Hello, my name is Brian. I am the founder and managing director of Dempsey & Company, PC. Dempsey & Company, PC is a certified public accounting firm dedicated to broadening and enhancing the financial knowledge of its clients, enabling each in the realization of their goals, through the provision of high quality, measurable accounting and advisory services, including a concentration in forensic accounting, fraud investigation, litigation consulting and valuation services. My professional background includes, among other things, providing audit and other assurance services at a Big 4 accounting firm for over six years. I also spent a portion of my career as a technical manager for the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) where I planned, developed and reviewed content, verified technical accuracy, and assisted in the production of the Uniform CPA examination.

I attended the University of Delaware where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Accounting and Minor in Economics. My honors and certifications include: Dean's List, University of Delaware; Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE); Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF), AICPA; Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV), AICPA; Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP), AICPA; Forensic Accounting Certificate, AIPCA; and IFRS Certificate, AICPA. My memberships include: AICPA; Forensic and Valuation Services Section, AICPA; Private Companies Practice Services Section, AICPA; ACFE; Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) and Philadelphia Area Chapter of the ACFE.

Although tutoring does bolster my curriculum vitae used to secure engagements in my primary line of work and provides a secondary source of income, I tutor primarily because it provides a sense of personal fulfillment to share knowledge and be part of the process where students of all ages and abilities achieve, and often even surpass, their goals. As a tutor I believe in only positive teaching methods, tailoring such methods to the needs of individual students and ensuring students have firm grasp of basic concepts which can then be applied to solve the even most complex problems. I strive to be patient, yet effective, and professional, yet friendly and relaxed. I also consider myself to be very flexible with scheduling due to autonomous nature of my primary work.

Very knowledgeable

He is really great at helping me understand concepts and explains it more personally than my teachers! Definitely worth the one on one time, will be using him again!

Helpful Tutoring

Brian is helping my son with his accounting class. Noah has reported that Brian has identified his weak spots in understanding the material and identified a plan to help him be successful in getting a satisfactory grade in the class.

First lesson with Brian

I am the parent of the student being tutored by Brian, so I can't speak to the specifics of the session; however, my son said that Brian was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what he had not understood to date and how to move forward to the next session.

Very knowledgeable, friendly, and focused!!

Great job! Although we got started a little later than expected, I was very much enlightened by my session and finally felt I would be able to move forward with my overall task, which prior to my session was extremely daunting. The tutor was patient and focused. Even though I struggled with relaying my issues with learning and using the personal financial software, he was totally able not only to understand my problems, but also provide viable solutions. His help was invaluable and I totally expect to have a few more sessions in the near future! Thanks for providing such a great service!

Non-threatening, User-friendly

He gets it and is able to explain in a non-threatening, user-friendly way. I'm so happy I have him on my team. This course is brutal. People at my school have dropped this course the same day they start because of the complex information that has to be processed.

Very Helpful!

Brian explains concepts in a way that is very clear and helpful. He is patient and very knowledgeable in accounting. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Great, Patient Teacher

Our small business needed to update the version of QuickBooks we were using, so we hired Brian. He came to us which was very helpful, and worked patiently with our staff to get updated. After he left, my staff told me that was money well spent. We strongly recommend him.

Great tutor

Brian is a great tutor. I had no previous experience of any kind in accounting and he helped me learn the material very quickly for my graduate school class. He is patient and goes at my pace and is very knowledgeable. He has really flexible hours and even was able to arrange tutoring sessions on short notice. I highly recommend Brian as a tutor for all ages.

Great Tutor

Brian is a great tutor. He worked with my son on his college accounting course, which was a difficult course for my son. Brian identified his weaknesses and helped him develop strategies to overcome them, resulting in the desired grade. We've already hired him back for Accounting 2!
