Background/Tutoring Credentials

My name is Susan, and I am the owner and tutor for Account for Success.  I started teaching Accounting over 25 years ago, but found that I enjoyed the one-on-one time I spent with students in office hours far more than time spent in a formal classroom setting.  Starting in 2008, I began to tutor students in introductory accounting courses.

Some of those early students were Accounting majors, and they asked if I could assist them with upper-level courses as well.  Gradually I added junior and senior level accounting courses to my tutoring offerings as well as MBA-level Financial and Managerial Accounting.

Today, I operate Account for Success here in my new home of Johnson City, TN.  During my previous tutoring experience in the San Diego, CA area, I assisted students at several different universities.  As a result, I am quite comfortable working with different textbooks and professors who all have their own unique teaching styles.

As far as credentials go, I earned a B.S. in Accounting from UT Knoxville, and a MAcc and PhD in Business from Arizona State University.  I passed the CPA exam shortly after earning my undergrad degree, and have maintained the certification to this day.  Finally, I have served on the Accounting faculty at the following schools--

   *  Arizona State University (graduate teaching assistant)
   *  University of Tennessee - Knoxville (full-time tenure track faculty)
   *  University of San Diego (full-time tenured faculty)
   *  University of Alabama - Birmingham (part-time, adjunct online faculty)

Beyond the professional credentials, I love college football and the beautiful TN outdoors.
