About Barbara

I have twenty years in the accounting/bookkeeping field and I am a Certified Payroll Specialist, Certified Professional Bookkeeper and Certified QuickBooks Advisor through the NACPB. My desire to teach math, personal finance, and other subjects comes from homeschooling my children (now teenagers) for 6+ years. My oldest daughter is now a proud Penn State student and has received a full scholarship! I have coached her in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, and College Algebra.

Besides tutoring academics, I also tutor college students in QuickBooks software and accounting.
I own a bookkeeping company, in which I assist: my own clients with their bookkeeping/accounting needs, CPA's with their client's books, and other bookkeepers who have bookkeeping needs/issues that they can't resolve on their own. I am knowledgeable in QuickBooks Desktop 1999-current (I have clients with all different versions!) and QuickBooks Online. I hail from SE Florida (although now a Penn resident) and have received my B.A. in Business Management from NSU.

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.

Algebra 1

I've been a homeschooling mom since 2005, but my daughters are older now (one is at Penn State on a full scholarship) and the other is a 9th grader who works pretty independently. I have been a WyzAnt tutor for approximately a year now and I also tutor through other sites. I also have my own bookkeeping company, in which I service my clients' bookkeeping needs.

Business

I have a BS in General Business. I have an AS in Management and a Certificate in Marketing. I belonged to Delta Epsilon Chi in College (DECA business clubs) and have studied Marketing, Salesmanship, Advertising and Management in college. I have also worked in the retail, service and not for profit industries as well.

Financial Accounting

I'm a certified bookkeeper for over twenty years. I am also certified as a payroll specialist and QuickBooks advisor through the NACPB. I own a small bookkeeping company and work with clients in different industries.

Managerial Accounting

I'm a certified bookkeeper for over twenty years. I am also certified as a payroll specialist and QuickBooks advisor through the NACPB. I own a small bookkeeping company and work with clients in different industries.

QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks 2010 and 2011 in my previous employment of 8 years. Prior to that, I worked in CPA offices, in which I have used QuickBooks 2001 through 2009. I have worked in the accounting and payroll field for over 20 years. I am a Certified Bookkeeper and Certified Payroll Specialist with the National Association of Certified Bookkeepers. Last year, I started my own small bookkeeping practice, in which I use QB online and QB 2015 with my clients.

Reading

I've been a homeschooling mom since 2005, but my daughters are older now (one is at Penn State on a full scholarship) and the other is a 9th grader who works pretty independently. I have been a WyzAnt tutor for approximately a year now.

Voice (Music)

I was a professional singer for over 20 years with a company called Sound Relations DJ's and Entertainers and was the lead singer in a few local bands. I had professional singing lessons in Miami for a year and a half during my late teen years.

I have always wanted to coach so I held a class for elementary school children teaching them breathing exercises, singing techniques, how to hear harmonies, microphone techniques, and so on. I would like to go back to coaching, since singing has always been a part of my life.

Barbara taught me the basic set up of QB. SHE was hands on explaining everything in laymen's terms but let me do the work would highly recommend her to anyone looking to understand QB in greater detail
