.

My CPA license is in New Jersey, and I hold New Jersey and Pennsylvania high school teaching certificates. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a BA major in physics. After graduation, I taught high school physics in the Philadelphia public school system for nine years. Then I worked for a contractor as the office manager and bookkeeper, took accounting courses at night, formed a custom computer software programming company, and achieved the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) credential. In 1995, I returned to teaching at the college level and since 2002 have been teaching basic skills prealgebra, basic skills algebra, and financial and managerial accounting at a community college as an adjunct professor. One year ago, I joined the math tutoring lab at the college where I tutor in addition to teaching.

I am passionate about my teaching and tutoring, and my evaluations are excellent. My tutees and students tell me that I explain concepts in such a way as to make them easy to understand. I believe that I can help any student achieve success in prealgebra, algebra 1, and financial and managerial accounting. I am glad to offer my services in tutoring these subjects.
