I am a retired professor of finance who enjoys tutoring grades three through college in mathematics and physics. I particularly enjoy figuring out how to present topics in ways that meet the needs of particular students. I like to see the “light bulb go off." I have tutored or been a teacher for over ten years.
I started off in college as a physics major, with a minor in math, but switched to investment management after one year of graduate school. I worked for many years in the investment management business, mostly figuring out how to apply mathematics and computers to investing, but also teaching investment professionals about quantitative investment concepts. Later, I taught undergraduate and graduate finance at Fordham University and other schools.
I have been an associate editor of several professional journals, including the financial analysts journal and the Journal of Investment Management. I have a Ph.D. in finance and economics from NYU. I have published over 50 papers in professional and academic journals.
I have tutored subjects that include mathematics (grades 4 to college), statistics (high school and college), physics (high school and college), finance, and economics. Schools students attend include Ransom Everglades Preparatory, Gulliver Academy, Gulliver Preparatory, St. Luis Covenant School, Pinecrest Elementary, Cushman Academy, University of Miami, Columbia University, and Fordham University.
