About Stephen


Bio

My name is Stephen D., and I would like to be your accounting, finance and math tutor and mentor. As the son of military parents, I developed a strong desire to achieve very lofty goals both in school and in business. After being recruited to play ice hockey at a small liberal arts school, I graduated with honors from New England College (NEC) with a dual major in Math and Accounting and went on to complete most of an MBA from Denver University (DU) majoring in Finance and Economics and then...

My name is Stephen D., and I would like to be your accounting, finance and math tutor and mentor. As the son of military parents, I developed a strong desire to achieve very lofty goals both in school and in business. After being recruited to play ice hockey at a small liberal arts school, I graduated with honors from New England College (NEC) with a dual major in Math and Accounting and went on to complete most of an MBA from Denver University (DU) majoring in Finance and Economics and then finally completed a Master of Science Degree at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). After graduating from NEC, I studied and passed all parts of both the CPA and CMA exams. I utilized my certifications and education along with hard work to become CFO or 6 entities and held multiple executive positions at 2 public companies.
I believe in developing consistency and hard work focused on achieving specific goals that you set for your future. My role is to help you learn the skills required while motivating you to work hard and do your best and to encourage you to set your expectations and goals even higher. I believe in the following “Crave the outcome so much that the hard work is irrelevant”. In both accounting and math, once you learn the basic principles, proficiency requires successful repetition to develop the confidence required to succeed at exams and more importantly to be able to use any critical learned skills in your chosen career.
I want to use my financial and math skills to assist you the student in improving every day. I am easily reached and will respond promptly to all requests. Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.
