I started the business in 2005 and have been devoted to educating students and professionals in accounting. During the day I worked full-time as a senior accountant for a company on the NYSE. And, during the evenings and weekends, I prepared taxes, performed accounting and bookkeeping services, prepared tutoring materials and tutored. Early in my career, I became frustrated with the system of review courses available to prepare individuals for the CPA exam. So, I decided to forego taking the CPA exam and instead study the material to help others past the CPA exam. In July 2017, I published Financial Accounting and Reporting Study Guide Notes which is a compilation of my notes used in tutoring and is available in all major online bookstores such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Google Books, etc.
In July 2018, I resigned from my position as a senior accountant to focus full-time on the business. The Accounting and CPA Exam Tutoring Service LLC is a professional accounting service that provides accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, tax, and tutor’s undergraduate accounting majors and CPA exam candidates.
