Introduction to Accounting for first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors

I have prepared a multi-lesson package for new accounting students discussing & unraveling the importance & relevance of accounting, as well as removing the mystery from accounting. I developed this multi-lesson series for a parent who wanted their student to become intimately familiar with accounting before university classes began. I have revised it to become both a necessary and handy primer for the non-accounting major. It is my perennial favorite to teach both first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors – at the request of both the student or parent!

About Me

I enjoy instilling enthusiasm, explaining accounting theory, as well as answering your questions. If applicable, I will demonstrate how I calculate my answers using an Excel spreadsheet & screen sharing my work via an on-line platform. You can witness first-hand how a practicing CPA approaches a problem. Afterwards I’ll email you the spreadsheet.

Tutoring subjects include: bookkeeping, accounting, intermediate accounting; financial accounting. I do NOT tutor in cost, managerial, or governmental. Practically speaking, I have been a CPA with public accounting experience, as well as, being a Controller for regionally privately held companies for years. Accordingly, I decline tutoring in areas I have not practiced accounting.

Education

St. Ambrose University, Accounting degree with business minor.
CPA license from Texas State Board of Public Accountancy - current.
I maintain the 40 hour annual / 120 hour tri-annual CPE (Continuing Professional Education) requirement

Experience / Qualifications

Corporate Controller for two different regional building material supplies and lumberyards;
Senior Accountant / Assistant Treasurer for global banking organization in their financial trust department;
I appreciate you considering me as an accounting mentor to contribute toward your academic success. I have served both in industry & in public practice of accounting. As a licensed CPA, I enjoy tutoring both accounting & non-accounting undergraduate students and those seeking advanced degrees, such as the MBA. I have dedicated myself to the learning process by helping others. My method of tutoring is to approach each student and inquire which method may best facilitate their style of learning? Do you want to first attempt the accounting question, then allow me to suggest the next logical step? Or perhaps you prefer me to demonstrate how I calculate my answers using an Excel spreadsheet & screen-share my work? Perhaps your method only needs fine tuning with occasional insight; on the other hand, you may want to witness first-hand how a seasoned accounting professional approaches it. During our time together, I’ll attach my spreadsheet with all my notes for your downloading & review. Let’s plan to approach each topic in a manner which best accomplishes your goals, answering all your questions, instilling confidence & enthusiasm in a dry subject, and explaining accounting theory when it's not so obvious. John
The class involves my demonstrating how to execute many Excel special functions. Such as linking information from one spreadsheet tab to another tab; creating V-Look ups, H-Look ups, Pivot Tables, Pivot Charts, Nested If's, Sumif's, "If/Then", “If/And” scenarios among many others. Included in the lesson is an interactive spreadsheet which contains actual working formulas with step-by-step instructions for easy implementation. You will see working, functioning examples of all the Excel functions I teach & explain during the lecture. Excel is one of my specialties. As an experienced CPA who has had both individual and corporate clients, I have constructed both simple to very complex spreadsheets – plus I was always ready to explain how they functioned to my employer, my co-workers, my tax clients, and even auditors!

MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.
