I deeply respect the tremendous responsibility and the opportunity of having a hand in shaping Queens College’s (QC) future business professionals. I have a passion for helping students. I have been successful in helping students pass the CPA exam at QC. I currently teach Taxation, Advanced, Intermediate, Governmental, Not for Profit and Auditing Accounting. I taught all mentioned accounting courses in the past, including Cost at Baruch as well as the BEC and FAR sections of the CPA exam at the Becker. My diverse leadership exposure in strategic planning & budgeting, business management, accounting, auditing, tax, cost-saving strategies, large scale system implementation, construction projects management, and running an independent CPA firm for a while joined with my teaching capacity, leaves me with a unique opportunity to present my courses with appropriate real-life examples.
