I graduated summa cum laude with my undergraduate accounting degree. By Fall 2019, I will have completed the graduate accounting program at CSUS with my masters degree in accountancy. I plan to teach undergraduates after graduation.
I have worked in consumer finance, real estate, and banking for more than twenty years and have a passion for numbers. My current position is accountant for a governmental agency.
Outside of work, I am kept busy by my husband and three children.
As a tutor, I listen closely, offer tips when needed, and provide lesson plans or additional practice, if requested. I have experience with students from elementary school through grad school, plus adult learners and I can cater my sessions to meet a variety of learning needs. I respond promptly and am more than willing to work with students to schedule sessions that are convenient and fit their scheduling needs.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Every student is unique. Whether you learn best visually, through verbal explanation, with repetition or some other way, I can help walk you through the concepts to develop a lasting understanding.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session, we will determine where you are and where you want or need to be. We will figure out how you learn best, how I can help the most, and jump right in.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can teach you study techniques and help you discover what tools will work best for you.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
We will celebrate your accomplishments. Each new session will begin with a refresher from the last so we can pick up where we left off and keep moving forward.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
We can go as slowly or swiftly as you prefer. If a particular skill or concept proves difficult, we can approach it in a variety of ways until one clicks.
