Theresa did a great job in explaining to me the auditing concepts to in and around an engagement to a non-auditor. In addition to explaining the concepts, Theresa took the time to talk about her experiences in an auditing engagement and how the foundation of the principles spoken about in the text are applied in real life. Those aspects of Theresa's knowledge about the subject matter helped me raise my Audit score on the Uniform CPA exam by 19 points!!! Theresa knows the subject matter and can relate it in a manner that easy to understand. I would recommend Theresa for anyone who needs help with taking the Uniform CPA exam.
Gerald was a joy to work with as he came prepared with exactly what he wanted to cover and did exactly what I told him to do to successfully prepare to pass the Audit section of the exam. He was clearly serious about learning the material and had the right respect for the exam and was committed to putting in the hard work necessary to pass this challenging part of the exam. As someone who passed all four parts of the CPA exam in one week, I know exactly what it takes to prepare for and pass this exam. It starts with having the right respect for the exam which has been deemed more difficult than the bar exam by candidates who have sat for both.
Theresa was able to solve a couple of advanced financial reporting issues my team was struggling with like a real pro. Theresa demonstrated her expert understanding of the principles of accounting and financial reporting, and how to correctly apply the principles, and related standards, to solve our problem. Theresa was able to point to appropriate authoritative literature in further support of the correct answer. I was able to convince the team and client of the correct reporting treatment with confidence as a result of Theresa's expertise with the equivalent of a white paper presentation. I wish we had more professionals like Theresa in our profession in both public accounting and industry, especially in serving SEC registrant engagements. Theresa is an excellent CPA as well as an excellent tutor and I highly recommend her!
Thank you Lynn. Even CPAs can struggle with determining with confidence the appropriate accounting, or reporting, treatment of a particular issue, especially when the situation is unique, and in need of a third party to provide an objective opinion. Lynn was smart to reach out for help to ensure she had the right answer. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Lynn is proof you do not have to be a student to benefit from a WyzAnt tutor. It was a real treat to assist Lynn.
Theresa was both cordial and professional in our conversation and session. Theresa effectively listened to my expressed concerns of my budget constraints as well as my expressed accounting and financial reporting issues I needed addressed in our first session. Theresa was very respectful of our time together and efficiently covered the issues I wanted addressed to my satisfaction. Thanks to Theresa's clear expertise in accounting and financial reporting and ability to explain complex issues in simple terms, I was able to understand how to handle these issues and impress my partner and manager in demonstrating the appropriate treatment of the accounting and reporting issues we were needing to address on an engagement. I will definitely use Theresa's services again.
Thank you Tee for the kind words. Tee was also respectful and kind. I wish I had more clients like Tee. Tee definitely had the ability to comprehend my explanations for the appropriate accounting and reporting treatment of the complex issues Tee brought to my attention. My 15+ years of accounting and financial reporting experience always seems to make a difference and I was glad to be of assistance to Tee. I look forward to working with Tee again.
I notified Teresa ahead of time that I was going to be a few minutes late given that I was meeting at her workplace. She complaint notoriously about my tardiness and lectured me on the importance of "good habits" because I was 10 minutes late.
During our meeting, we completed only 1 and 1/2 problems .... yes, one and a half problems. That is of course, in an entire 2 hour span of time. Often, Teresa digressed from the topic at hand and could not demonstrate the material in a straightforward nor concise manner. The result was a complete and utter waste of time.
Nevertheless, I thought I would give it another chance because that's sometimes how 1st meetings go, a little bit slower than normal. Perhaps, I did not communicate my expectations clearly enough. So, onto the 2nd meeting. This time, I was very upfront about my expectations and what I wanted. Accordingly, I said you need to actually to write out the problem from start to finish, and do just that, no shortcuts, no simply talking about what to do, just do it.
Sadly, my words landed on deaf ears. I asked repeatedly for Teresa to write the problem out, and when attempted to finally do so, any progress came to a halt as she arrived at the conclusion that the material and its answer key I had brought was incorrect. Teresa wasted more time arguing the validity of the material, but I took up considering her assertion nonetheless to be fair.
After checking with multiples sources, I verified that the material and answers I supplied were correct. With that, I decided to go with another tutor, and I am happy I did so. Not only was he able to illustrate the ins and outs of what I needed to know, we were able to get done in an hour what Teresa, and I couldn't get done in 3.
On a side note, I have never met a tutor who clock watches so closely as to charge by the exact minute given Teresa's inefficiency. At the end of the day, I only regret that good money was squandered on 3 hours of time I can never get back.
Christopher, the student with the error ridden unfair and false comments above, demonstrated himself to be one who did not want to do the work to learn and one who does not have the natural ability to comprehend certain accounting topics and issues. After confessing he has been in multiple investment internships and having to continue to search for and interview for a new internship, he asked me to help him prepare for such an interview. He suggested this next interview would require he be able to answer specific questions which would demonstrate his understanding of accounting for financial information, how the basic financial statements work together, and what they represent. When I suggested he secure and study basic accounting material outside of our sessions, based on my observations of his lack of understanding of basic accounting, so we could move at a faster pace and have more effective meetings going forward, and when I further asked him to bring in some 10-K's for us to use in our sessions to demonstrate how to understand and analyze financial information, he bailed before our next session, proving my observation during our sessions to be correct in that he did not want to exert any effort to learn the material.
Our time together was spent with me providing Chris with a few tips on successful interviewing, but mainly attempting to help him understand how accounting affects the financials and how the three basic financial statements work together, just as he requested, which required more time because of Chris' clear lack of demonstrated understanding of accounting and financial reporting basics. Given Chris' demonstrated lack of ability, asserted multiple past internships, and clear lack of effective communications per his own written comments above which was written poorly, with false information, bad grammar and misspellings to include my name, one has to question the motives and merits of Chris' feedback and I have to question his chosen career path.
What resources? If Chris can't specify what resources he reached out to, it can't be deemed credible. What did Chris show them versus me? Again, not credible. I have over 1000 hours and too many 5 stars and positive written feedback for Chris's comments to be given any merit. If there is really another tutor, HE is just telling Chris what he wants to hear and did the work for Chris and at the end of the day Chris will be attempting to secure yet another internship unless Chris decides to actually do the hard work himself necessary to prove himself in his job. To boot, if it did in fact take another tutor an hour to go over material Chris anticipated going over with me, and Chris actually understands accounting and financial reporting now, it is because of the 3 hours I spent trying to get Chris to comprehend basic accounting and financial reporting first. It means Chris finally absorbed what I was saying and I pulled off yet another miracle teaching someone who demonstrated clear lack of ability.
Theresa is excellent at explaining, reviewing and breaking down all aspects of Accounting for me. She's patient and very knowledgeable. Couldn't be more happy.
She helped me with investments and to understand the concepts between the fair value method and the equity method. I would contact her again for further assistance.
I connected with Theresa a few days before a scheduled tutoring session. Something unexpected showed up on my schedule in which case I needed to reschedule. I gave Theresa this notice 23 hours in advance. Understandably she charged me a cancellation fee; however, she cited it was because she was reserving a room and had already prepared material for the session. I was confused because when we spoke on the phone she mentioned the building would be vacant and locked, and I would need to bring the material as she would assist me with what I needed. In the email I received from Theresa upon the cancellation fee, she also mentioned that if I rescheduled a time for the same week then she would deduct that fee from our session. I have tried reaching out to Theresa and I have been ignored.
Only someone who didn't really want the lesson to begin with would write this kind of feedback and I was not ignoring Liam to boot. This was going to be our first lesson and he does not even know my work schedule, making Liam the inconsiderate and disrespectful one. We had two hours scheduled and I planned my day and weekend around this planned session. If LIam really wanted a lesson he would have called me to reschedule, but he never did call me. If Liam really wanted a lesson, he would have asked about rescheduling, suggesting a specific day and time option(s) for the rescheduled date, when he cancelled on short notice via text, but he didn't. My guess is he didn't want to pay $60 per hour and had no intent to reschedule, but when he saw the cancellation fee, he was upset he was going to be paying anyway due to his short cancellation, so he thought he would write this incorrect unfair bridge burning feedback out of spite for the cancellation fee, and possibly also in hopes the feedback would lead to WyzAnt crediting back the fee.. He cancelled on the 21st with a text message and I responded on the morning of the 22nd asking if he wanted to reschedule and he ignored me all day, so I submitted the cancellation fee that evening. I sent another text message on the morning of the 23rd and then focused on my project which had a 25th deadline and needed 100% of my attention. My cell phone is not designed to alert me when a text message comes through and because I had a project deadline I needed to focus on, I didnt check my text messaging the rest of the day. The next thing I know I see a notice from WyzAnt via email on the 24th, one day after my follow-up inquiry to Liam asking whether or not he intended to reschedule, saying I had Liam's feedback, and I was astounded by the rudeness and unfairness of the feedback as well as the misleading and false information contained in the feedback. If Liam really wanted the lesson to begin with, why would he create feedback of this nature versus calling me to discuss rescheduling? If I offered to reschedule and deduct the cancellation fee, then why would he not make every effort to call me and give us time to set something up versus provide this bridge burning false misleading feedback one day after I text messaged him again when he didn't pick up to ask about rescheduling? Also, Liam makes it seem like we didnt discuss me putting together some of my own material for the session and reserving the conferencing room. He starts out saying the cancellation fee was understandable, so he can come across as more believable in the subsequent sentences designed to make me look like the bad guy. Liam is the only one who was inconsiderate and disrespectful in cancelling on short notice, ignoring me on the 22nd as I tried to reschedule with him, and then submitting his false misleading feedback with purposefully omitted facts and misleading statements. His actions reflect he didn't want to pay the $60 per hour rate, otherwise he would not have burned a bridge with his feedback and provided such feedback one day after my inquiry into his intentions to reschedule. My profile and history with WyzAnt students since 2011 supports I am not someone who would be disrespectul and inconsiderate and I did not deserve this negative feedback which taints an otherwise positive 5 star quality profile. Luckily I know that anyone with common sense can see Liam, and not me, was the inconsiderate disrespectful one. And Liam proved himself to be one who lacks integrity with his actions and false misleading bias unfair feedback.
Theresa was a life saver for me. I had no idea about what I was doing with my accounting problems, but when Theresa explained it seemed like I knew it all along. Theresa is patient and knows her stuff. I highly recommend her.
Theresa was really good at explaining the mechanics of solving the problems we had to work with. She really impressed me when she went out of her way to meet me at the last minute. She is a real professional. I will definitely use her again!
Theresa really knows accounting and she is an excellent tutor. She is flexible with schedules and takes the time to explain to you so that you understand and retain the knowledge. She helped me get an "A" on my final exam for my graduate course. Thank you Theresa!
She was very understanding about the budget I had and was very flexible and went over all the material very thoroughly! I aced my exam and am really glad I found a tutor who explained the material in a way I could easily understand! Highly Recommended!
This was my first time using Wyzant. It was very pleasant. I had no problems. My tutor was really great, she helped me a lot!!!! She also explained a few things I was stuck on. And she knows accounting. I will use her in the future.
Thank you Latonya for the kind words. I enjoyed the lesson and meeting you as well.
To benefit any potential employer or student who may read this feedback, I would like to take this opportunity to elaborate on the Lesson, as this one involved not only accounting, but Excel usage. I have used Excel for more than 10 years, and have developed and worked with many complex spreadsheets utilizing multiple applications, functions, and micros, etc., simultaneously within a single workbook over the years.
The assignment required Latonya to create journal entries from various described period activity, and then develop financials in Excel based on the known prior year financial account balances and the new period activity.
I not only assisted Latonya with identifying needed journal entry corrections, explaining the "why" to any correction, but also showed Latonya how to develop a trial balance and financials in an efficient manner using Excel, establishing cell links to other cells and spreadsheets within the workbook to mitigate the risk of input error and improve the efficiency of the compilation process for future use.
I enjoyed sharing my knowledge of a better way to approach the compilation process in Excel in addition to sharing my expertise in accounting, especially the financial reporting component of accounting, as this is one of my favorite parts of the accounting process!
Theresa was able to help me in my accounting course immediately. It was apparent that she has a mastery of this subject and that she has worked in this field extensively. She recognized where I was struggling and focused in on these areas until I understood. I recommend Teresa as a tutor that can make a difference in your studying.
Theresa B. was selected as a tutor for a student who is taking intermediate accounting at SMU. She was very sensitive to needs, weaknesses, your schedule and very patient. Would highly recommend as a tutor. First exam he made an A. Results speak for themselves.
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.
