About Douglas

I am a NYS licensed CPA and attorney. For many years I have worked in some of the top public accounting firms in NYC as a senior tax manager. Part of my job has been to teach staff various tax subjects so that they could perform better and the firm could function more efficiently. I enjoy teaching and watching the "light bulbs" go on when students learn.

I am an excellent teacher in accounting, tax and law, but am also very good with mathematics courses, in particular, algebra.

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.

Bar Exam

I am a licensed NY State attorney, having passed the NY State Bar exam. I have practiced law and have argued cases in court, so I am amply qualified to help students pass the bar exam.

Baseball

I played high school baseball at Fox Lane High School in Bedford, NY and then at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. I was offered a minor league contract by the California Angels , but a serious knee injury and then a serious elbow injury during my comeback prevented me from making baseball a career.

Basketball

In high school at Fox Lane High School I was All Westchester County in 1972. I was offered basketball scholarships at several universities after I graduated from high school. I decided to go to Wake Forest University where I was recruited to play baseball. After college I did work as an Assistant Basketball Coach at Fox Lane High School for 2 years.

QuickBooks

I have been a CPA for more than 25 years and have used Quickbooks extensively for many years in practice. Especially with small S Corps and partnerships and doing the tax returns for small businesses I have used QB to create the financial statements and prepare the tax returns from the income statement and balance sheet created through QB. I am very qualified to teach bookkeepers and accountants how to use QB.

Tax Preparation

I am a Certified Public Accountant in the state of NY and have been preparing and reviewing personal, partnership, S Corp, C Corp, trust and not for profit tax returns for many years.

Tennis

I was a club professional at Briarcliff Racquet Club in Briarcliff, NY, from 1981-1983. As a player, I have won numerous small tournaments. I have taught many group and private lessons over the years. I was also the head pro at Maplewood Tennis Club from 1982-1983 in the summers.
