Hi there! I am an MBA from the Simon School - University of Rochester with concentrations in Finance and Competitive Strategy. I have a Bachelor's degree in Accounting from the University of Ghana. Prior to school I was a consultant at Ernst & Young and prior to moving here I was working as a Financial Analyst for a small start up in Akron. I also have considerable tutoring experience from being an academic Coach at the University of Rochester.
In addition to my finance/accounting background I'm an avid world history enthusiast. I write extensively on global issues, finance and international affairs on my blog.
My teaching style includes using humor and practical examples to engage students. I have tons of real world experience to share with students and I have seen this approach work successfully with the first year students I mentored at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY.
I look forward working with local students to help them in areas such as Math, Science, Accounting, Finance, Economics, history, GMAT, GRE, SAT and career advice.
Hi there, I am an MBA from the Simon School, University of Rochester with concentrations in Finance and Competitive Strategy. Prior to business school I worked as a consultant at Ernst & Young. I have considerable business experience both professionally and as a mentor. Before moving to this area I worked with a start-up in Akron that was looking to commercialize two of its patents.
At the University of Rochester, I was an academic coach for first year students. I provided mentoring, tutoring, guidance and career advice to many first year students especially international students that needed help adjusting to US culture. I believe my background and experiences in business will be very relevant and beneficial to anyone that needs tutoring in all areas of business ranging from finance, accounting, economics and business strategy. I hope I can be of help.

Very Knowledgeable and very patient — This is my first time using the WyzAnt website, but I must say, that I was so very relieved that my first lesson was a success.
