Business

Before I received my MBA in Finance and Quantitative Studies, I graduated with my MA in English and a teaching certification in English. I have taught and tutored for several years, including teaching at risk students in NYC.

While working on Wall Street, I worked on the development of portfolio and trading systems. I also trained my clients on all software that I participated in developing. That makes 18 years of training. This experience, I believe, uniquely qualifies me to to serve as a tutor with WyzAnt.

Series 7

I have over 18 years of experience on Wall Street in the financial markets--equities and fixed income, foreign exchange, futures. This knowledge allowed me to successfully pass my own Series 7 exam. With my teaching background, I am an outstanding substitute teacher and tutor.

Study Skills

Through my own undergraduate and graduate studies and multiple degrees, I can tell you I've learned how to study! This is to say that the study skills I have learned I, in turn, I teach to my students. I'm a real planner. I write out all my school assignments. Next, I guestimate the amount of time each task will take. I add a percentage overhead for interruptions, additional preparation in order to do the homework. Then I prioritize my assignments.
Finally, you plan your day to reach your goals. This approach tames any anxiety you might have. You are assured you have enough time to complete your work. No more crazy-making anxiety. This is a good thing!

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
