About Joshua

About me: I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern New Hampshire University with a B.S. in Finance/Economics. In my finance career, I am a Financial Analyst at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood-- prior to that I was a management consultant, specializing in financial analysis and metrics.

Luckily, I was born gifted in quantitative analysis, and so naturally I gravitated towards the worlds of math and economics. I tutor throughout greater Los Angeles, where I have built a strong reputation for delivering only the highest quality educational services to all of my students, both in person and online. I am experienced in tutoring all fundamental areas of economics and finance, as well as several different math disciplines. (including college statistics!)

I choose to tutor because I genuinely enjoy helping people realize their full potential. I strive to always operate with the highest levels of personal care and professional conduct in all of my tutoring sessions. My students may contact me at any time, for any reason, to receive the individual attention that they need as they work toward achieving their academic goals.

I look forward to working with you!

Jose,

You asked me to meet you with absolutely zero notice. During rush hour. In Los Angeles. I didn't read your book for 20 minutes, but for like 30 seconds. I worked an entire day as a financial anaylyst, then skipped dinner, drove 45 minutes straight to you, and had no time to review the concepts. I have my own notes and formula pages that I use for statistics because NOBODY has every single formula for every single technique memorized. You don't know that because you're an intro student who is struggling.

If you had a problem with my service then you should have taken it up with me directly. And you should definitely not ask someone to meet you in less than an hour, across Los Angeles' rush hour, while also expecting them to be 100% prepared for absolutely anything you could be throwing at them. That is just not realistic. This is why good tutors quit the business. Best of luck with your education, academic and otherwise.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Economics

I earned my BS in economics, magna cum laude (while double majoring in finance), and I currently work full-time for Paramount Pictures as a financial analyst. I tutor in my spare time because possessing a solid grasp of economics is required of anyone hoping to either promote to/beyond the corporate manager level or successfully run their own business, and we (the world economy), absolutely need all of you to do those things one day. I have witnessed first hand many times just how bad some of today's professors are at teaching many of the mathematical techniques in modern economics, not because they are bad at economics, but because they just don't know how to relate the material to today's students. This is where I have always excelled. I've just always been able to explain complex topics simply and efficiently, to anyone.

Each semester, I tutor dozens of graduate/undergraduate students in all levels of economic coursework (Intro/101 & 102, intermediate micro/macro, econometrics, applied subjects, etc...) from every major college or university in Los Angeles. I assure you my five star rating is well-deserved.

Finite Math

I passed applied finite mathematics in college with above a 98% final grade.
