Bio

To help you meet your academic goals, I will help you to learn more effectively and more efficiently. I ask what-if questions to check for understanding and help you see the relationships between concepts. I include strategies for studying, taking tests, and coping with the stress that students encounter. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by phone or by email.

To help you meet your academic goals, I will help you to learn more effectively and more efficiently. I ask what-if questions to check for understanding and help you see the relationships between concepts. I include strategies for studying, taking tests, and coping with the stress that students encounter. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by phone or by email.

For math students, I will help you translate the English in word problems into mathematical expressions that can be solved. You will improve your ability to use formulas and to know which formula to use. As needed, I will show you how to use the graphing calculator, Excel or both.

For accounting and finance students, I will walk you through how data flows through the accounting records from transactions to financial statements, how to analyze transactions so you can correctly record them, and how to interpret and analyze financial statements. As needed, I will show you how to use the financial calculator, Excel or both.

I have a bachelor's degree in math and a master's degree in accounting. I hold a Texas Lifetime Teacher Certificate in Secondary Math (grades 6 -12). I taught high school math in DeSoto, TX and Denver, CO. I taught supplemental math classes in the Dallas ISD in grades 3-6 for the nonprofit agency, Project SEED.

I have tutored students from grade 4 through graduate business school. I have been a private tutor in North Texas and Denver as well as a tutor at a community college and a university.

I am a certified public accountant with over ten years experience in public, commercial, nonprofit, and government accounting. I have taught accounting at the college level and bookkeeping in a non-credit adult education program.
