I was born and raised in Spain. In regards to my education I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with concentration in Accounting from Saint Thomas University, in Miami, Florida. In addition, I also hold a Master's degree in Accounting from Strayer University, currently I am pursing a State of Florida CPA (Certified Public Accountant) License. I have opened my own Accounting firm Fast Accounting Services back in 2012 , since them I worked and keep working with Small to Medium-size businesses helping Business owners with their Accounting needs. Moreover, I have been teaching for the past year at Unilatina International College, located in Miramar, FL Financial Administration and Principles of Accounting
I enjoy tutoring because I believe knowledge has not limits and to me being able to pass on part of my knowledge to other people it is very fulfilling. Have students call me or email about their success and seeing them happy it is the best reward a person can received.
Some people tend to acquire knowledge fast that others my teaching philosophy is to keep coming up with different samples and alternatives, such games, jokes in order for my student/s be able at the end of the session to fully understand the topic in question.
I teach Accounting subjects such as Beginning and Intermediate Accounting, Financial Administration as well as all levels of Spanish.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Be able to leave the student with perfect understanding of the subject or topic in question.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Be professional, understanding and patient with the student. The student does not know you and you do not know the student's character and potential yet.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By teaching him learning techniques, and providing real life and motivational examples.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
Explaining how important the topic is, how it is going to affect his future, and how knowledgeable he will become and how this will affect his life.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Practice and practice make perfection. With these students, the most important factor is just being nice and patient.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
Real life examples. For example, he is a business owner and I am his customer or vendor; they tend to understand better when you use them as an example.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Provide a real life example and then let the student practice some questions on the subject; if still the student does not fully understand the subject, I will focus more on getting as much practice in as possible until the student has full control of the subject.
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
Making the subject fun. Provide fun examples, ask the student what would be his/her favorite TV show or something they love to do in their free time, and provide examples based on those scenarios.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I will first explain the subject until they grasp the concept, then provide fun examples; after that I will ask questions to the student to make sure he/she understood the material. If still the student struggles with the topic in question, then I will start providing practice questions. Sometimes by reading the topic the student tends to understand it better.
