« About a year ago or so I was in a bind, I had a project due for my undergraduate 331 accounting class that I had to get at least a 70% on or I would fail. I had really no one to talk to or get help from since I waited until the day before it was due to start working on it. I searched online for tutors and I just happened to find John on a tutoring website. He was extremely helpful on the project. It wasn't that I couldn't do the work, I just needed help organizing the information and really just some guidance to get through the project, since it was a long, drawn, out multi-step accounting project. John was extremely professional and answered all of my questions pertaining to the assignment. I ended up getting a 100% on the project, but if I had not had any help I may have failed the class. I would definitely recommend John to anyone in need of help in accounting. »

Methodology

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 with you?

Perhaps your method only needs fine tuning with occasional insight; on the other hand you 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.

Background

I appreciate you considering me as a your private mentor to contribute toward your academic success. I have served over thirty-five years in both industry & public practice. I am a full-time tutor and have dedicated myself to the learning process.

I have tutored for over five years and have always received high marks and reviews on other platforms.

About a year ago or so I was in a bind, I had a project due for my undergraduate 331 accounting class that I had to get at least a 70% on or I would fail. I had really no one to talk to or get help from since I waited until the day before it was due to start working on it. I searched online for tutors and I just happened to find John on a tutoring website. He was extremely helpful on the project. It wasn't that I couldn't do the work, I just needed help organizing the information and really just some guidance to get through the project, since it was a long, drawn, out multi-step accounting project. John was extremely professional and answered all of my questions pertaining to the assignment. I ended up getting a 100% on the project, but if I had not had any help I may have failed the class. I would definitely recommend John to anyone in need of help in accounting.
