Approved subjects are in bold.

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.


I received a degree in accounting from Purdue University in 1981. In 1985, I passed the Uniform CPA exam and was awarded a CPA certificate in the state of Illinois. For 30 years I held numerous financial and accounting positions that required the application of fundamental and advanced accounting principles and practices. I continue to help undergraduate and graduate level students understand the fundamental principles of accounting and their application in real world situations.


30+ years working as a CPA in industry in companies ranging from $25 million to over 4 billion in annual revenue. These companies were both private and public and single location to multinational. I was responsible for areas ranging from Accounting and Finance to HR, Purchasing, and IT.

Career Development

In over 30 years of working in multiple Finance and Accounting roles, I have had the privilege of managing teams of 1 to over 110. These roles provided the opportunity to lead, mentor, coach and assist many, many individuals with their career development, career planning, skills, leadership assessments and personality assessments.

I have had the good fortune to hire many individuals over the years using a variety of interview approaches and techniques. My preferred approach is behavioral based.

Public Speaking

I am a certified coach, trainer and speaker and a founding partner with The John Maxwell Team. John Maxwell was recently voted as the #1 leadership guru in the world. We coach, teach, and speak on leadership and leadership related topics to corporations, industry groups, small businesses, individuals, students and entrepreneurs.

Tax Preparation

I am a CPA and have prepared tax returns for individuals and small business for over 30 years.
