I love sharing knowledge with students and being like Yoda who helps them be Luke Skywalker, the hero of their story. I am a CPA with an MBA from Tennessee Tech University, earned my CELTA while teaching English in Korea for a total of nine years, and passed the CPA Exam on my first attempt. I enjoy helping students learn and play a small part in helping them achieve their goals. I have experience teaching ESL and enjoy tutoring CPA Exam candidates. I believe that students can be as successful as they choose to be. Do the work and you can succeed! I enjoy a Q&A style lesson that involves the student in active learning, rather than solely giving lectures. Typically, lessons involve using student materials, i.e. CPA Exam prep courses, coaching as needed, and confirming that they got the correct answer, or explaining how to get it. Yes, I can do lectures, but prefer Q&A. Outside of academia I enjoy owning my own CPA firm, spending time with my family, travel, and being active in church.
