John Carrol University (Accounting)
certified public accountant (CPA) (Graduate Coursework)
Military Training (Other)
I have tutored two of my three sons and other various students from different educational backgrounds at both the undergraduate and graduate school levels during the past five years. In addition, I've instructed and trained new employees at my firm for 20+ years.
My work experience included being a chief financial officer of an public corporation for over twenty-five years and previously a corporate controller. I was involved in training young accountants on the process from journal entries and sub ledgers to financial statement report preparation.
I have experience in the securities, real estate, hotel and restaurants and light manufacturing industries. I also have bankruptcy experience and have worked with numerous attorneys.
I am a CPA with a vast knowledge in both financial and managerial accounting along with Finance. I can (and have) tutor both subjects equally as well. I enjoy sharing my extensive knowledge with others and look forward to getting students where they need to be grade and knowledge-wise. I have no doubt in my mind that I can do this because it's been my job for 20+ years. I work with my students to save time and money via email, text, document share and other methods. I can work remotely just as easily as in person. Location and time is not an issue within reason. We'll make it work.

Melvin helped me complete my financial accounting credit at SMU and brought my grades up from D's to B's. He is flexible, helpful, patient, and wants to see you succeed. Please give him a call if you need help with accounting homework, test prep, or clarification on material as he will be happy to help.
Melvin is a great tutor. I have had two lessons with him and my grades are already improving. He is helping me with my graduate level financial accounting course. I highly recommend him.
Mel helped me prepare for my college level accounting course through the summer! I am very confident approaching this class this upcoming fall.
Many Thanks for helping my son under a pressure situation. Melvin was able to help him with his college level accounting concepts, taking him to a fundamentally different level of understanding.
Very thankful I found Melvin. He would sit with me for 6+ hours and teach me accounting. He went at my pace & explained every step. If I ever need accounting tutoring in the future, I will be calling Melvin!
Melvin is friendly, patient, and helps to simplify complicated accounting concepts. He goes above and beyond to make sure I really understand the material. Would definitely recommend!
Went over financial accounting concepts. Mel did a great job not just going over the problem, but helping me understand the actual concepts behind them.
I can't say enough nice things about Melvin. He's been patient and helpful. I don't have a business background and I'm taking Financial Accounting for my MBA. I've been a bit lost once we got past basic balance sheets but Melvin simplifies things and makes them easy to grasp.
After taking the class several times, I found that financial accounting was not my specialty and that I needed a tutor. I found Melvin through the WyzAnt website and ultimately received and A minus in the class. He genuinely cared that I earn that grade with a little extra help and guidance. He was very effective in teaching things from a different prospective and ensuring that I comprehended all the material, including the picky nuances! I couldn't thank him enough for his help.
Helped a ton. Very knowledgeable and makes the material easy to understand. Money well spent and I will use him again.
I enjoyed meeting with Mel. He was very patient with me and specifically identified a problem in my assignment that I missed and guided me to a clearly consistent answer so that if I am asked a question regarding that problem I would have no problem answering.
I got Melvin to help me with my accounting classes this summer, and even though I've only used his services once I can truly say that he knows his stuff. I can't wait to get help from him again, and would recommend him to anyone taking accounting.
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.
I can assist with all levels of accounting
I have had extensive experience in finance in my professional career as a chief financial officer.
I am a certified public accountant and have been an accounting executive for over forty years. As a chief financial officer of both private and public companies, I was responsible for the preparation of the federal, state and local tax returns. I also have experience in the preparation of partnership tax returns and related partners' Forms K-1. I have prepared a number of personal Form 1040 returns over the years.
