I have nine years of teaching experience as a accounting professor teaching courses in Principles of Financial and Managerial Accounting, Accounting Information Systems, Statistical Methods in Forensic Accounting and Auditing (i.e., data analytics), fraud examination, and corporate governance. My favorite parts of teaching are coming up with new active learning activities, working with students one-on-one, and facilitating small group discussions/activities. The best compliments I get are from students who say things like “even though this class was a lot of work, it was the best (most useful) class I’ve taken and I learned so much”.

Before finding my love of teaching and entering academia, I was a practicing Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner. I have more than 6 years experience most recently as a manager at KPMG in their Forensic group where I focused on proactive forensic data analytics primarily for internal and external audit clients. The best part of those jobs was training and mentoring newer staff.

In addition to the accounting-related subjects above, I tutor college students for the GMAT, focusing on test taking strategies as well as content. I also tutor students in calculus, algebra, and statistics using the knowledge I’ve gained in college and while obtaining my PhD.

My teaching methods tend to have a hands-on and practical approach and use tools such as Microsoft Excel and Access as well as specialty software like Caseware IDEA. Having taught students from a variety of backgrounds, including ESL and first generation college students I know the value of scaffolding the materials so that the underlying base knowledge is solid before building up higher level skills. In addition to lots of practice problems, I believe teaching not only the “how” but also the “why” of topics is essential in getting students buy in and in getting them to actually learn rather than memorizing then purging the information.

I look forward to getting to know you and being one stepping stone in your journey to being the amazing individual I know you are capable of being. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, please contact me. I am very responsive and will typically respond the same day or early the following day.

I have been a professor of accounting for 9 years. I have taught a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate-level courses, including principles of financial accounting. Teaching is my passion and I particularly look very working one on one with students and coming up with unique ways and examples for students. Before I was a professor I worked as a financial statement auditor and forensic accountant.
