Teaching would be a great way for an investment banker and securities analyst to give back to the profession, at least that is what a professor friend told me.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Accounting

I have completed approximately twenty hours of undergraduate and graduate level accounting course work in intermediate, managerial and financial accounting. Knowledge of the principals of accounting are a critical element of my work as a securities analyst. I am a member of the NYSSA Corporate Reporting Committee, which has provided a convenient platform to remain current on changes in Generally Accepted Accounting Principals.

Business

As the founder of an independent securities research firm, I have personal experience with the challenges that face entrepreneurs. I can help with developing a business plan for the purpose of raising capital, analyzing financial statements to improve profitability, among other important business functions.

Economics

My major as an undergraduate was economics, including microeconomics, macroeconomics and international economics. Additionally, I have a master of business administration with an emphasis on international business and trade, which included a strong economics element. Third, I am a holder of the Charter for Financial Analysts, which requires knowledge of economics as applied to financial decision making.

Finance

My experience includes over twenty years as an investment banker and securities analyst, during which I have used the principals of finance in a variety of investment decisions. For example, I have intimate knowledge of a variety of securities valuation methodologies. I currently run in independent research firm in which we use detailed financial statement analysis as part of a securities selection process. I earned the designation of Chartered Financial Analyst is 1998 and have completed the minimum recommended continuing education in each year since 2000.

GMAT

I have considerable experience in successful exam preparation and passage in the financial profession, including the GMAT, CFA Exams and FINRA licensure exams. I attribute this success to an efficient and effective preparation approach and to highly focused strategies for exam execution.

Each year we turn a calendar over to January 1st and remarkably feel like it is a new beginning. For many it is just one more day in the count down to January final exams.

For those who are struggling in a formal... read more

It was bound to happen. After hundred of hours of successful tutoring sessions with students reporting improved test results and positive learning experiences, I met my first dissatisfied student. This was not a student exactly…rather a professional preparing for a licensure exam required for his job. He had already taken the exam and failed, resulting in a suspension of his work until the... read more
