About Theresa

As a CPA, with Big 4 experience, with my MBA and certification in internal audit as well, I am an excellent source to assist one desiring above average results in their accounting, math, and business courses. As a student, I broke the grading curves to my classmates' dismay in my accounting courses, and passed all 4 parts of the CPA exam in November 2002 with above average results. These credentials validating my above average knowledge and ability, along with more than 10 years of industry and public accounting experience in the business world, affords me the opportunity to assist you in obtaining above average results in your accounting, math, and other business courses. I have proven success tutoring university students to an A and can do the same for you.

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, 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 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 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 the 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.

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!

Very patient and knowledgeable tutor — 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 r ...
