Controller with MBA offers help with business courses in the Spring/Woodlands, TX area

Methodology

BS in Finance - LSU
MBA - University of Phoenix

I have twenty years experience in manufacturing, budgeting, project analysis, and managerial accounting. I help students learn by doing so they can apply theory to real world scenarios, allowing them to understand the material in a more permanent manner.

Background

I have been facilitating classes online at University of Phoenix for seven years, teaching Managerial Accounting and Legal Aspects of Business to graduate students. I often help my non-accounting students with some of the more challenging material so they can grasp the concepts and see how the material is used in the real world.
