Assistant Professor of Accounting,

Al has taught both FT and adjunct at Wilmington College, the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College, Southern State Community College, Daymar College, and Gallipolis Career College since 2011 in the business field specializing in Accounting and Finance. Al believes teaching is a “calling” and conducts classes with passion and enthusiasm. He applies practical applications in addition to theory from his 30 years of industry experience.

Al is a native of Lancaster, Ohio. Al holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance and Business Management from Franklin University in Columbus. Al also holds a Master’s in Taxation Degree from Capital University Law School.

Al owns and operates Apple Tax Preparation Services, which he brings in current up to date trends in to the classroom.

Al has been thrilled to work with students since launching Wilmington College VITA site during the 2016 tax filing season and helping the students prepare and file tax returns with the IRS, Ohio, and other states.  This is one of the “hands-on learning-hands-on living” applications Al strives to provide the students. The site files over 100 returns and some years exceeds 200 returns with the help of student volunteers from all majors. The site has earned a perfect 100% IRS rating each year!
