I enjoyed tutoring athletes during my time at LSU in both accounting, history and science. I have a bachelors and masters, majoring in accounting, from LSU.
I worked with Big4 (PwC), Tier2 (Grant Thornton), and a national firm where I was a professional resource that is trained in identifying process improvements for accounting related functions.
For the past two years, I have been the US Accounting Manager for a global firm, where I routinely refer to myself as the "accounting helpdesk".

I attended the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts where I went as high as Calculus 2. I tested out of all math requirements during college aptitude testing, but am reminded daily of my studies as an accountant.

I have the MS Excel Expert Certification.

I am an active CPA in the state of Texas.

Really great at quickly assessing how to help

Derek was quickly able to assess what my son needed to focus on, and on how to communicate most effectively with him. His hands-on approach to drawing out the problems really showed where my son was making errors, and brought his confidence up for his re-test. Derek met with us the same day I contacted him. We'll continue to use his services throughout the season.
