I'm Lisha! I'm a licensed CPA with 10+ years client service experience and 1 year of professional tutoring experience. I have and MBA and B.S. in Accounting.

In its simplest form, my role as a CPA involves problem solving. In reality, that involves translating complex financial and tax accounting regulations to simpler and digestible material for the client and/or incoming staff. As such, I've spent the majority of my career marrying these two responsibilities - learning to quickly and effectively teach complex matters.

I utilized tutoring throughout my academic career as performance optimization. Whether the intention is to improve grades or increase understanding, I think particularly with accounting, there is a benefit to be gained by partnering.

My Ideal Student
I believe strongly we all learn differently. My strong skill set is being able to accommodate those learning differences and meet people where they're at. I am relentless about connecting with students in a meaningful way - sometimes together we learn how the student learns best, and they're able to utilize that to their advantage in future courses. That being said, I am fond of students who are taking ownership of their academic career and responsible for their learning. (See how that translates in my sessions below).

PARENTS: Generally, after our first point of contact, I maintain communication with the student directly.

CPA Exam Prep
Our sessions are tailored to meet your needs! We review key concepts and how they translate on the exam and tie into the AICPA Blueprint. We will practice multiple choice questions and break down task based simulations to solidify your understanding. I LOVE helping candidates prepare for the CPA exam!

Financial accounting (Principles and Intermediate)
I know several colleges currently utilize e-learning systems, such as Pearson's MyLab or McGraw Hill's Connect. I work with students to first introduce or reinforce the material for the chapter and then work though completing homework problem

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have always excelled in math. I was fortunate to have teachers who identified and nurtured this passion since 2nd grade. It allowed me to approach and succeed in math classes with great confidence. I passed AP Calculus and ultimately went on to take and complete Statistics in college. As I continued to perform well in high school, I had the opportunity work as a teacher’s assistant working with students in pre-algebra, Algebra I and II. In my sessions we focus on course topics, but also tips and tricks for success with test taking. The goal is to establish a foundation that we build upon throughout the semester so they approach new topics without reservation and are overall successful in their course.

I have lots of experience tutoring in Algebra courses. I successfully completed math fundamentals through college statistics and have been tutoring since I was in high school. In my professional career as a CPA, I'm constantly tasked with teaching complex ideas to new hires and interns, and teaching quickly. Aside from working towards technical proficiency, we will also focus on test taking strategies. I want my students to feel confident in their success!

Excellent tutor for income tax!

Thanks a lot for your tutoring Income tax Lisha! I learned a lot from you. I will reserve your another classes for next few weeks.

Lisha is a great and caring tutor. She is patient and takes the time to break down each problem for you.

Brittany, 30 lessons with Lisha

Late to lesson, overcharges, and insults student.

Lisha will show up late to lessons, overcharge students and insult students when they bring up the issue of overcharge. Lisha T. and I met for a lesson originally scheduled for 3 hours. However, she contacted me at the time the session was supposed to start to say that she wants to start late. I told her that I wanted the session to start at the scheduled time. However, she ignored my message and showed up at the lesson 1 hour late. After the lesson, she charged me for the full 3 hours, although we held the lesson for 2 hours only. During the lesson, I had asked that she send me a set of about a dozen questions in a question set she has, to me, using the remaining 1 hour. However, the next day she contacted me to say that she felt this was too much work, and she did not complete this. She sent me one question which she copied from her file into an Excel. She claimed that it took her 1 hour to do this, and charged me 100 USD for the full hour for her copying. She overcharged for 1 hour. The work that she did copying one question into an Excel file should take maximum 10 minutes. When I brought up the issue respectfully, she attacked me as being abrasive. She exemplifies horrible customer service and I am upset with the way she has overcharged and then insulted me. She will be late to a lesson with a student, overcharge a student and when they politely ask for a refund, she will attack the student as "being abrasive". This is unacceptable and reflects poorly on her and no one else.

Tutor responded:

Juliana, Thank you for the opportunity to partner with you through a portion of your journey in completing the CPA exam. I am always so grateful to work with students in accomplishing such a tremendous milestone. You indicated your dissatisfaction with me being untimely and overcharging you. According to my records that did not happen. As you aware, with you being in Japan, our sessions begin at 5:00am for me. On one occasion because of a minor hiccup with some new medication, I asked if you mind starting at 6:00 am. Also, as agreed to beforehand, you were charged for time incurred to pull together supplemental material. I believe your frustration lies with me not being able to provide you my login information to access a particular CPA exam prep course. As I communicated to you, this violates that company’s terms and conditions. I am very sorry for your frustration. I wish you all the best.

This CPA Tutor is Smarter Than Becker Review Course!

All jokes aside she is an knowledgeable tutor and has taken my studying and test taking skills to the next level! I'm glad I was able to find her as a tutor!!!!!Worth every penny!!!

Great for CPA review

When we first started we had some technical difficulties that had to be worked out on my end but once we got started everything went smoothly! She was very patient and understanding! She took the time to explain everything and ensured that I understood the reasoning behind it. I will continue to work with her! I know she will make this CPA journey much easier for me!
