I'm a native English speaker with over 15 years of experience in accounting and finance. I began my career in investment banking on Wall Street in New York. Without any prior experience whatsoever in either accounting or finance, I initially struggled with accounting, finance, and financial modeling when I first started working. About a year later, I had my "ah-ha!" moment and then thought, "You know, this stuff is not that difficult. Why do they teach it in a way that's so hard to learn?"
I teach people finance, accounting, and Excel financial modeling that is more intuitive and use everyday examples that anyone can relate to. I love helping people get to their "ah-ha!" moment, because I remember how it felt for me.
I was a teaching assistant for graduate level accounting and financing courses, for both the full-time and executive programs, at Columbia University where I earned my Master's degree; I received very positive feedback from students for breaking down accounting and finance concepts in a way that is easy for non-quantitative people to understand. I am also a finance instructor at UC Berkeley Extension. Professionally, I have worked on financial transactions ranging from several million to several billion dollars. I am currently developing a website to help entrepreneurs learn faster.
I will review your questions and materials (if any) prior to each session, so that you will get the most out of each tutoring hour. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm a native English speaker with over 15 years of experience in accounting and finance. I began my career in Read more

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.
I have been providing career development guidance for many years and in a variety of ways.
I hold workshops related to career development including one on salary negotiations. I also do this for other educational organizations, but it's for their own students and not publicly publicized.
I have also managed departments and have been responsible for hiring, promoting, and otherwise managing my employees. I have also guided my staff on determining what they want to do with their careers and ensuring that they received the appropriate training. One of the employees who reported to me at my recent company wrote a LinkedIn recommendation about me.
And finally, I have provided career development advice to professional women regarding jobs as well as how to communicate with and manage current or potential employers. So much so that people have suggested that I become an executive coach; I have been looking into the certification of that.
