In my experience as a tutor, which began in 2007, I have found that the students are the central focus of every lesson, and the subject is best comprehended as a reflection of the student's internal learning skills.
I began my tutoring career as an adjunct professor at Kingsborough Community College, teaching history to some of the remedial students, as a volunteer. This expanded to the point where I was asked to be an adjunct professor at Wagner College in Staten Island, where I taught finance for brief stints during the summer.
The character of a true professional is not so much a revealed character, as it is a representation of the ideas of success in their client’s mind. The truly ideal candidate ends up successful, but not only in an economic sense, as well in the fact that they have a career with prestige. I am a working professional stock broker, so I know the business in a more intimate sense than the average tutor, and I feel that by bringing this experience to the table, I am able to offer a great deal.
My methods are simple: we meet initially, briefly describe our backgrounds to one another, then we get down to business. The course text is our palette, and we will go to it for necessary verification, but it is rather the nature of the exam itself that is most critical to determining success. The exams function very much like standardized tests, and the students must be prepared for this in order to achieve success.
I look forward to assisting those who apply to further success in their financial careers.
