I was educated at University of North Florida, located in Jacksonville, FL where I completed my Bachelors in Accounting and MBA. I also completed 3.5 years of a Biology major and attending University of Florida for a summer semester for a Study Abroad Program in Rome, Italy for 6 weeks. I studied Roman history, Italian Art History and Italian 1 language. I also Studied in Brazil and Florence, Italy. UNF was an excellent International Business School where it has the same accreditation as Harvard Business School, AACSB Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. I am a Certified Public Accountant in both FL and CA as well as a teacher for Certified Continuing Education classes related to Accounting/finance/audit/Business. I am currently obtaining my CFA license (Certified Financial Analyst) and will be studying for my 2nd part of the CFA exam and completing the Breaking into Wall Street program that all Harvard Grad student complete and contains over 300 hours courses. I have tutored High School and College students in science, math, economic, and business/finance/accounting type subjects. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I have also tutored student and adults on the CPA Exam, GMAT, SAT, and ACT standardized tests. I have excellent techniques for studying, and I have successfully taught several ADDHD students – large amount of experience with this learning disorder. I love all subjects as learning is exciting and fun to share together with others to enjoy. I seek to find the type of learner the client may be and will guide the student/adult to achieve success with the most optimal qualities to adapt. I am a fish out of water, as I LOVE to swim. I have taught swimming lessons and lifeguarded in Daytona Beach, FL for about 3 years where I saved several people. During High School I was a soccer player, dancer, swimmer and runner. As well as a gymnast all my life. I come from a large family, three brothers, and I love all people. I have a fun personality that can adapt to all personality types.
