The Ultimate Accounting Refresher Course: Projects

Justin spent the time working through the course materials in Financial Performance of a Company and giving very practical examples. It really helped me because I do not deal with Financial Statements day to day - so to help put the academic into practice was great Thank you Justin

Justin made the impossible happen for me. Never id I think I would understand (like actually understand) what and how Accounting works, especially with zero knowledge two weeks prior to my final exam. I felt confident and almost excited going into my test! I can't thank him enough for his efforts and incredibly efficient ways of teaching. Without hesitation the only tutor to consider! Thanks again Justin
