About Eric


Bio

Accounting is a way of thinking about business/money/finances that no one utilizes until they actually learn accounting. That's what makes it so challenging: The new learner has very little context for the subject; it's completely new. However, I will explain it to you to help you understand the WHY of what you are doing, both the theory and importance.

Accounting is a way of thinking about business/money/finances that no one utilizes until they actually learn accounting. That's what makes it so challenging: The new learner has very little context for the subject; it's completely new. However, I will explain it to you to help you understand the WHY of what you are doing, both the theory and importance.

I can be your "go-to" for winter/spring 2022 accounting courses. I have availability at on most weekdays and weekends; I do not list specific hours since my schedule can change weekly. I am currently a professor of accounting at a community college. Previously, I worked in industry as a CPA. I have been tutoring for over 20 years, since I was an undergraduate. I do not currently offer tutoring for the uniform CPA exams, but I may in the future.

As mentioned above, I believe in teaching the "why" of accounting topics. This is because being able to remember and do accounting transactions is both easier to remember and easier to actually do when you know why you are doing it. Many tutors don't follow this approach. Instead, they just give you lists of rules/steps with no explanation as to why the rules exist in the first place. That may cause your homework to be done quickly, but it will leave you high and dry when it comes to exams and, most importantly, when it comes to doing accounting in the real world.

Financial Accounting,

Financial Accounting

I have a master's degree in accounting and teach financial and managerial accounting at a college. I can help you think about accounting concepts so that they make sense and so that you will see how they fit together. This will give you better business insight and decision-making ability and, of course, better grades if you are studying in a formal course! Whether you are a beginner or are in something such as an "intermediate" level, contact me so see how I can help. For INTERMEDIATE-level students, I do preparation before our session, since those are often more difficult topics. Not all tutors offer that kind of preparation.

Peyton, 5 lessons with Eric

He's brilliant AND patient.

Hey, I know you're going to read a ton of reviews on a ton of tutors on this website but, Eric is truly unique. With Eric, you get out exactly what you put in. All you need to succeed in his tutoring is a positive attitude. I interviewed him before I paid him any money and it immediately became clear that he was an incredibly experienced teacher. He makes things so simple and clear when teaching you that the stress in your accounting class drops by half. After working with him for three weeks, I saw my grade in the class go up thirty-five points! I must travel for athletics. He would meet with me late into the evening so that I could learn the content on my own time. One night he taught me until 1AM Est! If you’re looking for an excellent accounting tutor, look no further than Eric!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

he went over the current accounting unit (buy or make decisions) and helped me to truly understand the topic in a way that i resonated with me more than my teacher had taught which was much needed!

David, 4 lessons with Eric

A kind and patient tutor

Eric's method of guidance is superlative to what was offered to me on my own campus. His knowledge of accounting is impressive and specific enough to provide examples from real life. I would definitely recommend his services.

Carter, 6 lessons with Eric

Fantastic experience!

Eric goes through examples in full detail. He is patient and highly knowledgeable. I came out of our session having a better understanding about process costing. I look forward to our future lessons. Thank you!

Jael, 1 lesson with Eric

Very patient, clear and knowledgeable.

I am struggling badly in accounting, to the point where I could say that I am panicking. Eric is a very understanding tutor, very patient to explain into detail and takes his time until you understand each point of the subject. Even after only one session, I feel that I progressed a lot and actually benefited positively from my session.
