My teaching methodology is to target the area in which a student is struggling, drill down to the root cause, and ensure the student comprehends the core accounting principles that will enable him/her to apply to the majority of typical practice questions.
I am a fourth-year Accounting major with three semesters of experience as a TA for first year financial accounting. I also have 15 months of working experience in financial accounting/reporting with Wells Fargo, which gives me a real-world viewpoint of accounting as well.
