Full-Time, 10 + Years of Experience I received an MBA from S. I. U. E. with emphasis in finance, computer science and accounting. I tutored college students in finance. My undergraduate degree is also in business, with a minor in music. I have taught piano lessons for 18 years. I currently play organ at church and enjoy all types of music. I have played in music groups that have traveled around the world. Traveling and learning other experiences are also a great joy of mine. I have a great love of learning and sharing knowledge with others and helping others learn and grow. My life's goal is to help as many people learn as I can. The best way that a student can help me is to WANT to learn. If a student truly wants to learn, then I will do whatever I can to help them learn. If they Read more do not want to learn then the process is much more difficult for all involved. It can still be done but not as efficiently. I work well with people of all socioeconomic backgrounds, and also any religion, race, or ethnic background. I especially like working with younger children teaching them how to read. My favorite subject in school was math. I taught myself algebra in 8th grade. My math teacher still says to this day that I was the smartest student he has ever had. I love all kinds of math including finance, accounting, logic, statistics, and enjoy working with numbers. I have done income taxes for 22 years. I managed a tax office in Colorado and have worked at the Department of Revenue and also for the Federal Government.
