About Jeff

I offer tutoring in Algebra I and II, Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint, all areas of Accounting and Tax Preparation. After having taught all mathematics courses at the high school level, I got my C.P.A. Certificate and worked as an Accounting Executive for some well-known companies. My background allows me to share my experience and real-world solutions with my students.

In addition to tutoring currently, I am doing some part-time accounting and working as a Master Tax Advisor for the largest national tax preparation firm. My educational background includes a mathematics major and an M.B.A. from a well-known university.

I tutor each student with a customized approach, to make sure that the student gets exactly the outcome he needs, including theoretical background, practical applications, problem-solving and test preparation if appropriate. My students are encouraged to demonstrate their learning in writing or via the computer.

I welcome all questions and make sure the student has plenty of time to ask questions and achieve full understanding and confidence in the subject.

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.

Tax Preparation

For about 30 years as a Corporate Controller and CPA, I gathered and prepared or reviewed business tax returns. In 2009, I took the H&R Block Basic Tax Course and passed with a good grade. I was then hired by H&R Block and have worked for them for four seasons, 2010 through 2013, preparing hundreds of tax returns. I also took 15 or more hours of tax courses each year. My current designation at H&R Block is Master Tax Advisor, which is the highest designation possible. I work with each of my clients so they completely understand the preparation of their taxes and so they can properly gather the needed data for their current and future tax returns.
