About Ray

I have Bachelor degrees in both Accounting and Management. During my career I have worked as a consultant for numerous companies. One of the main issues I had to address was employee training. I had never thought of myself as an educator but everyone said that I was good at it.

I learned that the key to teaching anyone is to first determine that person's level of understanding of the subject matter. Then I determine how they learn best. Some learn by doing; others need to study printed material first.

I have used both programs for over twenty years. I've done advanced things like pivot tables but most people just need to learn the basics.

I have used different versions of QuickBooks for years. It's a good system in that you don't need an accounting background to use it (although a little knowledge definitely helps).

Over my career, I have had the opportunity to teach a lot of people the fundamentals of accounting and business. I think employee training is one of the biggest weaknesses of companies today. Employees are just thrown in and expected to perform.

I'm downsizing my career and only working when I find an exciting opportunity. My oldest daughter graduated from LSU two years ago and began her teaching career as a second-grade teacher. Seeing her sacrifice to help 'her kids' learn has inspired me to try and give back.

Approved subjects

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.

Business

I have Bachelor's degrees in both Accounting and Management. I have had a successful thirty-year career in business as both an accountant and a business manager.

I have turned around several businesses by applying basic business concepts.

QuickBooks

I have spent most of my career using mid-to-high-level accounting programs like Great Plains, SAP, and Oracle. Since QuickBooks is actually a bookkeeping program, rather than an Accounting program, I have found it extremely easy to learn. It generally follows the basic accounting concepts but it hides all accounting terms behind everyday language.
