My philosophy on teaching is to work through any lessons with practical experience and common examples. I like to make sure that a student does not memorize the procedure to solve an accounting problem, but to make sure that the student can think through the problem.
I have a teaching degree as well as a certification in accounting and my MBA. I currently teach at a county college, and have taught at a college level for 15 years. I enjoy teaching, and have always put the student first.
I look forward to meeting new students that I can help through accounting so that the student has an appreciation for accounting, and can apply it to their life.

What is your teaching philosophy?
To work with the student so that the student realizes the background and all necessary information to truly understand a subject and not to just answer questions. I also believe that all learning should have a practical application.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would introduce myself and ask them to do the same. I would ask where the student was having problems and then ask them to retreat in their thoughts to when they first experienced difficulty. I would work from that point forward. If it were homework that the student needed help on, I would try to give background and make the lesson practical.
