As I mentioned before I considered this experience a real challenge because it tested not just my knowledge but my ethical values and my abilities to work with clients and classmates. One thing I like about this great experience is the people I worked with (the tutors) and my classmates. I really had fun. I would like to thank Monica, Keeling and Nathalie for their dedication, friendship and patience with us because they encouraged me to put forth my best effort and dedication and all the staff at the Vita for their thrust and dedication. In conclusion, looking back at my experiences I realized that I learned a lot not just to do taxes but to deal with people with different personalities. To be a good accountant and do people’s taxes requires not just knowledge of the tax code but also how to deal with different people and their personalities. Since many people do not understand how taxes work, it is important to establish trust with them and make them feel comfortable. There are two sides to this job, a classroom side and a ‘real world’ side and since we are dealing with people and their money, people can be emotional. It is just as important in understanding the human side of the business in addition to understanding the tax code and that is the most important thing I Page 3
