I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with three majors: Economics (concentrating in Finance), International Studies, and French. I currently work in an asset management firm in midtown Manhattan.
You could say that I'm a reformed investment banker. After three years in that business, I want to give something back to the community. I've had the privilege of a diverse education and bounced around Wall Street for six years, so I can offer tutoring in these areas:
- Finance / Accounting / Excel: I majored in Finance from Wharton, I'm a CFA charterholder, and I have worked on more Excel spreadsheets than you can shake a stick at. I can address a wide range of topics, including how to read financial statements, corporate finance and valuation, what the heck is a VLOOKUP function, and personal finance.
- Spoken Mandarin Chinese: I was born in China, speak Chinese with my parents, and go back to China often to see extended family, so I've kept up my Beijing Chinese accent despite being in New York all these years.
- English / reading / writing / SAT verbal and writing: I scored an 800 on the SAT verbal, the SAT II Writing, and the SAT II Literature tests. Even though I work in finance, I'm still an avid reader and love rereading classics like Wuthering Heights from time to time. I'm also a grammar stickler.
- French: I majored in French and spent a whole year in Paris during my junior year.
So there you have it. I am more than happy to set up a complementary first session to understand your tutoring needs and work out a plan so that you get the most out of your time and money.
