    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;
    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!
    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.

    One-on-One Online tutoring in Finance, Economics & Accounting from High School to Masters, CFA, FRM by an experienced tutor
    I am a tutor with over 16 years of teaching experience as of 2020 and students from across the globe. I teach one-on-one online (over Skype/ Google Hangout and other media) using a pen tablet and the screen-share feature. I teach from high school level to Masters level including professional certifications. I have helped several students from various parts of the world do remarkably well in several subjects like Corporate Finance, Investments, Accounting, Microeconomics, CFA, FRM. But more than that, I trust that if I can replace fear of a subject with love for it, then I would have truly made a difference to the student.

    Bicky
    Accountancy Tutor from London (ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA).
    I have been teaching different types of students on different levels since 2008 and my fundamental objective is to get them through decently. Considering myself as a problem solver for students has given me an edge over others and has made me confident. Equipped with a strong working knowledge of real world accountancy & finance has conceptually made me very clear with the subjects of listed professional bodies. Post exam qualified experience has enabled me to evaluate students' understanding on particular subjects and then deciding the level of approach. Students who are novices would be given attention from the basics & those who are familiar with the concepts and need a little push, would be moved directly on to past exam papers and examination kit. I am patient and committed to my students. I firmly believe in assessing the student's understanding on a particular subject, level of competence and then hitting the high notes, giving top priority to exam techniques, question bank and past papers. My students come from different walks of life. From Domestic to International, Privately funded/State funded, Students include from top 10 accountancy firms: KPMG, EY, Grant Thornton etc... University students covered from the following institutions: Birmingham LSE Manchester Coventry Warwick Aston

    Dolly
    English Language Coaching (Communication, Social, Business)
    My name is Dolly and I'm here to help you improve your pronunciation, expression and to become a more confident English speaker. My specialization is ineffective communication. I guide and support learners to reach fluency, speaking clearly and naturally using real-life situations through individually designed courses to get them where they want to be. The program is focused upon : 1) Pronunciation Training -  Speak Clearly 2) General English Language Teaching - Speak Correctly 3) Conversation and Communication Skills - Speak Confidently My clients are individuals from all walks of life ranging from students to corporate executives and business owners. They all have different needs for learning the English Language. My aim is to get them communicating quickly and effectively, either in a social or business environment. At the beginning of each course, I will complete a needs analysis report with my student. I ask them why they want or need to learn the English Language. Is it for social or business reasons? If it is for business reasons, are there particular areas they need to focus on such as the language of meetings, negotiations, emails, telephone or networking? Once the needs are identified, I will customize the course and include plenty of variety in the lessons, eg, fluency, vocabulary, listening, reading and role-plays. I believe in engaging with my students and they are always encouraged to express their opinions as this is how one progresses with a language. Please let me know when is a good time to contact you for a chat to move this forward. Best regards, Dolly

    I'm a CPA and Registered Auditor from Italy with roughly 15 years of experience in Business accounting and in general Finance under all aspects.

So I would like to put my knowledge to the service of students who have difficulties to understand some fundamental principles of the Business Accounting and of the Finance in general.
