I lecture using examples, questions and discussion. Discussion and questions are encouraged but there are no questions that I consider stupid. There will be no tests and limited homework unless the students feel they need it to better understand. I strive to prepare students for college accounting.
Lessons will begin in January 2021.
I am a graduate of Texas A & M University with a Masters of Business Administration and a Certified Public Accountant. I have experience in public accounting, banking, retail sales, fund accounting and international accounting. I have taught classes in college in the evening.
