Dr John

I am a Professor of Accounting with over thirty-five years experience teaching accounting to college students, undergraduate and MBA university students as well as CMA candidates  seeking to earn their Professional Certified Management Accountant Designation.

           I achieved my Certified Management Accountant Designation 40  years ago. With that I then earned my Masters of Business Administration degree and later a PHD in accounting.  

I have developed and will continue to develop a number of courses in both Financial Accounting and Management Accounting for you -  a college or university student (or even a secondary student) to help you to achieve the best result in your undergraduate accounting course. If you get an "A" from me I guarantee you will get an "A" from your accounting prof.

For Graduate students, I have a course to prepare those of you who do not have a business degree for the Masters of Business Administration. Also I have a course at the masters level called Managerial Accounting.

For CMA Candidates, I have courses  to prepare you  to successfully pass  their Certified Management Accounting Exams offered by  Institute of Management Accountants.
