About Mike

I am knowledgeable about financial and management accounting, with more than 15 years of accounting experience with a major corporation. I hold degrees in journalism (undergrad) and business (graduate) from the University of South Carolina, and passed Certificate Management Account (CMA) exam on first attempt. I also completed training for certification from College for Financial Planning.

I enjoy showing others accounting concepts and how to solve accounting problems. I have a life-long interest in accounting and finance matters, and have worked many years at different levels in accounting.

Also, I am experienced in English, reading and writing matters. I am a former newspaper reporter and copy-editor, having worked at daily newspapers in South Carolina and Florida.

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.

English

I am an avid reader, which also allows me to observe use of the English language by expert users such as novelists.

Financial Accounting

I hold a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of South Carolina, with 3.8 GPA.

I recently retired after about 20 years of work as a financial analyst/accounting manager with State Media Co., a newspaper and digital information company.

Much of my work concentrated on cost/managerial accounting.

Grammar

I am a former newspaper copy editor.

Managerial Accounting

I hold a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of South Carolina, with 3.8 GPA.

I recently retired after about 20 years of work as a financial analyst/accounting manager with State Media Co., a newspaper and digital information company.

Much of my work concentrated on cost/managerial accounting.

Proofreading

I have worked at daily newspapers proofreading for spelling and editing grammar mistakes.

Reading

I received my undergraduate degree in news-editorial journalism and worked for many years in reporting and copyediting functions at daily newspapers. Reporters also generally read a lot of material, in an effort to boil down what is needed as background for stories.

SAT Reading

I am an avid reader and have completed self-guided courses on speed reading, which help in identifying key elements of reading matter.

SAT Writing

I have a BA degree in journalism from the University of South Carolina.

Vocabulary

I read widely and developed a broad vocabulary.

Writing

I worked for many years in reporting. Reporting for a newspaper requires the ability to write concisely and with clarity. It also requires the ability to understand fundamental information the reader may want to know.
