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.

Wealth of Resources

Brian has an incredible amount of knowledge of Managerial Accounting. In our first session he was able to get to understand credits and debits. We still have more work to do but his caring and patience makes him easy to work with. He is dedicated to helping you understand and supplies you with additional resources.

Knowledgeable and patient!

Managerial accounting. Cost/quantity variance in this first lesson. Very patient and helpful with questions. Knowledgeable in subject. Brian slowed down and went step by step explaining everything I needed to know along the way. Recommend.

Tara, 5 lessons with Brian

Knowledgeable

I needed help with my income tax return assignment. He was able to help. We had technical difficulties at the beginning. Which took away time. He was patient and did not charge me for the lag time. He's quick too. He explained things well and was not rude or used over the head language. I would recommend.

Best Accounting Tutor I’ve Had

Brian is not only an expert on the subject, but he also teaches very well and was perceptive to pick up on my points of confusion. I am taking managerial accounting for your information.

Seth, 4 lessons with Brian

Great tools given to my employees for them to use

Good comments about my website & he to review it some more; good tips for my 3 employees; he gave some on-line free tools for my employees to use on their own time; one employee will be buying a book that he suggested for grammar.

Nancy, 1 lesson with Brian

Concentrated & polite

Brian is very polite and was able to teach my daughter how to break down a formula and solve the problem. Brian also provided cheat sheets that can help her with other math problems.

Isabel, 1 lesson with Brian

Works well with my son

Brian does an excellent job explaining the concepts my son struggles with in Algebra. He also provides extra tools to help him on days when they don't meet.

Joseph, 9 lessons with Brian

knowledgeable and accommodating

Brian was very good and available when I needed him. He showed up near my location with notes and help me with a time-critical assignment. There was no way I would've been able to understand the lessons on my own in that short amount of time.

F, 2 lessons with Brian

Patient and knowledgeable

Brian helped me understand the lower of cost or net realizable value and why accountants use it. Also, a better understanding of LIFO and FIFO and average costing. Helped me understand the “why” which was really helpful!

Ashley, 3 lessons with Brian

ACT/SAT PREP

Brian is Very knowledgeable and patient. Has helped my son get a much better handle on his practice questions. He allows Jake the opportunity to demonstrate what he knows and steps in when appropriate to correct and/or explain with great patience. Brian has a mastery over every area covered so far in the practice questions.
