I graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Economics (Minor in Mathematics and Political Science). After three years as a Naval Officer I returned to Stanford for an MBA (finance). I worked for a public accounting firm for two years and qualified for my CPA. I spent my career in finance in Silicon Valley, ending as the treasurer of a $750 million company. I am currently retired in Tallahassee, Florida and have taken up tutoring as something interesting to do during retirement. I have spent several years tutoring Florida State and local high school students. My style is informal, and I like to ensure that my students learn by doing as opposed to my doing the work for them. I have had very positive feedback from my students as to their satisfaction with my services.
