WHAT I DO:
I tutor MBA/undergrads, corporate executives, and CFA
candidates. I cover finance
, the CFA exam material, business statistics
and other related areas.
WHY YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME:
I'm probably the best accounting/finance tutor in Chicago. On a referral basis, I have worked with individuals as far away as Europe (Turkey, Germany, etc.) and Asia (India, Australia, etc.).
I have a very strong mix of real world and academic experience experience. I focus on taking people beyond basic formulas or academic exercises to understanding contextually why certain analysis matter and how they relate to real world scenarios.
MY EDUCATION BACKGROUND:
I've a masters degree in accounting and a bachelors degree in finance from Tulane University. I am a CFA Charterholder. I passed every exam on the first attempt.
MY WORK EXPERIENCE BACKGROUND:
I have eight years working experience at multiple investment
partnerships (hedge fund and venture capital). I was a generalist/special situations analyst and venture capitalist primarily focused on the technology sector.
In private/venture capital, I have significant boardroom experience and worked on situations ranging from distressed restructurings to start-ups with nothing more than IP and a powerpoint
slidedeck. Firms I’ve invested in and worked with have been sold to Oracle
, Intel and several other well known companies. I've funded companies with well known C
-level executives like the former CFO of Intel and the co-founders of Qualcomm and Broadcomm.
In public company/hedge fund work, I've worked on various accounting frauds/restatements, special situations (spin-offs, etc.) and other equity generalist situations. I am more of an equity person than a debt person. However, I have done a bit of distressed debt work.
MY TUTORING EXPERIENCE:
I've tutored people off and on as a personal hobby. It’s expanded more in recent years, largely through referrals. I have tutored people from many organizations including:
Wharton, Duke, Creighton, Notre Dame, Northwestern, DePaul, New York University, Columbia, Stanford, Univ of Wisconsin, and Univ of Chicago. I have worked with executives from major companies such as Chicago Mercantile Exchange, UBS, JPMorgan Chase, Medtronic, Takeda, Northern Trust, and other well known institutions.
