"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." ~ William Arthur Ward
As a tutor for ten years, I have come across almost every type of student. Regardless of the subject, each student has helped me refine not only my teaching skills but my ability to manage and inspire students. Teaching is a challenge. Each student brings a different set of strengths, weakness, and a unique way of understanding subject matter. When I began tutoring, I thought my job was to demonstrate how to use a formula or help a student memorize a set of facts. This was far from the truth. What I learned was tutoring went far beyond the surface of numbers and words, but guiding and inspiring a student to levels and achievements that only we can see as teachers. My goal as a tutor is not to help a student pass an exam, but create a true learning environment to help them discover passions, accelerate in subject matters, and have fun in the process.
In the past year, I have been especially active in creatively tutoring students and using "out of the box" techniques to drive concepts home. My current students include an Undergraduate student at Pace University in NYC majoring in Finance and Accounting, a Graduate Student at the NYU Stern School of Business, and a high school student focusing on Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and the SAT math section.
I have personally always excelled in Math. In high school, I cruised through Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Pre-Calc, earning an "A" in each subject. In college, my math skills only became more refined, I earned an "A+" in Calculus my freshmen year. From there, I went on to earn my degree in Finance with honors.
After college, I earned my Series 7, Series 3, Series 63, Series 65, Life Insurance License, Health Insurance License, and became a Certified Financial Planner (CFP). The CFP is a premier certification that requires 18 months of intensive course work culminated with a 10 hour, 2 day exam testing Insurance Planning, Tax Planning, Estate Planning, Investment Planning, and Retirement Planning.
I have a diverse business background and tutoring resume that makes me an asset to any student.
I currently run my own business and understand the struggles and success of an entrepreneur. This means making good decisions under bad circumstances and things that are not taught in any text book.
I can help future entrepreneurs avoid the mistakes I made.
I took this exam and passed it achieving a score of 91%. I was working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney at the time. In addition, I tutored several colleagues to help them pass the exam.
Currently, I have one student who is taking the exam and I am tutoring him as well.

Incredible Tutor — Joe has been an incredible teacher in terms of helping me understand accounting. Coming from a much different educational background, I was nervous going back to school to take financial accounting courses for work. Joe explained the concepts and made them seem simple.
