About Joseph

My interest in tutoring comes from having seen so many clients and even colleagues struggle with basic business concepts and knowing that there are no bad students, only bad teachers. Often, when a student fails to learn, it is because the instructor failed to meet them where they are at. Are you a hands-on learner? Do you glean information from textbooks and the study of theories and ideas? We all learn differently and, it's my experience that, by meeting a student there they are at, anyone can be taught.

I have two decades of real-world business experience, much of it spent developing and facilitating training programs. I have technical proficiency in: Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and I'm a former Microsoft SharePoint system administrator. I have also worked on QuickBooks and Quasar (Linux accounting / POS software) deployments. I was an accountant at Hennepin County (MN) and owned Big Dog Accounting Solutions. In short, I've actually experienced what you're learning.

I hold both undergraduate and graduate (MBA) degrees from UW River Falls in addition to my two decades of real-world experience. As an undergraduate business student, I focused on accounting and mathematics. Why? To build the skills I'd need as an accountant. Then I finished my graduate work with an emphasis on talent management and how we engage and motivate our employees. My graduate project was a study on turnover in a government call center and development of an on boarding program to reduce turnover that can be tailored to any workplace.

If you want to learn, you can and I will help you do it - but you have to take the first step and reach out.
