About Jay

I wanted to be an accountant when I was 12 years old. I have worked in public, non-profit, for profit, and public school as accounting manager, controller, CFO, and business manager. While living in AZ, I taught accounting and budgeting at the graduate and under graduate levels. I do not consider myself a teacher; rather I love to share my passion for accounting to others as well as my experiences in a variety of settings. After retiring, I have spent the last five years preparing income taxes.

I have use QuickBooks for over 10 years, from the early computer software to the on-line versions.

I started preparing income taxes in 1969 when the forms were filled out manually. I have used several different software packages, and have worked the last five tax seasons. I started working in a CPA firm, and have worked in manufacturing, non-profit (including controller for the New Mexico State Fair) as accounting manager, controller, and CFO. I developed an accounting software package to be used by NJ public schools.

I have a great deal of experience and passion for accounting and would love to help you understand accounting and excel in your course work. It does not matter if you are seeking an accounting career or taking a course for basic understanding, I can help you reach your goal.

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.

Accounting

I have an AA in accounting and business administration, BS in finance and accounting, and MS in secondary school administration. I also taught for University of Phoenix in AZ for four years.

QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks for over ten years. I started with single user version on a PC and moved through their different versions to their multi-user internet version. I have used QuickBooks to generate charts of accounts for non profits and for profits as well as process payroll.

Tax Preparation

I completed my first manual tax return in 1969. Once you have completed a process manually you have the Intimate knowledge that cannot fully appreciated when taught using a software package. I have prepared income taxes for Jackson Hewitt for six years as preparer, lead preparer, and office manager.
